Trauma and Grief
The experience of trauma can range from a family environment where your needs were not met adequately to unresolved experiences of abuse: physical, emotional, mental, sexual or spiritual from your childhood up to the present day. Trauma can cause us to keep repeating ineffective behaviors and not obtain what we believe matters most to us.
Grief, the experience of loss, is inevitable, but the process of healing is not. I work with people dealing with all kinds of losses, from the death of a loved one (including a pet), the end of a marriage, or the loss of a job, to subtler forms of loss that often arise from events such as infertility, midlife, "empty-nest syndrome", or retirement.
