When we are grieving, we need time and space to experience and process our feelings, some of which may be very intense. Often, people feel very alone or weighed down by the pain of their loss. I offer a warm, supportive environment where clients can feel safe to openly express their grief and to honor the memory of their loved one, while they start to heal and move forward in their own life.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

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.

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.

You will learn the stages of grief and loss; the steps to move through the process; and, find support in a safe environment.

Grief Counselor

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within driving distance of Ione

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.

Grief can occur from losing a relationship, losing a loved one or many other transitions or losses. Life seems to go on around you, but the hurt and sadness can take a long time to recover from. Family can only help for so long. Getting professional help is a step toward the beginnings of recovery. Overcoming grief is about processing your emotions, honoring the loss and creating small steps to a new life. Timing is individual and not everyone grieves in the same way. I would be honored to help you start feeling better.

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.

Grief and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

From death of a loved one to loss of a significant relationship, processing loss is a painful and lonely journey...especially done alone. Often, one of the aspects of loss is that there is compounding guilt for one's feelings. Normalizing and supporting my client's experience during a wrenching time is something I enjoy. The length of the process varies greatly from person to person, but support is paramount.

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.
