Grief counseling can help you, after the death of a loved one, reorient yourself in how you relate to the deceased, yourself, and your outside world. It includes facing the reality of this loss, finding ways to express and channel your pain, and then reconstruct your attachment from one in the physical realm to one of more symbolic interaction. Other ways you can be helped include developing a new sense of identity-revamping your way of being in the presence of your loved one and now without it. Along with this, I will help you articulate your losses, find healthy ways to compensate for them, and discover other avenues in which to make an emotional investment.

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.

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 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.

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

There are many different kinds of losses: loss of a loved one through death, loss of a loved one for some other reason, loss of a spouse due to divorce or separation, loss of a job, loss of a home, loss of financial resources, loss of health, loss of a pet, etc. The loss of hopes and dreams can be devastating. When these feelings of grief are put aside without being addressed, then the unresolved grief can affect you in unexpected ways. However, by allowing yourself to grieve and to work through these losses with a caring counselor, then you can come to a place of healing and hope again.

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.

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.
