Grief, Loss, and Terminal Illness
Grief is often associated with death, but we experience similar feelings when we lose anything close to us. It is important to allow ourselves a moment of vulnerability to help build us back up again. Not grieving only ensures that the pain we carry will be stored away only to manifest in some harmful way that affects our self and our relationship to the world and others. The pain we carry does not have to impact or even dictate our lives. Therapy can help us learn how to grieve our losses with greater comfort and help restore a balance in us.
Addiction & Substance Abuse Issues
Whether it began when you were younger or started as a distraction from other things, addiction & substance abuse and dependence has impacted your functioning and has affected your relationships. I work with people to helping them gain a better understanding of how addiction impacts their lives and provide treatment options to best suit each individual.
