Grief and Loss is processed differently for each individual. Our counseling helps the client find the appropriate approach to deal with their personal loss issues. This includes Critical Incident Stress Debriefing as well as other Trauma Reduction techniques that reduce the risk of Post Traumatic Disorder. All therapy integrates spiritual and psychological issues appropriate to each individual's needs.

Grief is an emotional reaction to loss. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. While many people associate grief with death, grief can come from divorce or the end of a relationship, loss of good health, loss of a job, miscarriage, loss of financial stability, loss of a pet, loss of a dream, loss of family home, and so many more reasons. After a loss it is important to let our feelings out, if we bury them, they later may come out as continual depression and sadness. It is important to honestly recognize the grief or sadness and work through it.

I approach grief and loss first and foremost with a great deal of empathy. It is exceptionally painful to have lost someone or something. I find most patients keep that pain buried inside which impacts their daily functioning. I then try to encourage patients to allow the pain to surface. Once emotions are out they no longer drive us and we can, once again, be in the driver seat.

Grief is a process that does not exist within conventional timelines. Therefore, my role in therapy is to support clients wherever they are in their journey. While grief is traditionally defined as the emotions tied to the death of a loved one, loss is felt in terms of personal identity, change in family structure, possibly through divorce, or dreams that never came true. Our goal in therapy is to work towards forgiveness, acceptance, and establishing a new normal.
