Loss is an inevitable part of life and one of the toughest. Therapy can be extremely helpful and I have assisted many people through their losses. Some of the most common losses have included death of a family member or partner, death of a pet, loss of a relationship. While working with my clients as they experience their loss, I attempt to hone in on the uniqueness of the relationship and honor the meaning of it.

Losing a loved one, whether through unexpected or anticipated circumstances, is always traumatic and can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Although grieving is a natural human reaction to a loss it can be overwhelming. In therapy I provide a safe place were we can process those feelings together and explore which meaning the loss you experienced will receive in your life.

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.

Experiences of grief for someone important but not central to one's life can move towards healing as feelings are freely expressed and the importance of the relationship is explored. More acute grief for the loss of someone central to one's life involves a more extended process of expressing the many different emotions that emerge, sometimes using art supplies to express feelings not ready for words. Reflection on the meaning this person had in your life and the the many losses involved can eventually lead to thoughts about how one can go on, using the wisdom gleaned from the grief process. A major grief never goes away entirely but the precious memories are sustaining.

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In coping and adjusting to an environment, where the person is no longer around or has deceased, it is a necessary step towards acceptance. I work with the bereaved to start the acceptance, the healing, preserving the memories and begin rebuilding a new environment with hope for the future. You will get assisted in a nurturing way to help you find the strength to establish new routines or adapt previous ones, that worked well. You will slowly work on the acceptance that even though the physical presence of the departed may be missing, you can continue to relate to them through rituals, feelings and memories. You will also work on the reason why this person choose to come into your life.

Grief is a natural response to loss and it takes many forms. Everyone grieves differently and contrary to popular belief, there is no set amount of time grief is "supposed to last." I acknowledge a client's unique response to grief in a sensitive and compassionate way while letting him/her know that his/her response is normal. I help clients recognize and understand the wide range of feelings that come with loss. I assist clients in developing healthy coping strategies based on their innate strengths.

I will help you meet grief with compassion. Rather than repeat unkind advice that you "move on," I will strive to help you find connection, meaning, and hope. If the circumstances of your loss were at all traumatic, I will help you make peace with painful memories. Times of loss can produce great gains in strength and love. I will help you build a life that honors your loved one and all they have meant to you.

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.

Grief and loss are never easy, but I can help and support you through the process with the empathy and care you deserve. You'll have a safe place to express and explore the wide variety of emotions that come with loss. Depending on your preferences, we can integrate art, writing, ritual, prayer, and other processes that will ease your pain, bring meaning, and move you forward in your life. I can help with loss of a loved one, a marriage, a career, a path not taken, your health, your youth, or any other experience of loss. I am an animal lover and have a particular interest in helping people who have lost a pet.

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

Grief, if left blocked, can be a significant drain on our energy. It is possible (and common) to move at such a fast pace through life that we are completely unaware of unprocessed feelings. When sadness, loss, and regret are identified, expressed, and released we reclaim our vitality and improve self-esteem. Another benefit of this process is improvement in our relationships. I provide a safe, comfortable environment to explore these issues.

Grief Counselor

Psychologist

Grief and loss issues can stem from recent losses, or ones from decades past. They can feel overwhelming to deal with because of the intensity of emotion. However, having a safe environment to work through these issues at a pace that you are comfortable with is the best way to begin that journey. With grief, as with so many other things in life, the only way around the feelings are through them. I have experience working with individual and leading grief groups. I understand how grief manifests differently for different people, and will help you on your journey of healing. Please call me to discuss further and to determine if you'd like to schedule an appointment.
