Loss can encompass many different experiences when it comes to pregnancy, fertility, adoption, being the partner of an expecting person, etc. These are complex experiences and I pride myself on working with clients around processing their individual stories; no one's grief or feelings can be duplicated.

I am a Level 1 Gottman Method clinician, and I love this technique because it is rooted in such real life behavior. I find it easy for couples to take the Gottman methodology and apply it to their own lives.
Narrative Therapy is a wonderful way to "rewrite history"; it allows us to create the story of your life in a way that feels more empowering, restorative, and healing.
