Experiencing a difficult loss is disorienting and can feel paralyzing. It can also bring up pain from the past that you thought was long gone, or cause you to question your view of the world. This is difficult but normal. It is important to talk about your grief with someone who really understands. I offer a safe place to work through your grief in your own way, without rushing, without having to put on a pretend smile or a brave face. I cannot undo your loss, but therapy can help you begin to find meaning in it, to make sense of the world again, and to find practical ways to cope.

The benefit of my approach for someone who is grieving and who has suffered a great loss is that I actively teach you how to accept things that cannot be changed. Only by achieving real acceptance can the individual carry on in life despite the loss. Acceptance in REBT does not mean liking or even denying the loss. Acceptance in REBT means to acknowledge that a great loss has occurred and to feel healthy negative feelings of sadness, even great sadness. The benefit that results is that one can still have some degree of enjoyment in life. One can function without guilt and do well in life despite having suffered a great loss. This is leverage over the loss, the thing that cannot be changed.

You can grow from grief. I can help you build the skills to better manage your loss. Grief has no infinite definition. There is grief associated with death. The death may be sudden, or it may be due to a long term illness. There is grief associated with relationship loss. This may be due to separation, divorce or loss of friendship. Catastrophic loss may be loss of a job, financial status, accident or medical illness. You can move on and grow from your experience.

Whether you are grieving due to the death of a loved one, ending of a significant relationship or the loss of the life you expected, it is a process. We all grieve for different reasons & in different ways, but it is important to allow yourself to grieve so that you can move forward. I'll work with you to understand the grief process including the stages of grief. An important part of the process is helping you identify & express the variety of feelings & thoughts you are likely experiencing. Often, human instinct is to avoid or numb what is painful. Unfortunately, this can prevent healing, extend the pain & create other problems. Instead, I'd like to help you find your way through the pain.

Grief and loss therapy should be more involved than just holding hands with a client. Grief and loss are actually forms of trauma. They can be treated actively by using techniques like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) that focuses on the traumatic event itself, and processes it until it becomes just a memory, rather than a trauma trigger. A recent client had flashbacks of holding her dying mother in her arms. After using EMDR techniques, she moved swiftly to the memories of how she helped her mother at the end of her life and her positive personal memories of their time together. Her friends were amazed how quickly she moved from painful thoughts to positive memories.

Loss, separation, and good-byes are all a part of life. These times can be forced upon us such as times of death, illness, and loss of employment. At other times it can be more of a celebration, as when we move to a new job, house, or school. Yet, all are times of reflection, remembering, loss, and permanent change; times that elicit a variety of emotional responses. If recent “good-byes” are heavier than you want, and would like someone to walk with you, to create a safe place to share your loss and reexamine your level of grief, please allow my Family Life Counseling to support you during this heavy time of change.

Grief is an appropriate response to loss. While grief is often connected with death, grief can also be felt during periods of change. While counseling can't change what you're going through, talking with a therapist can. I listen and provide a space for you to grieve and explore the meaning of loss. In therapy, I respect your experience and honor your feelings.

If you have recently lost a loved one, or find yourself still suffering from a past loss, therapy can help. Because grief is different for every person, you may find yourself feeling alone with your own emotions and thoughts about your loss. We will work together to understand what grieving means to you. We believe that grief and loss do not mean that you need to let go of the person and move on, rather that you need to find and understand your new relationship with the person that has died. During therapy you will share your memories, express your feelings in an empathetic environment, and learn how to cope with the challenges of losing a loved one.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. The length of time in which one struggles with grief varies depending on the individual - there is no right or wrong time frame for grief. WalkinTalkinTherapy assist with moving through the grieve with the assistance of nature and light exercise while combining talk therapy.
