We begin by exploring where you are in your stage of grief and loss, recent or past that still hurts. I have learned that the most important thing is to listen to you, to be present and honor your unique loss. Grief is a natural process that takes time. Getting through the loss of the dream that should have been does not mean you forget but you can come to a point where you can be present and ready to face the future. With time you can explore reframe your feelings about the former relationship, keep what fits and let go of what doesn't fit. Complex grief takes a more exquisite focus on a deeper level to desensitize and reframe what happened so you can shift perspective and go on.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

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.

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.
