Grief Therapists

That enables you to talk about and attempt to understand what you are experiencing in the safety and privacy of a protected professional relationship. You will quickly know — after two or three visits — if your therapist is accustomed to and comfortable with working with survivors. If not, go elsewhere.

You may also wish to consider joining a survivor’s support group in your community. It is unbelievably comforting to talk with people who have also lost a loved one to suicide. Look under the Resources tab for additional resources and support groups.

I have been a Marriage and Family Therapist in California and now in New Mexico for thirty years. In that capacity, I have worked with the survivors of alcoholism, illness, and suicide. It has been my mission to assist family members, loved ones and friends to discover their resilience, pick up the pieces, and reorganize their lives. The tragedy and trauma is incorporated into their history and future. My goal has been to help individuals and families develop in the healthiest way possible.
