Canopy Counseling understands that grief and trauma are personal experiences, and healing is not linear, nor does it follow predictable stages. It is an internal experience of deep sorrow which affects emotions, behavior, relationships, wellbeing, and connectedness. Grief and trauma come in waves, sometimes leaving you exhausted, isolated, disconnected, and unstable. So many factors shape your healing. I am committed to walking beside you as you process your experiences and learn to reconnect with life in a meaningful way.

Grief is a natural response to loss (often the death of a loved one). It is an internal experience of deep sorrow which affects emotions, behavior, relationships, wellbeing, and connectedness. Significant loss brings intense grief.
My promise is to be present and walk with you as you grow with your struggles, change your relationship with the pain, and live forward in the way that works for you.
Active, artistic self-expression engages the mind, body and spirit. Art modalities provide children and adults a way to express the myriad of emotions that accompanies grief and loss. Creative outlets also empower and give individuals a sense of control as they tell their story.
Play is primarily how children communicate. Play is also how children begin to understand concepts of loss, including death, separation and control. Play also helps children share their stories.
Play includes, physical, sensory, art, dress-up, etc.
