We all experience grief and loss. Sometimes it impacts us so deeply that depression and a host of other emotions follow. It is important to fully grieve these big losses whether it was from a friend, loved one, loss of job or some other "ideal." Understanding the stages of loss and going through each one with success can help us to continue to live fully through the grief and then in time to find healing.

The loose someone through death, unemployment, death of a pet, or even a child leaving home can create a loss of your personal identity. I can help you answer the question of “What now?” Greif is such a unique experience family, friends, and even your minister often cannot help much. They often unintentionally say hurtful things or just plain do not seem to understand. I have a specialty in grief/loss and death preparation. I understand your needs. www.MarriageCounseling.org

I have worked with many clients who have grappled with grief and loss, and my primary approach with this issue is to nurture a sense of safety in my clients during session so that they can connect with the creative intelligence within them that knows how to process loss in a healthy manner. I teach clients about "clean pain" vs "dirty pain" so that they can navigate through the grieving process without becoming entangled in the storytelling tendency of the mind that tends to prolong suffering.

Sadnes, anger, anxiety, depression, and even strong panic feelings can often be linked to un-resolved grief or loss. It helps to talk about loss because so many mixed emotions can be processed and worked through to aid in healing much of the pain of grief. Loss is an aspect of many of the problems that people experience. Sometimes people are not aware that they never came to terms with previous losses and it helps to gain healing and insight for these cases.
