Understanding both personally and professionally what grief and loss can do to an individual psychologically, emotionally and physically, I take an active role in listening to each person’s story. I recognize that grief and loss doesn’t always involve death of a person—it could be the loss of a job, relationship, home, or pet, among other things. I first allow each person the space and necessary time to share their story and unload their grief and loss. I hone in on the place each person is getting stuck and consider the best treatment approach. Often, EMDR is highly effective for treating grief, but I use a variety of approaches to help a person move forward in their life’s journey.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
