We all experience a deep feeling of grief or loss at least once in our lives whether it is unexpected or suddenly. Grief isn't just secluded to the loss of a person but can also include a pet, home, divorce, or anything else you have felt a deep attachment to. Grief is a multi-faceted feeling that manifests itself differently in everyone. I have grieved and I believe I can help you with simply understanding and relating with how you're feeling.

Grief & loss is specific to every individual and can take its own course and time frame. Knowing whether grief has crossed a line and is becoming dysfunctional or developing into clinical depression, takes a skilled diagnostician familiar with treating similar individuals. For over 15 years, our staff at The Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center has treated individuals suffering with grief and loss, often in conjunction with family therapy services. This insures that the individual struggling has the support needed not only in the therapeutic setting but also at home.

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.

"As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive." Grief and loss comes in all forms - from job loss to death of a loved one. Emotional based therapy will help you cope with the loss and adjust to a "new normal". I'll help you explore the loss, your grieving process, and help you find closure.

Grief. If you're looking here, I am guessing you are going through something very tough. I'm so sorry for your loss. Grief is like waves of the ocean, sometimes big, sometimes small and many times unexpected like in the chip aisle at the grocery store. I have worked with many types of grief including divorce, cancer diagnosis, sexual abuse survivor, and several others. Many times friends, family, or a pastor are just the ticket to help a healing heart. Other times it is helpful to have a professional walk with you through these losses, feel more normal about your feelings, and come to gradual healing through just being together. Reach out today, you don't have to be alone!

Are you struggling with the loss of a loved one? Even a job loss or the loss of a relationship such as divorce can bring on feelings of grief. Are you experiencing feelings of anger, guilt, sadness and confusion? It may seem impossible to return to "normal" life. You may feel unprepared to deal with what is happening around you. Unfortunately, we will all experience grief in our lifetime. There is no "correct" way to express grief, but it can be softened and even resolved with kind and compassionate care. For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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.

Grief and loss is a very personal experience . Losing soneone really hurts and coping with the loss can be a very difficult process. Sometimes friends and or family members do not know what to say or do. Having a place where one can safely express thier feelings and thoughts freely can be helpful. Grieving is a process and a very personal one in nature.

Everyone experiences traumatic and/or painful losses within their lifetime. There are many types of loss such as death of a family member or friend, separation or divorce, loss of a job, or children leaving home. Grief is the most common response to loss. It is a natural, necessary reaction to a significant change or loss in our lives. Grief can make you more susceptible to illness, cause fatigue, insomnia, weight loss, higher blood pressure and heart rates. Grieving people commonly experience a wide range of emotions and reactions. The time it takes each person to heal varies.

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....

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.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Grief is profound, affecting every area of life. Each person grieving is in uncharted territory, because the pain can be immense, and the process of grief is unique like one's fingerprint. There are commonalities and beacons to chart your progress, but moving through anger, fear, and sadness is a solo act. The questions can be overwhelming. I hope to be a support as you move to a new normal, understanding that life cannot be the same as it once was. We believe in finding ways to honor your losses, not just move on.

Bereavement and grief are difficult reactions people experience after loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger, and deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on background, beliefs, relationships, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social. Symptoms can include: Crying and sighing, headaches, appetite change, sleep issues, weakness, fatigue, sadness, yearning, worry, anger, frustration, guilt, isolation, detachment from others. Every grieving experience is different. You should not have to go through this alone. Please contact us for support!

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.

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.

Losing a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences in life. Losing abilities or functioning in chronic pain is a loss of another kind, but a loss nevertheless. Getting past the numbness and overwhelming pain is a uniquely personal process with a very individual timeline.

I have counseled people experiencing many forms of grief and loss. I counsel grieving people with an empathetic, person-centered approach. I don't try to find 'quick answers' to somehow 'fix' people who are grieving. Since everyone grieves in different ways and for different lengths of time, I create a kind of space for people to truly grieve on their terms so that true, lasting healing takes place.
