When grief's anguish becomes unbearable and life does not return to normal, psychological counseling can be extremely helpful in navigating you back to a satisfying and productive life. I work with you according to your unique experience while taking into account your cultural background and spiritual orientation. I help you review your relationship with the loved one or loss and find new meaning while respecting the impact of the loss. Memory, reflection, ritual and dialogue are some of the methods I use. I also look at how you have dealt with loss in the past. Of equal importance, I assist you in finding and maintaining healthy coping strategies to manage symptoms when times get tough

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.

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 As a parent, you may find yourself withdrawn or over-reactive, and then feel guilty about how this effects your child's moods.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...

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.

A unique aspect of my psychotherapy practice is my readiness and willingness to discuss the issues of death and mortality. Life is precious and we deserve to live our lives fully, but death is an unavoidable fact of our lives. Many people can recall when they first learned about the fact of mortality in their childhood -- perhaps when a pet died, or we lost a grandparent or family member, or when some tragedy occurred. Witnessing a death or suffering the loss of a loved one can change some people's lives forever. In my practice I support my clients to come to terms with painful losses in their lives, and to regain their ability to live life fully, even in the face of their own mortality.

Grief, when it surfaces, is one of the most confusing of human emotions. Together, we will soothingly allow the symptoms to lead us to the heart of the suffering where transformation is possible. If one allows it, there can be a sweetness and comfort in grief resolution. This is accessible as we resolve the barrier of complex feelings, and a part of you comes alive again. It makes sense that grieving enlivens. If there had been no significant bonding in these relationships to begin with, we would not be experiencing their loss as traumatic. While in the resolution process, you may experience a state of openness and vulnerability naturally opening to new learning and corrective experiences.

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.

I've treated many people who were dealing with the death of a loved one or with a breakup. It's a difficult time of life, but an important one. The science of grief therapy has changed. A death is no longer thought of solely in terms of the need to "move on," necessarily, but to understand who one is the face of the loss, in terms of one's own sense of identity, and plans. As for breakups are hard, but ripe, and therapy often involves reviewing what happened, and coming to an understanding of who one was and who one needs to be, to propel one to what comes next. .

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.
