There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

Grieving and loss is part of life. While we all share aspects of this life event, it is an individual experience and needs to be addressed with care and respect. It is an opportunity for individual growth and it can have an impact on our relationships to others including siblings and spouses as well as many aspects of our life including the spiritual dimension of our being and our questioning of the meaning of life. Sometimes it is useful to work with narrative, memories and dreams. There is not one way to feel, to act or to be as one grieves. It just is.

Grief can be all-consuming, a heavy gray cloud that envelops us and leaves us feeling disoriented and alone. We lose sight of the precious things around us, and instead find ourselves stung by grief's bitter winds and blinded by its dark fog. It is in those times that we need a helping hand to reach out to us through the gray, and walk alongside us when we don't know where our next step will land. Counseling is that walking alongside. Through therapy together, we learn how to be with both grief and life in tandem. We learn how to hold our sadness tenderly and with loving kindness, while also holding the joys and gifts of the present moment.

Working with a compassionate, kind and attuned therapist during times of grief and lost can make a significant difference. Focus can be on validating feelings, connecting with the happier memories (and reducing the traumatic memories) and acquiring coping skills. Overwhelming grief and loss is understandable and going through the grieving process with a professional who cares can be an important step.

Grief and loss are a natural - though painful - part of life. It's normal to be sad and to grieve. Unfortunately, our fast paced society often wants us to medicate and move on more quickly than might really be healthy or good for us. I encourage people to have patience with themselves and the process of grief, and to allow themselves to fully feel their feelings so that they can truly heal. Paradoxically, allowing full expression of the sadness, anger, and other emotions often does allow a person to move forward more quickly. I also always assess carefully to make sure that "normal" sadness has not spiraled into a true clinical depression, and I encourage prompt treatment if it does.

To help a client cope through grief and loss, I sometimes use the example of how an oyster forms a pearl. The oyster ingests a grain of sand that causes pain, and which cannot be removed or dissolved (just like we cannot eliminate the pain of missing a loved one). So the oyster begins to encase the grain of sand with layers of calcium-like substance, that makes the grain of sand easier to carry and hold, without the rough edges. Coping through grief and loss can involve learning how to unpack, experience, and adjust how we carry the pain. Therapy can help you soften and encase the pain of loss, forming a "pearl" around it that is easier to carry with you, and perhaps make it more precious.

In your grief and sense of loss, my primary job is to be able to truly listen to you. To have the strength to really understand and feel the change in your life, and to have the courage to absorb and empthaize with that loss, not to protect myself from it. Hopefully, with that help, you will be provided the forum in which to begin to adjust to your loss.

Grief affects our lives in many different ways. Often we are not aware of its impact physically, emotionally or spiritually or how a loss has impacted us even years later. REACH Counseling Services offers support that encompasses all these dimensions and understand that grief and loss can be healed and that life can move forward with hope and healing. We use a variety of approaches to help you deal with loss and grief.

When one person in a family experiences grief or loss, everyone is affected. Sometimes an entire family struggles to adjust to a death or a cross-country move or to a divorce. In any of these cases, a person's need for comfort can conflict with their emotions, causing confusion and conflict among people who are trying to support one another. In addition, children and teenagers can react to loss very differently than do adults, so the signs of pain or distress are not obvious. If there has been a loss for someone in your family or there is an impending loss (planned separation due to marital conflict, children leaving for college), I would welcome the opportunity to help.

Grief is the normal reaction to loss, but our society often reacts to grief like it is an illness, and the griever does not get social acceptance and support, so that help and guidance in finding ones way through this difficult, sometimes lonely, passage way is helpful. Sometimes, however, grief is complicated and gets stuck and grief counselling or grief therapy is then especially needed allow you to mourn and restore yourself. I am a Fellow in Thanatology, the highest level certification for treating mourning and death. I am the author & editor of 4 books and many articles on grief & trauma. I have trained many other therapists. I can help you find your way through painful grief.
