I take a very person oriented approach to working with individuals coping with grief and loss issues. My priority is my client's safety and well-being. I will work with my clients to process and accept whatever triggers are producing the grief and loss emotions. Then I will assist them in gaining an understanding and attaching a meaning to why certain events have occurred. It is important to also learn and utilize coping skills to move through the grief and loss continuum.

We all experience grief and loss usually when we loose a loved one or family pet. Certainly grief affects all members of the family. Individual and family therapy are usually both indicated. Grief and loss is also a significant problem in separation and divorce both for adults and children. It is very important to process feelings that may be emotional left overs that can be damaging if not dealt with, so that relationships can be re-established . Many times this involves deep hurts, and loyalty conflicts that can affect future relationships, and present emotional behavior and/or school or work performance.

Grief and loss is a very personal experience . Losing soneone really hurts and coping with the loss can be a very difficult process. Sometimes frienfds and or family memebers do not know what to do or say. Having a place where one who has experinced loss can safely express thier feelings and thoughts with a professional can be helpful. Grieving is a process and a very personal one in nature.

Grief and loss can occur in a number of circumstances, ranging from the death of a loved one or the ending of a relationship or friendship, to the loss of one's home or even a valued possession. Though the degree of severity may differ, grief and loss will likely follow. Together we can identify and address the difficult thoughts and feelings that may arise after an experience, as such.

I like to help the person work through grief and loss by helping them connect with their sorrow and bring loving closure to those relationships. This may include role playing and also narrative writing allowing them to express their feelings, memories, regrets, etc. Often we may create an experience where they can say goodbye and begin to let go and move on.

Loosing someone close to you is one of the most devastating and difficult life experiences a person will have to endure. I believe in the healing power of the process of "letting go" through remembering and reliving the things you miss most about the person you lost. Give yourself permission to at first grieve these moments, and then go out into the world and experience them again and again enhanced by the memory of doing it with the loved one who is now gone physically.

I work with clients using a compassionate approach to help them cope with feelings of sadness, shock, anxiety, and anger after a loss. Some techniques I use are mindfulness and acceptance exercises for depression, sharing photos of the loved one, journaling, and expressive therapies. With children I read various books about loss and process their thoughts and feelings after the story. I help clients to work through their feelings, invest their emotional energy in new people and activities, and to regain their strength in order to heal and to accept the loss.

We generally think of grief and loss in relation to the death of people we have been close with, such as family, friends, coworkers and others with whom we have been close. While death is certainly the worst kind of loss we are called upon to face and grieve over, there are other meaningful losses we must endure and find a way to grieve toward resolution and inner peace. Such losses as the breakup of significant relationships, through divorce or separation from any loved one certainly call for grieving. Loss of one’s job can amount to a meaningful loss that requires grieving to go on with a new and constructive adjustment. The loss of one’s health can also present serious challenges to keepin....
