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.

Nearly everyone has or will experience grief and loss in their lifetime. Grief is a normal and natural way to respond to the loss of a loved one or to a significant life change. Each person grieves in their own way and the length of recovery varies from person to person. Grief can be complicated by other factors such as multiple losses, preexisting depression, trauma, and the person’s dependency upon the deceased or lifestyle they lost. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to grieve. I do not take a "one size fits all" approach, but respond with sensitivity to your individual situation.

Grief and loss is like a deep well where pain lives. Counseling is a process that allows you to talk about your loved one or the loss you've experienced in an on-going way until healing begins to occur. This is not a conversation you have with friends or family very often as most people don't know how to handle your grief or loss. I've worked with many grieving individuals and somehow we find a way to find life and live it fully again.

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.

Grief is a natural way to deal with loss. Sadness, tears, sorrow and sometimes guilt can add to the feelings of loss. When grieving interferes with your everyday functioning is when it becomes a problem. I use narrative therapy, behavior modification and relaxation training to help with this issue. Being able to forgive oneself for the things we didn't do is an important step in recovery.
