It is difficult to deal with the loss of loved ones, especially when we feel we do not want to talk with family members about loss. My approach to address all of the Stage of Grief for successful management of grief and loss is effective and providing the needed relief of sadness and mourning. I will provide you with concrete exercises to help you deal with the loss of loved ones.

Loss and the resulting grief are a natural part of life. We never know what will bring the grieving process into our experience, whether it be the loss of a loved one, a job, a child, a way of life or feeling as if we are losing our sense of identity. My approach to grief is one rooted in compassion and helping each person find their own sense of self-compassion for the process of acceptance and moving forward with a renewed sense of spirit. We will always remember the loss but it is important to travel through it without allowing grief to hold our hearts down. I will help you mindfully walk through the sadness and anger that so often accompanies loss.

When grief doesn’t go away, seeking counseling for your bereavement may be helpful. It is normal to feel sadness, and the pain of losing a loved one never really goes away completely, but over time it should dissipate to where you can function normally. If you aren’t feeling better over time, or your grief is getting worse, it may be a sign that you should seek a therapist to help you work through the grieving process. You don't need to grieve alone. I can help you process your feelings, provide you life skills to deal with difficult moments of the grieving process, and ensure you heal in a healthy and positive way.

Relying on personal (death of spouse/other family members/close friends) as well as professional training and experience, Grief Therapy is one of my specialties, including therapy for those affected by a loved one's suicide. Your grief journey is unique, and each loss is different. Therapy can help you to successfully navigate your way through the grief process and to learn that much of what you feel is a normal, natural part of the painful and often difficult grief process.

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.

I believe empathic attunement to bereavement and grief is more than expressing "I'm sorry for your loss." As a clinician, it's about relationally connecting with a client, and communicating that it is okay to sit in difficult emotions together. The real healing and growth occur when there is space to weep, laugh, reflect, get angry, or even just know it is okay to sit in silence together. As a trained therapist, I know the steps to take in looking at the trauma of loss. However, anyone can know that by reading a book. I am here to be relationally and empathically connected in a safe space where we can drop down together to work through difficult emotions.

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.

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.

I have experience working with clients who are going through the grieving process in regard to the loss of a relationship. This pertains to a break up with a significant other, accepting that a parent is unable to fulfill an ideal role we have in our minds, etc. These losses can be just as traumatic as the death of a loved one, and most clients experience Kubler-Ross' Stages of Grief.

Grief Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Hickory Hills

Grieving is a normal human reaction to the loss we experience in our lives. Loss can be experienced through death of a loved one, a change in lifestyle, the end of a relationship, the decision to stop an addiction and even retirement. The process of grieving is a very unique process with no particular time amount or level of intensity easily predicted. The extremely private nature of experiencing grief can make it quite challenging and having a confidential, supportive and kind therapist to help you through that process can be very helpful. I can help you in your healing process to find new meaning to your life and discover a way to enjoy your memories without remorse.

Grief is not a disorder. You don't need to be cured. You need to be able to talk to someone. Every study shows that talking about your pain is crucial to letting go. If you have been suffering pain from a loss longer than you think is good for you, there may be something keeping you stuck. We can work that out. Experiencing your grief is not easy; it is necessary.
