Suffering a loss of a loved one can be devastating. You do not have to do it alone. Studies show that when one has a strong support team this can greatly help in their grieving process. I will work with you (and your family- if you so chose) to understand the grieving process, the emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects to help you get through this most difficult time.

In your grief and sense of loss, my primary job is to be able to truly listen to you. To have the strength to really understand and feel the change in your life, and to have the courage to absorb and empthaize with that loss, not to protect myself from it. Hopefully, with that help, you will be provided the forum in which to begin to adjust to your loss.

Most people who come to therapy are suffering from some loss, whether from a death of a loved one or the loss of a job or of a relationship. There is also the loss of dreams. Together, we work to find out what the losses have been and to "work through" them. This is hard work, but on the "other side" of this work, once it has been done, is the energy and vitality and the peace of mind that has been missing. I usually use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for this work, as there is so much research to support it, and it works quickly compared to most therapeutic approaches.

To help a client cope through grief and loss, I sometimes use the example of how an oyster forms a pearl. The oyster ingests a grain of sand that causes pain, and which cannot be removed or dissolved (just like we cannot eliminate the pain of missing a loved one). So the oyster begins to encase the grain of sand with layers of calcium-like substance, that makes the grain of sand easier to carry and hold, without the rough edges. Coping through grief and loss can involve learning how to unpack, experience, and adjust how we carry the pain. Therapy can help you soften and encase the pain of loss, forming a "pearl" around it that is easier to carry with you, and perhaps make it more precious.

Loss is inevitable. It is the flip side of love and the greatest pain we know. Hearts can break and hearts can heal. We must first accept ALL feelings. We can cultivate gratitude for the gifts our loved one gave us. Sometimes it is also important to acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the one we have lost., the ways they may have caused pain to themselves and others. If the person has been a large part of our daily living, it is as if we need to recreate our lives bringing new resources into the emptiness. The waves of extreme pain become less frequent with time. The person's memory remains with us, and their gifts to us can inspire those very strengths in ourselves.

I have guided many people going through the loss of a family member or friend. I am currently working with a client who lost his mother. He has begun to feel better and remember his mother in ways that are deeply meaningful to him. I have also experienced losses which gives me a greater understanding of what you may need to express your feelings and continue to live a full life.

Grief and loss are part of life; yet, people who are experiencing loss and grief can be misunderstood by those around them. At times, those who grieve can feel isolated from others. Sometimes people around them don't understand what they are going through and ask questions like. "Why can't you get on with life?" "Why can't you get over it?" I create a safe environment for clients to process their grief over their losses, whether it be a death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, the loss of health or the loss of hopes and dreams for the future. We work together to find ways to cope with the pain and find joy in life once again.

Grief and loss are a natural and unavoidable part of life, whether it is a sudden loss, like the loss of a loved one to death, or a more gradual loss, like the loss of physical vitality with illness or aging. When a very large loss overwhelms us and makes life seem painful and perhaps meaningless, it is time to get help to put that loss in perspective. I help people to work their way through loss and find ways to make it part of the larger mosaic of their life, helping them reduce the overwhelming pain and helping them find hope and meaning again.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Each loss is unique and so is the treatment. You may need a witness to tell your story in a safe, respectful place or find strategies to deal with unresolved issues with an important person you lost or a job. I can help you through this by using different strategies, such as, writing unsent letters to the person you lost, visualizing ways of moving on while establishing rituals to maintain good memories, connecting with support groups as needed,etc.

Grieving has several different stages and my approach is to help clients process and normalize the range of emotions they may experience with loss. I also normalize the fact that people grieve in different ways and in their own time frame. Loss can take many forms: loss of relationship, job, illness/injury, pets; it isn't limited to the physical death of a loved one. I've found that doing some sort of physical representation of what was lost can be very healing, for example a collage, drawing, or scrap book.

Are you grieving a loss and wondering if you’ll ever feel normal again? Are your family and friends at a loss as to how to help you? Do you feel like they’re tired of hearing you talk about it? Grief and loss are much more complicated than most people think. It’s not always a matter of mourning for a couple of months after which you just “get over it.” If you are still grieving after you think you should be done, you may start to criticize yourself for not moving on as quickly as expected. Here’s the truth: each person grieves in his or own way and time. There’s no right way to grieve. You can find a way to accept yourself and move through your loss in your own way. Call today.
