All individuals, if they live enough years, experience the death of a significant other. However, not all bereavement occurs due to a loss from death, yet the emotional pain can be as severe if not worse. Separation, divorce, ambiguous loss, chronic or terminal illness, or loss of status (e.g., financial or social) also involve a grieving process for individuals, couples or families. Many times, the repercussions of a loss are manifested in other presenting problems, such as school or behavioral problems in children and relational discord in couples. Working this through in a safe therapeutic environment will help you develop a new identity, and reestablish balance in you relationships.

Loss is a most difficult event in any person's life and it can paralyze to the point of complete isolation and inactivity. The grieving process can be a torturous one and one that robs a person of their life force. The process of grieving must be respected as a powerful one that resolves at its own pace. The therapist cannot force this process, but rather joins with the client in the journey of recovery.

People experience grief and loss from many things... the illness of a loved one, a death, the loss of one's health, wealth, or job. People move to different parts of the country and experience deep loss because of this. People often overlook chronic loss, which can be one of the worst types of loss. This is one has an ongoing experience of loss, like waiting for a loved one to die, or expecting to lose your home at any time. Talking about these feelings and coming to understand yourself int erms of the losses can make them easier to live with. In addition, by using Internal Family Systems Therapy, sometimes the intensity of the pain can be lessened, even if the loss cannot be changed.

I support clients in grief work by validating their experiences, sharing their pain, normalizing and educating them about the stages and transitions after loss and helping them re-center themselves in their lives to find purpose and meaning. Clients need compassion and a witness to share the story of the loss and often struggle to redefine their lives without the person who has died. I help them to work on that redefinition as they shift between and among the stages of loss.

Dealing with grief and loss are two of the five big emotionally distressing situations one can find themselves dealing with. It can be something big, such as the loss of a loved one to something smaller such as losing a family heirloom or an opportunity to get into a college or specific job. All if left unattended can lead to more severe situations. Learn to build your own psychological first aid kit in order to prevent or lessen the effects of smaller emotional "cuts" or allow yourself to sit with someone who can help you as your process a larger life event (death, chronic health issue) making it more manageable and returning you to a level of functionality before it occurred.

Everyone experiences grief and loss differently and their journey is equally different. By providing a safe, compassionate environment, we would explore the nature of your grief and loss, assess the impact on you and your life, and develop ways to improve your daily functioning. The process is one of honoring what has come to be and learning to move through feelings and adjust to this new circumstance. I utilize a combination of psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral strategies.

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.
