The strength of the counselor-client relationship is one of the most effective tools in individual counseling. As a counselor, I offer encouragement, comfort, challenge, and insight in identifying blind spots. We can draw from many counseling techniques and therapeutic interventions, yet how comfortable you are with your counselor is a key to a positive and productive experience. If you are interested in finding out more, please call or email me. We can discuss whether I am a good fit for your needs. If not, I am pleased to assist you in finding a counselor who can help.

Experiencing losses is inevitable. It usually begins at birth when we leave the comfort of our mother's womb. Throughout life's journey, we may experience up to 43 types of losses. Each loss causes a wide range of feelings called grief.

Grief is the natural response to significant loss of any kind. The range of emotions accompanying grief are unique to each person. Grief is individual and unique.

The problem in grieving is that information is passed onto us about the loss. This information is not helpful. Grief is an emotional response to loss but the information is intellectual. Receiving only intellectual information is receiving ineffective coping skills. It is like trying to paint a room with a hammer--it just does not work and it is frustrating and messy.

In grief-recovery counseling, I assist you in several effective ways. I help you discover 6 myths or incorrect ideas about coping with loss. I assist you in completing the pain caused by the accumulation of loses in your life, so you can be in a position to move on. It is imperative that I help you take a series of of actions before you move on.

If you are struggling with getting past the loss of a relationship altered by death, divorce, separation, rejection, abandonment, or for other reasons, call me and I will assist you in taking steps to help you learn how to move beyond grief to a more peaceful quality of life.
