Grief and loss are a natural - though painful - part of life. It's normal to be sad and to grieve. Unfortunately, our fast paced society often wants us to medicate and move on more quickly than might really be healthy or good for us. I encourage people to have patience with themselves and the process of grief, and to allow themselves to fully feel their feelings so that they can truly heal. Paradoxically, allowing full expression of the sadness, anger, and other emotions often does allow a person to move forward more quickly. I also always assess carefully to make sure that "normal" sadness has not spiraled into a true clinical depression, and I encourage prompt treatment if it does.

There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

Grief is an appropriate response to loss. While grief is often connected with death, grief can also be felt during periods of change. While counseling can't change what you're going through, talking with a therapist can. I listen and provide a space for you to grieve and explore the meaning of loss. In therapy, I respect your experience and honor your feelings.

Grieving and loss is part of life. While we all share aspects of this life event, it is an individual experience and needs to be addressed with care and respect. It is an opportunity for individual growth and it can have an impact on our relationships to others including siblings and spouses as well as many aspects of our life including the spiritual dimension of our being and our questioning of the meaning of life. Sometimes it is useful to work with narrative, memories and dreams. There is not one way to feel, to act or to be as one grieves. It just is.

Managing grief and loss is an immensely personal experience. First and foremost, I create a safe, warm and nurturing environment where a deep exploration of how loss has impacted your life can be safely discussed. After you feel comfortable, we will talk about how to rebuild your life after experiencing a significant change. While grief and loss is often associated with death; major life changes such as divorce, miscarriage, job loss or diagnosis of an illness can certainly result in similar feelings of overwhelm, sadness or difficult with daily living.

Each person grieves differently and it is my job to help you discover what will work best for you. A nonjudgmental, empathic approach is crucial during grief and loss counseling. Finding ways to cope and heal can be difficult to do alone and I am willing to help you feel more at ease and comforted during this time of pain. Through talk therapy, relaxation and breathing practices and reflecting exercises, this experience can become more manageable and healing can begin.

Grief and loss is a normal part of human experience. We can too often rush to pathologize and/or attempt to get rid of the feelings of loss and grief, something to stay away from. However, letting our grief be, or letting ourselves simply experience grief, making it a normal experience can help us not only heal from loss but move forward and grow from our painful experiences.

The benefit of my approach for someone who is grieving and who has suffered a great loss is that I actively teach you how to accept things that cannot be changed. Only by achieving real acceptance can the individual carry on in life despite the loss. Acceptance in REBT does not mean liking or even denying the loss. Acceptance in REBT means to acknowledge that a great loss has occurred and to feel healthy negative feelings of sadness, even great sadness. The benefit that results is that one can still have some degree of enjoyment in life. One can function without guilt and do well in life despite having suffered a great loss. This is leverage over the loss, the thing that cannot be changed.
