If you love, you grieve. Grief is a normal part of life, but too often, we are tempted to rush this experience and get it over with. Melanie believes it is best if grief is acknowledged and dealt with, within a culturally-sensitive approach that's right for you. By working through their feelings of loss, clients can actually grow, and avoid or minimize further complications, such as anger, irritability, tearfulness, distraction, lethargy, self-medicating or other unhealthy coping attempts.

Grief is a normal process associated with a significant personal loss. The loss may be the death of a loved one, a divorce, or a job. The grieving process varies from one person to the next. At Christ Centered Counseling we understand there can be factors that hinder the grieving process. These hindrances could result in an unhealthy emotional, mental, and/or physical state of being. Grief counseling is about clients learning skills that will assist them with healing and restoration, as they work through the grieving process.

Grieving the loss of a loved one, whether through death or the end of a relationship is likely the most painful emotional experience you will have in your lifetime. The very things you do to cope with grief, may prolong it. For example, trying to move past it too quickly or distracting yourself from the pain may actually create more pain. What's more, is that when you suffer a profound loss, other losses you haven't fully grieved may come to the surface. It can feel overwhelming. Despite all the pain of grief, it can be enormously healing. Facing the pain of your life can open pathways in your psyche that enriches your experience. You don't have to face it all by yourself.

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 thereā€”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.

Sometimes, when you're upset about a major loss in your life - loss of a relative, a relationship, or even a beloved pet - other people can't understand that you can't just "Get over it!" I will help you deal with the situation so you can move on with your life. By listening to what you say in a non-judgmental manner, I can help you find a solution that works for you, and gets you back into your life.

Everyone responds to loss differently. You may feel that you should be getting over your feelings, or may be ashamed to show your true feelings to your family and friends. Working through grief and loss with me will result in preventing the negative physical and emotional side effects that comes from ignoring the painful emotions. I understand that everyone responds to loss differently. In grief therapy I work with the individual and the family to promote compassion and avoid divisions among family members.
