Losing a loved one (human or animal) can make us question our mortality and the meaning in our own life. Everyone has a unique way of grieving, yet we are often expected to grieve in culturally predefined ways. I can help and encourage you to create your own personal way of working through the acceptance of the loss, at whatever timeline feels appropriate to you. I can provide you with a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to mourn. As you reflect on the loss, I will be with you to remember the joyous times with your loved one as well. I can guide you with different exercises, helping you on your way toward recovery.

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.

I lost my father suddenly and unexpectedly a few years ago and at the time it didn't feel like something I could get through. Surviving my grief and moving through it was incredibly difficult but I've learned a lot about grief and about myself in the process. As a result of my experience I understand what it's like to lose someone so close to you. A lot of times with grief just knowing you're not alone and your experiences are valid makes it survivable. As a result of my journey, I'm able to support others going through grief at a deeper level and share what I've learned that helped me survive and thrive following a difficult loss.

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.

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.

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 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.

How we grieve depends deeply upon our own personal experiences and pain. I work to assist each individual to grasp the depth and poignancy of this ended relationship and give them the tools that they need to live without this person/creature. Once this is completed, I help them to embrace the qualities that they can make part of their own legacy.

We may all experience the grief and loss of a loved one, a pet, a home, a sense of belonging, a career, finances or stature in life. There needs to be a time to grieve, as well as a time to be cared for and held. As co-therapists in the room together, we nurture, we provide safety, and we offer perspectives. We work on the tools couples need to get the support they deserve from each other. We believe it is essential to explore shutting down and isolating and the paths to getting back to each other. We help build safe structures to support holding the memories, the loneliness, the complexity and the growth.

The loss of a family member or a close friend can be a traumatic event. It's common to have a mixture of feelings at this time as well as difficulty picturing how our life can go on without our loved one. In therapy it can be helpful to reminisce about our experiences with them and articulate the feelings we have, no matter what the feelings or experiences are.

Among the benefits of grief counseling are: normalizing (grief feels strange but it is universal); making meaning (coming to terms with our mortality); and the opportunity to express feelings, safely and in full, about the person who has died. When a client suffers a loss during or prior to treatment, I communicate the message that each of us is entitled to a grief process of our own, with its own tempo, mood, and meaning, all of which fluctuate, often in complex ways. The support of an empathic person can help you walk the painful path that grief puts before you, a path which leads out of grief and back to life.

As a hosptial chaplain and licensed therapist, I have years of experience working with people who are experiencing the loss of someone they loved who has died. When someone we love dies, we are never prepared for this. It is like losing an arm, how do you cope when your arm is gone? As a grief therapist, you will benefit from my years of experience and caring support helping you to grieve your loss. Counseling will help you to properly say goodbye and process the pain and feelings of anger, depression, and acceptance. You also will benefit from learning new ways to cope and adjust so that you do not remain stuck in loneliness.

Dealing with Grief is an important part of living well. Loss is a part of life, so we all have to find ways to deal with it. Sometimes the grief we feel results in normal ups and downs that we can manage on our own. But sometimes the grief gets so painful that we need the help of a trained therapist to help us find our way out of it. If your grief is lasting too long, or your sadness is going too deep don't try to go through this on your own. We have trained professionals who can come along side of you and help.

It can be very difficult to lose someone close to you or experience a significant loss. It's not just about the loss, it's about the loss of what could have been in the future as well. You may be experiencing an intense range of emotions coming and going in waves. It can impact your ability to sleep, eat, make decisions, and impact your ability to function overall in your day-to-day life. People experience grief differently and understanding common reactions, common supports and coping tools can help with the grieving process.

As a Clinical Psychologist in the second half of life, I know about grief and loss from my own personal experience as well as professionally over the past 25 years. Grief and loss aren't always about death. It can also be loss of a relationship, loss of a career, loss of health, loss of functioning because of injury, disease or aging or loss of self-identity. I explore all of this with you compassionately, empathically and allow you to feel and release whatever is necessary in your own time, to move forward in your life, in your own way.

I have lost many loved ones and can ID the stages very quickly to help. I use various methods depending on the person. I believe groups are good for grief and encourage support networks. Talking to a Therapist at this time helps a great deal to minimize the grief. I believe that love never dies and one should be able to remember those with love and compassion. Time helps! Multiple losses are the hardest to deal with and need a counselor to start the healing process. Come in and talk! I have a protocol which is meaningful to anyone that has lost a loved one that works.

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.

Have you lost a loved one? Had a divorce? Laid off from your job? There are many ways we experience loss, and it often hampers the way you live life. Come learn how to process and move on--in a healthy, natural way that honors your loss . . . and honors you. At CCRG, you will learn why you're feeling this way, and often, you'll learn WHAT you're feeling--it's sometimes confusing to identify just what's going on because you may have never felt these things before. We understand, and we want to help you along.
