Grief

In grief counseling, it is important to me to provide compassionate care and a safe, supportive environment for clients who are experiencing the pain of loss. This means an environment free of judgment or pressure to “move on” from grief. It is my hope that in our work together, clients feel supported and accompanied on their unique journey of grief and healing.

As a certified Compassionate Bereavement Care provider through the MISS Foundation, I have received specialized training to support individuals and families experiencing traumatic bereavement, such as the death of a child or the violent or sudden death of a loved one.
