Grief is a psychological reaction to loss. Losses come in many different forms, for example loss of a loved one, being severely injured in an accident, being diagnosed with a debilitating illness, breakup of a marital relationship, postpartum depression and experiences such as grieving over the loss of a job. During the course of my career I headed up the Rehabilitation Psychology Services in one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. where I had the opportunity to work with grief reactions in people experiencing illnesses and injuries ranging from cancer to strokes to severe mental illness and spinal cord injury.

At Anchor Point, we describe ourselves as "a haven in a storm". Whenever we experience deep pain through a death, separation, loss, moving to a new location, etc. people often have a feeling of being oeverwhelmed and lost- much like being tossed about in a storm. We offer a listening ear, a place to honor the loss, and a compass to find your direction again. I have a spiritual background with an advanced degree in theology in addition to my education and training in couseling to help you come to answers that help you begin the healing process.

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

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.

I utilize an active model of grieving that helps the client have a map, so to speak, to be able to recognize where they are in the process of working through the loss. For example, the first step is to get through the denial and shock of what has happened to where one can accept its reality. Secondly, it's important to tell one's story in order to address a person's desire to regain what was lost. Third, is to address the despair and effects to one's life by coming to terms with what has happened, making meaning, identifying specific goals for therapy along with a treatment plan. Then finally, moving forward, withdrawing the energy once given to the trauma and redirecting it to find meaning.

Grief is a natural response to loss. A loss of any magnitude can trigger grief--from losing a loved one to losing a job, from ending a relationship to a significant financial loss. Grieving poorly can lead to unresolved and unprocessed pain that lasts a lifetime. On the other hand, grieving well is one of the most important skills in life and can lead to lasting healing and wholeness. Call Sarah for an appointment (770) 548-3034.

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

Although at some time we all experience loss and the grief that follows, there are few life experiences that are lonelier. Summer can gently walk with you through your experience of grief, and help you process your sadness and pain as you move through this difficult time. Although grief and depression are distinct, at times they feel the same, and sometimes loss can precipitate depression. If you feel that you are alone and stuck in your grief, it's probably time to ask for help.

The grief you experience following the loss of anyone close to you may cause the worst pain and highest stress of any life event. While each individual will experience grief in their own way, most are affected physically, emotionally and spiritually. Anxiety, guilt, anger, sadness and even shock are frequently experienced and often overwhelming emotions associated with grief. Grief counseling provides encouragement, comfort and support during one of life’s most difficult transitions. My approach will encourage you to progress at your own pace and in your own unique way. Grief counseling enables clients to accept their loss, resume normal functioning and move forward in peace.

I have been helping clients deal with loss for more than two decades. When you lose someone, or something, dear to you, the reality can be extremely painful and the great sadness you feel can be exacerbated with feelings you might not have expected: anger, shock, even guilt. Although you will likely grieve differently than others (we all grieve in our own way), it is important for your own emotional health and healing that you do go through it and working with a trained, experienced therapist like myself can ease and shorten the process. “Loss” is not only caused by death. It can be caused by divorce, loss of a job or career (retirement can cause emotional trauma), loss of youth and/or health, even relocating to a new town.
