Grief and Loss is a natural part of life, and sadly our culture doesn’t make much time for the process. Everything is so fast paced, and we are supposed to bounce back to our old selves quickly. Well, it takes time to mourn our losses, and it is so useful to have someone to listen with patience and compassion for as long as it takes to adapt to such momentous changes. If you decide to work with me, you will find a place to process your feelings, in your own time, alongside someone who is compassionate, warm and understanding. I encourage you to call to set up a complimentary, 30 minute consultation and see if we are a good fit.

The loss of a loved one (whether through physical or emotional separation) is a profound experience and one that will forever mark a transformational point in your life. Often times the pain you feel is evidence of the depth of your caring, and you may actually feel ambivalent about reducing your suffering in the face of such devastation. You and I can walk together through this process, helping you to find peace alongside the suffering and growth in the midst of loss.

Grief is a process that is different for everyone. It is a journey and it does take time. I want to hear your story. I want to hear about the person or focus of your loss. Eventually the hope is that you will get to the point where, even though you can't forget the pain, eventually it has less of an impact on your day-to-day life. Just being able to be heard and understood can be helpful. Rituals of closure can also help. You don't have to go through your grief alone. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule and mnonlinecounseling.com.

Grief is sometimes a lonely journey. Each person reacts to loss in their own way and on their own time schedule. I approach psychotherapy for grief and loss as an opportunity to learn about the cycle of grief. I want to learn more about you and where you are at in the process. Similarly, I try to give practical tips for dealing with sad moments while supporting you through the process.

The only way I know to help someone experience grief and loss is to create a safe place for them to feel their emotions and help them eventually make sense of their sorrow. I use empathy, compassion and a non-judgmental approach to hold your pain when sometimes the burden is too heavy. My particular specialty is grief and loss associated with reproductive concerns and I have a certificate in Maternal Mental Health from Postpartum Support International.

Both sudden and anticipated loss of a loved one is difficult. The grieving process is a natural way in which we work though the adjustment to the loss we experience. Processing your loss is not prescriptive. The grieving process is different for everyone. If you are deeply depressed by your loss, or if you are having a difficult time adjusting to your loss please call me.

I work a great deal with trauma issues. I consider trauma a loss. I offer EMDR therapy for trauma and loss issues and trauma for veterans. Patients who have suffered for years from anxiety or distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, abuse or other traumatic events can now gain relief from a therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). Research shows that EMDR is rapid, safe and effective. EMDR does not involve the use of drugs or hypnosis. It is a simple, non-invasive patient-therapist collaboration in which healing can happen effectively. Many patients who have made slow progress in the past benefit greatly with EMDR.

Have people told you that you need to "move on", "get over it" or "they are in a better place"? Grief is a complicated issue and healing can take some time. We will work together to honor your personal journey. For many their goal is to work toward resolution of the loss so that the feelings of pain are lessened and the memories of the lost loved one are held dear. Each individual is unique and our work together will be based on your personal life story. If there is trauma involved in the loss Connie Studer, MA, LMFT is skilled in trauma resolution.

People who have trauma in the life or are struggling with grief and loss often turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. Unfortunately, grief and loss is only complicated with our choice to use substances or addictive behaviors to cope. I work with individuals and families as they walk through the grief and loss. If there are complications with addictive behaviors, freedom can be found.

Grief is a reaction to loss, and it can be intensely painful and overwhelming, often involving complex feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, hopelessness, and longing. Grieving is a process and it takes time, even though well-meaning friends and family may grow impatient and suggest you “get over it” or “move on.” It is a process of learning how to live in a world that has changed in fundamental ways, whether due to the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, moving or losing a job, or countless other reasons. As a therapist, I can help you bear and understand the painful feelings that keep company with grief, and, over time, come to find meaning in a changed world despite your losses.

Are you asking: What is the right way to grieve? How do I help my children cope with losing someone while I am grieving? How do I work through my guilty feelings surrounding this death? Why am I sad about losing someone who hurt me? Why am I not sad? Will this pain ever get better? There is no right way to grieve. There may be healthier ways for you to grieve that will help you move through the intense feelings. Often, it is most important to make time to remember the good times, to process the painful memories connected with that person and to reconnect with life. I specialize in providing individual, couple or family grief counseling to adolescents, adults, veterans, and first responders.

Grieving is different than depression! At times we may not be able to distinguish between the two. Grieving is a very individual process. We all do it differently. It can result from the death of someone significant in our lives, but also from other events too. For example, meeting a long-term goal, divorce, the loss of physical health & functioning, loss of a job, or after a traumatic experience. To grieve effectively any of us need support and encouragement to face the needs and painful feelings that we often would prefer to avoid. I find that providing a warm, safe environment and supportive guidance allows my clients to feel what they need to feel in order to integrate painful losses.

When you lose someone or something that you love, it can feel as though your world has ended. Everyone reacts to grief and loss differently. For example, one person may cope by denying that the loss has happened, another person may bury his/her hurt in busy behaviors (such as working), while others may be able to express their sadness in a direct manner. All are common responses to loss. Grief can prove difficult: it may abate and then reappear seemingly out of nowhere. Or in the case of couples, different grief reactions can result in significant conflict. Our work together can address the common feelings associated with grief, improve overall coping, and increase acceptance of the loss
