There is no wrong way to grieve.

Caring for you, just as you are. 

Sorrow, guilt, emptiness, rage; any and all of it are welcome here. You might get messages in your relationships  that cause you to feel more alone in your experience. As unreal as it seems, you need a place to process this, extend yourself kindness, and begin to reorient from what was to what is.

Helping Women and Nonbinary Adults experiencing grief through reflection, values, and integrity 

Do any of the following resonate with you?

  • You want to be able to talk about the your experience with your person, but feel others have moved on.

  • You know people mean well, but feel isolated by how they seem to want you to be.

  • Words intended to comfort feel hurtful and completely out of touch.

  • You sometimes feel guilt and shame about how you're doing. 

  • While you know it's not reality, a time-machine would be everything

If these sound true for you, I want you to know that even if you are really struggling, nothing is wrong with you. You might also find that you're not really feeling much of anything and struggle with the idea that you should. What you are experiencing is normal and its okay to ask for help. Even if you have a hard time prioritizing yourself, support through this is important. Give yourself permission to care for you.

Some things can not be fixed.
They can only be carried.

you're feeling

How Grief Counseling Works

Through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), I support clients in creating space for their experience, putting together what's most important, and making space for growth and grief. It can be hard to consider growth following a loss and that's okay. Much of our work together is focused on building self-compassion. Therapy moves at your own pace. Grief Counseling consists of 50 or 75-minute, one-on-one sessions that help you work through your concerns. I am with you the entire way. In addition to listening, I will help you make connections and play an active role. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

Loss is irreversible and transforms us. That is certain and here, though kindness is important, we don't sugarcoat reality. Research shows that Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can alleviate your struggle with thinking, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. ACT gives you new tools in your rucksack as you travel through and with your grief.
