Grief and loss inevitably leads to anger & sadness. Not surprisingly, it also can lead to depression and feelings of guilt. The latter is called irrational guilt, as most of us lack magical powers to cure dying people. Even if they mean the world to us. I would encourage my clients to express feeling of guilt and anger often unconscious related to the loss. The anger is often at the person who died. Of course, this is irrational anger in most cases, as we all are going to die. The anger is over losing someone we love, value. I would use clinical interventions that usher in the grieving process. This fosters coming to terms with and an acceptance of the loss.

Grief is about loss and the threat of loss. The stronger the bond between us and the person we have lost, the more we will hurt both physically and emotionally. When we are torn from a family member or friend, a part of us dies as well. Our natural need for attachment gets severed, often bringing the return of childhood fears. The world feels like a more dangerous place. As a result, we may feel out of control. We ache to have the loved person back. We know in the rational part of our minds that the person is not coming back, but it also seems impossible to let him go. We will remain emotionally conflicted until we can release our loved ones. Because letting go is so difficult, we must do it slow....

Grief and loss are a powerful experience with many aspects and dimensions. No two people go through it the same. And we have much loss in our lives, besides our loved ones, and each is a mourning experience. Loss is part of life, but it doesn't have to be only a negative experince. When worked with properly, such experiences can be transformative, and fuel your growth.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Home visits, Nassau County, NY 11023

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

All too often, grief is rushed away. Certainly, as we try to resume our lives after a loss, grief can catch us in its grip, limiting our ability to focus, function, and feel joy. Grief work in treatment is beneficial because it offers the opportunity to express and explore your feelings about the person lost, including some of the more complicated feelings that may be difficult to recognize. This helps promote healing and a sense of resolution and can be instrumental in regaining your balance after a loss.

John Kukor, Ed.D.

Psychotherapist

26 Aberdeen Road, New Hyde Park, New York 11040

A unique aspect of my psychotherapy practice is my readiness and willingness to discuss the issues of death and mortality. Life is precious and we deserve to live our lives fully, but death is an unavoidable fact of our lives. Many people can recall when they first learned about the fact of mortality in their childhood -- perhaps when a pet died, or we lost a grandparent or family member, or when some tragedy occurred. Witnessing a death or suffering the loss of a loved one can change some people's lives forever. In my practice I support my clients to come to terms with painful losses in their lives, and to regain their ability to live life fully, even in the face of their own mortality.

When you suffer a significant loss it can be one of the most devastating experiences of your life. My approach to grief counseling begins with providing sensitive and supportive therapy to enable you to mourn your loss and slowly being the transition to moving forward without your loved one. If your pain is so overwhelming that you find it difficult to successfully function after you have had a period of time to recover, we will explore the obstacles that interfere with you moving ahead and implement practical strategies to assist you with improving your quality of life.

Loss, and the grief associated with it usually equates to feelings of hopelessness and despair, sometimes accompanied by confusion and instability. My approach to the loss and grief experience is to help clients unravel and process a myriad of emotions. The goal here is to be supportive, explore and clarify the feelings relative to the individual's experience and restore equilibrium.

Grief in and of itself is not a diagnosis. However, many people find themselves seeking out professional help following the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of financial means. In grief and loss therapy you will benefit from a compassionate and warm environment where you can explore your grief with out judgement or fear. Grief is often isolating in our sessions not only will you be given the space to process and remember your loss, but also the tools and guidance necessary to eventually continue a fulfilling life.

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.

2345 University Ave, Bronx, New York 10468

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

People may experience many common symptoms related to grief and loss after losing a loved-one. Patients may also pass through stages of denial, anger and depression. Therapy can help an individual process these feelings and navigate these stages. A main goal when working with grief and loss may be to reach the period of acceptance (the time of closure). Talk therapy with a professional can be a very healthy approach to dealing with loss.

Have you recently experienced the loss of a loved one ? Regardless of how prepared one is the loss of a dear family member or friend can be a devastating and paralyzing experience. When there is attachment to a person over many years they become a part of our being. Their loss diminishes us and a part of us is forever changed. Experiencing the feelings of grief and loss alone can be overwhelming. Psychotherapy can ameliorate pain associated with deep grief and sorrow at the loss of a loved one.

Experiencing a loss of any kind can be especially traumatic. It is my belief that having a safe place to address issues related to this loss can be particularly beneficial. Each person deals with loss differently and I emphasize the need to allow each person to go through the process in order to successfully transition to a healthier and happier place, and versions of themselves.

People experiencing grief and loss are often invaded by mixed emotions and thoughts, including sadness, guilt, anger, feeling frozen or ambivalent, to mention some. Difficult but essential, is to make sense of the situation and find hope. I help clients understand that what has happened might not be altered, but that they can use their own powers and that of their support systems to master the present moment.

Losing a loved is one of life's most difficult challenges. Coping with the stages of grief and mixed emotions can be overwhelming. After losing a loved one, we often feel like pressing the pause button from our usual busy schedules that maintain despite our need to grieve. Therapy can provide a safe space for you to take the time to process your grief.

Merrick Avenue, Merrick, New York 11566

Any time we, or people close to us change, there is a loss; a loss of the familiar, perhaps a loss of what was known and comfortable. When you experience disappointment and need to change your expectations, there is a grief and loss process as well. Changing expectations is hard. The upside, though, is that doing so usually brings more contentment and peace, both for yourself and with others. I work to help people learn about their losses and find and define new expectations for their reality that will bring more joy to their lives.

Different people respond to grief and loss in many different ways. There is no right or wrong way to deal with loss. It is important to address the feelings that come up during the grieving process, whether they be painful memories or joyous ones. People often find that they work through unresolved issues from previous losses during this process. This helps people learn how to cope with death in a way that helps them move forward while being able to think about the person they've lost in a way that does not impact them like it did before.

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC,MS,MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Greenwich, Connecticut 06830

I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

When a "loss" occurs in life sometimes it is difficult to know where to turn. Friends and family although they may be well meaning are often unable to say the right words or do the right thing to comfort you. Perhaps you feel you will never get over this feeling - the hole in your heart that has been created by this loss. Although you may not have thought of entering counseling for this type of reason, it is in fact one of the most common reasons people seek help. Loss is traumatic and can really derail you in achieving your goals or feeling like yourself again. Although you may not think it possible, I can help you heal and get back on track.

Grief is associated with feelings of sadness, guilt, regret and anger, among others. Some people may experience a sense of meaninglessness and others can feel a sense of relief. Emotions are often surprising in their strength and different for everyone. There can be a sense of confusion on how to navigate and process grief. Often people will attach to unhealthy coping skills in order to manage their grief. Through therapy we will help clients process their grief and develop helping coping skills specific to each client to help deal with their loss.
