Grief is a curious phenomenon. The more we cared about a person the greater the grief appears to be. The hard truth of grief is that there is no "getting over it" and "moving on" from it. It is always there. Our choice is simple do we want to be our foe or our friend? For if we choose to make grief our friend then we will inevitably be kind and compassionate to it, which is to our benefit because it is part of us.

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.

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.

My experience working at Children's Hospital of Dallas and Methodist Hospital has helped me to understand that the stages of grief are not linear, but circular. You can be very sad one day and angry the next. Sometimes, all of the stages in the same day. Learn to work through each of these stages as they occur (and reoccur) to move to a place of greater peace. Many look for relief from the feelings- learn healthier ways to engage the process without relying on unhealthy fixes or coping mechanisms.

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 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 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.

Although it is a normal part of life, each person experiences loss differently. Professional counseling can help you deal with that loss, and the normal process of grieving to help you through the pain of loss. Giving a "voice" to your thoughts and feelings often works like relief valve, giving you the peace you need to face your loss.

Are you grieving? When you lose someone who is dear to you, it is helpful to have a safe, reliable person who you can talk to. Many folks have feelings to work through, and it is useful to process these with another person, especially when you are feelng the isolation of a loss. As you learn to accept your healthier emotional processes, you may then learn to allow yourself freedom to grieve in your own way.

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 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.

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 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!

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.

Many who grieve find processing their loss in traditional talk therapy to be difficult, even impossible. We have found that neurofeedback can help in the early stages of grief, loss, and trauma to facilitate healing that can eventually lead to more traditional talk therapy or spiritual direction. Neurofeedback gives the brain more flexible options and frees resources to be able to process things that may have been too painful or difficult to talk about.
