Recovery from loss of a loved one - human or animal - can be a very up and down road. Sadness can linger and even turn into depression. If you are struggling to make sense of a loss or to regain your equilibrium and life, talking to a therapist can be of great benefit. Whether your loss was recent or years ago, you can achieve a sense of closure and peace.

Grief can take many forms with one of them being grieving a relationship. One of the ways Amy helps her clients is to work on forgiving themselves for what feels like a weakness and to uncover their hidden strength. The emotional and physical symptoms of grief after a breakup can be so intense that the body and psyche can overwhelm the logical brain to create a way of functioning that appears necessary for survival, even though it might be self-destructive.

Everyone has experienced loss, from the death of a loved one to the loss of a job; from a deeply broken relationship to the diagnosis of a life-altering illness. Facing the grief that comes with each loss is difficult but incredibly important to healing and restoration. I seek to create an environment where you feel safe to explore your grief and find healing at your own pace.

"Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted." The pain of losing someone never quite fully goes away, but my hope is that you will benefit from being comforted as you grieve the loss of someone close to you. Grief has an important place in life and as we walk through this difficult time together you'll begin to make sense of the pain that may be overwhelming you. However, you may also learn some important truths about life, purpose and meaning.

You've heard "time heals all wounds", but that doesn't help you much now. You've told yourself to "get over it", but you can't. Trite phrases seldom help the depression and anxiety that accompanies significant grief and loss. You don't have to walk this painful journey alone. I have helped many persons work through the loss of a loved one(s) and the losses of material possessions, jobs, identity and life changes, painful parenting, divorce an other, broken relationships. Call, and let me help you, as well. More info on grief and loss may be found at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.
