I have post-graduate training in grief/bereavement and working with survivors of childhood abuse and neglect, and facilitate support groups for Buddy's Place, a family-based bereavement program.
**Temporarily unable to accept new clients as my practice is full right now.** I offer caring, insightful, professional help in navigating through experiences of grief, loss & life transitions. Whether you are facing acute grief brought on by a recent loss or suffering the cumulative effects of losses long past yet still painfully present, these experiences can be catalysts for profound growth. It would be my privilege to assist you in identifying and gently letting go of your obstacles to more authentic, centered, full and satisfying living.

Loss can take many forms such as illness, divorce,or injury. Join me in a recovery and discovery process that will help you look at life in a manner that heals the hurts and opens new possibilities. Children and loss are particularly difficult as children grieve differently from adults. My experience with children and adolescents tells me that they have more to say than one can imagine.

Within a trusting relationship, using proven techniques, together we can sort through distressing thoughts and emotions (fears, feelings of loss, health/ life worries) and work towards positive goals including healthy behavior change and greater quality of life.
I specialize in helping individuals cope with the difficult emotions and lifestyle changes that often go along with coping with health problems, chronic illnesses and in particular, heart disease. When facing a new diagnosis, a negative health event (such as stroke or heart attack) or adjusting to a major surgery, it is common for people to experience emotional distress and disruptions to their sleep, appetite and quality of life. Often these are normal reactions that get better after a short while, but at times these stresses can persist and make recovery and health management more difficult than need be.

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 an Oak Brook grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Oak Brook.
