Everyone moves through grief and loss differently. Therapy can be invaluable at a time of loss and grief. So many people want to push grief and loss down-not wanting to deal with what has happened. In order to move forward, we must move through it. Therapy can provide a space to unpack, understand, and feel our emotions. This leads to a happier and more fulfilled life.

It can be very difficult to accept the loss of a loved one. Grief can sometimes last years and make it hard for someone to move forward in their lives. I use EMDR a technique that is used to overcome trauma to quickly help you move forward and get through the grief. Usually we are afraid to let go of grief because we feel all we have left is the grief. With EMDR you not only move forward, but in your heart, you get the person back. Now you will be able to have the pleasant memories, without the heavy bad feelings. You will be able remember the joyful moments with that person. As long as we have these moments in our minds, they will always be with us.

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.

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.

If it is a past loss we will talk about that relationship and what it meant to you, and see how that person affected you in your current life and what he/she meant to you. If it is a current or impending loss, we can focus on day-to-day issues to lessen anxiety, and process how to handle what time is left. Practical issues may be discussed. if you find yourself obsessing we will probably focus on feeling, if you find yourself lost in feeling, we may focus on verbalizing your thoughts and your feelings. If you are overwhelmed by depression and find it difficult to function, I will make recommendations for medications and/or alternative strategies.

After you have lost a loved one, well-meaning people say it's time to "get over it" or "move on." Grieving doesn't work that way. To absorb the experience of loss and find a way to hold onto the relationship with your loved one is a process that unfolds. We don't proceed through a standard set of "stages of grief;" sometimes you may experience many different stages -- from sadness to anger to disbelief -- all in one day. The supportive presence of an experienced, compassionate counselor can help you cope with the feelings and questions and rediscover your strength and vitality. To ask any questions you may have about grief and loss or to make an appointment, contact Jean Fitzpatrick.

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.
