Losing friends and loved ones is one of the most difficult transitions we will encounter in life. I try to meet people where they are in the pain they are dealing with having lost a beloved family member or a cherished friend, coworker, teacher, or fellow student. I walk with people through their grief offering comfort, a listening ear, and support knowing what they are experiencing can be life altering. I help them to be comfortable knowing that healing will be a slow process that is unique to each and every individual.

It's natural to feel sorrow after the loss of someone we love--whether that loss be from death, divorce or estrangement. Moreover, our psychologists understand that each person copes and deals with grief differently. Our approach to grief and loss therapy focuses on healthy expressions of sorrow, acknowledging unhelpful patterns of thinking, and providing skills to cope with loss. This has proven to be a very effective approach when dealing with grief and loss.

When someone matters to us it is as if there are hollow tubes that are connected to our hearts. Traversing these tubes are our needs. The more important the person is to us the more tubes there are that connect our hearts. When we loose someone it is as if the tubes are axed off at the other end; our needs still reach out but now there is no one there to meet them, and that is painful. Grief work consists of plucking out these tubes, one-by-one, from our heart. It takes both time (e.g., across seasons, special occasions, memories) and the avoidance of practices that don't work (e.g., trying to tape the tubes onto someone else, getting drunk). I've helped many with this so feel free to call.

Loss is the inevitable that takes us by surprise. The surprise is that it actually happened and then the mysterious journey can be very confusing. Ranging from feeling like you are on a roller coaster to feeling mired in depths of sadness. This journey is made all the more complex if the relationship was unresolved or conflicted. Loss is inevitable and everyone faces it. There is no one path. Many people will believe their is one path and then expect you to be on it or over it. Your path is your path. It is unique and it might have unique stumbling blocks. Your not alone.

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 there—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.
