Although loss is an inevitable part of life, it can be debilitating. I provide a safe environment where you can process your painful feelings so that you can find satisfaction and pleasure in your life again. Many people can feel paralyzed after the loss of a loved one. Often times this paralysis is a conscious or unconscious attempt to hold on to the one that was lost. Moving forward can feel unbearable, like you are losing your loved one all over again. I can help you move forward and still feel a deep connection to your loved one so that you can go on to live a life that feels fulfilling and worth living.

Losing someone or something close to you is often the most difficult event that people face in their lives. Often these events happen unexpectedly which adds to the confusion and hurt. Mourning a loss is a process that benefits from guidance from a trained professional. I can help you understand loss, mourn, and ultimately move through the pain while honoring and remembering who or what was lost.

Having experienced several losses as a child, I know the pain that people experience when they lose a sibling, a parent/grandparent, or friend. Grief can affect many areas of your life. Feeling sad, lonely, or lost is a common experience. I want to help you work through the grief process so that you can remember your loved one and continue living the life you want.

I address grief and loss issues with understanding, validation, and empathy. My deep respect for the fact that it takes time to sufficiently mourn and grieve the loss of what once was is key in working with clients who experience grief and loss. We are all unique, and we grieve in ways that may look different than other's ways. There is no wrong way to experience loss! I model compassion and patience, hoping that in time my clients can experience self-compassion and allow themselves to feel the depths of their feelings without excess shame or self-judgment. I believe that social and cultural factors may also play a role in our grieving process, so I explore those factors in therapy as well.

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.

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 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.

Nothing in life can be more difficult and painful than dealing with loss. When we love deeply we will also grieve deeply. When we don't know how to grieve well, prolong sadness and pain can remain. The therapeutic relationship is one place where a safe place can be found to open fully the pain of loss. I also offer divorce support and grief groups where a community of suffers can join in the journey of recovery.

Losing a loved one, including a pet can cause severe pain and suffering. We need to grieve. Sometimes, we need permission or help to allow us to grieve. Therapy gives us the opportunity to share our experiences, remember our loved ones, express our emotions and allow us to let the loved one rest in peace.

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.

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.

No one grieves exactly the same way. While some may grieve a loss within a short amount of time, others take much longer and both are normal. Problem areas may be an extended grief process, along with other conditions, such as depression, medical conditions, or many other life's stressors and transitions. There is no set schedule towards grieving as some individuals may show pain and suffering openly whereas others hide their sorrow but may show it in ways that even they are unaware, i.e., medical conditions, struggles in every day life projects, and inability to connect with others. Psychotherapy can help; I have a great deal of experience with grief and loss of loved ones and/or pets too

When a person looses a loved one, life can become very, very dark. I understand, and I can help. Sometimes it is not a death. Sometimes it is the loss of a relationship, an estranged relationship, a divorce. Sometimes it is the loss of health or a career. But it is always something that is very dear to the person, and losing that something causes the person's world to fall apart. I know what it is like and I can help them navigate through the darkness, and help them find a new way of life.

Saying goodbye to someone you loved, and who has loved you, is bittersweet. The thought of not seeing a beloved family member or friend again just plain hurts. It’s normal for someone to feel bitter, even angry during this time. I can help young adults grieve the death of a loved one, whether it be a person ... or a pet. I support my clients in making sense of their loss and healing their pain, so that they are able to move forward again in their lives.

Grief and loss is one of the more sensitive subjects that makes its way through a therapists office. Grief and loss can also occur in anyone at any time as a result of any type of loss. When processing grief and loss, empathy is an essential component of the therapeutic process. Grief and loss can also impact one’s sexual wants, needs, and desires. It is essential that grief and loss is thoroughly processed and given the necessary space within one’s life. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

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.

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.

Everyone's story of grief and loss is unique. There is no such thing as the right way to grieve or the appropriate amount of time to grieve. Most everything people tend to say about grieving and loss is addressing their own discomfort. Grieving does not have to be only about enduring and getting through the pain of loss, it can actually bring forth new meanings, a deeper sense of self and greater connections.

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.

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives.

As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.
