Grief and loss is unfortunately something that we must all go through. It is very painful to lose a loved one. However, as difficult as it is, grief can help us grow as people. Getting through the grief process well means that you can gain a deeper understanding about life and find more empathy toward others. My approach toward working with grief and loss is gentle and compassionate. I seek to help you work through the sadness and pain and get back to living again and finding new meaning in your life.

Grief and loss are deep and ongoing emotional processes. There are commonalities that do exist for many of us such as periods of loneliness, despair, and just plain depression. But for each individual the experience of grief and loss are unique. Helping clients learn to honor their own process, validate it, and give their selves the space and time to express their grief and loss is what I do. Even though our grief and loss will usually be with us for our lifetime, we can learn to live with our sadness and pain and in our own time, still live a healthy, wonderful and thriving life.

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 real and a process we go through. There are stages and each comes with its unique emotions and thoughts. I, personally, have experienced loss in a variety of ways and worked with many who have experienced many different kinds of loss. I meet people where they are at the time we get together. I do not pressure people to move, but sit with them and empathize. There is grace and no expectations. However, the goal is to progress through the stages and live life in the present. We don't forget the loss, but it no longer is reeking havoc in our daily experiences.

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.

Grieving is a natural and necessary response to a loss. When we lose a loved one we must go through the process of grieving to heal from that loss and to be able to fully engage in life again. Sometimes the loss we experience does not come in the form of losing a person, but of losing a job, a career, a relationship, or a dream, for example. Whatever the type of loss we experience, we need to find ways of adjusting to it. Therapy can help people to process their feelings and navigate the waters of grief and loss, and assist them with rebuilding their lives.

Grief is the body and spirit's response to significant loss. Grief is involuntary and necessary. Grief is natural and the only way to heal the body and spirit is to go through it. Suppressing, denying, minimizing and avoiding the process that is grief will be rejected by the body and spirit. Grief is not a linear process and is unique to each person. I help by teaching ways to cope that will reduce the negative symptoms of grief, such as the difficulty with focus, concentration and memory, fatigue, and sadness, while respecting and honoring your 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.

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.

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole again.
