Overcoming grief and loss requires a balance of experiencing emotional pain and the conscious attempt to move forward in life in positive ways. This is a delicate balance and healing may take time. But there is always hope for a positive future that must be nurtured within the reality of one's loss.There must be an authentic experiencing of the feelings of hurt and pain. And this may take considerable time and patience, though every person is different in the way that they handle loss. Every person should be respected in their path taken for personal healing.

Licensed Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

The impact of loss in our lives can be devastating and often impacts one's desire for life. The meaning of your life may seem very different when you experience a loss. Loss and grief often result in some form of depression or anxiety. Sometimes you may just try and divert the pain by becoming over involved in areas of your life. The effort of trying to bury the pain only serves to enhance the loss. Therefore, seeking help for your loss in therapy can be crucial. While working with you, we can begin to understand the meaning of your loss and the painful feelings. Receiving professional psychological services can help you endure the loss and still live your life with purpose.

One of my greatest areas of interest as a therapist is working with clients struggling with grief and loss. Regardless of the type of loss, allowing ourselves the time and space to grieve is essential to the healing process. Grieving is a form of catharsis---a means of letting go of our painful emotions while at the same time retaining our memories of the person we've lost. It's been an honor woking with clients doing grief work and watching them slowly and steadily return to a state of quietude and inner peace.

Grief & Loss

Renee Segal, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage, Family and Individual Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Chaska, MN

Grief is part of life as the buddists say. My approach is to help clients accept the loss by working through the pain, without feeling alone that way they can adjust to the loss and move on. Grief is painful. It is easier to deal with when one does not feel so alone. I use a strength based approach to grief work. Each person knows what is best for them to heal and I yeild to that internal wisdom.

Grief & Loss

Kelly Rose, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Chaska, MN

The loss of someone important in our lives can send us in a tailspin of difficult emotions. Grief is a natural reaction to a major life change such as divorce, illness, or the death of a loved one. Loneliness and isolation are often the most common responses to grief. Therapy can help alleviate the feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, and helplessness in a healthy way. I work with people to increase their tolerance of difficult emotions and create a plan for integrating in the "new normal" of their lives.

Grief & Loss

Meridee Wilson, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Chaska, MN

The loss of a loved one (whether through physical or emotional separation) is a profound experience and one that will forever mark a transformational point in your life. Often times the pain you feel is evidence of the depth of your caring, and you may actually feel ambivalent about reducing your suffering in the face of such devastation. You and I can walk together through this process, helping you to find peace alongside the suffering and growth in the midst of loss.

Barbara Benson, RN, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Chaska, MN

There is no greater pain we feel in life than that resulting from loss. Whether you are experiencing the visceral, gut-wrenching shock and intense longing due to a sudden loss or the aching, chronic sadness of living with a terminal illness, I would love to help. I may not be able to answer all the "why"s, but I can listen, support and help you move through, what Worden calls, the "tasks" of grieving.

Grief & Loss

Tamera Mensink, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Chaska, MN

I work a great deal with trauma issues. I consider trauma a loss. I offer EMDR therapy for trauma and loss issues and trauma for veterans. Patients who have suffered for years from anxiety or distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, abuse or other traumatic events can now gain relief from a therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). Research shows that EMDR is rapid, safe and effective. EMDR does not involve the use of drugs or hypnosis. It is a simple, non-invasive patient-therapist collaboration in which healing can happen effectively. Many patients who have made slow progress in the past benefit greatly with EMDR.

Working through the pain and uncomfortable feelings brought up from an unexpected loss (losses never truly are expected, are they?) can be a freeing process along the journey of healing and grieving. Learning how to allow yourself to heal from a loss can often be the most powerful tool you can learn and I hope to help you learn this. Grieving is also never, truly done. You will always remember the loved one and always miss them, but learning to cope with the loss will make it easier to handle as your own life's journey moves on.
