Grief and Loss

I am a certified Grief Recovery Specialist®.  I offer adult grief counseling in a group setting or one-on-one.  I also provide grief counseling to children, young adults, couples and families.

There are over 40 losses which can produce the range of emotions that we call grief.  Grief is a normal and natural reaction to loss. We grieve after death, divorce or end of a relationship, loss of health, major financial changes, moving, and many others.

The Grief Recovery Method® is an action program for moving beyond loss. It is a program which creates a safe environment in which to look at old beliefs about dealing with loss; to look at what losses have affected your life; and to take new steps which lead to completion of the pain attached to one of those losses.

Recovery from a significant loss is accomplished by discovering and completing all of the undelivered communications that builds up in relationships. We are taught coping skillls that often do not work.  For example, "be strong" and "keep busy" are examples of misinformation that do not help us feel better.  As a member of Grief Recovery, you will make small, action steps that will truly help you strive and thrive in the face of a painful loss.
