Grief is not an illness but a natural process unique to each person’s needs and circumstances. Losses can have an impact on all levels: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. Whether we are suffering the loss of a loved one, diminished physical ability or relinquishing a cherished role, we usually experience the impact on multiple levels at the same time.

  • Addressing key questions: Will I survive this? Am I stuck? Is my reaction normal? Is there something wrong with me?
  • The body has its own ways of grieving. We can assess and monitor a range of common physical reactions and the best way to overcome the limitations we experience due to them.
  • Naming what has been lost, what is left and what is possible.

I welcome any questions you may have and offer a free phone consultation. If I can help you or someone you know please contact me at or (518) 862-1974, Ext. 5.
