We all will inevitably experience loss- i.e., the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship, possibly significant life transitions. Grief and loss work focuses on developing effective and healthy coping mechanisms while moving through often challenging emotional states. Often individuals utilize maladaptive coping strategies, such as substances, alcohol and/or food to help minimize painful feelings. My philosophy is that while there are identifiable stages of grief and loss, they are not experienced sequentially. Navigating often confusing and competing emotions is necessary to ultimately heal.

Loss and grief are natural occurrences in life. However, they can be major intrusions in the quality of our life if we are too caught up in them. They can also interfere if we are so defended against them that they limit our ability to function or impair our daily interactions with others. Sometimes, what we have lost is not a person but a job or a situation in our life that has had great meaning for us, like our self-image. That can feel devastating. Just like losing a person, these events must be grieved if we are to be able to move on. Grieving doesn’t mean forgetting or being weak. It’s a sign of love and strength. Together, we can work through the grief so you can move on.

I have worked with victims of trauma and abuse for over 15 years. I have been trained on many different methods to helping a client through their trauma so that they can begin living without PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms. Many people come to therapy because of the nightmares, trouble sleeping, having flashbacks, and having intimacy issues because they cannot let their guard down. For 10 years I worked using strictly a “person centered” approach to therapy. That means that I would let the survivor tell their story in their own way and not really guide them much. My main job was to make sure they felt safe and figured out ways to be safe. This process took a very long time, but it ....

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.

Grief and loss are both highly individual and intensely personal. Although we all experience grief and loss in different forms (death and non death), nothing describes the pain. Together we will create tools and awareness to process these painful life bereavements.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Depression and anxiety are often a result of not having processed past difficult situations. We all experience loss, and we have a natural process involving our emotions which helps us recover. Most of us do not receive the permission or the teaching to help us use this natural process. Therapy can help work through "stuck" experiences so that we are freer to move forward in life with less restriction.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief following a loss is not only normal, but part of the healing process. Sometimes however, a subset of people experiencing normal grief find themselves drifting into a clinical depression. Dr. Levine offers supportive therapy for those experiencing normal grief and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for that subset of grieving people who grief has gotten out of control and morphed into a more severe emotional state of despair and hopelessness. Dr. Levine has over 20+ years of experience both professional and personal dealing with the grieving process. He is here to help you.

Loss can take different forms, and going through loss is one of life's biggest challenges. I understand this and believe it is essential for those going through a loss to talk about it, feel it, and grieve it. In time, healing will occur but time itself does not heal. I will provide a safe place for you to explore how your loss affects your life and help you to use the resources, time, and tools necessary to not only get through it -- but grow through it -- and survive.

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost. I will join you as you process your experience and assist in integrating the past, present and future during this very difficult time.

Losing someone is profound. Humans do not understand how to process loss. Our brain's do not know how process someone not being there. I can be there with you as you are looking to move forward with your life. Much of the work can involve processing emotion, remembering the important stories and lessons, and then choosing to move in a way that dignifies the loss.

According to the Kubler-Ross model, there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I believe that the grieving process is different for everyone. I think the most important thing for people who are dealing with loss is to accept that what they are feeling is normal for their process. My goal is to help people to grieve in a healthy way that identifies coping skills and support systems.

We may all experience the grief and loss of a loved one, a pet, a home, a sense of belonging, a career, finances or stature in life. There needs to be a time to grieve, as well as a time to be cared for and held. As co-therapists in the room together, we nurture, we provide safety, and we offer perspectives. We work on the tools couples need to get the support they deserve from each other. We believe it is essential to explore shutting down and isolating and the paths to getting back to each other. We help build safe structures to support holding the memories, the loneliness, the complexity and the growth.

The experience of grief and loss, while expected at various life stages, can result in physical pain, and the emergence of symptoms that lead to experiencing a slow downward spiral in overall wellbeing, and perhaps desire to withdrawal from personal and professional commitments. Many clients seek compassionate and sensitive guidance to navigate through the ups and downs of any number of losses, ranging from diminishing health, to ending a relationship, or other life transition. Together, clients and I develop a transformative plan to stabilize, heal, gain insight and to enhance their proficiency to improve the strength needed to reconstitute their skills and hopes for today and the future.

When we lose someone we love, it feels like we have lost a part of ourselves. Something within us has been torn out, leaving a hole that we easily imagine will never heal. The pain can be profound, the feelings of helplessness, or regret, or guilt overwhelming. Having a partnership where you can talk through these feelings can make a huge difference not only in how quickly and how well you are able to move through the process of grieving, but also how you ultimately are able to frame the experience and your memories of the person lost into the narrative of your own self and life as you move forward. What you carry with you afterward is just as important as surviving the hurt of the loss.

At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

At some point, everyone experiences the grief and loss of something or someone valuable in life. The key is knowing how to grieve one's loss. Most people don't know how to grieve and our culture does not allow for it. Entering therapy after a loss of a job, relationship, or a loved one can help heal the wounds and help the individual move on with life.

Losing someone can be hard, and you might need a place to go where you can talk freely about what you think and feel. You might think that you should be "further along" in the process than where you are. No two people grieve alike, and it's going to take you as long as it takes, and not one moment less . I help people to accept and go through their grief process, and I see grief as a testament to the love and caring that you had for the person you've lost. However, we don't just grieve for people who have died. We grieve for lost opportunities, beloved pets we've lost, and relationships that are over.
