Marriage and Family Therapist. Experience in Treating Grief and loss.

You miss your loved one daily.

“Why did you leave me? 

Your father died almost two years ago –  suddenly.

The memories of that day you received the call are as fresh as the air on a cool fall day. 

The two of you had differences, but he was a great father. You loved and cared deeply about him.

Driving home from work, you hear one of the many songs you heard in childhood. The tears roll uncontrollably from your eyes

You’re flooded by regret.

I should have called more. I was always too busy to see my dad”. You even missed calling him on Fathers Day once. 

Memories make the pain worse.

You wake up from dreams searching for him, but his nowhere to be found.

The reoccurring dreams have the same theme: you franticly look for him but never find him. 

As the holidays approach, you find yourself attending the restaurant your family went to when you were young.

Stopping at your childhood home and gazing from the street is a ritual you do alone. 

Once again, your mind becomes flooded with thoughts.

It’s Christmas, and in your mind, you see the two of you opening presents under the tree

In your closet are several of his clothes.

The smell of them makes you realize that’s “my daddy”. 

You normalize your pain by telling yourself that, “It’s only been two years.

The way I feel will get better. When others ask you about your father’s death, you have the same answer

“It’s part of life. There’s nothing I can do about it.  

There is no closure traveling down this road. 

You can keep all your feelings about your father’s passing to yourself and share them with no one. 

Unfortunately, the dreams will continue to haunt you and you’ll continue to suffer your grief alone. 

You may have fewer dreams, and you may never find him.

If he does appear, you wake up confused and question the events in your dream. 

When you visit places the two of you once frequented, it only causes depression and loneliness.

You now visit these places around your dad’s birthday and when you feel sad. 

It’s Time To seek Grief Therapy.

Finding a therapist to help you process the pain of losing a loved one is not what most want to do.

But….          

Suffering in silence about their death sounds like a lifetime of depressive thoughts and feelings around birthdays, holidays, and pretty much throughout the year.

There will always be memories that provoke thoughts.

Processing them makes all the difference! 

Whether or not your loved one passed unexpectedly, suffered a debilitating illness that caused their death, or committed suicide, this event changed your life forever.

There’s no question the holidays won’t be the same. 

Incorporating the loss into your life will determine the rest of your life.
