Grief and bereavement can conjure early childhood feelings of loss, rejection and abandonment, and foster anger and rage; therefore my interventions are targeted to address past and present experiences. One of my most valuable contributions to the treatment of loss is my thorough understanding of the depth of pain and the personal disruption bereavement can cause. Grief does not become complicated verbal expression is encouraged.

We often think of grief in regard to the loss of another person with whom we felt a connection such as a family member, friend, or close colleague. Grief can also be a response to the loss of a significant part of our lives such as a home in the event of a natural disaster, a job due to downsizing, or prized personal belongings, among other losses. Grief tends to pass through several stages over time and ultimately resolves in restoration of a feeling of well-being. Many people find supportive therapy at Capital Counseling to be helpful in working through their feelings of grief and coming to acceptance of their losses as well as positive plan for moving forward.

Different cultures express loss differently. They differ. on the loss of the soul vs.the loss of the body. In Egyptian cultures, even inanimate objects like clocks have 'ko' or 'sa'. So many clients, especially children, can't recognize spiritual death. Depressed people seem to be dead inside. This is greatly different from someone who stops breathing. I believe we are all of a 'divine soul', and even if the person has died, we can learn to remember him or her in spirit.

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.

Clients experiencing loss are often at a cross roads, their life continues to move on but someone is missing from their day to day experiences. These clients may be struggling to understand how to live their life without the person they have lost. I like to work with clients as they learn how they can begin to move forward and live their life so they can honor and cherish their loved one's memory.

Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.

I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

Whether we endure loss due to changes in life roles, the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one, grief impacts all aspects of our being. The process of grief is one of reconstructing the meaning of our lives and relationships. We heal by taking time to focus on our loss, sharing our pain with someone we trust, and attending to the meaning of our loss in the present moment. I will walk with you, bear witness to your struggle and help you move through the debilitating maze of grief. When you allow yourself to grieve fully, the experience of loss has the power to bring you into deeper connection with yourself and feel the beauty, mystery and and meaning of life in a new way.

I will help and support you in this very very painful time of your life. We will look at how these lost relationships affected and shaped you, and work toward helping you begin to open to life again, at a pace that suits your rhythm of adjusting to this major life transition. www.ThriveTherapydoc.com

Research now shows us that there are not set stages and ways to grieve the loss of a loved one. A person's ability to move on is based on their own resilience. Making meaning of one's life can help. Whether through writing a narrative, recalling fond memories or making new ones through creating new interests, connection helps with loss. Therapy gives a welcome space to share the many feelings that come along with letting go.
