Grief and Traumatic Loss Counseling

 PERMISSION TO GRIEVE IN YOUR OWN TIME AND IN YOUR OWN WAY


Guilt? Regret? Anger? Overwhelming sorrow?  


These are all normal parts of grief, but leaning into them and allowing yourself to feel the emotions without being crushed under their weight may require someone to walk along side you.  


You to set your own goals and timetable and method to determine the pace of your own grief journey.  Together we design your own Individualized Bereavement Plan, setting the goals you have for yourself and finding your best tools to accomplish it. 


You are given permission to do grief in your own time, in your own way.


I knows first hand the value of leaning into your pain and finding the tools to to help deal with grief because I, myself am a bereaved parent.  


I am currently a registered psychological assistant in Sacramento, CA. I am in a psychology doctoral program and working on a dissertation about traumatic loss, personality, coping skills and post-traumatic growth. I also am a credentialed teacher with a Master's degree in Professional Development incorporating adult learning theory.
