Grief is a deeply painful process in the human experience of loss, and one that touches everyone at one time or another. However, the commonality of loss and subsequent grief must never be understood as suggesting that everyone's grief is the same. It is not. Every person's movement through the grief process is totally unique, as is the duration of the grief process and the way that grief must be expressed. My approach to grief work in psychotherapy is to provide a safe place for remembering; a safe place to reflect and to express the emotion, (if there is any), that sometimes accompanies remembering. In this way, the required healing can be accomplished.

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....

Grief and loss are life's equalizer — it touches everybody. Grief is not reserved for bereavement only; all types of loss can trigger our grief responses. When using suppression to deal with our grief, we lose parts of our authentic self. Unprocessed, grief and loss will inevitably complicate our lives and relationships. The good news is: no matter how long ago these pains have lodged in our heart, they can be resolved through personal therapy. Addressing these wounds may take courage, but it will be the best gift you can give to yourself. You deserve to heal your wounds and start anew in your personal journey so that you can fill your heart with light, love, gratitude, & laughter.

Times of grief are some of the most painful experiences we have as human beings. But these times are also wonderful in the sense that this is part of our humanity - it's painful because of our ability and capacity to love. With love comes loss - and with loss comes great emotional pain. But the grief journey can also be a time of amazing reflection, growth, and renewal. Sometimes grief is fresh and sometimes grief is deep-seated from events long past. Either way, learning to not fear your grief but to be able to sit with it and use it as a tool to transform yourself is a powerful benefit of this great emotional pain.

Lose can be painful. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about never arrives in our lives at a good time. During our periods of loss we may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness each of us experience may never end. Anger, anxiety or depression may be overwhelming. These reactions to a significant loss are normal. As your counselor, we will journey with you during this time of grief. We will not tell you the right or wrong way to grieve, but we can guide you with healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Rather than tolerating your loss we will assist you in accepting the loss. As you k....

While everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time, losing a loved one feels devastating. Furthermore, grief can be complicated by other conditions such as depression and level of dependence on the departed. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way to manage grief symptoms and cope with stressors from the loss. When you see me for grief & loss therapy, we will discuss how the grief is impacting your life and create a plan together to accelerate the healing process without losing any healthy emotional connections with the deceased. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

Your greif experience is unique because only you know the nuances of your relationship to the person you lost.

I'd be honored to walk with you through this painful time as you explore your thoughts and feelings and learn to embrace life without your loved one.

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.

"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.

Personal loss is a painful process and requires time to heal. Having a healthy means to work through grief is important. In my counseling experience I have had the opportunity to walk many individuals through the grief process. Because of my background in Christian ministry I find that I can also help people sort through the questions they have about faith and loss. One of the common questions I hear is, "How can a loving God allow this to happen?" If you are struggling with loss and have more questions than answers you need to find a safe place to process your feelings, find comfort and hope. I would like to walk this journey with you.

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 & 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.
