Grief and Loss

When Grief and Loss Are Complicated, Turning Point Psychotherapy Can Help

  • Have you lost someone very important you?
  • Are your emotions still painfully intense?
  • Are you avoiding people, place and things that could trigger painful thoughts and feelings related to what you’ve lost?
  • Do you find yourself thinking and thinking about the same things over and over again?
  • Are you blaming yourself for things you did or things that happened which you haven’t been able to reconcile yet?

If so, it sounds like you are grieving and your grieving process thus far is complex.grief2

There is no generalized timeline for integrating grief.  We all go at our own pace.  But, if you feel that your emotions are prolonged, intense and too painful to allow you to function, then perhaps its time to reach out for some professional help.

Trained in the Hospice Model of Grief as a cyclical process, and in the Coherence Therapy model of attachment theory and  implicit memory reconsolidation,  I work with clients to help them process information about death at different levels of consciousness and mental representation.
