Carolyn Ratley, LMFT, CMHS

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2002 65th Ave W, Tacoma, Washington

Loss is something that can be very difficult and confusing to go through. I have worked with children and young adults through this process to find healing and joy again. Grief and loss looks different for each person but you can find tools to help you get through to the other side. Grief and loss in children is a very difficult thing and I am honored to help children and their families find healing, understanding and joy again. I have a lot of experience helping children through grief and loss as well as equipping parents to help their children as well.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

Life Path Counseling, PLLC - 2367 Tacoma Ave. S., Tacoma, Washington

We examine the issues surrounding your grief and or loss, and then look at ways you can gain some healing. Much of this is through insight, reframing, exercises by way of homework, and other ideas that come from you. The process of moving through grief and loss takes time, and its important to be compassionate with yourself and allow yourself experience the span of emotions that are likely to occur.

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.
