Elements from different psychotherapy modalities will most effectively address matters of loss, depression and role change related to loss of a loved one, unresolved or traumatic grief, loss of the individual's youth, opportunities, or functional abilities. I target associated somatic distress, guilt, thoughts of the deceased, irritation and anger, lack of motivation, identification phenomena. The goal is for you to assimilate the reality and meaning of death so that while not forgetting the person you lost, not relinquishing associated sadness, still missing your loved one, you may once again engage in pleasurable and satisfying relationships and activities.

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 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.

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.

Any time we, or people close to us change, there is a loss; a loss of the familiar, perhaps a loss of what was known and comfortable. When you experience disappointment and need to change your expectations, there is a grief and loss process as well. Changing expectations is hard. The upside, though, is that doing so usually brings more contentment and peace, both for yourself and with others. I work to help people learn about their losses and find and define new expectations for their reality that will bring more joy to their 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.

We all experience different types of losses over the course of our lives: loss of a loved one, of a job, of a role, or of a way of life. Everyone is affected differently by loss - often the same event can have very different meanings for different people. At the Lukin Center, we work with clients who are grieving a loss to help them identify what the loss means for them in order to work through and grow from their grief.

If you're suffering from the loss of a friend, relative or loved one, remember the quote that "We are the strongest in the broken places". Sometimes such a loss can hobble us and leave us feeling despairing, sad, depressed or anxious. I can help you (as I've helped so many others over time) to heal your pain and find your way through this rough patch to a new day.

Grief and loss can happen when you're young or old. Whenever it happens it can result in an ongoing depression that can hamper your life. I understand how devastating it can be and use various approaches to help you recover and return to your best self. Having been there myself and worked through my own grief and loss, I know what it takes to overcome the pain of grief and loss, and I will help you overcome your own pain and regain your own healthy balance.

Coping with the loss of someone or something you love is one of life's biggest challenges. We can help you get through your difficult or overwhelming situation by taking positive steps to deal with your feelings. Face-to-face sessions with your therapist will give you the support to understand that your grief is unique to you. Grief is a natural response to a loss and the more significant the loss, the more intense your grief will be.

Grief in and of itself is not a diagnosis. However, many people find themselves seeking out professional help following the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of financial means. In grief and loss therapy you will benefit from a compassionate and warm environment where you can explore your grief with out judgement or fear. Grief is often isolating in our sessions not only will you be given the space to process and remember your loss, but also the tools and guidance necessary to eventually continue a fulfilling life.

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.

Depression and grief are often confounded. Although the etiology may be different, the shared characteristic is the overwhelming sense of sadness and loss, which can be amenable to cognitive-behavioral techniques. Understanding of the progression through the stages of grief (typically Kubler-Ross) is usually helpful. I have had particular experience with patients who are immobilized by prolongued grieving.
