Life is full of many losses, the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, illness, loss of home, loss of friendships. With loss comes grief .We may not grieve as hard or as much when moving to a new home as we do when we have lost a loved one but we do still grieve. When we grieve we go through many stages, such as denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance. This process is unique to each individual and is unique to the kind of loss experienced. In therapy I will support you as you process often times very painful feelings related to your loss. Therapy will give you the support you deserve and in your own time you will be able to move forward in your own life.

Each experience of grief is unique, complex, and personal, and I will tailor treatment to meet your specific needs. I will help you find different ways to maintain healthy connections with the deceased through memory, reflection, ritual, or dialogue about the deceased and with the deceased. I will help you view your grief and loss with curiosity and without judgment, in an effort to understand and heal. I can help you recognize and access your inner strength, autonomy, and capacity to step back into life after loss.

Losing someone close to you is difficult for anyone to go through. We all experience grief in different ways, which means there is no one-size-fits all approach to loss. If you have experienced a loss in your life, my approach to grief and loss will help you to overcome your struggles and move forward with your life. You will leave your sessions with a better outlook and more insight to your situation.

Most of us are familiar with Elizabeth Kubler Ross' model of grief with the 5 stages. While this is helpful information, this model does not fit everyone. I practice from the Winslade and Hedtke model of grief which practices "Remembering". I find that using this model or this model in conjunction with the 5 stage grief model is helpful to helping clients explore loss and grief in finding a pathway forward that honors their own experiences.

Although grief is an inevitable experience in life, coping with loss can be immobilizing. Because each individual is unique, finding the support you need to move through to a place of peace and acceptance is vital. I work with clients to help them process the pain of loss by addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that may be keeping them from resolving their pain and moving forward to a place of healing and acceptance. We work together to build a structure that both motivates and enables the healing process to begin and ultimately gives them the opportunity to overcome and triumph over grief.

Grieving is a process that is unique and different for each individual. Sometimes we put it off because we are afraid that once we face it, it will never end! Grieving, while difficult, can be a sacred time to reflect, accept, and recover. You can start healing and moving forward. I can help you deal with the painful losses you've experienced. Although loss cannot be reversed, learning how to accept and cope with grief can be tremendously empowering. I will support you in a gentle, sensitive manner as we honor your experience and work toward peaceful resolution of your pain.

Grief is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

Navigating life after the loss of a loved one can be difficult. Oftentimes survivors are left feeling overwhelmed by emotion states, unable to function in every day life. We can feel guilt for wanting to “get over” our grief which can keep us from moving forward. Come in and learn how you can both honor the loss and actively work towards reclaiming your life from debilitating unaddressed emotions.

When you lose something or someone important or close to you, it may be difficult to make sense of life or to feel that others can relate to or understand what you are going through. If you need someone to talk to about what happened, I am here for you. I understand that sadness is sometimes something that shouldn't be fixed, but embraced. I will come alongside you, listen to you, and support you in the journey of making sense of what has happened to you. Grief and Loss is a painful time of life, but its one that every human being goes through. You are not alone. One strategy I use to help my Grief/Loss clients is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) where I help you explore unhelpful thoughts

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.

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.

I have helped clients grieve losses of loved ones by looking at the meanings that the person lost had in a client's life. Depending on the type of loss, we also write good-bye letters to lost people to gain closure. We also celebrate their lives, choosing to remember the positive aspects that this person added to the client's life. Spirituality helps tremendously in grief counseling. Giving up control or our existence to a higher power helps us come to peace with the fact that we cannot control events and behaviors outside our control. We can bring a sense of control back into our lives by setting up daily schedules or rituals.

As someone who has dealt with grief and loss in my own life, I am able to hold space for the many different experiences and emotions that grief can express itself as. Sometimes we just need someone to witness our experience. In our culture, we rush grief. It can be a slow process, and I respect that. Additionally, I often use art therapy in grief work as it helps us express what we cannot find the words for.

I believe we are meant to love. But as loving human beings, the loss of important people in our lives is one of our most difficult challenges. Let me help you move through your grief, staying gently with you as you mourn. Grief has it's own timeline, with healing occurring quietly and inconsistently. Over time and with support, you will begin to experience hope, and even joy again.

Grief is tough to handle alone. You have tried everything you can think of and the sadness still continues. Grief can affect your life and make it hard to go on day to day. Suffering loss alone is not necessary. There is a way to feel better and I would love to help you. You might think you "should be over this" and you are not. How you are feeling now is OK. I would love to help you feel better. Give me a call at 916-847-8053 today to schedule an appointment by using this link: https://kim-mclaughlin.clientsecure.me/client_portal

Loss is like an emotional injury that requires grief to heal. There is a natural healing process that occurs, but sometimes our grief does not resolve and therapy can help support you during the natural process of healing or help when healing is not progressing. I will help you accept the reality of the loss, have a safe place to experience and understand the pain of grief, and adjust to the loss and all that it requires to create a "new normal." Moving forward means finding meaning in life in spite of the loss and also holding on to and remembering the parts of the loss that held joy.
