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."

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 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.

Recognizing that people deal with loss and grief in a variety of ways that are unique to who they are, there prior experiences with loss and grief, I meet each person where they are at a attempt to faciliate them through the grieving process via their uniqueness. In addition, I educate clients on the different feelings, etc. that they might be experiencing and help them label it in a way that makes sense for them and who they are.

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.

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.

My son committed suicide after a lengthy battle with addiction and depression. As a parent, I have a unique knowledge of treatment facilities from the inside out. I know what it is like to walk through darkness and come out the other side. As a psychologist, I have the compassion, experience, and skills to help individuals move through the stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I offer hope when individuals feel helpless.

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).
