When one suffers a painful loss it can powerfully disrupt a person’s life. My approach is to help the grieving person to experience the various stages of grief from the initial shock, to the feeling of growing numb, to the stabbing pain of grief to an acceptance of the loss and a reaffirmation of life. Together we will move through the feelings and allow sufficient time for mourning so that one comes to affirm the positive value of the lost one as well as renewing the activities and relationships still present in life.

There are steps that characterize the grieving process, including denial/isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. However, each of us goes through these stages in a highly individualistic manner. Some individuals may experience all stages of grief, whereas others may not. For some individuals they may experience these stages in succession, whereas for others their experience may be more tornado like, vacillating from one stage to another and back again. We should remember to not judge how someone is working through their grief/loss and allow the process to unfold naturally for them.

The end of one’s marriage or relationship can be one of the most stressful experiences an individual will go through in their lifetime. Both the leaving party and the one being left experience a feeling loss. It is not uncommon for an individual who is going through this loss process to have a number of emotions such as guilt, depression, anger, disappointment, embarrassment, tension and uncertainty. Therapy can help one move past the loss in a healthy manner and assist with learning from to past to make better decisions in the future.

I desire my clients to understand that grief is a normal process of living and it cannot be skirted. It must be faced. It is a process that leads to a new life reality and it involves more than death. We need to grieve all losses in a similar fashion. Life is continually evolving and unless we can adjust to these changes, we become stuck and this emotional "stuckness" can lead to other debilitating issues.
