Grief is a unique yet universal experience. How it visits each of us is different, but the things we feel are quite similar. Sometimes just knowing what to expect is a huge benefit after you have just lost a loved one!
Grief feels overwhelming, but rest assured that as a healing process, it has its own intelligence, pace and rhythms, and you can learn to ride the waves of these. This is where grief coaching/counseling comes in—to help you with the support, strength, & perspective to move through this often overwhelming experience and connect with joy and love once again.
Private sessions are a kind of life coaching through the personal transformation that comes with grief, helping you to find the beauty that still remains to you in this life. They include compassionate support; addressing various physical & emotional symptoms of grief; psychoeducation; and a toolkit of strategies to help you find equilibrium during the storm of grief, stay connected to lost loved ones, and explore the existential identity crisis inherent grief, with the ultimate goal of restoration and expansion.
