Whether it is a geographical move, a shift from college student to adulthood or the loss of a job, loss of a loved one, or a painful end to a relationship, these and other changes and losses can affect us powerfully. I work with people to process and mourn what no longer is and discover ways to acquire the personal flexibility needed to accommodate transition and loss.

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 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.

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.

Depression and grief are often confounded. Although the etiology may be different, the shared characteristic is the overwhelming sense of sadness and loss, which can be amenable to cognitive-behavioral techniques. Understanding of the progression through the stages of grief (typically Kubler-Ross) is usually helpful. I have had particular experience with patients who are immobilized by prolongued grieving.

Grief Counselor

Johannes Marselis, LCSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist

I am here to bear witness to your pain and to explore with you the path through it, including how much to let go of, and examination of what was lost. Grief and emotional, sometimes physical suffering are natural, albeit sometimes unbearable, responses to loss. Examining what it is that was lost, what needs it filled and how to cope in it's absence is very individual. Sometimes it hurts as a direct and equal reflection of how much we cared, for better or worse.

Relationship endings are a guaranteed part of life that everyone experiences. When a relationship concludes – whether through death, divorce or some other reason – it is common to review it, examine it and even wish that something about it was different. Perhaps we regret something we said or longed to hear something from the other person. Endings are accompanied by conclusions to our hopes and dreams for the future. My approach to working with grieving clients is to permit them fully feel their loss and to process their grief in their own way and at their own pace. When it comes to grieving clients I will join with them in their loss and will encouraging them to feel all the feelings that surface about the person and the relationship they shared.

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.

Have you recently experienced the loss of a loved one ? Regardless of how prepared one is the loss of a dear family member or friend can be a devastating and paralyzing experience. When there is attachment to a person over many years they become a part of our being. Their loss diminishes us and a part of us is forever changed. Experiencing the feelings of grief and loss alone can be overwhelming. Psychotherapy can ameliorate pain associated with deep grief and sorrow at the loss of a loved one.
