Grief is a painful and frightening process and it's important to recognize that each individual experiences grief in a different way. There is no "right way" to grieve. Some people may show a lot of emotion and others may retreat into themselves and become quiet. Alternatively, some people may become physically ill, display anger, throw themselves into a project or work, or simply lay on the couch and feel unable to do anything. Psychotherapy helps in understanding the grief process and assists in actively working through it. It also helps in developing an awareness of the strong feelings you have and an understanding of how previous experiences and loss have an impact today.

Clients will learn how to integrate their loss and grief into their life going forward. I am compassionate in my approach and aim to restore a sense of purpose to continue living a meaningful and productive life while honoring the emotional and physical loss you are enduring.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

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.

First off, grief is hard. Whether it be losing a loved one, breaking up with a partner, or facing a lost of a dream or goal. We all grieve in different ways and our process and timing for grief and loss is unique to each person. In my 10 years of experience, I have sat with many clients who have grieved over the lost of different people and situations. Many of them have told me that just having a space to grieve without judgement provides them with a sense of relief and meaning. There are no quick solutions but what I can offer is a space to grieve and not to have to travel through those places alone. Hopefully that will give the space to heal in your own way.

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.

Sometimes when you lose a loved one, you need extra help. If you have experienced death of a friend, spouse or someone close to you, it can create severe emotional distress. When going through a major loss like this, it is easy to feel depressed, lonely and empty. Sometimes you may say to yourself, "Just snap out of it", but it does not seem to help. If you are struggling through the loss of a loved one and need someone to talk to that can help more than just a friend, please give me a call.

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.

Loss is part of life. Many times we can get overwhelmed by loss and start to shut down. Together we can help you to process the many complex feelings that you may experience during the grieving process and help you to learn how to accept and come to terms with loss in your life. It's important to reach out to others when you are hurting and not to isolate yourself. Finding the right therapist may the first step to beginning your healing and finding new and healthy ways to cope.

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 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.
