 Grief yields to gratitude, for these experiences, all of them."

We can experience grief in many ways, including from the death of loved ones, difficult relationships. traumatic events, chronic illness, inherited trauma, or in response to the suffering we see in the world. Grief can bring feelings of shock, despair, anxiety, guilt, fear, numbness, or depression, and can arise from past pain of the past, a present crisis, or the anticipation of loss in the future.


An essential aspect of working through any kind of grief is to have our pain recognized, validated, and held with care. Yet with Western culture being largely death-phobic and grief-illiterate, it can be hard to find the support we really need to navigate this difficult terrain. I offer a space of compassion, care, and respect for your unique process.  stay open to life, make sense of what is happening for you, and learn how to grow around your grief in new ways. 

Sessions are typically 60-90 minutes long and may take place virtually or in-person. I operate a sliding scale for low incomes and provide pro bono sessions at times to those with severely limited resources. I offer an initial 20 minute consultation to talk through any questions you may have, and see if we are a good fit. Just let me know if you'd like to connect, and we can set something up.
