My work involves a deep personal commitment to growing through grief. Specifically, I've developed a short-term therapeutic intervention intended to diminish suffering by expanding stories...the ones told to us, the ones told about us and the ones we tell ourselves. This work can be done independent of, or in coordination with, other forms of psychotherapy. Through a brief collaborative process (6-12 sessions // 1-2 hrs per session), we will engage in a private, thoughtful and creatively reflective process. This process involves exploring new ways of expanding your story by discovering the stories your loss has yet to reveal. Whatever your losses, sustained or on the horizon, the meaning you make of them requires a capacity to inhabit that, often elusive, 'new normal'. The aim of this project is to give a voice to unspoken things that hold us back so that we might move forward. Our collaboration will result in a concrete project that memorializes your loss in ways that appreciate both the freedom to remember and the need to forget. I believe that it is not suffering, but meaningless suffering, that defeats us. Let's use your suffering to move into a deeper and fuller life.
