Grief therapy aims to help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (e.g., divorce, major illness). Everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way, often shaped by culture. They believe that it is not uncommon for a person to withdraw from their friends and family and feel helpless; some might be angry. One can expect a wide range of emotion and behavior associated with grief. We believe that in all places and cultures, the grieving person benefits from the support of others.

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!

Our therapists help clients move through the grieving process at a pace and way that is unique to each client.

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).

While grief is our natural human response to loss, it can drain our energy and motivation for life. As a trained Grief Recovery specialist I join you in the journey as you review your relationship. Recovery from grief involves an accurate review of your relationship, looking at the positive and painful experiences. Together we discuss any regrets, guilt, joys and pain and take the specific steps necessary to complete your grief. The process generally takes about 7-10 sessions. It could take less or more time for you to experience significant relief from grief symptoms depending on the length and nature of your relationship, and other possible factors. Contact me today at (248) 929-5354.

Grief and loss are experienced not only when losing a loved one but when a relationship ends, a sex life declines and a person experiences a coming out process. The grief and loss attached to endings of a way of life can be just as devastating if not moreso. In death, the end is final. In grief involving relationships things change and grief can be prolonged. Coming out as LGBT one experiences loss of heterosexual privilege which can be painful. Losing trust with a spouse after cheating and affairs is hard to recover from and grief gets in the way of recovery.

Grief and loss can be difficult to navigate through on your own. My therapeutic approach involves being a support person for those who are grieving. I will assist the client in processing their emotions and thinking related to the loss. Additionally, I will help to educate the client on the grief process in order to successfully overcome the experienced loss. I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach in my treatment and therefore will help the client to understand how their thoughts affect their behaviors and may help or hinder their resolution of grief.

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.
