The overwhelming sadness of loss comes in all shapes and sizes, whether you've ended a job or a relationship, left your childhood home or graduated college, experienced the death of family members or a yearned for opportunity. My treatment approach to grief helps clients process the shock, come to terms with the pain, work through residual anger or anxiety, accept the new reality and adjust to a new status, and transform loneliness or regret. If you have experienced an unanticipated traumatic loss of a loved one, and it's bringing up emotions and memories that are difficult to be with, I can provide the therapeutic process that can help you find the peace you seek inside yourself.

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 find that one of the most difficult challenges that a client faces is to reach out and ask for help with grieving and loss. We are most vulnerable in these times! My style is warm and empathic and a client can know (and hopefully feel) that I am truly WITH them in their pain and I feel honored for the opportunity to assist them in their journey to healing/letting go, and moving on!

When you have suffered a significant loss, it can be difficult to talk with the people who love you most because it can increase the distress of everyone involved. But talking is a way humans find positive meaning in even the most catastrophic events. A grief therapist can be a caring witness to all the complicated thoughts and feelings you have after a loss. Talking your way through the stages of grief with a therapist helps you move through the grief instead of suppressing it, release all the pain, and gradually to heal.

All individuals, if they live enough years, experience the death of a significant other. However, not all bereavement occurs due to a loss from death, yet the emotional pain can be as severe if not worse. Separation, divorce, ambiguous loss, chronic or terminal illness, or loss of status (e.g., financial or social) also involve a grieving process for individuals, couples or families. Many times, the repercussions of a loss are manifested in other presenting problems, such as school or behavioral problems in children and relational discord in couples. Working this through in a safe therapeutic environment will help you develop a new identity, and reestablish balance in you relationships.

Losses can be intensely painful and therapy can help you work through those emotions and overcome blocks in the grieving process. As you may realize, trying to avoid feelings of sadness and anger doesn't work. You may feel waves of sadness or like the pain will never stop but it will if you deal with it. The most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Trying to get enough sleep, eat right, and exercise can help too. If you want support to ease your pain, I am here for you.

A loss is guaranteed in each person's life, hence, every individual will succumb to grief at some point of their life. Each individual grieve in their own way. Based on my clinical and personal experience, the depth of the grieving often center around the emotional attachment to the item or individual lost. Grief should not be timed, however, each year the pain of the loss lessons but never completely dissipate. At Victoria Counseling, you will receive grief therapy that is individualized to you taking into account your values and belief system.

Grief is a natural and normal response to loss. There is always unfinished business when something ends. Sometimes the support you receive from family and friends is not enough. People who are close to you may have a need for you to appear to feel better sooner than you actually do. Clients I work with have felt it becomes less difficult to cope when they have time to talk about their loss with me. Identifying and expressing uncomfortable feelings like anger, anxiety and guilt is difficult to do alone. I work with people to develop effective and new methods of coping. Over time, I help my clients accept that their loss is a part of their life, but no longer defines them.
