Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.

People seek support following the loss of a parent, grandparent, friend, child, loved one, or a pet. Sometimes it's struggles surrounding the loss of an identity, perhaps a breakup, or an athletic or physical injury that is leading to the loss of goals you had for yourself. No matter the type of loss, getting support during this time can be particularly helpful. Together we can work through the stages of grief, learn from your loss, and rebuild your sense of self so that you can move forward in your life.

I use CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) approach to work with the grief and loss that you might be going through. As a part of that approach you might be asked to think, talk, sometimes write at home some thoughts and memories that I will ask you about. It will give you a chance to slow down and give attention to grieving the loss of the loved ones. I use specific manual to walk you through this process.

A loss can stop you in your tracks or some people report that they feel like they are "a witness" to their life and not a participant. We will work together on grieving your loss while also working on allowing you to become a participant in your life again. Having a dedicated space in your week to allow you to express your grief can allow you function at a higher level. Grieving does not have a timetable and it is not the same for everyone. Everyone grieves at their own pace and in their own way and we will work together at your speed and in the way that makes you most comfortable.

Grief Counselor

Helen Borel, RN,MFA,PhD

PsychoTherapist and PsychoAnalyst

There are four phases of grief which you'll go through when you've lost someone, before you can move to the next part of your life. There's shock. Then the pain of realizing who you've lost, what he or she meant to you, a gut-struggle about how you'll move on without him or her. Next comes "bargaining," a way your brain protects you from too much suffering. Whether it's to your God or another spiritual connection of yours, you may try asking for the lost person's return if you do this or that "good" thing. Finally, as your loss becomes real to you, comes Acceptance. Over my 20 years of practice, I've guided patients gently through each of these difficult stages of loss and personal growth.

Grief is something you will, unfortunately, have to go through. You can't go around it, skip over it to the end, or otherwise avoid it. I can help you realize when you are going through the process and when you're fleeing it in a way that will come back to bit you in the ***. On the positive side, going through grief is not as complicated as it's sometimes cracked up to be. Talking - with the right person - goes a long way to moving the process forward.

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Mahwah

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.

Grief Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

If it is a past loss we will talk about that relationship and what it meant to you, and see how that person affected you in your current life and what he/she meant to you. If it is a current or impending loss, we can focus on day-to-day issues to lessen anxiety, and process how to handle what time is left. Practical issues may be discussed. if you find yourself obsessing we will probably focus on feeling, if you find yourself lost in feeling, we may focus on verbalizing your thoughts and your feelings. If you are overwhelmed by depression and find it difficult to function, I will make recommendations for medications and/or alternative strategies.

Grief and loss are certainly very difficult to deal with, but sooner or later, it comes to all of us. I meet my clients right where they are in the process of their grieving, and sit with them in that space. I help people to walk through the feelings and stay with them through the process. I create a safe space where clients can be with all the emotions they are experiencing. I am very patient as individuals walk through their grief at their own pace.

Grief Counselor

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

Grief Counselor

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.
