Grief Counseling

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

No two people grieve in the same way.  Each person copes with loss differently and that’s exactly as it should be. But because of the very personal and individual nature of grieving, the process itself can be isolating and for some, even a little frightening. You do not have to grieve alone.

Grief Counseling can provide the support you need going through that process.  My role as a therapist is to be with you as you grieve.  To me, it’s about letting you go through your process and giving you the support you need while you’re there.

And when you are ready, together we will discover what it means for you to function again – to be stronger in the broken places – and begin the work of rebuilding your life.

Training

I am a Level 2 Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) therapist. AEDP by focusing on processing difficult emotional and relational experiences helps clients undo the feeling of aloneness that are often caused by grief and trauma. Diana Fosha the developer of AEDP says of this process: “Nothing that feels bad is ever the last step.”
