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.

Personal loss such as a loved one or due to trauma needs to be mourned in order to move on in one's life. This difficult process requires a 'witness' to the emotional loss. Psychoanalysis serves the function of enabling a person to speak about the loss. It enables an individual to remember in a way that enhances the individual survivor.

Grief is something you will, unfortunately, have to go through. You can't go around it, skip over it to the end, or otherwise avoid it. I can help you realize when you are going through the process and when you're fleeing it in a way that will come back to bit you in the ***. On the positive side, going through grief is not as complicated as it's sometimes cracked up to be. Talking - with the right person - goes a long way to moving the process forward.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Island Park

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.

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.

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 there—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.

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.

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.

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.

Recovering from grief is never an easy process and nothing can replace the essential element: time. However, in therapy I can give you tools and techniques to help you manage pain, accept loss, and open up to life again. When you are overwhelmed by grief, it can seem like the pain will never depart. Whatever you do, though, don't give up. With the right help, the time will come when you can find the proper balance between mourning and facing your own future.

Grief and loss can come in many forms. While most people think of death and dying, loss can be a separation or divorce, loss of a job, retirement, moving, seeing a child off to college, losing weight. There are so many more that I could list. All of these have an impact on us and how we view ourselves and our world. They shake us, they make us feel a bit less steady. It requires a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, understanding and hopeful.

Licensed Marriage Counselor and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Island Park

I provide superior counseling and therapy services for those who have experienced a traumatic loss in their life. This does not have to be just a loss or grief from death, but also of that of a relationship (per se through a break-up or divorce.) I enable the client to work at their own pace as far as recovery goes, and take it one session at a time. I allow them to grieve naturally, but also take the approach that will lead them to cope better with loss, through communication and other means- My goal will ultimately be to lead them to sanctuary and enable them to move forward with their life- while strategically allowing time to heal their wounds.

It is very common for individuals to seek psychotherapy in times of grief. The death of a loved one is perhaps the single most intensive emotional experience an individual must face.We understand that sometimes there is little hope and trust because the road to recovery has been exhausting full of short-lived success. ART is dedicated to find an individualized treatment that closely fits the unique circumstances of each client; we do not apply "one size fits all" type of therapeutic treatment.
