When grief and loss have gone on much longer than is typical, it often indicates there is some unacknowledged idea or feeling that has been preventing the person from grieving fully and they thus feel stuck. Though hard to bear, grief and loss are a natural and necessary part of life. Given a space in which to share one's pains and doubts, a client can go through his or her emotions and begin the healing process. This often results in greater understanding and a sense of relief.

Loss is inescapable in life. Grief is the natural response to the loss we experience. Quite often our losses occur “too early” or are “too severe” or are “too many” at once to process healthily. Loss that seems impossible to “get over” along with more loss close behind can become a deep spiral downward. This feels overwhelming & reactions can begin to have a life of their own. My therapeutic care, coupled with my own personal understanding through loss, I assist clients in safe & timely ways to face these sometimes debilitating experiences. Using trauma reduction therapies (EMDR and RRT) clients are helped to gain breathing room and a healthy perspective usually within 1 to 3 sessions.

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 doesn't have to just be because the loss of a person. People can experience grief due to virtually any loss. The loss of a relationship, the loss of employment, or the loss of a life role. I can help someone learn about the grief process and help learn how to grief in a healthy way. People can also suffer from complex grief that can at times significantly interfere with how they function in life.

So often it feels as if many people in your life are signaling to you in some way that you should "hurry up and get over it," whatever your loss may be. The truth is that grieving is a process unique to each of us. I would like to provide you the time and space you need to explore the losses you have endured -- in your time and in your own unique way.

My approach to grief is to get through it, one must embrace it. Grief is not an event that at a particular time it will be just stop. Grief is like an ocean with waves of despair to utter calmness depending where their pendulum of grief is swinging. Clients will learn coping skills to deal with the symptoms the person is experiencing in their loss. The client will learn that although going thru the grief is slower and usually more painful, when he/she get to the other side, their grief does not have to haunt them in their future.

We often think only of death of a loved one. But loss and grief can come from loss of finances, positions, relationships, status, friendships, physical well being, and pets. One of my grad school professors was terminally ill. She devoted her attention to teaching us students about loss, death, and dying. She became a renowned lecturer on the topic and collaborated with Dr. Kubler-Ross, one of the pioneer researchers on the topic. The early training I received has been utilized and built upon by me throughout my career. I offer compassion and guidance helping individuals normalize the feelings and emotions that may at times feel unreal.

Grieving the loss of anything in life, whether it be a loved one, a career, one's identity, spirituality, addictions and more can be very confusing and lonely. In grief counseling, I provide a compassionate presence to help you work through and gain strength while walking through all the stages of grief you may experience. I understand that grief is not limited to physical loss, but we most grieve expectations, dreams, relationships and so on. I've had the honor of speaking at the University of Tampa at their Remembrance Ceremony for the last several years. Here we've honored those we've lost and educated students on ways to cope in a healthy way

Grief and loss is always difficult and people often don't know where to turn to. When working with clients with these issues, I make sure I listen empathetically. Often times what needed most is a listening ear. I make suggestions to help clients through the grieving process which is usually some gradual behavioral steps to get back into the flow of life. We sometimes will have a ceremony to honor the loss, and I encourage clients to turn to whatever their spiritual beliefs might be for support.

One of the most painful things a person can experience is the death of a loved one. There is no right or wrong way to grieve - everyone grieves in their own way. Grief bring about a complexity of emotions - anger, sadness, relief, guilt, and denial. In my practice, I provide a safe, comforting place for my clients to process their feelings of loss and learn coping skills to help them heal.
