Sorrow can immobilize life. It binds our hearts, hands and feet and although we may try desperately to ignore it, grief hangs like a heavy wet cloak. Wanting to toss this heavy cloak of loss aside, the idea of welcoming sorrow seems out of the question. Yet the only way to lighten its burden is to dive into its mystery and try to understand it. When we sing our sorrows we give them wings. We find, as the poet Wendell Berry says, “That the dark, too, blooms and sings.” Neither ignoring sorrow, nor dwelling in its seductive grasp will make it go away. In working with clients who are dealing with loss, we start by giving it the type of attention it deserves so we can send it on its way.

To live, to strive, to love, to care; these qualities make for a rich life. Yet inevitably, we will have times in our life where we experience the absence of these cherished assets: we will be in mourning over the death of a loved one, or we will feel grief due to some other kind of loss, such as a divorce, an empty nest, retirement. Charlie Bulman can help you begin to smooth out the emotional roller-coaster ride involved with grieving, as you rebuild a life that accommodates your loss, and helps you look forward--and not backwards--again. I use concepts from narrative, cognitive, and existential therapies to address grief.

Grief is normal, exquisitely painful, and seriously lonely. My earliest therapy experience was as a Hospice Grief Counselor for four years. In those formative years, I learned the core issues that hamper our grief, the practices that make grief more tolerable, and the practiced patience necessary to bring comfort to those suffering sudden and protracted loss. I won't rush you. I'll normalize your pain and I'll nudge you gently toward practices that help.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in St. Paul, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around St. Paul may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local St. Paul public health department.
