"Aren't you over that yet?" "Is that still bothering you?" I dislike those phrases very much! Everyone grieves differently and no two losses are the same. A loss can be characterized by a move, having to re-home a pet, changing jobs, and of course the loss of a loved one. One might feel angry while another might feel relieved. Someone might need a month off of work whereas another only a couple of days. It is okay and you can heal. I can help you sort through your feelings and you can feel better. Call me Today at 714-432-9856.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

We all suffer loss in our lives. That's just a reality of existence. Grief, unresolved, can greatly interfere with our ability to live our lives and be all that we can be. I help people to find resolution to all of life's losses and disappointments by listening and guiding them to identify how their life is being affected. I help them find a new perspective through the use of healing methods such as imagery, EMDR and a variety of other therapeutic interventions. Life can be good and meaningful, no matter what or who has been taken away. You can make sense of it all and move on.

Grief and loss can leave a person feeling depressed, vulnerable, angry and abandoned, with nowhere to turn and no one to turn to. It can help tremendously, to have a skilled therapist, who understands the process of what you are going through, and can help guide you through that process. There are five stages of grief, and it can be very beneficial to know these stages and recognize where one is at, as they head down the pathway toward healing.

Grief & loss is often felt with the death of a loved one. It can also be experienced from the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your home. The grieving process can be complicated. You may love someone who suffers from a significant memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. You may feel guilty for grieving the loss of the person you knew before the illness because you feel you should be grateful he/she is still alive. As a person loses their memory, an important part of who they are gets lost. It is appropriate for this grieving process to begin before death. I would love to support you through whatever loss you are currently experiencing.

Navigating the pain of grief is an individual process, which can result in a myriad of social/cognitive/physical/emotional symptoms. Each person’s experience is unique, and should be treated as such. Treatment helps to understand the complexity of the loss, in addition how to manage its symptoms. Many people around you have unrealistic expectations of how you should handle, or can be uncomfortable with normal grief reactions. The support you receive at this difficult time should be consistent to help you to manage the wide variety of feelings you will have for weeks and months following such a major loss in your life.
