I have extensive experience working with grief .
The gift of deeper personal insight can bring peace and joy. When we explore what is getting in the way of our own peace and happiness, we begin to change. Change can be scary; it may feel like opening a door to a room we have never entered. That is why my practice is client focused and collaborative. The client decides what issues they want to work on and when. Change takes place at the pace the client feels most comfortable with. I will bring insight and questions but the client is in charge of what they need. I really seek client feed back on how the work is going; is what they expected and need?

Many people jump back into life after a loss , but if we don't allow ourselves to feel our grief or other difficult emotions, it may prevent us from moving forward.
Life transitions such as a job loss , illness, death of a person or pet, a breakup, estrangement, accident, illness, move, accident, aging or burnout can leave you grieving not only what happened, but also your life before the loss and expectations of where it was going. Well intentioned comments that don't meet you where you are can leave you feeling more alone. It may feel like one step forward, two steps back, but it’s the movement that's important, not the pace. Acknowledging and grieving life's many transitions is necessary, not to forget the loss , but to remember with more ease.

Life inevitably involves struggle. The goal of therapy is to understand the source of your current struggles in order to live more fully and effectively. In my experience, life difficulties are either long standing or acute. The enduring difficulties are often the result of underlying patterns that result in feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. These patterns may manifest in relationship problems, parenting difficulties or low self esteem. Acute situations, such as death or divorce, take time to process and can trigger earlier losses. In either situation, the wish to function and feel better is what motivates us to seek therapy.

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.
