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.

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

The loss of a loved one is a tremendously painful and personal process. Grief and bereavement therapy with Dr. Vaughan provides a source of support and serves as an outlet for expressing the wide array of emotions and experiences - disbelief, anger, depression, sadness, emptiness, heartbreak, denial, guilt - that often comprise the grieving process. In a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment, Dr. Vaughan helps clients to make sense of their experiences and to find ways of coping with strong emotions.

When we experience the death of a loved one many types of overwhelming feelings occur. As a therapist, it is my belief that It is important for you to discover your ability to experience, understand and share such feelings. As you explore your relationship with the person who has passed and see what gifts you gave one another, and what lessons have been learned, you can put things in a larger perspective. Allowing yourself to find meaning in the relationship and see how it still lives within you is very important. Among other things, it is what I help my clients focus on.

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.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

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.

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.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.
