There are many forms of loss that can significantly impact a person's life (i.e. losing a job, friendship, home, death of a loved one, giving up a destructive habit or addiction). The pain that accompanies grief and loss can be so overwhelming that it takes all of our will power just to get through the day. Depending on the nature of the loss, it can feel like purpose and passion for living are missing. I assist clients in a 3 step process which involves acceptance of the loss, finding meaning to the pain they are experiencing, and developing goals to help the client continue productively on their life journey.

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.

Sooner or later you will lose someone you love or something that is important to you. It happens to all of us and it’s easy to become overwhelmed and lose perspective in such times. There is a process that guides you through grief and brings you to the other side whole. I offer to guide you through the process at your pace and in your way so you will have your time to grieve with comfort and perspective and emerge stronger having endured the experience.

Loss happens and that pain can feel unbearable. From birth we form attachments-homes, jobs, friends, families-that can end. I help clients express, not "stuff", feelings, learn "aspects" of normal grieving-anger and shock are expectable, guilt is likely inappropriate and puts us at risk of getting "stuck", process means we don't do one "stage", finish with it, and move on to the next. Healing from loss is a very individual experience.

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 you suffer the loss of a loved one, you certainly will experience great sorrow. But it is also possible that you may experience symptoms similar to clinical depression. It is normal for these symptoms to last for days. But if they continue at a significant level for a week or more, you may need extra support. Grief counseling can be of benefit. I will help you move through the grief process in a constructive and purposeful way. We will engage you in specific interventions that honor your loss, and help you find the meaning in the painful reality you experience. Taking time for purposeful grieving, you learn to re-engage in your normal life, minimizing the risk of clinical depression.

Grief is a very real and painful experience with many dimensions, and it has no time limit. Well-meaning loved ones may not understand the extent of your grief and pain. Mourning is a process that is unique and personal. Not everyone grieves in the same way nor does everyone require the same amount of time to work through their grief. Grief can be complicated by the length of the relationship with the person who died, the nature of that relationship, any traumatic components to the loss, multiple losses, and the strength of your remaining support system. If your grief feels overwhelming or your depression lasting, contact me for the support you need to heal and find your way forward.

Grief and loss are a part of life yet can feel overwhelming! If you are suffering from illness, the death of a loved one, loss of a job or relationship, or going through life transitions, therapy can assist in your healing. Grief can be isolating. Individuals, couples, and families can learn to stay connected rather than be torn apart during these difficult times. Learning to cope with your situation in an accepting atmosphere can help you develop a renewed sense of hope and renewed connection, first to yourself and then to significant others. You do not need to go through your pain alone!

Grieving cannot be done alone. All you can do by yourself is be sad and alone. This is not healing. Grieving is a process that has a beginning and an end and must include one other person who is understanding and compassionate. If you are tired of feeling like no one understands your loss on an emotional level, then you may wish to consider a visit with Thomas.
