There are multiple forms of loss, ranging from lost friendship to to the loss of a loved one, which could be a pet or a person. I would encourage open communication about feelings and strongly believe that an individual's feelings should not be judged or criticized. I would also encourage the individual to allow sufficient time to recover from their loss; there is no "right" amount of time to process a loss.

Athough grief is often intense and may feel like depression, it normally eases over time. When you become stuck in deep sadness, regret, and an inability to move on or when there was a trauma associated with the death, I can help you resolve the grief and find peace. I use gentle compassionate strategies to support your acceptance and return to a more satisfying life. You will learn to let go, to resolve regrets, and to enjoy life again.

Grief creates shifts in our lives that can leave us temporarily feeling alone, lost and unsteady. Studies show that individuals that seek support during this difficult season, can actually shorten the grief period, and are less likely to experience "complicated grief". It would be my honor to journey with you during this difficult season. I look forward to hearing from you.

Healing in the grief process looks different for everyone and I can provide a space for you to feel and share what you need to. I will provide support and empathetic listening to remind you that you are not alone during this difficult time. We can also identify other ways to connect with others and feel supported within your friends and family as well. Although nothing can fix a loss, therapy can be a powerful tool in the process to experience some relief and begin to heal.

When grieving we can experience a wide range of emotions. "Giving language" to these emotions - through speaking or writing - helps us make sense of our feelings and brings relief from the heaviness of grief. You will receive non-judgmental support and direction as you mourn your loss or losses. It is possible to find a new way to be - not to leave behind what you had, but to bring the best of your past into your future. A joyful life and a meaningful life can still be yours. Grief affects us physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. Grief counseling can help restore your body, mind and spirit. You can sleep better, feel less anxiety and fear and have more hope for your future

Grief Counselor

David Johnson, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Grief and loss is one of my strength areas where I have lots of experience and expertise. Emphasis will be placed on the emotional component and reframing of the loss so that you can move on and return to full functional living engaging in life again. The work of Katherin Kubler-Ross will be utilized as a framework of the grief and loss process recognizing specific steps that one goes through as the loss is resolved. Learning how to" let go" becomes essential in order for new life to be obtained. Done properly, the individual comes out more resilient and having better coping skills to life a fulfilling life. I would be honored to help you go through "the process" and find new life.

You are hurting. Grief is physical, it's intense, and it's non-stop. Often, it is difficult for partner's to understand the immense pain that their grieving partner is going through. They want to be there to support and comfort their partner, but they don't know where to start or what to do. This confusion can be challenging to navigate and has the potential to make things worse. I use research proven methods to help couples work through grief together. You don't have to experience the pain alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you both how to make that work.

We have developed a model of grief and loss for adults and children. Dr. Kalyani Gopal has written a work book particularly for children. Initial intake focuses on the acute and chronic nature of the condition. The severity of the condition is determined by administering questionnaires and inventories. After carrying out a risk assessment, patient's need for medication is determined and, if needed, appropriate referral is made. We carefully monitor the patient condition. We use supportive and cognitive-behavioral approaches and at times eclectic method to achieve the desired goals.
