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 As a parent, you may find yourself withdrawn or over-reactive, and then feel guilty about how this effects your child's moods.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

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.

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.

Our goal is to help people move through the process, rather than “get over it.” There are other types of loss that we offer counseling for as well. These can include divorce or the loss of a job, for example.

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.

Grief is about loss and the threat of loss. The stronger the bond between us and the person we have lost, the more we will hurt both physically and emotionally. When we are torn from a family member or friend, a part of us dies as well. Our natural need for attachment gets severed, often bringing the return of childhood fears. The world feels like a more dangerous place. As a result, we may feel out of control. We ache to have the loved person back. We know in the rational part of our minds that the person is not coming back, but it also seems impossible to let him go. We will remain emotionally conflicted until we can release our loved ones. Because letting go is so difficult, we must do it slow....

If you're suffering from the loss of a friend, relative or loved one, remember the quote that "We are the strongest in the broken places". Sometimes such a loss can hobble us and leave us feeling despairing, sad, depressed or anxious. I can help you (as I've helped so many others over time) to heal your pain and find your way through this rough patch to a new day.

Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Union City.

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.

We all experience grief & loss from time to time. However, there are some losses that are simply too big to get through in the usual ways. At times like this we need additional support. Successful grieving entails coming to terms with the enormity of the loss and making tough decisions about how to meaningfully proceed with living in a world that no longer feels the same.

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.
