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.

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 and loss are a powerful experience with many aspects and dimensions. No two people go through it the same. And we have much loss in our lives, besides our loved ones, and each is a mourning experience. Loss is part of life, but it doesn't have to be only a negative experince. When worked with properly, such experiences can be transformative, and fuel your growth.

Grief Counselor

Tracy Schaperow, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Riverhead

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.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

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
