Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Grief and bereavement are not light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions from fear to anger to deep sadness.

The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, temperament/personality, and relationship to the person who has passed.

Symptoms of grief affect every part of the person - cognitively, physically, emotionally, behaviorally, and spiritually. 

Possible symptoms include:


  • Crying
  • Headaches
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue


  • Feelings of sadness and yearning
  • Feelings of worry or anger
  • Feelings of frustration or guilt


  • Sense of detachment from others
  • Self-isolation from social contact
  • Behaving in ways that are not normal for you

My work with David Kessler ( as a Certified Grief Educator, as well as, my work as a leader with the international GriefShare program, has provided me with extensive training in helping individuals move to a place of healing after experiencing the pain of loss.
