I have long been an advocate for the balance of mind and body in order to live our best life. I am a true believer that emotional distress can cause physical pain and illness. I work with all ages and stages. My experience with critically ill and hospice clients has given me a passion to work with people who are grieving. Grief encompasses not only the loss of those we love but includes the loss of unfulfilled dreams and desires due to life difficulties. However, I also feel attuned to the individual who is simply reaching out to grow as an individual.

When something troubling or traumatic happens, it can be life changing. Relief is possible, and I believe that treating trauma should not feel traumatic for you. You can feel lighter and clearer, and regain your focus and happiness. I am a Master certified clinician of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a therapy that uses the power of eye movements to make significant shifts in the way your brain sees and stores a memory. When these shifts happen it also changes the way you feel about the memory.

Grief Therapists

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
