Have you experienced the pain of a loss of a loved one? Or, have you experienced the pain of a series of losses? Does your grief seem to be interfering in your ability to move forward after the loss? A loss is not something to “get over.” Rather, it is an experience to process in the healthiest way that you can so you can integrate the loss into your being and move forward with it in the best way possible. Everyone experiences grief differently. I can help you with your process. You just need to call 602-323-7824 to get started.

No one can live and not experience the pain of loss. Our culture typically views a loss as something to be replaced. Rushing to replace a loss without embracing the many emotions that come along with it will compound the pain and hinder our ability to move forward. There is simply no getting "past" the loss of a job or one's health. Losses must be commemorated with expressions of mourning and grief. Losing a pet, a friend or a cherished dream is a painful experience for even the strongest among us. Ask for help and be patient with yourself.

Grief is the most complex series of emotions humans are capable of, and it invades our lives at the most inconvenient times. Our first reaction is to bury these feelings and push them below the surface so we can carry on with our day-to-day lives. We opt for appearing like we have it all together while trying to numb the pain through various activities—resorting to anywhere from workaholism to alcoholism. But the feelings will return, and if deeply suppressed, may return with a vengeance years later. Unresolved grief can lead to depression, anger issues and a host of other problems. You can heal through this experience and I'm willing to walk with you on the journey.

Counselor for Men and Couples

1021 East Washington St., Phoenix, Arizona 85034 | 602.309.0568

I help men who are dealing with grief and loss, either of a loved one or the loss of a marriage or a relationship. A lot of times it's really difficult for men to get in touch with their emotions, and in grief, it's often not an exception. Men have a hard time with grief, just like women, and have a hard time experiencing loss. For guys, loss is not something that were used to, because we're often so acclimated to winning. to be a man is to win in our society, but life often has other plans. I help men struggle through the difficult experiences of grief and loss, and come out the other side.

When we suffer a loss we grieve, but often we are given bad advice on how to grieve - "You've grieved long enough, just move on" or "You shouldn't feel the way you feel." People may feel uncomfortable with the length or intensity of our expressions of grief and we may feel guilty about expressing grief. But feeling sad, overwhelmed and confused is a natural part of grieving. You must go through the process at your own pace. I will help you express and process your grief in a safe, supportive environment, so that you can begin to live again, not forgetting, but honoring your memories without being overwhelmed.

When a loved one passes, the sense of loss is real and deeply felt. You may be missing your best friend, family member, parent, spouse, or child. The loss can leave you challenged to find new ways to live with the emptiness, but you don't need to face this transition alone. Talking about your grief and loss with a therapist can help you to feel safe in expressing your feelings of grief, begin to talk about the loss in ways that honor your relationship with your loved one, and find peace in a way that is right for you. You have lost a member of your family, speak to a family therapist.

Loss is part of life. Grief is the process of adjusting to loss and it can be extremely painful in the best of times. When there are complicating factors the grieving process can become unbearable or blocked. Most losses can be grieved with only the support of friends and loved ones. When this is not enough, professional counseling can help unblock the process. I work with people on a personal level to find the causes of problems with the grieving process, remove them and help walk through the pain that leads to freedom.

Loss is a natural part of life, and depression can be a natural response to loss. When we can name our feelings and put words to our losses in an accepting, confidential, and encouraging environment, we are more likely to tap into the resilience that brings us back to life and relationships and a new routine. I provide a trained and experienced ear to facilitate your healthy journey through grief and loss.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

When we have lost someone important to us grief is natural. We all experience grief in our own way. Do not judge yourself for the feelings your are having during this experience. There can be moments of sadness and moments of joy as well as laughter and crying. As we grieve we experience the feelings that come with loss, and these feelings will run the spectrum of human emotion. We need to allow ourselves to learn to live with the loss, to live without the person. You don't need to face this alone. Let me help support you through this time of mourning and healing.

Grief and loss can be experienced as a result of death, divorce, a change in your work or living situation, or anything that causes a significant change in your life. The feelings that arise can be very mixed. Sometimes sadness is mixed with relief, the relief mixed with guilt, and just when you feel you've got your feet on the ground, the ground seems to drop out from under them. The process of healing from loss is complex. Often hurts that were buried for years arise with the onset of the loss. My goal is to support my clients through this painful time, and to help you develop new strengths and wisdom so that as you heal, you will find yourself stronger and wiser than ever before.

Some budgeting needed

For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Phoenix may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Phoenix public health department.
