My Approach to Helping
Are you grieving a loss? Are you struggling to imagine your life after loss? Grief breaks all the rules. It’s uncharted territory. A common question in grief therapy is, "What do I need to do? Can you tell me exactly how to get through this?” The hard, unfair answer is that there is no “exact” answer, manual, or guide. Each person’s grief and inherent capacity for healing will teach them what to do.
Grief also unearths everything you've never dealt with and things you don't want to face. My work as a therapist and group facilitator at a suicide hotline, community agency, and grief center fully prepares me to support you with co-occurring issues in grief including depression, anxiety, substance use, and rebuilding your identity and relationships.
It can, and does get better. I've supported and witnessed many clients move through and out of the depths of immeasurable pain to healing. Their paths vary in intensity and length of time, but they walk it. My calling is to help you as you do this and find your way back to the business of living.
