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.

It's natural to feel sorrow after the loss of someone we love--whether that loss be from death, divorce or estrangement. Moreover, our psychologists understand that each person copes and deals with grief differently. Our approach to grief and loss therapy focuses on healthy expressions of sorrow, acknowledging unhelpful patterns of thinking, and providing skills to cope with loss. This has proven to be a very effective approach when dealing with grief and loss.

Loss is the inevitable that takes us by surprise. The surprise is that it actually happened and then the mysterious journey can be very confusing. Ranging from feeling like you are on a roller coaster to feeling mired in depths of sadness. This journey is made all the more complex if the relationship was unresolved or conflicted. Loss is inevitable and everyone faces it. There is no one path. Many people will believe their is one path and then expect you to be on it or over it. Your path is your path. It is unique and it might have unique stumbling blocks. Your not alone.

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
