Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.

With the diagnosis of a terminal disease or loss of a loved one, a normal range of emotions and issues arise including depression, anxieties, anger, guilt, and more. People’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors towards themselves and others are affected in different ways and can impact their routines and relationships. In some severe cases complex grief and profound trauma can last for years when combined with prior untreated conditions. I work compassionately with individuals, caregivers, family and children to help them understand their emotions and difficulties and assist them in using their inherent strengths for healing.

People who are experiencing grief and loss often feel alone and isolated. I help my clients and patients feel less isolated by providing a safe supportive environment and encouraging people to express all of their feelings related to grief and loss. As the people I work with feel less alone and more supported, they are able to work through painful issues and feel more in control of their lives.

Healing from grief and loss may take mainly time and mourning the loss with support from caregivers and loved ones. But bereavement may also become more complicated if the loss activates painful situations from the past without our even knowing it. Therapy can help with either a simple (though sorrowful) mourning process, or a more complicated bereavement process, by providing a safe and reliable setting to release painful feelings and to understand the meaning behind those feelings. While the therapeutic process may require understanding the past, it should also help you to eventually live in the present and to move on to the future when you are ready.

Grief is a main focus of my pracice and one in which many of my clients have experienced releif and a transformation. Grief is almost always manageable but requires time. How fast a person recovers from grief depends on many things such as mood, satisfaction in life, meaning and support. A person who is living a life that feels meaningful tends to recover from gief/loss sooner. A happy person recovers from grief sooner than a depressed person. Understanding the stages of grief loss helps guide a person through recovery. Focusing on mood and meaning are excellent ways to expedite the grieving process. In some cases grief/loss can be a wake up call to motivate a person to live well.

Throughout the life cycle, the loss of attachment to a primary person in one's life is painful and disorienting. For children, the loss of a parent, sibling, or significant adult can have lifelong effects. Children lack the verbal ability to express their feelings. Through playful interaction children and teens in individual, family, and/or group modalities can express their feelings and acquire resiliency. For adults, the bereavement process can be affected by the type of loss and the quality of their relationship with the deceased. While no two people react to loss in exactly the same way, Phyllis will facilitate the grief process, and help clients attain acceptance.

Losing a loved one is traumatic. Grief is even more complicated if the relationship was at all conflicted. I am an empathic listener who helps you through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I see my role as meeting you where you are, validating your feelings, helping you to resolve ambivalent feelings and to integrate the loss into your life so that you can live with it on a daily basis. I strive to provide an environment of trust to explore these deeply painful and personal feelings. I encourage you to gradually progress through the stages of grief so that you can say goodbye peacefully and incorporate the memories into your life positively.
