Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy but it doesn't have to devastate you either. My therapy approach is well suited to minimizing the negative effects of grief and loss while honoring the natural progression of emotions while adjusting to life without this person or this human function. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.

No one likes to lose, especially when it means losing someone they care so much about. A person who comes for grief and loss counseling will begin to make sense out of loss and realize that they can continue on with the loving memory of their lost one. They will be assisted through the grief stages in order to bring acceptance and peace to themselves.

As a psychologist, I can give people the tools to deal with grief and loss, as well as to discuss the topic in ways geared toward working through the loss. Grief and loss are both issues that present themselves during the time of loss, but sometimes unresolved grief leads to changes in a person's life years or even decades later. I especially encourage people dealing with the latter to call me. Working through a distant loss can be extremely powerful. And understanding how it still affects you can feel good, as well as to open doors that were previously closed in life.

I remember many years ago learning in graduate school about a technique for rapidly helping people to deal with the pain of loss while retaining the memory of their loved one. To this day I remember the specifics of how to help people w/this therapeutic approach. I also utilize individual and family therapy models to help grieving people. Please do not hesitate to contact me for therapy or a referral.

I process with the client verbally the loss in regards to family of origin whether it be relatives, close friends, or work relationships. Over a period of sessions, the grief becomes less and less, and the client is able to concentrate on moving forward and letting go, and return to an active lifestyle both emotionally and physically. I provide for a safe environment that leads to healing, support, and empathy.

Loss is a most difficult event in any person's life and it can paralyze to the point of complete isolation and inactivity. The grieving process can be a torturous one and one that robs a person of their life force. The process of grieving must be respected as a powerful one that resolves at its own pace. The therapist cannot force this process, but rather joins with the client in the journey of recovery.

People experience grief and loss from many things... the illness of a loved one, a death, the loss of one's health, wealth, or job. People move to different parts of the country and experience deep loss because of this. People often overlook chronic loss, which can be one of the worst types of loss. This is one has an ongoing experience of loss, like waiting for a loved one to die, or expecting to lose your home at any time. Talking about these feelings and coming to understand yourself int erms of the losses can make them easier to live with. In addition, by using Internal Family Systems Therapy, sometimes the intensity of the pain can be lessened, even if the loss cannot be changed.
