Areas in which I work with clients include depression, anxiety, and grief / loss .
One of the things we have in common is our humanity. Life has its ups, downs, joys and challenges. We can experience significant relationships and events in our lives that greatly impact who we are today. Sometimes it helps to talk with someone about what we are going through and what we have experienced. We may be dealing with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship problems, trauma and everything in-between. Healing can come from working through these issues in therapy.

Accepting new clients April 2023. If you are considering therapy, somewhere inside of you there is hope. Perhaps this is a faint hope that life could be better, to figure out how to respond to a loss , or maybe just to get a break from suffering. Many things probably contributed to where you are today. To work on multipart problems, I use a multipart approach to reconnect you with the things that help you such as nature, nutrition, physical activity, and the embers of hope inside you. Together, we can find a way to adapt to the loss of who you were, the life you had, or the people you loved and counted on.

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.
