When someone is grieving, it is sometimes difficult to know what to say. People feel awkward and often are reduced to well-meaning platitudes. There is no magic wand to take away the feelings experienced in grief but having a place of safety and honesty can be an important step on the road to restoration. Being able to talk, weep, get angry and feel the feelings is often present in the early stages. The purpose of grief work is not about forgetting remembering with love in spite of the wounds it leaves behind.

Losing someone is profound. Humans do not understand how to process loss. Our brain's do not know how process someone not being there. I can be there with you as you are looking to move forward with your life. Much of the work can involve processing emotion, remembering the important stories and lessons, and then choosing to move in a way that dignifies the loss.

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)

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.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Loss and grief are natural occurrences in life. However, they can be major intrusions in the quality of our life if we are too caught up in them. They can also interfere if we are so defended against them that they limit our ability to function or impair our daily interactions with others. Sometimes, what we have lost is not a person but a job or a situation in our life that has had great meaning for us, like our self-image. That can feel devastating. Just like losing a person, these events must be grieved if we are to be able to move on. Grieving doesn’t mean forgetting or being weak. It’s a sign of love and strength. Together, we can work through the grief so you can move on.

Losing a loved one, including a pet can cause severe pain and suffering. We need to grieve. Sometimes, we need permission or help to allow us to grieve. Therapy gives us the opportunity to share our experiences, remember our loved ones, express our emotions and allow us to let the loved one rest in peace.

Grief Counselor

Anita Langer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

The loss of a loved one is never easy to cope with, neither is the loss of intimate relationships, separations or life changes that cause us to experience grief. Remember, your grief/loss process is unique to you,give yourself the opportunity to share your feelings in a safe environment, where no one is pushing you to "move on" or "get over it."

Loss isn’t something we “get over.” It’s something we get through. And healing takes time. Relationships don’t end when someone you love dies, leaves home, or gives up. You continue to carry that person with you going forward. It’s important to be patient with the grief process, and to talk about your loss with someone who doesn’t try to rush you, or paint a smiley face on your loss. Let’s talk. Let’s celebrate what was good, what you will miss, what made that relationship unique. Shakespeare said it best when he suggested we “Give sorrow words.” Talking is healing when someone really understands.

Grieving is a complex process. There is no right or wrong, ideal or non-ideal formulaic process to grieving. Grief is personal and varies from person to person. Allowing oneself to grief, while not loosing perspective on life is a difficult process and often requires assistance. This is where I can be of help. I will listen and provide guidance during the process of grief.

Adam Sheck, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.
