The pain you experience after losing a loved one is an intense human experience that could make you feel abandoned, hopeless, and incapable of moving forward in life. In addition, sometimes there is grief connected to losing something: a job, an opportunity, a past that will not come back, a country you left behind. I can offer an empathic ear and listening to you as you ponder important questions at this point in your life: What does your grief say? What are the fears that accompany your grief and loss? Is there a way to move forward in life knowing that the present and future will be different because someone or something won't be there with you?

At Insight Psychological Group, one of our specialty areas is grief/bereavement counseling. We offer counseling for individuals and groups to help people move forward through the grieving process. Our experience includes counseling those who have gone through the death of a spouse, parent, or sibling. Other issues we focus on include coping with a miscarriage or a still birth. Our goal is to help people move through the process, rather than “get over it.” There are other types of loss that we offer counseling for as well. These can include divorce or the loss of a job, for example.

Grief Counseling Grief counseling is a journey with many turns in the road. One moment you can’t imagine how you can go on and the next, it’s seems like maybe the cloud is beginning to lift.

Grief counseling more than any other kind of counseling as blend of spirituality and practical reality, In our work together we will work with both parts of the healing; how to gain some perspective that can help us to go on and practical things that can be done to help with deal with painful difficulties in relating to the deep sense of loss.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

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.

Grief and loss can come in many forms. While most people think of death and dying, loss can be a separation or divorce, loss of a job, retirement, moving, seeing a child off to college, losing weight. There are so many more that I could list. All of these have an impact on us and how we view ourselves and our world. They shake us, they make us feel a bit less steady. It requires a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, understanding and hopeful.

Grief is the normal and natural emotional reaction to loss. My guidance and experience will help you more toward your intellect and deal with your broken heart. We can work together and deal with what remains emotionally incomplete at the time of a death, a divorce, or other losses. I am trained to work within your inner self to understand your self destruction, and build self confidence.

Grief Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Within driving distance of Upper Nyack

Grieving the loss of loved one can be complicated if our valued identity and/or our equanimity was tied to that person given diffuse boundaries. When we overly depend on people regulate our emotions, self esteem or self confidence, then being without them can leave us angry, bereft, empty, etc. In psychotherapy we can rewrite the specious narrative that you were joined at the hip because you could not survive without that person. By internalizing what is offered by the therapist to enhance your self-reliance, you are then free to come to terms with the reality of loss of your loved one and internalize the relationship that is over. That person can now live on inside of you.

At times grief can be all encompassing and take away one’s sense of meaning, place in the world ,or hope in the future. I work with people to find small openings from where you can see that, although it may feel like it, grief is not a static state which will be here forever but something that can be moved through in order to create meaning in life after loss.
