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.

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.

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.

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.

Meridee Wilson, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Minneapolis, 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.

Grieving is different than depression! At times we may not be able to distinguish between the two. Grieving is a very individual process. We all do it differently. It can result from the death of someone significant in our lives, but also from other events too. For example, meeting a long-term goal, divorce, the loss of physical health & functioning, loss of a job, or after a traumatic experience. To grieve effectively any of us need support and encouragement to face the needs and painful feelings that we often would prefer to avoid. I find that providing a warm, safe environment and supportive guidance allows my clients to feel what they need to feel in order to integrate painful losses.

Grief is a natural process that unfolds in its own way for each person. Many progress through the stages of grief without serious setbacks. In such cases, if counseling is needed, it’s often matter of supporting the person through the grieving process. Others, however, may encounter emotional roadblocks that keep the individual stuck in deep sadness and suffering for a prolonged period of time. In cases of prolonged, deep grief, I can offer a tool known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It is a powerful form of treatment that stimulates the brain’s natural ability to resolve traumas, stress and can heal grief and loss to a degree never before possible.

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.

Grief and Loss is a natural part of life, and sadly our culture doesn’t make much time for the process. Everything is so fast paced, and we are supposed to bounce back to our old selves quickly. Well, it takes time to mourn our losses, and it is so useful to have someone to listen with patience and compassion for as long as it takes to adapt to such momentous changes. If you decide to work with me, you will find a place to process your feelings, in your own time, alongside someone who is compassionate, warm and understanding. I encourage you to call to set up a complimentary, 30 minute consultation and see if we are a good fit.
