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.

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.

Pre-Licensed Counselor, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046

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).

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.

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.

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.

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at or 877-606-6161.

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.
