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.

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.

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 part of the human experience and sometimes comes in unexpected circumstances. We experience grief, not just when we lose someone in our lives, but also when we experience loss of any kind. Recovering from grief and loss takes how ever long it takes and every person on the planet is different. Start by giving yourself permission to take as long as you need to recover and give a lot of grace to yourself all along the way!

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.

Loss in our lives is generally painful, and yet a natural part of our humanity. We are meant to go through the grieving process and often need support and assistance from others. Grief and Loss counseling guides the person dealing with the hurt and pain of losing a loved one, or from the losses of abilities to accomplish things we were once able to do. The value of counseling in grief and loss is the understanding of how to mourn losses, to re-adjust and reorganize relationships in light of loss. Open expression of emotions, expectations and beliefs are encouraged, along with creating new realities and to remember loved ones without the pain attached to them.

The pain of grief always passes with expression, not avoidance. Counseling grants you permission to grieve. Grieving in the presence of another person is more restorative that grieving alone, but often times friends or family may unknowingly inhibit your grief. Counseling removes all expectations and pressures, allowing your grief to come on its own. Grief counseling makes room for emotions you may not expect, know how to explain, or may feel guilty about. Your expression of grief will ease your pain and make life seem livable again.

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.

Grief is hard. Grief is natural. Animals grieve. Grief is something we feel deep in our bodies and can be disorienting and destabilizing. Grief brings up questions about who we are, the world, the existence or goodness of God, and purpose and futility of life. Dealing with grief, especially when the loss is traumatic and unexpected, requires a slow and tender space to allow the grief to move through our body and to settle in our hearts with warmth and memory. I am here to help you grieve the loss of your loved one, experience, health , future or even your beloved pet. .

I offer a safe place for clients to tell the story about the loss in their life. I specialize in assisting people work through the loss of a loved one to drugs or alcohol. The ones left behind struggle with finding some kind of meaning or purpose in what seems to be such a senseless loss. I can help others come to a place of acceptance even if the addict/ alcoholic is still alive. This can sometimes be very painful, because there seems to be no closure. In addition, I am able to help with other forms of loss as well.

There are many challenges associated with grieving the loss of a loved one, whether to death or the loss of a relationship. One challenge is to adjust to the new reality of living without the loved one. There is no "right" way to grieve or process a loss. I help individuals navigate and process the stages of grief. I help individuals work through the four tasks of mourning (accept the reality of the loss, work through the pain of grief, adjust to life without the deceased, and maintain a connection to the deceased while moving on with life.

Grief is a powerful emotion which can color everything you see. Being able to process the loss and create for yourself a "new" life, incorporating the loss into your new life story is a path I will walk with you. Loss may change how you view yourself and your world. You may feel "things will never be the same"--but your life is enriched with the experience of the one you loved and lost. We will weave that into your new idea of your life and how you move on with living.
