Although grief is a normal reaction to loss, getting over a broken heart may be difficult. I support my clients as they move beyond their loss, whether it's death, divorce or the numerous other common life experiences which are losses such as moving, graduation, reitement, holidays, empty nest or health changes. I will help you find new meaning in life as you deal with the many feelings that grief brings. As I work with you to recover from your grief, you will learn some skills that allow you to deal with loss directly. Recovering from grief takes courage and it's so worth the effort as you begin to live more wholeheartedly!

Grief may arise due to the loss of a loved one, a break-up of an emotionally intimate relationship, loss of a pet, loss of a job, and many other life events. Everyone experiences grief and loss in their own unique way. It is often accompanied by sadness, irritability, guilt, regret, anger and many other feelings. Whether you are experiencing any of these feelings or symptoms, or simply are having difficulty in your daily functioning, I can help to wade through the stressors causing you grief by teaching coping skills that you can use on your own.

Grief is a difficult issue for all of us because it looks differently for everyone. However, there are some common themes in how we grieve as men and women. If you or someone you know is grieving and finding it difficult to acknowledge their grief or know what to do next, therapy is the best place to explore how they might grieve fully and in so doing, be able to move forward in life.

Moving through grief and loss is a process. Often loss creates a change and that change can affect you on many levels. Your loss can impact you physically, emotionally; it may alter your identity, your dreams and leave you with thoughts of what should have or what would have been. When I work people experiencing grief and loss, we begin by witnessing the loss, learning what it means to you and how it has changed your life. Depending upon the loss and the person, we will find ways to support and help you manage your pain and your life as you move through the process.

How do you move on when desire, hope, a loved one, or the something core to you has been lost? I am hesitant to answer that question in words because I think that there are no cognitive solutions to loss. You may have experienced this. In some ways, the only way to work with the grief is to go straight through it. It is a difficult journey, one you may have just entered or one you may have found yourself in for years. I offer a caring hand in your journey through it.

Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time. Some people recover from grief and resume normal activities very quickly. Others may feel better after many months or eve a year. And sometimes people continue to grieve for years without seeming to improve or find relief even temporarily. Grief can also be complicated by other conditions and circumstances. No one way of grieving is better than any other. Each experience of grief is unique, complex, and personal, and our therapists will tailor treatment to meet the specific needs of each person. Using evidence based therapeutic approaches, your counselor will help you move through this process.

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.

Working through grief and loss, while respecting needed defenses can take months if not years, but can enhance the quality of your life. We will respect defenses and consider a variety of emotions, which may include relief, anger, sadness, regret, fear and loneliness with my help. It is my strong believe that this process entails work and time, but can lead to personal growth, which can enhance your knowledge and appreciation of yourself and therefore enhance your capacity to be empathic with others.

Suffering a painful loss and working through grief are much more complicated processes than most people understand. When we are hit by a reality we would have never chosen, our pain and anguish can not only overwhelm us at times, but also those around us. Sometimes people who care deeply for us do not know what to say, and may themselves feel inadequate and so uncomfortable with our pain they want us to “hurry up and feel better.” But grief cannot be rushed; it has its own rhythm. Successfully working through our losses usually requires fully experiencing our pain and our anger. Women often shut down the anger, while men will often shut down the pain. Therapy provides a safe place for both.

Just as each loss is unique, each grieving experience is unique. From the loss of a family member, job, marriage, physical function, or other, it is hard to anticipate grief or prepare for it. Through learning about grief itself and fully "sitting-in" the emotions that occur, grief is meant to be experienced. Preventing or interrupting this experience can add length or permanently prolong negative effects.

Grief and loss are very challenging. The difficulty of processing these complex emotions is compounded due to the fast paced nature of our lives pushing us forward, not providing the space and time for the necessary reflection. In order to move forward, we need time to grieve what has been lost. Our work begins with addressing the loss currently burdening your heart. It continues with examining the depth of the loss and its various levels of impact on your life. For example, losing one's mother could also mean the loss of a confidant, a cheerleader, a friend, an advocate etc. Finally, we will work together through the stages of your grief, supplementing with reading material when necessary.

You're sad and you don't know why. You cry and are confused. There are areas in your life where you have lost much and you don't know how to grieve it, or where to go to get help. You've heard well meaning friends tell you the pad answers, but you really just want someone to hold you and make it go away. Therapy is a sense of "emotional holding" that helps those feelings make more sense and as opposed to those feelings going away, we learn how to live within our grief and loss when we explore it.

Suffering loss can result in a mix of strong emotions such as sadness, anger, confusion, and regret. I lost my mother in my twenties, so I can relate to the overbearing range of emotions you might deal with. You can benefit from my first-hand experience, along with learned counseling techniques that can help you find peace. Personally, I learned that my feelings of sadness and loss meant that I loved my mother, and that she had a stronger impact on my life than I realized. I’ll always miss my mother, but I’ve found ways to deal with the loss by honoring her memory, and helping others who are struggling in this way. Talking with someone who understands can help you tremendously.

Learning to live again after the death of a loved one can be an overwhelming and painful experience. Together we’ll explore tasks or goals that you can accomplish allowing you to move through grief, heal and rebuild your life. Often grief holds emotions that need to be expressed so they are not internalized only to become physical or emotional problems later on. If you wish, we can explore how Scripture encourages you to make meaning out of death and cherish memories of your loved one.

I have been honored to work with many people who have lost a dear relationship. This is a pain where the circumstances cannot change, the loss is real and fundamentally changes the person who has experienced that loss. However, not all is lost and you still have a life to live. Often, people need someone outside of their friend/family group to process through the waves of anger and denial, guilt and fear. I like to remind my clients that grief will cycle through, but with each cycle they are growing stronger, standing on the gift of their loved ones' life and honoring them in their healing. You can heal and your loved one will not be forgotten.

I seek to provide an environment for you to share the various stages of grief you may be facing, and in doing so, I journey alongside you in this painful season. At times I may recommend some reading that may be helpful to you as well as help you identify stages of grief that are commonly experienced by others.

The emotional suffering you experience after the loss of a loved one can feel overwhelming and relentless. Impacting every part of who you are. There is no set amount of time to grieve and sometimes it can take more time then our loved ones or even our selves can bear. Having a therapist to help you work through the painful emotions and be support is a significant part of the grieving process.

Despite what some have said, grieving an important loss rarely unfolds in predictable stages or by a knowable timetable. Sometimes we can feel stuck in our loss, as if we will never be able to move forward again. In a safe, supportive setting, we can explore all that is bound up with our grief and in this way begin to heal. Part of that healing comes from the deepening discovery of our own experience; and part of the healing comes from no longer being alone in it. Then the loss can be tolerated and integrated into our world so that we can begin to venture out and grow again.
