Grief, Bereavement, and Anxiety Counseling in Orange County.

Grief, stress, and anxiety in life can be completely devastating and life-changing depending on the circumstances. There are things that happen to you like the death of a loved one, miscarriage, divorce, lost job, new baby, physical illness or new medical issue, life transition that make it so hard to think, remember, make decisions, sleep, eat, do everyday tasks. You feel like you are on a roller coaster with your emotions- irritable, sad, scared, mad, stuck, frustrated, lonely, hopeless, guilty. Or maybe you have extreme or quick changes in your feelings- happy one minute and very sad or angry the next.

You avoid and forget things, people. Relationships are tense, troubled, or broken. You don’t have the energy to do things or go places.

You can’t remember what it was like to feel joy or peace. Or if you will ever be able to feel those again. Relentless, invasive thoughts and feelings bludgeon you continually. You get confused, walk around in a daze; everything is a blur. You are in real physical pain- your heart actually aches, your muscles are sore, you are exhausted. Sometimes you think you may be “losing it.”

It’s a hard way to live. You wonder how long this will go on. Will it get better? Or worse? Is this normal? Will I ever be myself again?

I get it.

And I can help. As grief and bereavement counselor, I gently help you deal with the pain, and create a safe space to feel the feelings, mourn the loss, create new norms for daily life, and honor the love experienced. Together we begin to focus on the joy of a new version of life very much worth living.

As a stress and anxiety therapist, I work with you to find ways to calm the storm and soothe a stressed and overtaxed mind and body. Together we can create new coping skills that you can begin to implement immediately to create greater peace day to day.

If you are open to Dance/Movement Therapy, you may use this powerful medium to access those thoughts and feelings that words cannot describe, and through movement can transform and heal those wounded places. You are also welcome do talk therapy.
