Death and Dying
Facing death and dying is stressful for all involved and often involves a process of grieving. Death and dying can involve our loved ones or us. However, death and dying issues also commonly involve other people in our lives such as co-workers and can also involve our pets. Death and dying issues are also commonly part of the trauma of losing a child to miscarriage or stillbirth. The grief is a response is often activated and involves a wide range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Death and dying is experienced differently depending on context and counseling can be a helpful place to address and explore changes in mood and behavior that often accompany being faced with death and dying.
I offer a warm and safe place to engage in death and dying counselling. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people who present with death and dying being their primary concern. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.
It is very important to not self-diagnosis and mental health changes that can occur when being faced with death and dying. With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but grieving can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional. Talk therapy is very effective at working with death and dying issues.
