How we grieve depends deeply upon our own personal experiences and pain. I work to assist each individual to grasp the depth and poignancy of this ended relationship and give them the tools that they need to live without this person/creature.

The loss of a family member or a close friend can be a traumatic event. It's common to have a mixture of feelings at this time as well as difficulty picturing how our life can go on without our loved one. In therapy it can be helpful to reminisce about our experiences with them and articulate the feelings we have, no matter what the feelings or experiences are. All while in a private and safe environment

During times of loss it is important to ask for help and realize that you are suffering from a deep grieving process that a time table cannot be set too. I have been treating clients who have lost loved ones through both natural means and also violent crimes for over 15 years. Each person is unique and each process is different. It is important to me that I get to know my clients needs and help them with gentle coaching and compassionate understanding.

Losing a baby is the hardest challenge that any parent can face. There are no words to describe the grief and pain that follow. It is a loss that cannot be measured. Parents can feel utterly alone, wondering if they can survive as relatives and friends are encouraging them to move on. Anger can mount in trying to understand why. Grief and loss take time to heal. I work with fathers who have lost a baby, had a stillbirth, termination, or lost a baby in neonatal care. Take the time to reach out for help. This is a difficult journey that takes time and is slow. The death of a baby is hard for many to understand. I encourage you to care for yourself and reach out for help.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J.

For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Any time there is a significant loss in our life , grief will follow. Something we value is gone and there is an emptiness, a sadness within our heart. Grief is a realization of our powerlessness, the awareness that our hard work, our prayers, or our will power can not restore what has been lost. Grief is a process, a time of recovery. We need a safe place where we can express our feelings, receive empathy, love and supper to work through the pain. Mourning and grieving are a part of moving to the next phase, we should neither eliminate this season nor stay in it. We are unable to keep someone from dying, stop a child from choosing sin, or prevent a spouse from makin wrong choices.

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.

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....

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.

Everybody grieves differently, which means we need to find a unique method of remembering the loved one. Clients tend to enjoy being creative about healing and giving a tribute to the life of a loved one. All the stages of grief come and go out of order so this work needs to be flexable. I've had my clients write letters, make boxes that they fill with memories of their loved one, write poems, or songs, and sometimes even make a temproary shrine.

During the process of grieving, it is so important to have a safe and supportive place to talk about your loss. Though this time may be very difficult for you, it is so valuable to feel and express all the emotions and thoughts you are experiencing, so that eventually the storm will subside and you can move forward. Moving forward does not mean your loved one is ever forgotten, it just means that you can now find meaning and peace with life as you now experience it.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Very few losses are easy. Even persons who extensively prepare for loss are not ready for the intensity of how it feels when it happens. We cope with life by forming valued relationships and attachments to things. We need our attachments and loss can make it feel like we do not know how we can go on. A dilemma with loss is that reality demands that we move on, while to let go is to invite many painful and difficult feelings. I will respect both as you try to move forward through the hard feelings and the often unpredictable stages of grieving, so that you can find a way to cope, face up to, and move forward with your life.

Loss in all its forms in an integral facet of life. Most of us have formed deep bonds with spouses, family, and friends, and grieving is both a testimony to the deep importance of those others to us, and part of a difficult, gradual process of letting go. Therapy work includes the honoring of either ended or failed relationships--deaths of many types--and also the grieving of we go through due to illness and aging.. A good therapist-patient relationship deals with numerous such painful "necessary losses", as well with successes in life.

I have been trained on many different methods to helping a client through their trauma so that they can begin living without PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms. Many people come to therapy because of the nightmares, trouble sleeping, having flashbacks, and having intimacy issues because they cannot let their guard down. For 10 years I worked using strictly a “person centered” approach to therapy. That means that I would let the survivor tell their story in their own way and not really guide them much. My main job was to make sure they felt safe and figured out ways to be safe. This process took a very long time, but it ....

Losing someone you love can leave you shocked, numb, sad, lonely, confused or frustrated. You cannot NOT grieve. It needs to be expressed in a healthy way so that you can heal and eventually feel joy again. One of my specialties is working with people that are grieving. It doesn't matter if the loss was recent or a long time ago. I help my clients to accept, allow, express and cope with their feelings of loss and sadness, so that it doesn't rob them of feeling the joy they can eventually have in life.

Many losses can feel unbearable. Sometimes it may feel like you cannot survive the pain. Grieving is painful, however repressing the pain is worse. It is crucial that you express and mourn your losses. Emotional illness like depression and anxiety occur when we do not express our grief. I would like to help you work through the grieving process and begin living your life again.

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.

Faced with the death of a loved one is for most of us an emotional challenge filled with pain. Talking to another will help you process the many confusing thoughts and emotions which accompany grief. Grief never happens in a predictable way. Having a professional therapist help you through the "stages of grief" will enable you to understand the complexity of grief, offer you comfort, and give you hope for the future. The "grief process" can be overwhelming at times and knowing you have a skilled counselor to guide you through this journey will offer solace in a difficult time. Losing a loved one may change our lives forever, but eventually the pain can be transformed.

Grief and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

Death comes quickly or slowly in everyone's life. Loved-ones might suffer chronic illness followed by painful death. In these situations, grief and loss occur before the loved-one has actually died; the experience of death is a drawn-out process of sadness. Loved-ones can also die suddenly and shockingly. Without any warning, someone is gone. Regret, guilt, wishes to have done something differently compound grief. Sadness, emptiness, confusion, over-whelm and numbness follow too. Children dying is beyond pain Relief comes from honest & open work--the type of psychotherapy that few friends or family feel equipped to provide you during your time of loss.

Is your grief stopping you from living the fulfilling life you desire? I believe that while grief is a natural reaction to experiencing loss, the process differs for everyone. Grief can have physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. I work with individuals and families on processing grief as the difficult and eventual acceptance of loss. The loss becomes a vital part of one’s life narrative life rather than its center. Healthy grieving is a gradual process toward coping with the loss and developing a renewed interest in daily activities. I understand the devastation of loss.

We all experience forms of grief and loss at times in our life. If we can thoroughly and deeply allow ourselves to grieve our losses, it lessens the chance loss will convert into depression. The natural tendency is to avoid this process, but we benefit greatly from submitting to it. Loss is inevitable, but we can have an influence on how we choose to handle it. One of my greatest privileges is to come alongside someone who is grappling with a profound loss in their life. It can be a time of significant transformation.
