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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
