Clients experiencing loss are often at a cross roads, their life continues to move on but someone is missing from their day to day experiences. These clients may be struggling to understand how to live their life without the person they have lost. I like to work with clients as they learn how they can begin to move forward and live their life so they can honor and cherish their loved one's memory.

Grief is a reaction to loss that encompasses a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It is experienced differently by each person according to his or her culture, background, gender, beliefs, personality, and relationship to the deceased. I work with clients to express the full range of feelings that may be present including sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, anger, and a sense of meaninglessness. Clients become more comfortable with their loss over time; the amount of time varies by person.

In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.

Grief is often a deeply painful response to the loss of a loved one, including pets. The death of a loved one is often the most common way we think of loss, but many other significant changes in our lives can involve loss and therefore grief. Everyone experiences loss and grief at some time. It is a natural and normal experience. And the more significant the loss, the more intense the grief is likely to be. The experience of grief can leave you feeling alone, anxious, depressed, lonely, fatigued, and confused. However, a loss can also lead to a new way of thinking and perceiving life. Each of us experiences, reacts and expresses grief differently. For example, one person may withdraw and feel....

I process with the client verbally the loss in regards to family of origin whether it be relatives, close friends, or work relationships. Over a period of sessions, the grief becomes less and less, and the client is able to concentrate on moving forward and letting go, and return to an active lifestyle both emotionally and physically. I provide for a safe environment that leads to healing, support, and empathy.

Does the moment of loss replay over and over in your mind, even months or years after the death? Do you find it hard to think about the good times without thinking about your loss? Do you feel like you are stuck and can’t move forward in your life? Are regret and guilt crippling your life? Healing grief and loss is about getting to a place of perfect peace where you can 1) think about your loved one's death without it being an open wound, 2) think about the good times you shared with them and truly enjoy each memory and 3) honor their life and the relationship you shared by developing a network of relationships that can continue to feed and nourish your soul as they once did.

I incorporate Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's stages of Grief Therapy.Dr. Ross believes that we must go through denial, anger and acceptance I also believe in the near death experiences of many patients who share experiences in their after life or what happens when you die. Believing this life is only the beginning ,I incorporate a religious perspective with the patients faith and writings into therapy. I am of the belief that all faiths are from one and the same God.

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.

Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.
