I remember many years ago learning in graduate school about a technique for rapidly helping people to deal with the pain of loss while retaining the memory of their loved one. To this day I remember the specifics of how to help people w/this therapeutic approach. I also utilize individual and family therapy models to help grieving people. Please do not hesitate to contact me for therapy or a referral.

Each person has their own way of coping with loss, whether it be the death of a family member or friend, or loss of a marriage or relationship. There are so many factors that play into how loss effects us, including but not limited to; the manor in which the loss occurred ( i.e. long term illness, sudden unexpected death), the relationship (i.e. parent, sibling, child), the quality of relationship (I.e. healthy and close, distanced and strained), and how you and your family of origin have dealt with loss in the past. I have been successfully helping clients gain the insight and tools to cope with their grief and loss throughout my entire career.

Grief is a complex process. While it may feel lonely, you do not have to go through this process without someone by your side. When dealing with grief and loss concerns, I focus on the thoughts and emotions that are being brought up. Healing indeed takes time, but seeking therapy to cope with grief can greatly help the process. Assessing parts of the process such as anger, denial and bargaining are often part of the treatment plan for grief and loss.

I incorporate Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's stages of Grief Therapy.Dr. Ross believes that we must go through denial, anger and acceptance I also believe in the near death experiences of many patients who share experiences in their after life or what happens when you die. Believing this life is only the beginning ,I incorporate a religious perspective with the patients faith and writings into therapy. I am of the belief that all faiths are from one and the same God.

You know that life has little meaning without relationships, but you struggle to keep them alive, you struggle making them in the first place. I can help, together we will develop a plan to find the relationships you have been longing for.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than emotional pain.

Grief and loss are experienced when we lose someone significant in our lives. Grief and loss can also be experienced when a special relationship ends, when a hope or dream is dashed or when we find ourselves in a situation we cannot cope with. Each of us has a different way of coping, and some appear to do better than others. So how do we know if we need help? Are there days you really struggle? Is it affecting your relationship with others?. Have you lost zeal for life? Do you find you can't talk to people you know about your pain? I will listen. With compassion and support I will help you find your inner strength to endure and grow from your sadness.

I believe that work plays a large role in how we perceive ourselves and others around us. The stages of change can generally apply to not only the loss of a loved one, but the loss of work, loss of a function, a child's innocence, and a multitude of other factors that greatly inhibit people from moving on in their lives. It's important to find the meaning through suffering and understand that we all have the freedom to make -sometimes undesirable- choices in our lives

I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we have to go through. Sometimes we not only grieve them, but we grieve the relationship we wish we'd had with them. There can be many complicated feelings and not everyone experiences loss the same way. Using experiential therapy we can explore what we would want to say to them if they were still here, and process all the emotions that go with it.

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 and Loss is one of the most difficult things you are probably experiencing. Our approach is to help you process what is going on and how you can move forward. This process is individualized and we will work together each step of the way. There is no limit on grief so if you have heard "Get over it" or "Why is it taking you so long to get past this", you know you are talking to the wrong people about your feeling. You need someone who understand and can help you process these feelings, not someone who is going to make you feel shameful about your feelings. It is important to understand you do not need to do this alone.

When we lose someone we love, it feels like we have lost a part of ourselves. Something within us has been torn out, leaving a hole that we easily imagine will never heal. The pain can be profound, the feelings of helplessness, or regret, or guilt overwhelming. Having a partnership where you can talk through these feelings can make a huge difference not only in how quickly and how well you are able to move through the process of grieving, but also how you ultimately are able to frame the experience and your memories of the person lost into the narrative of your own self and life as you move forward. What you carry with you afterward is just as important as surviving the hurt of the loss.

Have you recently lost a loved one? Whether expected or not, grief over your loss is a natural experience. Still, it can become more consuming than we like, more disruptive than our lives can reasonably tolerate. Perhaps you feel a great deal of guilt, as well as anguish. In the warmth and security of the therapeutic environment, I can help you experience your grief and loss in a healthy, respectful, yet enriching way. In doing so, you can honor the person you have lost, while also re-engaging in the other important aspects of your life. I look forward to being your partner through this challenging time.

As a psychologist, I can give people the tools to deal with grief and loss, as well as to discuss the topic in ways geared toward working through the loss. Grief and loss are both issues that present themselves during the time of loss, but sometimes unresolved grief leads to changes in a person's life years or even decades later. I especially encourage people dealing with the latter to call me. Working through a distant loss can be extremely powerful. And understanding how it still affects you can feel good, as well as to open doors that were previously closed in life.

What does one say when there is nothing to be said? Grief takes many forms and is born from various losses. There is "fresh" grief and "old" familiar grief. Grief counseling is a creative process for me.There is no right way to do it. Helping someone through their grief depends on how recent their loss was. The loss could be a lifetime partner, a friend, a pregnancy, a parent, a pet or the worst--a child. I start with encouraging my patients to scream, be silent, cry, or just talk. I believe they know themselves better than I ever will and they have inherent wisdom regarding what they need to do in order to wade through their grief. I provide a place and a person (me) to ease the way.

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.

Grief and loss are processes and like many processes, they change and transform. What feels like heartbreak to you at first, may be transformed through our work together, into a heart that has an even greater capacity for love and connection. I believe that heartbreak is necessary to break open and expand the heart's horizons. You will never forget those who you have held so dear and lost, but through our work together, you will make peace with those losses and appreciate the gifts of those relationships.
