People may experience many common symptoms related to grief and loss after losing a loved-one. Patients may also pass through stages of denial, anger and depression. Therapy can help an individual process these feelings and navigate these stages. A main goal when working with grief and loss may be to reach the period of acceptance (the time of closure). Talk therapy with a professional can be a very healthy approach to dealing with loss.

All too often, grief is rushed away. Certainly, as we try to resume our lives after a loss, grief can catch us in its grip, limiting our ability to focus, function, and feel joy. Grief work in treatment is beneficial because it offers the opportunity to express and explore your feelings about the person lost, including some of the more complicated feelings that may be difficult to recognize. This helps promote healing and a sense of resolution and can be instrumental in regaining your balance after a loss.

People experiencing grief and loss are often invaded by mixed emotions and thoughts, including sadness, guilt, anger, feeling frozen or ambivalent, to mention some. Difficult but essential, is to make sense of the situation and find hope. I help clients understand that what has happened might not be altered, but that they can use their own powers and that of their support systems to master the present moment.

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

Different people respond to grief and loss in many different ways. There is no right or wrong way to deal with loss. It is important to address the feelings that come up during the grieving process, whether they be painful memories or joyous ones. People often find that they work through unresolved issues from previous losses during this process. This helps people learn how to cope with death in a way that helps them move forward while being able to think about the person they've lost in a way that does not impact them like it did before.

When you suffer a significant loss it can be one of the most devastating experiences of your life. My approach to grief counseling begins with providing sensitive and supportive therapy to enable you to mourn your loss and slowly being the transition to moving forward without your loved one. If your pain is so overwhelming that you find it difficult to successfully function after you have had a period of time to recover, we will explore the obstacles that interfere with you moving ahead and implement practical strategies to assist you with improving your quality of life.

Grief and loss inevitably leads to anger & sadness. Not surprisingly, it also can lead to depression and feelings of guilt. The latter is called irrational guilt, as most of us lack magical powers to cure dying people. Even if they mean the world to us. I would encourage my clients to express feeling of guilt and anger often unconscious related to the loss. The anger is often at the person who died. Of course, this is irrational anger in most cases, as we all are going to die. The anger is over losing someone we love, value. I would use clinical interventions that usher in the grieving process. This fosters coming to terms with and an acceptance of the loss.

Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Grief and loss are experiences that lead us to feel sad, angry, shocked or numb. In our work together, we will process the many reactions you have in relation to your loss. You will experience unconditional support as you move through the stages of grief. We will work to identify your inner strengths and resources, and external supports, using them to guide you in your healing process.

John Kukor, Ed.D.

Psychotherapist

26 Aberdeen Road, New Hyde Park, New York 11040

A unique aspect of my psychotherapy practice is my readiness and willingness to discuss the issues of death and mortality. Life is precious and we deserve to live our lives fully, but death is an unavoidable fact of our lives. Many people can recall when they first learned about the fact of mortality in their childhood -- perhaps when a pet died, or we lost a grandparent or family member, or when some tragedy occurred. Witnessing a death or suffering the loss of a loved one can change some people's lives forever. In my practice I support my clients to come to terms with painful losses in their lives, and to regain their ability to live life fully, even in the face of their own mortality.

Grief is about loss and the threat of loss. The stronger the bond between us and the person we have lost, the more we will hurt both physically and emotionally. When we are torn from a family member or friend, a part of us dies as well. Our natural need for attachment gets severed, often bringing the return of childhood fears. The world feels like a more dangerous place. As a result, we may feel out of control. We ache to have the loved person back. We know in the rational part of our minds that the person is not coming back, but it also seems impossible to let him go. We will remain emotionally conflicted until we can release our loved ones. Because letting go is so difficult, we must do it slow....

It is very common for individuals to seek psychotherapy in times of grief. The death of a loved one is perhaps the single most intensive emotional experience an individual must face.We understand that sometimes there is little hope and trust because the road to recovery has been exhausting full of short-lived success. ART is dedicated to find an individualized treatment that closely fits the unique circumstances of each client; we do not apply "one size fits all" type of therapeutic treatment.

Grief is a reaction to loss that encompasses a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It is experienced differently by each person according to his or her culture, background, gender, beliefs, personality, and relationship to the deceased. I work with clients to express the full range of feelings that may be present including sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, anger, and a sense of meaninglessness. Clients become more comfortable with their loss over time; the amount of time varies by person.

Grief and loss can come in many forms. While most people think of death and dying, loss can be a separation or divorce, loss of a job, retirement, moving, seeing a child off to college, losing weight. There are so many more that I could list. All of these have an impact on us and how we view ourselves and our world. They shake us, they make us feel a bit less steady. It requires a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, understanding and hopeful.

Grief is a natural state after a loss. Mourning is natural and healthy. Acute grief does not need to be pathologized or treated. Those experiencing complicated grief may benefit from speaking to a warm, caring professional. In addition, a skilled therapist can listen, help you understand if therapy is appropriate or not, and explain what complicated grief is. If you are having sleep problems or symptoms of depression or PTSD related to the loss, therapy could be helpful. Our therapists are here to help and not interfere with the natural healing process. If support and guidance could be helpful to you, please call us with any questions.

Losing a loved one is a complicated experience that is not 'one size fits all'. Although there are different stages of grief, not everyone moves through the stages at the same pace, or in the same order, and having a safe and supportive place to start to process the loss is essential. My approach to working with people who have lost a loved one and are grieving focuses on understanding the uniqueness of the experience for the individual, and working together to process the variety of emotions and challenges that arise during bereavement. My approach is also person-centered and goes at the pace of the client.

