  • Grief Therapy

    Our society not only fails to provide appropriate space for expression of grief, it also fails to teach us the many types of grief. It’s not just the loss of a loved one—it could be a dementia diagnosis that makes those closest to you feel like strangers; the end of a major personal project or life goal; a breakup with a romantic partner or friend, or the anticipatory grief that comes with a terminal diagnosis. I worked for two years as a grief counselor at a hospice and have specialized knowledge in helping people face and express grief in its many forms.
