Grief is a normal reaction to any type of loss. The therapeutic objective is to help bereaved individuals recover from the emotional pain caused by the loss. Therapy goals consist of: recovery from the loss to help the client feel better, choosing a healthier approach to grieving, finding new meaning for living, reducing fears and unhealthy ways for dealing with the loss, and having the ability to enjoy memories and connecting to the deceased rather than resorting to isolation/depression. My therapeutic approach consists of educating about the stages of loss, working on issues complicating the grief process, validating emotions and teaching better coping mechanisms to handle the loss.

I cannot make your grief disappear, though I sure wish I could. But I can help you learn to live with your loss, so that day by day you can begin to rebuild, move forward, and of course, honor what you have lost. Many clients come to me with a goal of making the grief go away; they want to fast forward to where they don't feel the pain anymore. Having worked with trauma survivors for so long (and your loss is traumatic for you) I know this approach does not work. Those emotions just get buried and they always come back. In therapy you will learn how to create a safe space to grieve without feeling overwhelmed. You will learn how to find new meaning from your experiences and find peace.

Grief & Loss is a part of every human beings' life. Grief & Loss Therapy is an intrinsic part of moving forward. The benefits of Grief & Loss Therapy is that it allows people to plunge forward in their lives. Tragedy is a part of human existence, but how and what we do with it, determines who we are. I work with people to process & metabolize grief, to leave what they don't want behind, and to keep with them that which benefits, nourishes, and enhances their life!

Loss and grief are an inevitable part of life. The loss of a loved one, friend, job or life-stye may result in painful experience. Talking through the feelings of shock, disbelief, sadness, anger, and guilt can be a tremendous help at these times. It can hasten your progress toward acceptance of the loss and the new world of possibility that awaits you. An experienced therapist of 32 years, I have guided many people through this journey and have seen the wonderful benefits of a safe, caring and encouraging relationship during times like these.

At some point, everyone experiences the grief and loss of something or someone valuable in life. The key is knowing how to grieve one's loss. Most people don't know how to grieve and our culture does not allow for it. Entering therapy after a loss of a job, relationship, or a loved one can help heal the wounds and help the individual move on with life.

Grief and loss come in many forms and alternate to what you may read elsewhere online, the healing process is not linear nor is it fixed to a set period of time. Grief includes the death of a loved one or even the loss of something intangible - a job, a relationship, a belief. I work with individuals and couples to mourn these losses in their own time and in their own way.

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 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.

Grief is a normal response to loss, and all of us experience it. Sometimes it is harder, and we can feel stuck in our pain, unable to begin the healing process. If that is your experience, or if you simply need some support during your grieving, counseling can help a great deal. I use a variety of methods that can be helpful, ranging from supportive work to healing traumas that may have accompanied the loss you have experienced. Everyone's situation is different, so my approach is different for each person. Please call if you would like to explore whether therapy might help at this time.

When we try to run away from grief, we may be able to push it down temporarily, however there becomes a time for “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Grief layers with loss. So when we attempt to run away from the grief we are actually intensifying our pain and we tend to deaden a part of us in the process. When we delay grief, which is common to many individuals, we narrow our options in life. We begin to survive rather than fully live. We must complete our psychological business with the past before we can move on and form new attachments and live life fully. Accepting losses means facing the real or the threatened losses of attachment, safety, childhood innocence and spontaneity, trust. We do not recognize the ability to play, to make...(view profile to read more)
