Depression and grief are often confounded. Although the etiology may be different, the shared characteristic is the overwhelming sense of sadness and loss, which can be amenable to cognitive-behavioral techniques. Understanding of the progression through the stages of grief (typically Kubler-Ross) is usually helpful. I have had particular experience with patients who are immobilized by prolongued grieving.

Through gentle grief counseling and the use of EMDR to let go of any regrets, painful memories or other issues that may be keeping you stuck, I can help you to move forward in your healing and begin to move on with life. You can let go of the grief and mourning while keeping and strengthening your inner connection and bond with your loved one. Feel free to call me to discuss how I can help.

Grief and loss are processes and like many processes, they change and transform. What feels like heartbreak to you at first, may be transformed through our work together, into a heart that has an even greater capacity for love and connection. I believe that heartbreak is necessary to break open and expand the heart's horizons. You will never forget those who you have held so dear and lost, but through our work together, you will make peace with those losses and appreciate the gifts of those relationships.

What does it mean to suffer a loss? In today’s economy, it might mean losing a long-time job or one’s home or one’s savings. Death of a beloved mate or a parent before his or her time is surely a grave loss. The death of a child is one of the most profound losses imaginable. Perhaps one may experience “merely” the loss of a relationship, the end of a love connection. But, as we all know, to some that is not a “mere” loss but a profound trauma. My expertise is in helping you through the grief process in as optimal a way as possible; to guide you in exploring avenues of hope so that you can move on and thus avert or lift the depression that often follows a serious loss.

We will work together to remember your loss and to move forward in life. You will be able to identify what the loss means to you and if that is causing you to remain stuck in the grieving process. I will help you use that meaning to start a healing journey. You will learn to take advantage of community resources and I will help support you through a difficult range of emotions. You will learn the interaction of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors during the grieving process.

Sometimes events overpower our ability to cope. The loss of a loved one can throw our daily coping mechanism completely out of control. We all understand the early stages of loss but after awhile we feel that we should be coping better and just find that we can't. That is when a caring therapist can be of help. There is no time limit for the grieving process. It is a very personal experience. I always remind my patients that our job is never to forget, but rather to learn how to put those powerful memories into a safe place within our heart so that we can move forward with our lives. Only then can we begin to breathe again.

Grief can cause excruciating pain. It becomes difficult to be around others. You may feel guilty for not "pulling out of it" as quickly as others may feel is appropriate. Frustration may arise when feeling pity for oneself and from others. Sometimes it requires the help of grief counseling to break the cycle of painful thoughts that re-play over and over again. I am a NY Psychoanalyst and Psychotherapist in private practice for 20+ years. I work with individuals, couples and groups. Allow me to help you through this difficult time.
