Grief and Loss, Women’s Empowerment & Life Transitions Counseling and Therapy in Colorado & Florida
Has your priority been on taking care of others? Are you thinking that the time has come to shine the light on yourself, and focus on YOUR wants and needs?
Perhaps, you have experienced a big change in your life (a death, loss or other huge life event) which is bringing about a re-evaluation of your priorities, and a desire for more joy and meaning in your life.
On the other hand, you may feel that joy and meaning is elusive at this time, and you are feeling lost and confused.
You might not know where to turn or what to do to make things better for yourself. If you need some support, I’d like to help.
These are the areas in which I can help and support you:
Have you lost sight of who you are, what you want and what’s important to you? Women are rewarded by society and their upbringing for caretaking others.
Do you feel like…
- You have lost your voice?
- You have lost sight of who you are?
- You have lost sight of what’s important to you?
- You have lost sight of what you want?
Counseling can help you feel empowered and find your voice!
Some examples of finding your voice can include:
- Setting Boundaries
- Creating More Self-Acceptance and Self-Compassion
- Paying Attention to Your Thoughts and Feelings
- Befriending Your Inner Critic
- Increasing Self-Care
- Reducing Stress
- Connecting Back to Your Wants and Needs (Your Authentic Self)

You can’t go back to what was, and you don’t know what’s coming next. This period of time has been described as a liminal time. This in between time is when transformation can take place. It offers you a chance to re-evaluate your priorities.
Your priorities can include your…
- Family, Friend and Work Relationships
- Happiness and Peace
This re-evaluation of your priorities can lead to some of our important work in therapy.
Re-evaluating your priorities helps you:
- Find More Meaning
- Look At Your Identity and Relationships
- Create Enhanced Self-Care
Therapy offers you a place and time to slow down, so that you can figure out…
- What is needed
- What really matters
- What is next for you in your life
Some examples of life transitions include:
- Empty Nest
- Job Changes
- Age Milestones
- Dealing with an Illness
- Graduating College
- Marriage or New Relationship
- Birth of a Child
- Aging Parents

Have the ways people responded to your grief caused you to shut down and not share your feelings? You may feel that you have not received the support you need and deserve from others. Many people are uncomfortable around the subject of grief even when they care about you. It’s really important that grief is witnessed by another! We are not meant to grieve alone.
Therapy offers you a safe and validating space where you can share what this loss means to you, or discover what it means to you.
Your grief and loss may include:
- The Death of Someone in Your Life
- A Long-Ago Loss
- Your Illness or The Illness of a Loved One
- Pandemic Related Grief
- Loss of a Soul Pet
