I specialize in managing stress, anxiety, and grief, here to provide the support you need.
You are juggling numerous responsibilities at a rapid-fire pace, doing so with fewer resources than you feel you need. Before long, you've stopped connecting with others in positive ways, leisure activities become after-thoughts, and you can't recall when you last had a “good day.” This is not the life you envisioned, and perhaps you're wondering, "how did I get here?" Your inner critic has a lofty list of your failures and reasons why you can't live your best life. But did you know? Failure is just data. Life can be both manageable and enjoyable.

I believe the bravest thing we can do is embrace our true authentic self. Unfortunately, most of us have difficulty pushing through the negative messages that scream "YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN YOUR WORST CHOICE." We get stuck in our current experience as we wrestle with our fears, difficulty in our relationships and facing the grief of loss, convincing ourselves we do not deserve anything better than we can see right in front of us. I have a passion to help others find their authentic self and explore the barriers that may hinder them from expressing the powerful version of themselves that they long to embrace.

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.
