Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Not one of us in life will ever escape the saddening loss of a loved one, home, job, pet or something. So unfortunately it is inevitable. Grief is a process with different stages as is loss. Sometimes we need assistance in learning about those stages, other times we are aware of them, but simply get stuck in trying to find some form of acceptance or "closure." Personally, I do not believe in "closure," but more realistic is learning how to live and go forward after our loss. Supportive, caring and realistic therapy is needed at a time when sadness and wonder of how one can go on after a tremendous loss occurs in our life. There are no "magic words" to make it all go away. But I will help.

We treat grief and loss holistically. We infuse breathing techniques, guided imagery, and meditation with Art Therapy and evidence-based talk therapy modalities to help you regain inner safety and connection. We will help you create new avenues to regain inner-calm, understanding and acceptance through self-expression. Everyone responds uniquely to traumatic events and loss. You may have an immediate or delayed response with mental, emotional, and/or physical symptoms. Your symptoms may subside as time passes or you may have lasting issues stemming from your trauma. We help children, adolescents and adults process grief.

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Little Ferry.

Grieving the loss of loved one can be complicated if our valued identity and/or our equanimity was tied to that person given diffuse boundaries. When we overly depend on people regulate our emotions, self esteem or self confidence, then being without them can leave us angry, bereft, empty, etc. In psychotherapy we can rewrite the specious narrative that you were joined at the hip because you could not survive without that person. By internalizing what is offered by the therapist to enhance your self-reliance, you are then free to come to terms with the reality of loss of your loved one and internalize the relationship that is over. That person can now live on inside of you.

If you have lost someone close to you through death, relocation or the end of a relationship, and feel isolated and lonely, it takes time and support to gently move forward in life. If you are shy or feel anxiety in social situations it can be hard to reach out for help and create the supportive relationships you need. I can help you move forward, gain a new sense of self worth, and begin to create meaningful nurturing social connections.

If you're suffering from the loss of a friend, relative or loved one, remember the quote that "We are the strongest in the broken places". Sometimes such a loss can hobble us and leave us feeling despairing, sad, depressed or anxious. I can help you (as I've helped so many others over time) to heal your pain and find your way through this rough patch to a new day.

Life - even a happy life - involves loss. Loss of loved one's, death of parents, separation from children, changes in intimate relationships, separation, divorce, change of life circumstances - all of these can be felt as losses. But how do we differentiate between grief and depression? Mourning is a process that has boundaries. It does not go on forever. At some point, we reorganize our lives, and move on, despite the loss. Depression lasts much longer, and is frequently a factor in relationships that have been difficult before the loss. Understanding and accepting your ambivalence can help you move on. I can help. Call me to see if we're a match.

Each individual copes with grief in their own way and in their own time. I support clients at all stages of their grief. Some clients are anticipating a death in the family or experiencing a loved one being very ill. Others may have recently experienced a death in the family and there are clients who are coming to therapy due to re-experiencing triggers from a past chiildhood loss. Wherever you are in your life, I provide a non judgmental, safe space for you to talk, experience your array of feelings and to be heard. Our work is collaborative and I will be guided by where you are in your grief and what you are most needing from me and work together.

Grief is a natural response to a loss, and loss can come in many forms: loss of a relationship, friendship, health, job, financial stability, safety; death of a loved one or even a pet; or a loved one’s serious illness. It is normal to feel sad, numb, angry, even guilty, following a loss, but these feelings should become less intense over time. In therapy, together we can explore if the pain and feelings surrounding your loss are so constant and severe that they keep you from resuming your life, if you feel “stuck” in an intense state of morning and how to overcome and learn to live again.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Loss can come in so many different forms, yet the pain is there and is strong. When we hold someone or something dear to our heart and then they suddenly gone, we are often left with a hole in our heart and need to grieve that loss. Grief looks different for each person. There are 5 main stages of grief that most people will go through in an order: Denial and Isolation, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These are hard stages to walk through alone. Reach out and call one of our compassionate therapists at Mars and Venus Counseling Center who can help you to talk through each of the emotions that you experience at each stage.

Grief is associated with feelings of sadness, guilt, regret and anger, among others. Some people may experience a sense of meaninglessness and others can feel a sense of relief. Emotions are often surprising in their strength and different for everyone. There can be a sense of confusion on how to navigate and process grief. Often people will attach to unhealthy coping skills in order to manage their grief. Through therapy we will help clients process their grief and develop helping coping skills specific to each client to help deal with their loss.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief and bereavement are the natural emotional responses to any kind of loss. It involves experiencing intense feelings, many of them unexpectedly and overwhelmingly. Loss is a personal journey; while grieving can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it is also common for the griever to experience difficulties identifying and sharing feelings or experience inter-personal conflict. Even, guilt, anxiety and anger may rise in addition to sadness and sorrow during grief. Bereavement counseling can provide a safe space to explore the struggles inherent to loss, with the support and understanding of a professional.

The term “Grief” refers to one's reaction to loss. There is no normal timetable for recovering from grief. Some recover and resume normal activities within six months, while others experience grief for years without relief. In either situation, time typically does mitigate the intensity emotions related to the loss. There are some instances, however, where grief becomes debilitating and lasts for a year or longer. In these cases, the term “Complicated Grief” is used. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance in coping with grief, I encourage you to reach out for support.
