Given that change is a constant, each of us will experience innumerable losses over the course of life. Whether you're mourning the death of a loved one, or living with anticipatory grief, or grieving an aspect of your identity and role, such as we can when we change jobs or become an empty-nester, I am here for you.
Perhaps you're living with disenfranchised grief, the kind that isn't always adequately recognized, understood or validated by others, such as when we experience any type of pregnancy loss, or a beloved companion animal dies. These losses can be profound.
If you're grieving as a result of circumstances that make it harder to receive support in the ways you need, please know that you are not alone. I'm able to talk with you about loss as a result of suicide, accident, crime or other tragedy. I offer you safety, acceptance and compassion.
In addition to my role as a social worker, I have training as a full-spectrum birth and postpartum doula, meaning I'm knowledgable in supporting families with respect to perinatal loss. I have also served as an educator for the International End-of-Life Doula Association, providing training to both professionals and lay people so they can care well for those with a terminal illness, and their loved ones. You can read one of my contributions to this organization here: Consent Until the End
I have much lived experience with grief, some of which is chronicled in this blog post:
The Liberation of Grief and Mourning
