Grief happens to everyone but we all handle it differently depending on our life history.
CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: For 2021 my main focus is to help people affected by the unprecedented affects and after affects of this pandemic. If you read my blog, you will see how this pandemic affected me and my family. In California we saw the largest surge of this virus and every day we were bombarded with horrific news, news interviews with families that have lost loved ones or lost their business, and how the stay at home mandate has affected our physical and mental health. You do not need to feel alone, hopeless, scared, and lost. My personal story and skills bring an awareness and empathy perhaps not understood by many.

My expertise is in helping teenagers and adults cope with trauma: a cancer diagnosis, chronic illness, a natural disaster, a pandemic, bullying, a car accident, a divorce, the death of a loved one. Some common responses to trauma are isolation, depression, loss of hope, anxiety, loss of control. Trauma abruptly Disconnects you from yourself and the reality you were accustomed to. Healing is in the Reconnection.

Are you caught in a cycle of stretching towards your highest achievements only to plummet again into anxiety, depression, or grief? Are your moods susceptible to external circumstances, ebbing with highs and lows as do the tides? Trauma, currently or in the past, remembered or lost to consciousness, is stored in our bodies and neural networks and is often the silent culprit behind relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, feelings of shame, inadequacy, suicidality and self-harm. Let's reconnect the pathway to the Self you are meant be.

Have you ever been lost in a dark forest? You may have felt helpless, out of control, very scared, or confused. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, depression, and grief. If so you need someone to hold your hand and walk with you until you get home safely. When you are going through very painful suffering, your brokenness can lead you to discover how your childhood wound might affect your self-esteem and your relationships. I like to work with adult women who have been abused as a child, battered women (intimate partner abuse), and young adult women with childhood wounds.

I have specialized trainings in grief, trauma, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and working with people in creative fields.
Maybe the most important element in therapy, before anything else, is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. My first goal is to build that relationship with you, to create an atmosphere where you feel seen, safe, understood, and inspired to get curious and real about your experience. From there, the work of therapy--though often challenging--can have a spirit of compassionate exploration. We'll look at the experiences that shaped you, what's getting in your way today, and with my support, help you heal, build resilience, self-acceptance, deeper relationships, and a life based on what you value most.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Pasadena grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Pasadena.
