“Your grief for what you’ve lost lifts a mirror up to where you’re bravely working.”

HEALING RELATIONSHIP & REPRODUCTIVE LOSS

Those who experience relationship or reproductive losses often experience profound grief and extraordinary emotional crisis. It takes great courage to endure the painful realities you face.

Relationship losses and separations occur through death, through divorce, through adoption and foster care. They also occur through abuse, neglect and abandonment. They happen when someone we care about is terminally ill and gradually ceases to connect with us in the ways they used to. They happen when someone is incarcerated, when an affair ends, when a job ends, and with so many other life altering situations.

Reproductive losses include the heartbreaking journey of infertility as well as deaths that occur through miscarriage, stillbirth, and pregnancy termination – bringing with them the loss of a future life with your child and, so often, the loss of many hopes and dreams.

Feelings of guilt, anger, rejection, shame, fear and sadness can flow through you like tidal waves and you may feel like you are “going crazy”. A sense of helplessness and hopelessness can permeate your existence and can keep you from moving forward. And, sometimes, it can seem like no one wants to listen anymore – or even understands what you are going through - leaving you feeling very alone.

I can help you find the strength to cope, sustain you through crisis, and provide a safe, compassionate, non-judgmental place for understanding and healing. I can help you explore and express your thoughts and feelings; grieve your losses; discover your unique inner resources; and restore your sense of emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.
