To help a client cope through grief and loss, I sometimes use the example of how an oyster forms a pearl. The oyster ingests a grain of sand that causes pain, and which cannot be removed or dissolved (just like we cannot eliminate the pain of missing a loved one). So the oyster begins to encase the grain of sand with layers of calcium-like substance, that makes the grain of sand easier to carry and hold, without the rough edges. Coping through grief and loss can involve learning how to unpack, experience, and adjust how we carry the pain,. Therapy can help you soften and encase the pain of loss, forming a "pearl" around it that is easier to carry with you, and perhaps make it more precious.

There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

In your grief and sense of loss, my primary job is to be able to truly listen to you. To have the strength to really understand and feel the change in your life, and to have the courage to absorb and empthaize with that loss, not to protect myself from it. Hopefully, with that help, you will be provided the forum in which to begin to adjust to your loss.

Grief and Loss are a normal aspect of human life, however there are times when it is traumatic, unexpected or more difficult to deal with. My goal is to provide a compassionate ear for you but to always help you move past the grief by asking "what is better". Focusing on even the smallest positive changes can help you move forward and begin the healing process.

Grieving and loss is part of life. While we all share aspects of this life event, it is an individual experience and needs to be addressed with care and respect. It is an opportunity for individual growth and it can have an impact on our relationships to others including siblings and spouses as well as many aspects of our life including the spiritual dimension of our being and our questioning of the meaning of life. Sometimes it is useful to work with narrative, memories and dreams. There is not one way to feel, to act or to be as one grieves. It just is.

Individual sessions are focused on helping you not just cope but recover from loss, using The Grief Recovery Method One-on-One Program. This is a 7 week program in which we will meet once a week. Recovery from loss is achieved by a series of small and correct choices made by the griever. It is my job, along with The Grief Recovery Handbook, to explain those action choices to you, and guide you in taking them. Grief Support Groups provide a safe environment for you to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life, and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain. It’s an action-based group that involves reading and writing assignments outlined in The Grief...(view profile to read more)

Grief and loss are a natural - though painful - part of life. It's normal to be sad and to grieve. Unfortunately, our fast paced society often wants us to medicate and move on more quickly than might really be healthy or good for us. I encourage people to have patience with themselves and the process of grief, and to allow themselves to fully feel their feelings so that they can truly heal. Paradoxically, allowing full expression of the sadness, anger, and other emotions often does allow a person to move forward more quickly. I also always assess carefully to make sure that "normal" sadness has not spiraled into a true clinical depression, and I encourage prompt treatment if it does.
