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.

Grieving the loss of loved one can be complicated if our valued identity and/or our equanimity was tied to that person given diffuse boundaries. When we overly depend on people regulate our emotions, self esteem or self confidence, then being without them can leave us angry, bereft, empty, etc. In psychotherapy we can rewrite the specious narrative that you were joined at the hip because you could not survive without that person. By internalizing what is offered by the therapist to enhance your self-reliance, you are then free to come to terms with the reality of loss of your loved one and internalize the relationship that is over. That person can now live on inside of you.

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.

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.

All too often, grief is rushed away. Certainly, as we try to resume our lives after a loss, grief can catch us in its grip, limiting our ability to focus, function, and feel joy. Grief work in treatment is beneficial because it offers the opportunity to express and explore your feelings about the person lost, including some of the more complicated feelings that may be difficult to recognize. This helps promote healing and a sense of resolution and can be instrumental in regaining your balance after a loss.

When you suffer a significant loss it can be one of the most devastating experiences of your life. My approach to grief counseling begins with providing sensitive and supportive therapy to enable you to mourn your loss and slowly being the transition to moving forward without your loved one. If your pain is so overwhelming that you find it difficult to successfully function after you have had a period of time to recover, we will explore the obstacles that interfere with you moving ahead and implement practical strategies to assist you with improving your quality of life.

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.

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....

Often when someone experiences a loss there are no words that can describe the experience. Creative arts therapy can offer another way to explore what is going on and to begin expressing or processing the emotions, thoughts, etc. that occur. This is a place to begin feeling grounded and supported as you work with the grief and/or loss experienced. The art will be both a tool and a reflection of the journey. No previous creative experience is necessary.

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.

Experiencing a loss of any kind can be especially traumatic. It is my belief that having a safe place to address issues related to this loss can be particularly beneficial. Each person deals with loss differently and I emphasize the need to allow each person to go through the process in order to successfully transition to a healthier and happier place, and versions of themselves.

There are four phases of grief which you'll go through when you've lost someone, before you can move to the next part of your life. There's shock. Then the pain of realizing who you've lost, what he or she meant to you, a gut-struggle about how you'll move on without him or her. Next comes "bargaining," a way your brain protects you from too much suffering. Whether it's to your God or another spiritual connection of yours, you may try asking for the lost person's return if you do this or that "good" thing. Finally, as your loss becomes real to you, comes Acceptance. Over my 20 years of practice, I've guided patients gently through each of these difficult stages of loss and personal growth.

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.
