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.

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....

Grief counseling applies to many types of loss, not just death. Counseling for loss can be an opportunity to memorialize the person, relationship, or experience you lost. Counseling should include the joy and laughter of the loss as well as the sadness and pain. Uncomplicated grief counseling can be short-term, 1-6 sessions, and is covered by insurance in many cases.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. A person’s reaction depends on the type of loss, their personality, previous losses, and the type of support that is available. Grief normally gets easier with time though...(view profile to read more)

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.

The key areas of grief and loss is learning to create what is known as a "new normal". This new normal can be created after a death, loss of job or even the loss of a relationship like divorce. Being able to understand the grief steps and what to expect brings hope to individuals and families who may have just had what they once new as normal completely change sometimes overnight.

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.

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.

The death of a loved one is a natural occurrence in an individual’s lifetime, but sometimes death is sudden and unexpected and can turn our world upside down. People may have difficulty processing their emotions after such an event, and as a result, their ability to function may be impacted as well. This may also be the case after dissolution of a marriage or other meaningful relationships, a health crisis resulting in declining abilities or causing disability, loss of employment, and a host of other circumstances in life that induce overwhelming feelings of grief/loss. Karen will support such an individual as they process their feelings associated with the grief/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.

"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.

COVID-19 Stress is inescapable. Grief is the natural response to the loss we experience. Quite often our losses occur “too early” or are “too severe” or are “too many” at once to process healthily. Loss that seems impossible to “get over” along with more loss close behind can become a deep spiral downward. This feels overwhelming & reactions can begin to have a life of their own. My therapeutic care, coupled with my own personal understanding through loss, I assist clients in safe & timely ways to face these sometimes debilitating experiences. Using trauma reduction therapies (EMDR and RRT) clients are helped to gain breathing room and a healthy perspective usually within 1 to 3 sessions.

Losing a loved one is probably one of the most difficult challenges we can endure. Our entire perspective on life can change in an instant. Your greif experience is unique because only you know the nuances of your relationship to the person you lost.

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 provide loving support and understanding of the grief process while carefully encouraging you to move forward when ready to see and understand the new landscape you are now living.

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
