I believe that people's identities are intertwined, and therefore the loss of a significant person leaves gaps in our lives--even when we don't recognize them. We can recover, but we can't go back. Time helps, but what helps most is having someone who can hear the stories, both the painful ones and the joyful ones. A new story is already being written and with a trusted helper it can be a source of strength.

The most difficult part of life is experiencing the loss of a loved one. Nothing we experience is more painful than this. Despite this often incapacitating pain, with work and time, one can heal and overcome. When this occurs, one emerges from the pain as a new person, in ways that one could not formerly conceive. A large part of my work is guiding people through this process, as I am deeply familiar with it, both personally and professionally.

Grief and loss are a part of everyone's life. But everyone copes with sorrow differently. Using empathy and personal life experiences I help clients understand the stages of grief as it can apply to death, divorce or moving. Teaching of the comforting role of the Holy Spirit is part of the growth through pain process.

What have you lost? What deep sadness has you reading this, today? Do you struggle with regret, shattered: hope, self-esteem, promise? Are you having difficulty making sense of things? Yourself? Having trouble picking up the pieces and moving forward? Wondering if anyone else ever felt your same feelings in their circumstances? Is what you're feeling normal? What do you do with these feelings?! Do you feel overwhelmed, stuck, in shock? Does the anger surprise you? There are many different kinds of feelings that surface when you are dealing with loss, and grief is much more complicated than most people realize. Causes include: endings of any kind; beginnings of any kind; illness; love; life!

Grief is a natural part of life; we will eventually have to say goodbye to everything we love and are connected to. Yet, for many of us, grief does not feel natural. Sometimes we might feel angry about our losses -- that life is unjust. We might be depressed and longing for our loved one's presence again. Grief is a process. It takes time to heal. Often, people think "what is the use of counseling when they won't bring my loved one back?" There can be healing inside you even if your loved one cannot come back. Don't be alone in your grief.

Grief and bereavement are natural emotions that we all will experience. In an adult’s lifetime, one will likely experience grief in a number of different relationships, including, but not limited to, the loss of a parent, spouse, sibling, friend, family member, co-worker, or child. Many factors play into how we will grieve including what the nature of the relationship was with the loss. Your journey through grief is unique. The same experiences which have shaped who you are will also affect how you experience and process grief and loss. Although your experience will be unique, there is much that is common about the grieving process. My approach to grief and loss counseling is to understan....

Grief and loss is something we can't avoid in life. I have learned we need to face it and live through it. I personally know the pain caused by divorce and the death of family members having lost my son, Scott, at the age of 29. However, as we talk about it and share its pain, I believe we can get through the dark valleys of life to get to the other side.

Michael Govan, MA, LLP, LPC, LSGC, EMDR II

Licensed Professional Counselor

I know personally what it is to experience loss. My clients sense I can relate to their unique situation, and are surprised to learn about the User-Friendly tools that help each person to maximize their recovery in a short period of time!!! I help them to determine their losses from the event and the feelings associated with these losses. Then we examine the consequences of the loss-feeling combinations. Often we use EMDR from there to settle the feelings and turn around any negative self-belief that has arisen from the losses. This turns out to be a fairly quick process even for those who have years of grief over their loss(es).

Grief is a natural process everyone feels when they have experienced a loss. We can experience a loss not just in a loved one (or pet) but in lost opportunities, in divorce with the loss of the unity of a family, and a host of other losses. We suck it up and stuff it down until one day something is too big for us and then "everything" we've sucked up or stuffed down begins to surface like a flood. Grief is meant to be fluid (continually moving). Grief isn't something you "get over." It's something you "go through."
