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.

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

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.

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.

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.

At one time or another we must all come to terms with loss, and the grief or mourning process that it entails. While there are different forms of grief (normal, complicated, traumatic), any healing requires resilience and strength. In my practice I focus on the Buddhist tradition of mindfulness, walking a mindful path, to help you find your inner strength, regain your equilibrium, and transform your grief into a spiritual and emotional healing that allows you to move on peacefully.

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.

Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on.
