When we have lost a person, a job, a healthy body, a reliable home life, a steady income, a longed for opportunity, we grieve in ways that often can compound our loss and make our lives even more difficult. I can walk you through your loss. Talking about what your loss means to you can help you integrate it into your larger life experience. Understanding the crucial role of loss in personal development can help prevent the pain of loss from becoming destructive, so that we can refocus our lives.

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.

Grief and loss are powerful emotions that can cause daily emotional pain and negative thinking. Grief and loss can inhibit people from taking action and getting what they want out of life. Grief and loss can be short term due to a death, divorce, or loss of a job, friendship, etc. Sometimes these feelings are chronic and began in childhood due to growing up in a dysfunctional family. In Psychotherapy we work on effective tools to help people mourn, let go of the pain and find ways to move on in their lives.

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 thereā€”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 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.

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.

Losing a loved one, friend, or pet can be devastating and can present profound challenges. Shortly after the loss, you will probably feel as if your brain is in a fog and you are just "going through the motions." This can be a very difficult time for you and talking to a therapist about your feelings can help you work through the loss and move forward in a positive and less inhibited manner.

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.
