Everyone reacts to death differently. Some become numb and will eventually disconnect from friends. Despair sets in as the reality of the loss settles. The grieving process can be long and isolating. My objective is to counsel the soul with methods generated by the Spirit of God. So that the process is in reliance to Him. Receiving reassurance and feeling understood is also part of the counseling process and will make the recovery process more complete during one of life's most challenging times. Even Jesus wept. It is okay to do so. It is both natural and biblical to grieve. It is part of the healing process that I look forward to helping you through. You are not alone.

Loss occurs in many aspects of our lives. The grief that comes with loss has a trajectory that must be honored, but that is not often known and therefore becomes "derailed." The opportunity to explore one's grief and express all aspects of it safely allows us to get "back on track" and move through the process appropriately to the point of beginning to recover and move on without leaving behind those things of value.

Throughout the course of our lifetime, we will lose someone or something important to us (i.e. a loved one, pet, job/career, home, self-confidence). The feelings of grief are similar to symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. What you are experiencing is normal and everyone has their own way of grieving. However, staying in the process to long can lead to clinical depression. Our therapists are trained to help you understand the stages of grief and will provide you with the skills to move through the process. Give us a call today to learn more about how we can help you with grief & loss.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

As much as any of us might wish grief and loss weren't a part of life, if we can integrate them into who you become, we really do grow to a better version of ourselves. The pain of grief isn't something to "get over," and the messages we sometimes get from others to do it can lead to withdrawal, more pain, and more feelings of loss. Working through your grief isn't about "closure" -- trying to close the door on your sadness and loss doesn't serve you. But with support, you can find your way forward to growth, joy, and a fuller life.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief and Loss is not just about the death of someone we love. It can be triggered by the loss of a pet or a friend, by a move to a new home, or even by a job promotion. Each time our "normal" changes, we experience some form of grief or loss. When I meet someone who is experiencing grief or loss, I know that their journey is going to be unique and the process will include stories from the past, reflection on dreams that are lost, and exploration of new possibilities for the future. Grief and Loss can be a lonely phase, but meeting with a counselor can help ease some of that burden even if there is no specific goal except to talk about what is on your mind this week.

Aging, physical changes, limitations and challenges, terminal illness, loss and grief often require the help of a trained professional in order to feel whole and complete during this stage of life. The transpersonal perspective includes exploration of spirituality and is known to be one of the best for helping clients deal with change and loss in life. My own mindful awareness meditation practice and study in this area allow me to work well with clients in all stages of the grief process.

Grief and loss are some of the most difficult issues we can encounter. The feelings can be very intense and feel as though they will never end. All feelings have a beginning, a middle, and an end. As we move through the stages of grief, we can feel confused about what is normal and what is to be expected. Seeking help will allow you to move through your issues more quickly and effectively. I will assist you in moving through the grief process towards healing and expanded growth.

Grief encompasses a broad range of feelings and behaviors that are common after a loss. Sadness is the most common feeling . It is common and expected to experience sadness if you have lost someone you love. One of the most important factors in healing is having support. Even if you are not normally comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstance, it is important to have some place where you can express them when your grieving. We can help you gain an understanding of your feelings and provide you coping strategies for dealing with the loss.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. 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.

When someone lost the loved one, he/she will experience different feelings, such as sad, angry, lonely, confused, and guilty. When these strong emotions all come together at the same time, one can be overwhelmed. Hence, grief counseling can help. Everyone goes through birth, aging, sickness, and death, and grief is a normal process of human’s life. Grief counseling gives you an opportunity to find a better way to memorize the loved one while moving forward your life.

Loss is inevitable. It is the flip side of love and the greatest pain we know. Hearts can break and hearts can heal. We must first accept ALL feelings. We can cultivate gratitude for the gifts our loved one gave us. Sometimes it is also important to acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the one we have lost., the ways they may have caused pain to themselves and others. If the person has been a large part of our daily living, it is as if we need to recreate our lives bringing new resources into the emptiness. The waves of extreme pain become less frequent with time. The person's memory remains with us, and their gifts to us can inspire those very strengths in ourselves.

Using an eclectic approach tailored to the unique demands of my clients, I will help you to create a safe place to process your primary and secondary losses, your feelings, and support in developing resilience, meaning, and adaptive coping strategies to deal with the roller-coaster common with grief. I make use of various tools in-session and through assigned homework to help support your grief processing and adaptation. I follow the two contemporary models of loss adaptation, which include Martin and Doka's model of adaptive grieving (intuitive and instrumental) styles and Stroebe and Schut's Dual Process Model (loss-orientation and restoration orientation).

It is human to try to avoid emotional pain. There are many ways of doing this: overeating, drinking too much, overworking, developing “anger” issues, becoming depressed and unmotivated, cultivating addictions that give us temporary relief but create other problems in our lives. Eventually, avoidance can backfire and become a destructive force. By helping clients identify and process their grief and experience their feelings gradually and safely, it becomes possible to move on while honoring losses and to reconnect with a sense of aliveness, gratitude, and passion.

Working through shock, numbness, denial, and disbelief is common to the grieving process, as well as emotions such as anger, guilt, and depression that may emerge. I support my clients in working through their grief, which helps them avoid physical or psychological symptoms. Readjustment and transformation develop gradually, as a new life emerges.
