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 and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

Grief is a normal reaction to a loss. . . The loss can be, of a loved one, self worth, integrity, a dream, anything that leaves us with an empty spot. Even the pandemic we are currently experiencing can be seen as a loss and generate any of the grief emotional states. .. It can show up as denial, depression, anxiety, fear, guilt, anger, in any combination, and people often see these feelings as problems.... In fact, as bad as they feel, as painful as they are, they are part of the solution. Counseling can help with healing, and in doing so, ease the painful days.

I am trained as a Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy (PGDT) provider by the Center for Complicated Grief at Columbia University. The structured protocol addresses "stuck grief" that is marked by an attachment fissure that causes rumination, excessive guilt, loss of former interests and hopelessness 6 months and longer (sometimes many years) after a significant loss. PGDT is evidence-based and has a over a 70 percent efficacy rate for movement into adaptive grief.

I work with clients facing grief and loss by allowing them to work through the often confusing and overwhelming feelings of shock, denial, bargaining, sadness and acceptance. The stages of grief do not fit a linear pattern and it is normal to vacillate between feelings and sometimes to regress. Together, we sort through the emotions in order to move towards a path of acceptance and the allowance of future joy.

Life is full of sad, unexplainable events which cause us to experience loss and to grieve. At times, words are helpful, but sometimes nonverbal expression is important for our healing. Through conversation, emotional expression, art, sandtray work, and understanding the stages of grief, clients are offered assistance to face issues and to recover.

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.

Grieving a loved one, an unfortunate experience that has occurred, or even a hopeful experience that has not occurred, can bring about many emotions. The stages of grief can be complex. I would like to assist you in a nonjudgmental, caring, and therapeutic environment. I use an eclectic approach to counseling. This means that I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches. In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals.

Life changes so quickly and sometimes we come to loose loved ones and loved relationships before we were ready. Together we can move from the pain of the loss to begin to see life in a new light, we work towards moving forward without forgetting the important lessons from the past. Sometimes we grieve the loss of loved ones, but sometimes our losses can be a relationship, a job, a friend and through all those we need to find a way of coming to terms and continue living. Let me help you find again a reason to keep going.

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 there—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.
