After the loss of my first child I completely thought my life was over. After months of not getting out of bed and practically sleeping all day long my mom found Kathy. She literally saved my life when I believed there was no hope. She guided me through all stages of grief and showed me it was okay to have those feelings. I wouldn’t trade my time with her for anything else. Kathy goes above and beyond for her clients and she is truly an amazing person!

I have known Kathy Cherven for a number of years. As an intern, she took me under her wing and taught me about being a therapist. As a colleague, we collaborated and I continued to grow through my experiences with her. She is an amazing clinician and I enjoy her point of view.

Some grieve through “doing” . This can be through making a garden, building something in memory of a loved one, starting a foundation, creating a ritual, just to name a few. Others are able to express their loss through emotions and gain insight into their grief experience by journaling, drawing, or through the expressive arts. Most have a combination of the two.
