“Is your heart broken? Have you experienced a significant loss of any kind? Do you feel stuck in your grief, struggling to cope with change or confusing intense emotions? I can help you feel better. Grief is a natural and normal reaction to loss but few of us have been taught how to handle it. The emotions accompanying grief can be so scary and overwhelming. The good news is that you can heal and learn positive actions you can take to recover. I want to come along side of you and guide you through the process. I have successfully helped many others and I want to help you too.”

Treatments

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that uses mindfulness and behavioral activation to help people learn strategies to live life more in the present, more focused on important values and goals, and less focused on painful thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

In cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a therapist in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

Supportive Therapy

Supportive psychotherapy is used primarily to reinforce a patient’s ability to cope with stressors by giving clients the opportunity to express their feelings and thoughts about the issues. Clinicians help patients learn how to move forward and make decisions or changes that may be necessary to adapt, either to an acute change, such as the loss of a loved one or severe disappointment, or to a chronic situation, such as an ongoing illness.

Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness practices include but are not limited to developing awareness, attention, and remembering. In mindfulness-informed therapy, clients develop tools to become aware of what is occurring within and around them, so they can begin to untangle from mental preoccupations and difficult emotions. Self-acceptance and compassion are also core elements of mindfulness-informed therapy.
