People’s Responses to Grief Will Vary Depending upon the Circumstances of the Death, but Grief Is a Normal, Healthy Response to Loss.
Experiencing excessive guilt about something left unsaid or undone?
Maybe you’re gripped with fear? Caught in a cycle of anxiety, helplessness, or panic?
Or having trouble resuming a normal life with grief and pain as your constant companions?
Maybe you’d like professional support through a period of mourning?
Grief is a natural human response to loss, but that doesn’t mean bereavement of a loved one isn’t an intense and at times desolate experience. While painful experiences are normal during this time, your emotions may feel trapped on a non-stop rollercoaster, with downs and deeper downs interspersed with periods of brief respite.
Loss is a very personal journey, with some finding it more difficult than others. While grieving for the same person can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it’s also common for the grieving to struggle with anger, conflict, a lack of understanding, or an inability to fully share your feelings with others. Grief and bereavement counseling offers a non judgmental, safe space for you to work through any issues you are unable to with others. Grief and bereavement counseling can provide you a much-needed safe space to work through your struggles with a caring, nonjudgmental professional.
We focus on helping people feel better and learn to cope with their grieving experience. We can help you learn to express and come to terms with the broad range of emotions involved in the grieving process, from those that you may expect — sadness, loneliness, exhaustion – to those that come as a surprise, such as relief, anger, and a sense of confusion. We offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to best support you and work with you as an equal collaborator to empower and engage your healing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of therapy do you do?
CBT Therapy which means that the work I do strives to help you know yourself deeply so as to give you the opportunity to have real agency in creating the life you want to live. My goal's to help you to develop a way of thinking in the world that really takes into consideration all parts of you and to teach you how to make the changes necessary to live a conscious, engaged, fulfilled life.
How often will we meet?
I will talk about what frequency works best for your specific circumstances, however it is important to understand that meeting weekly, at minimum, is a vital part of successful treatment. The consistency of a weekly session contributes to the development of a therapeutic relationship that fosters the feeling of safety and trust.
Where are you located?
My offices are located in Newport Beach & Corona in California where I offer in-person therapy sessions. For online tele-health services, I serve California, New Jersey & internationally. Whether you are stuck at work for a crucial deadline or juggling a million doctor’s appointments all that is required to get to my office is a reliable internet connection.
Virtual therapy can be a phenomenal way to make time and space for support, self-exploration, understanding, and growth. It has been shown to have similar outcomes, in terms of patient satisfaction and self-reported growth, as in-person treatment. With that being said, online therapy is not for everyone. Please consult first to decide.
