How individuals and families cope with dying, death, grief, loss, and bereavement is unique to each individual. Those who are bereaved experience grief, or a person's response or reaction to loss, which encompasses physical, psychological, social, and spiritual components. Historically, many grief counselors and grief therapists have chosen to follow the popular "grief counseling theory of the time." However, in the twenty-first century there are constantly changing theories regarding grief and loss, and new challenges and questions raised by researchers, clinicians, and the bereaved themselves regarding what is or is not helpful during the bereavement process.

Losses are a part of life, whether of a loved one or a lost job or missed opportunity, and yet can be very difficult to navigate through and find our way back to ourselves and our “new normal.” Having a compassionate and skilled professional to journey with you can be very helpful in processing losses, remembering loved ones or lost dreams, and understanding the meanings this loss holds for you. I am experienced with supporting individuals and families in a caring manner as they determine how to journey through grieving in a way that meets each one's unique needs and experiences, including possible spiritual concerns.

Grief and loss can throw one into a tail spin. There are five basic stages to grief: denial, anger, bargaining, sadness/depression, acceptance. Once the stage of acceptance for the loss is reached readjustment to the new situation occurs. This does not mean one will stay in this acceptance stage, such that an individual can re-experience anger or sadness again.

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.

I believe there is no right or wrong way to grieve and there is no time limit to how long you are allowed to struggle for. The individual you are grieving may be gone, but that relationship with them continues. My goal is to allow you space to grieve in the way you need for as long as you need while helping you function in a way that works for you.

Grieving is the intense pining or yearning for the loss of anything; for example it could be a job, a particular time, your health, an object or a person. One can feel disbelief, shock, fear, anger, frustration, sadness, abandoned, hopeless, shame and/or humiliation. How is the loss affecting you? Any loss can be traumatic, life altering and difficult to cope with. The pain may never completely go away but it can be managed in a healthy way.

Many of my clients have a very difficult time assimilating a deep loss in their lives especially when they have lost a dearly beloved family member. At the time of their loss they require immense support and a "listening" ear". They often fear that they will never recover. What I offer them is some hope for their future and I suggest some techniques to them of how to "take the long view." I also assist them in finding relevant resources in their local community that can support them through the following months and years. I remind them that the last thing that their departed loved one would want is for them to lose their motivation and zest. I empower them to go on fully living.
