Compassionate grief counseling to help you find your way through the pain


What People Say

*clients' names withheld to protect privacy

Grief is so hard, but you have given us some real skills that we can use going forward for the “waves” to come.

"I am sure you will continue to be a strong and caring shoulder to lean on for many needy souls. You seem to be a natural at it, as well as so aptly educated, and I thank you for all you did to assist and comfort me. I would recommend you to everyone in need of that shoulder of yours! If we all had your strength of compassion, what a better world it would be."

"Your light shines bright for all to see! Your kind heart and gentle nature will never be forgotten.

Thank you so much for being you."

Time does NOT

heal all wounds.

Grief can feel so overwhelming. Your whole life has changed and the pain is intense. Your thoughts are racing and you feel anxious and distracted. You might feel bitter, angry, or even guilty. I can help you.

​After losing the one you love,

life will never be the same...

I can help you move forward

without losing your past.

Grief is a PROCESS,
so is healing.
There is no "magic cure" for grieving, but grief therapy provides expert support and research-based techniques to bring you relief.
Grief is:
  • Feeling like you’ve been tossed in the air and you can’t find your footing.
  • You can’t stop thinking about the events of your loved one’s death.
  • Feeling lost, alone, and broken-hearted.
  • Your thoughts are scattered and you can’t concentrate for more than a few minutes at a time.
  • You have been crying every day, but hiding it from your family so they don’t worry about you.
  • Your close friends are telling you that you need to move on, but you don’t know how.
  • You just want to get some sleep and start feeling normal again.
Grief Counseling will help you
  • Come to terms with what happened in the past: so you can release painful memories, while continuing the important connections.
  • Adjust to new, healthier routines for daily living: so you can feel stronger, more centered, and in control.
  • Move forward with hope for yourself and your family: so you can plan for a positive and fulfilling future together.
