Grief & Loss

Most patients I see realize that they have had losses and have suffered grief and yet are not sure exactly how to grieve or even if they should be grieving. "Shouldn't I be over this by now?", I hear many patients ask me. My answer to them and to you is that you aren't over it until you are over it, and even then the losses you have suffered are something that is a part of your life story. In our work together we create a place for you to mourn the losses that you have suffered, go through the stages and grief in a safe and supportive environment---for the only way to get through the other side of grief is to go thought it.

In treating grief and loss, it is essential to facilitate a safe, respectful therapeutic interaction, in which clients are able to tell their story, process and express their feelings of grief, explore the meaning of their loss, and revise their relationship with the deceased. Additionally, using cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques enable people to develop skills for coping with the anxiety, depression, and difficult emotions that may arise as a result of the grieving process.
