I am committed to helping my patients cope with grieving the loss of a loved one by encouraging them to express their emotions and helping them find meaning in situations that are often tragic. I try to employ a patient approach to help with the essential task of adjustment to such sudden change. Grief therapy also involves the loss of body parts, body functions and adjustment to an illness which is often life threatening

I know personally how devastating grief is. When we lose someone or a relationship we love, it feels as if we will not be able to ever recover. Sometimes we get stuck. With a directed grief approach, you can learn how to manage your loss and move through the process. By discussing your feelings and understanding about grief, we will release the pain more quickly and retain what was beautiful, helping you move towards acceptance.

When someone matters to us it is as if there are hollow tubes that are connected to our hearts. Traversing these tubes are our needs. The more important the person is to us the more tubes there are that connect our hearts. When we loose someone it is as if the tubes are axed off at the other end; our needs still reach out but now there is no one there to meet them, and that is painful. Grief work consists of plucking out these tubes, one-by-one, from our heart. It takes both time (e.g., across seasons, special occasions, memories) and the avoidance of practices that don't work (e.g., trying to tape the tubes onto someone else, getting drunk). I've helped many with this so feel free to call.
