Research now shows us that there are not set stages and ways to grieve the loss of a loved one. A person's ability to move on is based on their own resilience. Making meaning of one's life can help. Whether through writing a narrative, recalling fond memories or making new ones through creating new interests, connection helps with loss. Therapy gives a welcome space to share the many feelings that come along with letting go.

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.

My approach to grief and loss therapy begins with understanding each client's unique experience of loss. I help clients accept their loss and experience its sadness. We then explore their range of feelings, including anger, denial, guilt, loneliness, and depression and develop a customized treatment plan to help them return to optimal functioning.

Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.

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.

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.

Grief is an individualized internal experience.There is no right way or right amount of time to grieve. Dialoguing about life and death, disappointments and future opportunities allows each person the space to grieve and also recreate their lives from this moment on. In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I assist my clients as they experience the emotional pain and the full recognition of their loss. I support them as they build the emotional resilience to overcome their grief, turning their energy into future opportunities.

It's so important for those who have experienced a major loss, either through death or divorce, to allow themselves the full breadth of their emotional reactions, to feel the pain they're going through without judgment or haste. Grieving is a complex process, and the emotional experience may swing from great intensity to some sense of peace, and back again, with no predictability. I will help and support you in this very very painful time of your life. We will look at how these lost relationships affected and shaped you, and work toward helping you begin to open to life again, at a pace that suits your rhythm of adjusting to this major life transition. www.ThriveTherapydoc

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.

Grieving is a process. People don't realize we go through grieving often, the loss of: pets, friendships, relationships, youth, and many other things, all take their toll. You don't have to grieve alone. Together we will process the loss(es) and help you come to a place of peace so that you can move forward. I am very creative and often use art and play therapy to help express emotions that may not have words.
