When we loose a loved one the world can be a dark place, and the outside world with good intentions tries to help us 'to let go' or 'to move on' much faster than we can and than we want to. I believe that grieving is not so much about letting go as it is about 'holding on'. Grieving is about having time to anchor that loved one in our hearts so deep until we can trust mto never loose that loving connection. The more we trust that connection to be there forever, the more we can indeed move on and allow ourselves to have a life again including joy and laughter without feeling like we leave somebody behind. Grief Therapy is about remembering, honoring, and telling stories of connection.

Grief and loss therapy should be more involved than just holding hands with a client. Grief and loss are actually forms of trauma. They can be treated actively by using techniques like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) that focuses on the traumatic event itself, and processes it until it becomes just a memory, rather than a trauma trigger. A recent client had flashbacks of holding her dying mother in her arms. After using EMDR techniques, she moved swiftly to the memories of how she helped her mother at the end of her life and her positive personal memories of their time together. Her friends were amazed how quickly she moved from painful thoughts to positive memories.

Loss is a natural part of life. Grief therapy is a recognition that individuals vary in how they perceive and react to the loss of a person, pet, job, relationship, health, or something else of importance. Grief can express itself in many ways and intensities including sadness, depression, anger, relief, anxiety, as well as maladaptive behaviors such as substance abuse, self-harm, or denying the loss occurred. In Grief Therapy we recognize that while there is no one way, or length of time, to deal with loss, when our reactions continue to be problematic the assistance of a therapist in resolving the issues which prevent us from moving through the grief can help us to live satisfying lives.

EMDR allows clients to remember emotional pain and loss without suffering the intense negative feelings that go along with it. In doing so, clients can begin to heal, move on, and even remember some great memories lost in all the pain. Traditional talk therapy helps normalize the various interlapping stages of grief. I also help clients re-evaluate their relationships that so often change as a result of loss.

They learn to choose peace over conflict, forgiveness over grievances and light over darkness. In addition to safety and caring I offer you a wide variety of therapeutic tools and techniques (cognitive, emotional, behavioral, energetic, relational and spiritual) to greatly accelerate your healing pro

Grief and loss is unavoidable reality for most people at some point during their lives and by gaining a better understanding of the stages of grief and how to cope, true healing can begin. Grief and loss happen not only when a loved one dies but often take place during times of transition and change, ( like getting a divorce, moving to a new area or losing a job). Together we can find a way to make life have meaning and purpose again.

Experiencing a difficult loss is disorienting and can feel paralyzing. It can also bring up pain from the past that you thought was long gone, or cause you to question your view of the world. This is difficult but normal. It is important to talk about your grief with someone who really understands. I offer a safe place to work through your grief in your own way, without rushing, without having to put on a pretend smile or a brave face. I cannot undo your loss, but therapy can help you begin to find meaning in it, to make sense of the world again, and to find practical ways to cope.

Wherever you are in the grief process, I offer a safe, empathetic relationship to guide you through the stages of anger, sadness, justifying, letting go. We will work together to facilitate healing.

Whether you are grieving due to the death of a loved one, ending of a significant relationship or the loss of the life you expected, it is a process. We all grieve for different reasons & in different ways, but it is important to allow yourself to grieve so that you can move forward. I'll work with you to understand the grief process including the stages of grief. An important part of the process is helping you identify & express the variety of feelings & thoughts you are likely experiencing. Often, human instinct is to avoid or numb what is painful. Unfortunately, this can prevent healing, extend the pain & create other problems. Instead, I'd like to help you find your way through the pain.

Grief and loss are inevitable in life, and can be our times of greatest pain, and also sometimes, greatest growth. Most people think first about the death of a loved one when they think about grief, but it also be the loss of a home, a friend, a marriage, a job, and so on. These events can sometimes also lead to profound grief. Often friends don't understand or know what to say. Sometimes, they even seem to disappear, when you're needing them most. You're not alone if you've experienced some of these phenomena. I'd like to help you through this painful time.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. The length of time in which one struggles with grief varies depending on the individual - there is no right or wrong time frame for grief. WalkinTalkinTherapy assist with moving through the grieve with the assistance of nature and light exercise while combining talk therapy.

When one person in a family experiences grief or loss, everyone is affected. Sometimes an entire family struggles to adjust to a death or a cross-country move or to a divorce. In any of these cases, a person's need for comfort can conflict with their emotions, causing confusion and conflict among people who are trying to support one another. In addition, children and teenagers can react to loss very differently than do adults, so the signs of pain or distress are not obvious. If there has been a loss for someone in your family or there is an impending loss (planned separation due to marital conflict, children leaving for college), I would welcome the opportunity to help.

David Nicholson, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Working with a compassionate, kind and attuned therapist during times of grief and lost can make a significant difference. Focus can be on validating feelings, connecting with the happier memories (and reducing the traumatic memories) and acquiring coping skills. Overwhelming grief and loss is understandable and going through the grieving process with a professional who cares can be an important step.