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

Grief and loss are processes and like many processes, they change and transform. What feels like heartbreak to you at first, may be transformed through our work together, into a heart that has an even greater capacity for love and connection. I believe that heartbreak is necessary to break open and expand the heart's horizons. You will never forget those who you have held so dear and lost, but through our work together, you will make peace with those losses and appreciate the gifts of those relationships.

After you have lost a loved one, well-meaning people say it's time to "get over it" or "move on." Grieving doesn't work that way. To absorb the experience of loss and find a way to hold onto the relationship with your loved one is a process that unfolds. We don't proceed through a standard set of "stages of grief;" sometimes you may experience many different stages -- from sadness to anger to disbelief -- all in one day. The supportive presence of an experienced, compassionate counselor can help you cope with the feelings and questions and rediscover your strength and vitality. To ask any questions you may have about grief and loss or to make an appointment, contact Jean Fitzpatrick.

Living life challenges us in so many ways, and dealing with grief and loss is something we must all face and endure. By offering you a safe and supportive space to express your grief and working with you to take steps to heal, there is hope for relief and change. Is it a quick fix? No. But by helping you regain a mindful sense of self, comforting connection with others and realistic efforts toward feeling peace, there is hope for joy.

When a "loss" occurs in life sometimes it is difficult to know where to turn. Friends and family although they may be well meaning are often unable to say the right words or do the right thing to comfort you. Perhaps you feel you will never get over this feeling - the hole in your heart that has been created by this loss. Although you may not have thought of entering counseling for this type of reason, it is in fact one of the most common reasons people seek help. Loss is traumatic and can really derail you in achieving your goals or feeling like yourself again. Although you may not think it possible, I can help you heal and get back on track.

I am trained in short-term, evidence-based counseling approaches such as Complicated Grief Treatment and will work with you in a supportive, collaborative manner that will help foster healing and personal growth.

Sometimes events overpower our ability to cope. The loss of a loved one can throw our daily coping mechanism completely out of control. We all understand the early stages of loss but after awhile we feel that we should be coping better and just find that we can't. That is when a caring therapist can be of help. There is no time limit for the grieving process. It is a very personal experience. I always remind my patients that our job is never to forget, but rather to learn how to put those powerful memories into a safe place within our heart so that we can move forward with our lives. Only then can we begin to breathe again.

Depression and grief are often confounded. Although the etiology may be different, the shared characteristic is the overwhelming sense of sadness and loss, which can be amenable to cognitive-behavioral techniques. Understanding of the progression through the stages of grief (typically Kubler-Ross) is usually helpful. I have had particular experience with patients who are immobilized by prolongued grieving.

In a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment, Dr. Vaughan helps clients to make sense of their experiences and to find ways of coping with strong emotions.

Grief is something you will, unfortunately, have to go through. You can't go around it, skip over it to the end, or otherwise avoid it. I can help you realize when you are going through the process and when you're fleeing it in a way that will come back to bit you in the ***. On the positive side, going through grief is not as complicated as it's sometimes cracked up to be. Talking - with the right person - goes a long way to moving the process forward.

Grief is unavoidable and comes in many forms. From the loss of a loved one to the loss of a job or career, grief can be overwhelming and make accomplishing daily tasks difficult at best. Seldom do family and friends understand what you are going through. And after the crisis is over, your supportive friends and family become consumed with their lives. Therapy with me can offer you an environment to go through your grief while you continue your relationships outside of the office.

When I very young I lost my fiancée. I went about life as if nothing had happened until it caught up to me. I was trying to open a door with a key and it wouldn't work. I found myself crying and felt out of control. This happened because I didn't want to grieve. What I learned is you can't skip this process. It will catch up to you at the strangest times. I can walk you through this without bottoming out. Ignoring it and avoiding it doesn't work

Grief, when it surfaces, is one of the most confusing of human emotions. Together, we will soothingly allow the symptoms to lead us to the heart of the suffering where transformation is possible. If one allows it, there can be a sweetness and comfort in grief resolution. This is accessible as we resolve the barrier of complex feelings, and a part of you comes alive again. It makes sense that grieving enlivens. If there had been no significant bonding in these relationships to begin with, we would not be experiencing their loss as traumatic. While in the resolution process, you may experience a state of openness and vulnerability naturally opening to new learning and corrective experiences.

At times grief can be all encompassing and take away one’s sense of meaning, place in the world ,or hope in the future. I work with people to find small openings from where you can see that, although it may feel like it, grief is not a static state which will be here forever but something that can be moved through in order to create meaning in life after loss.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.

If it is a past loss we will talk about that relationship and what it meant to you, and see how that person affected you in your current life and what he/she meant to you. If it is a current or impending loss, we can focus on day-to-day issues to lessen anxiety, and process how to handle what time is left. Practical issues may be discussed. if you find yourself obsessing we will probably focus on feeling, if you find yourself lost in feeling, we may focus on verbalizing your thoughts and your feelings. If you are overwhelmed by depression and find it difficult to function, I will make recommendations for medications and/or alternative strategies.

For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

We need to grieve when we lose someone. While it can feel hard to let ourselves the whole range of emotions that arise from loss, not feeling them causes more problems in the end. People respond to loss in different ways. Some feel immediate surges of emotions, while others feel numb for a while. But everyone goes through stages of denying the loss, feeling angry and wronged, and eventually accepting the reality of the situation. The most important part of grieving is expressing everything you feel, even if what you are feeling is numb. I am trained to listen and respond to grieving in ways that will make you as comfortable as you can be given the painful circumstance.
