Does self-doubt rob you of feeling a sense of contentment and stability you desire? Do feelings of shame obstruct your ability to feel worthy of a loving relationship with yourself and others? Are self-esteem and confidence drowned out by nagging thoughts of: "I'm not good enough", "I'm a failure", "I'm not worthy of love"? Life transitions and unexpected events can resurface embedded and unresolved traumas that stick with us and impact our emotional health later in life. Consequently you may find yourself overwhelmed by feelings of stress, anxiety and disconnection, unable to find a sense of peace and balance.

I always gravitated to jobs that entailed helping people: Teacher; Red Cross; Covenant House. I had also pursued seminary studies and was briefly on track to becoming a clergyman. Entry into grad school to study Counseling seemed the next natural step in my career path. But there was a more profound reason I became a Professional Helper, and that is my own lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression.

The journey of finding a therapist can be difficult and frustrating at times. You may ask yourself, "do I really need to talk with someone?" Coming to the realization that you may need to talk to some one is challenging . Taking that first step in searching, for someone, to talk to is moving in the direction, of finding peace, hope and healing.

Important to functioning in a healthy manner as a human being is the fulfillment of the need to trust and feel safe. Many experiences in life can contribute to feelings of isolation and loneliness, mistrust of self and others, including God or a Higher Power, fear, resentment and anger, to name a few. Connection to nurturing, kind and loving relationships are important for healthy functioning. Human beings need to have a sense of belonging, feel they are important to others and are able to accept support from others. Interdependence is the goal.

If you are trying to manage intrusive worries, sadness, or grief , it's possible your body and mind may be signaling a need for greater attention and care. Often this is our soul's way of asking for a deeper connection to ourselves and others. Reaching out for support requires courage and some willingness to be vulnerable. If you are ready, we will begin by developing a secure foundation based on identifying and honoring your strengths and resilience before exploring difficult topics. We will take an approach that includes a somatic awareness which invites you to notice what's rising inside your body, not just your mind.

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.
