The loss of a loved one is a tremendously painful and personal process. Grief and bereavement therapy with Dr. Vaughan provides a source of support and serves as an outlet for expressing the wide array of emotions and experiences - disbelief, anger, depression, sadness, emptiness, heartbreak, denial, guilt - that often comprise the grieving process. In a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment, Dr. Vaughan helps clients to make sense of their experiences and to find ways of coping with strong emotions.

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.

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.

If you or your child has experienced a significant loss, you know how difficult it can be to get back into the rhythm of life, and to find joy and hope once again. Perhaps you or your child are full of sadness, anger or fear... or simply confused and overwhelmed... As a parent, you may find yourself withdrawn or over-reactive, and then feel guilty about how this effects your child's moods. You may also find yourself at a loss as to how to help your child process his or her grief, talk about feelings in a helpful way, and yet also find happiness in daily activities. I can help you through the many facets of grieving, so that you and your child can create a positive future...

Helping you find wholeness...

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

People may experience many common symptoms related to grief and loss after losing a loved-one. Patients may also pass through stages of denial, anger and depression. Therapy can help an individual process these feelings and navigate these stages. A main goal when working with grief and loss may be to reach the period of acceptance (the time of closure). Talk therapy with a professional can be a very healthy approach to dealing with loss.

At times grief can be all encompassing and take away one’s sense of meaning, place in the world ,or hope in the future. I work with people to find small openings from where you can see that, although it may feel like it, grief is not a static state which will be here forever but something that can be moved through in order to create meaning in life after loss.

The pain you experience after losing a loved one is an intense human experience that could make you feel abandoned, hopeless, and incapable of moving forward in life. In addition, sometimes there is grief connected to losing something: a job, an opportunity, a past that will not come back, a country you left behind. I can offer an empathic ear and listening to you as you ponder important questions at this point in your life: What does your grief say? What are the fears that accompany your grief and loss? Is there a way to move forward in life knowing that the present and future will be different because someone or something won't be there with you?

However, in therapy I can give you tools and techniques to help you manage pain, accept loss, and open up to life again. When you are overwhelmed by grief, it can seem like the pain will never depart. Whatever you do, though, don't give up. With the right help, the time will come when you can find the proper balance between mourning and facing your own future.
