I’m committed to providing exceptional, individualized education, support and encouragement.

Managing Grief and Loss

  • Loss is one of the most universal and disruptive experiences. Grief is one of the most challenging human emotional experiences. Despite how common grief is, our understanding of it remains limited, yet we know without any uncertainty, our sense of normalcy is lost. Loss is one of our human experiences that shares a lot of space with grief.  

  • Grief is a very normal response to loss of life, loss of opportunity, loss of a relationship, loss of pregnancy, and is usually felt during or after any traumatic event. It is also well known that grief can be experienced when drastic changes to daily routines that usually bring us comfort and a feeling of stability are altered or lost.

  • The good news is, you do not need to handle this alone. Entering a therapeutic relationship with a mental health professional is a sensible and productive way to find support and healing.
