My goal is to assist my clients with giving themselves "permission" to grieve. I often find that people struggle with this emotion, particularly when they are grieving the loss of a relationship, and not a death. While I caution clients that grieving doesn't have an expiration date, we can get "stuck" in the past and not know how to move past the pain of yesterday. I aim to teach clients healthy and productive ways to express and process their emotions, such as anger, sadness and fear, and find effective ways to help them let go so they can begin to create a new life on their terms.

Losing a loved one is emotionally and physically draining. Grief is experienced in many different ways and the healing process can take time. By working through memories and completing a grief trauma narrative individuals are able to process through their grief and enter acceptance into their healing phase. Grief counseling allows individuals to remember the positive times and visualize hope for the future.

Loss is painful whether it involves a person, pet, or even a part of ourselves such as health or a career. As human beings we are designed to attach strongly to the people we love. When attachment bonds are threatened we feel extremely strong emotions. Fortunately we are resilient beings and most often the thing that helps us most is having a safe and secure place to explore emotions and make sense of the loss. As we explore your grief we will work at your pace. Should the need arise we will explore any issues that might be complicate or interfere with the grieving process such as unfinished business or unresolved trauma.

Grief is a challenging transition, but it is often part of life, and is definitely something you can work through. I have firsthand experience, as I lost my dear mother rather suddenly several years ago to lung cancer. There are specific strategies, often through visualization, which we can work on to help enable your mind to focus on the positive memories, which you'll always have, and release the pain of the loss. Letting go of pain does not mean letting go of a loved one - you can release your pain, but not your love.

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 come in a number of different packages. Some familiar life transitions that involve grief include death, divorce, an empty nest, and job loss but this is by no means an exhaustive list. My approach to working with clients who are grieving is to initially create a safe space to hear their story and to normalize how they are feeling. Grief has no set path and is different for each person. The only thing that I know for sure is that the pain of loss is often unbearable and for this reason we often try to sidestep it. This may work for a while but eventually the feelings resurface in some way, either physical or emotional. Let's walk together as you make your way back.

I have worked with many clients who are dealing with grief and loss issues, including children and families who have lost a loved one. I have also worked with trauma survivors and their families and loved ones, including victims and others impacted by or involved in the Pulse nightclub shootings. I encourage people to understand that there is no "wrong" way to grieve and that it is a process that takes time.

Young people deal with grief and loss differently. I help them to process their grief, accept the loss/change and move forward in a healthy way. Their family can also be a part of the process through a collage, journal or letter writing to/about the loss. Some children find peace in holding onto a momento/token of a loved one. In therapy we find the best way for them to deal with the loss and grief.

Unfortunately it is a myth that, “time heals all wounds.” It does not. However, when we express our grief it is often referred to as the healing emotion. It is important to share the stories of grief and loss in a safe place so that we can heal. I’ve counseled individuals and led groups as large as 20 people for those seeking to overcome the loss of a loved one.
