Grief & Loss

Howard Rossen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

59 West 74th street, New York, NY

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.

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.

The loss of a loved one is a tremendously painful and personal process. Grief and bereavement therapy with Dr. Vaughan provides a source of support and serves as an outlet for expressing the wide array of emotions and experiences - disbelief, anger, depression, sadness, emptiness, heartbreak, denial, guilt - that often comprise the grieving process. In a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment, Dr. Vaughan helps clients to make sense of their experiences and to find ways of coping with strong emotions.

Although there is a general process to grieving, it is much like a finger print. Everyone has their own unique way of getting through it. My focus in grieving work is to help you understand how greif and loss may be impacting all aspects of your life, and to identify proactive ways that you can self-soothe, minimize difficult emotions, and begin to develop a comfort level in connecting with the memory of your loved one.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist; Mental Health Counselor; SLP

Amsterdam Ave. & 70th Street, New York, NY

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.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, and grief is a natural part of the healing process. the reasons for grief are many, such as the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

200 Rector Place, 23L, New York, NY

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

Grief is unavoidable and comes in many forms. From the loss of a loved one to the loss of a job or career, grief can be overwhelming and make accomplishing daily tasks difficult at best. Seldom do family and friends understand what you are going through. And after the crisis is over, your supportive friends and family become consumed with their lives. Therapy with me can offer you an environment to go through your grief while you continue your relationships outside of the office.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. 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.
