Dealing with grief is about realizing the impact someone has had on your life and how you can use this experience to honor them. When people heal from the sadness they reach a place of newness. There really aren't five stages of grief as we once thought but there is a process with alternating phases. Each person has their own "theory" about grief and once they discover what it is, they are better able to accept and move through the process.

I like to help the person work through grief and loss by helping them connect with their sorrow and bring loving closure to those relationships. This may include role playing and also narrative writing allowing them to express their feelings, memories, regrets, etc. Often we may create an experience where they can say goodbye and begin to let go and move on.

The death or loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult events that you ever have to face. Sometimes therapy is needed to help you learn to cope with the thoughts and feelings that you are dealing with. If after a period of time, you have difficulty completing your every day activities and coping with life, it may be beneficial to meet with a professional. You may be "stuck" in one of the stages of the normal grieving process.

Loss is something that can shake anyone to their core. Everyone experiences loss differently and there is no one way to grieve. My goal with working with clients dealing with grief and loss issues is to help them process the pain of the loss while still being able to access the love and memory of the departed. I also have experience treating any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that are associated with the loss.

Processing a loss or trauma occurs in many ways, starting with talking. Losses by death of family and friends are likely our greatest losses in life. Maybe you didn't consider retirement, moving away, a serious heath diagnosis, or the end of a longterm friendship as a loss. Loss is actually uncontrollable change. Talking about how you are feeling is how you begin to let go. Time does not really heal all wounds. It is what you do with time that heals the wound.

I work with people who have been injured, diagnosed with serious illness, and who have lost loved ones. I also work with the person's familiy. While no therapist can provide absolute relief in such situations, I provide an empathic and supportive approach to help people understand the road ahead and to move forward no matter how difficult the circumstances.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

You may feel like no amount of talking could possibly help you overcome the sadness you feel right now. What you may not realize is that therapy can be incredibly effective in helping you manage the difficult and complicated feelings commonly accompanying the loss of a loved one. Everything you are feeling is normal! In therapy, you'll learn tools to help manage intensely painful emotions while honoring the memory of your loved one(s). While therapy cannot entirely take the pain away, it can certainly take the edge off so you can begin to function again. With the help of therapy, you'll begin to experience more and more periods of relief and in time, even begin to feel joy again.

We generally think of grief and loss in relation to the death of people we have been close with, such as family, friends, coworkers and others with whom we have been close. While death is certainly the worst kind of loss we are called upon to face and grieve over, there are other meaningful losses we must endure and find a way to grieve toward resolution and inner peace. Such losses as the breakup of significant relationships, through divorce or separation from any loved one certainly call for grieving. Loss of one’s job can amount to a meaningful loss that requires grieving to go on with a new and constructive adjustment. The loss of one’s health can also present serious challenges to keepin....
