What does it look like to be paralyzed from grief? When you've lost someone near and dear to you, it's quite difficult to ever be the same. Our goal is not to ever be the same again, but to move to a place of honoring the person who has moved on. When you experience the excruciating void of the person who's moved on, it seems almost impossible to move on yourself. However, our work together will help you find what helps you to honor that person you love, and come back to your life and community stronger than before.

Grief is the result of any type of loss that we may experience from death to divorce, to the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, to the death of a pet. It leaves us with a broken heart. The more significant the relationship to the loss, the deeper the pain and wound. Genuine care and support are not always enough. I offer grief and loss counseling tools along with the healing actions of new coping skills to bring vitality and hope back into the life of someone who is in pain. Your loss can never be replaced however it can be healed so your life can again be fulfilling and happy.

Grief, sadness, occurs for many reasons, and is met with empathy and compassion in my practice. We grieve for death of a loved one; loss of a relationship; family, a marriage; a home; loss of a job; a friend. In short, there are as many forms of grief as there are reasons for it. There is no set time to grieve, some need more time to process through than others. Extended or complicated grief can interfere with relationships, employment, family. It can develop into a very deep melancholy or sadness and even depression. Grief/loss can create anxiety and stress. Together we'll find the best way for you to survive, thrive and overcome your grief and live the life you truly want.

So.i.Heard Music Therapy, MM, MT-BC, NMT

Neurologic Music Therapist

Within driving distance of Metuchen

Our credentialed music therapists tailor sessions to each individual, utilizing personalized music exercises and interventions to address each person's unique experiences of loss or trauma. Involvement in music addresses trauma in two ways: music reaches us on an emotional level to help with coping, as well as on a neurological level to address and heal areas of the brain that are affected when trauma or loss are experienced. Our music therapists work with each client using musical elements like songwriting, processing, and guided imagery to help clients find their own voice and learn new coping skills to help manage trauma of any severity.

Grief Counselor

Babita Spinelli, LP

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Metuchen

When we think of grief, it is usually as a reaction to the loss of a loved one, but grief can also take place because of a break-up or divorce, loss of a job, loss of a role in life (i.e empty nester), loss of finances, or other painful experiences. As a compassionate and deeply empathic therapist, your needs and concerns are primary when working with me. My approach is person-centered, strength based, supportive but also engaging. I understand that when processing grief, it can sometimes be difficult managing intense feelings. In our work together, I will help you process the loss, find peace and hope, implement coping skills to navigate through the grief and tools to move your forward.

Licensed Professional Counselor

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

Cathy Noblick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Metuchen

The range and intensity of emotions experienced as a result of a significant loss often make the grieving person feel like they are going crazy. You need a non-judgemental place to process the loss and the effect it has had and is having on your life, and to talk about what you are experiencing. You need someone who understands the devastation and its profound impact on you and who can help you pick up the pieces and gradually begin to imagine the future in a different way.

Grief Counselor

Karyn Reader, MSW, LCSW, BCD

Psychotherapist

While grieving is normal when we have lost someone or something we loved and valued, it is nevertheless, painful and difficult. Grieving can even be more difficult when the relationship was conflicted and unhappy. Loss may be of a loved person or it can be of your health, independence, home, job, or beloved pet. Everyone grieves differently, and others in your life may not understand your way, or perhaps you are alone or feel alone. I can help you through the intensity of initial loss, work towards a balance of memories and taking your life forward, and do it your way. There is no right way to grieve and no set time limits. I will care about what is right for you.

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.
