I listen to all the ways a person is grieved, often more than one. I try to show empathy and feeling for their pain. I try to have them fully express all the events and feelings of their loss. I also encourage them to go to grief groups which can be at hospitals and churches and funeral homes. I give an excellent pamphlet “How Can I Live With My Loss?” to most grieving clients, I explain the stages of normal grief and give papers on handling grief and loss. If grief seems prolonged, I can use a grief workbook or loan other books on the subject.

No human experience matches that of loss. From the time we are born until the moment of our death we are on a journey of loss. Grief is natural, but it is not easy. In fact, it may be the most challenging of all human experiences, especially where love and dependency have mingled to establish a barrier to moving on with normal life. There is need for "letting go" and there is need for discovering resources of the self that can attend to the deep needs that were there counted on in the beloved one. Psychotherapy is personal space to discover the meaning of a loss, work through barriers, and construct a serviceable future. It is a space for continuing authorship of one's unique story.
