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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I use CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) approach to work with the grief and loss that you might be going through. As a part of that approach you might be asked to think, talk, sometimes write at home some thoughts and memories that I will ask you about. It will give you a chance to slow down and give attention to grieving the loss of the loved ones. I use specific manual to walk you through this process.

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.

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 most effective grief work is not done alone. I can help you with feelings of helplessness, anger, sadness and anxiety that accompanies loss. The grieving process is different for everyone, but the primary benefit of counseling is to help you and your family work through and recover from loss in a healthy manner. I can help prevent the negative physical and emotional side effects that come from ignoring emotions after a painful loss. Learning to understand and respect the grieving process of a loved one can go a long way toward promoting compassion and avoiding division among family members.
