I believe loss is a major issue in life and every loss brings up past losses. I work closely with individuals with all past losses to resolve current losses. This can result in relieve from extreme symptoms of loss.I have an extensive background in working with individuals with grief and loss issues from childhood also which is important in resoling current losses.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Spring Valley

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

A loss can stop you in your tracks or some people report that they feel like they are "a witness" to their life and not a participant. We will work together on grieving your loss while also working on allowing you to become a participant in your life again. Having a dedicated space in your week to allow you to express your grief can allow you function at a higher level. Grieving does not have a timetable and it is not the same for everyone. Everyone grieves at their own pace and in their own way and we will work together at your speed and in the way that makes you most comfortable.

People may experience many common symptoms related to grief and loss after losing a loved-one. Patients may also pass through stages of denial, anger and depression. Therapy can help an individual process these feelings and navigate these stages. A main goal when working with grief and loss may be to reach the period of acceptance (the time of closure). Talk therapy with a professional can be a very healthy approach to dealing with loss.

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.

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.

Whether we endure loss due to changes in life roles, the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one, grief impacts all aspects of our being. The process of grief is one of reconstructing the meaning of our lives and relationships. We heal by taking time to focus on our loss, sharing our pain with someone we trust, and attending to the meaning of our loss in the present moment. I will walk with you, bear witness to your struggle and help you move through the debilitating maze of grief. When you allow yourself to grieve fully, the experience of loss has the power to bring you into deeper connection with yourself and feel the beauty, mystery and and meaning of life in a new way.

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.

Recovering from grief is never an easy process and nothing can replace the essential element: time. However, in therapy I can give you tools and techniques to help you manage pain, accept loss, and open up to life again. When you are overwhelmed by grief, it can seem like the pain will never depart. Whatever you do, though, don't give up. With the right help, the time will come when you can find the proper balance between mourning and facing your own future.

When a "loss" occurs in life sometimes it is difficult to know where to turn. Friends and family although they may be well meaning are often unable to say the right words or do the right thing to comfort you. Perhaps you feel you will never get over this feeling - the hole in your heart that has been created by this loss. Although you may not have thought of entering counseling for this type of reason, it is in fact one of the most common reasons people seek help. Loss is traumatic and can really derail you in achieving your goals or feeling like yourself again. Although you may not think it possible, I can help you heal and get back on track.

There are four phases of grief which you'll go through when you've lost someone, before you can move to the next part of your life. There's shock. Then the pain of realizing who you've lost, what he or she meant to you, a gut-struggle about how you'll move on without him or her. Next comes "bargaining," a way your brain protects you from too much suffering. Whether it's to your God or another spiritual connection of yours, you may try asking for the lost person's return if you do this or that "good" thing. Finally, as your loss becomes real to you, comes Acceptance. Over my 20 years of practice, I've guided patients gently through each of these difficult stages of loss and personal growth.

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
