"Are you adjusting to a loss? Questioning your ability to survive a loss? Wondering if you have the energy or desire to adapt to or heal from a loss? Uncertain that you will ever experience joy again? These are examples of normal responses to a significant loss. Experiencing loss is a difficult life challenge and can be devastating at times. Your grieving process may involve multiple symptoms such as: headaches, stomach aches, exhaustion or low energy, anxiety, guilt, confusion, anger, resentment, endless crying, shame, difficulty focusing, problems with eating or sleeping, hopelessness, fear, loneliness, or questioning your faith or beliefs."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."

"Life! It's perplexing and mysterious. Challenging and full of unexpected turns. Our fast-paced world presents us with demands that stress our coping abilities and make even the simplest of things seem overwhelming. But life can also be full of contentment and connection. When we acknowledge and explore what is upsetting, we have the potential to expand self-awareness and create a circle of compassion for ourselves and others. This leads to discovering our innate strength and resilience so that we are able to move forward, navigating choices that support the life we want to live."

"Grief is messy. One minute you feel numb; the next minute you are sobbing. Or maybe you feel relieved and then feel guilty for feeling relieved. You expect yourself to be sad but surprise yourself by feeling angry and then scared. It’s a wild ride. It’s unpredictable and unwieldy. It’s as unique as the relationship (or situation) that launched it. Most of us don’t “get over” our losses, but we can integrate them into our lives in a meaningful way that allows us to move forward with a sense of peace."
