Losing a loved one is often a deeply painful and disorienting experience. While loss is a normal part of life, sometimes people get stuck in grief and find themselves unable to move on with their lives.

If you find yourself stuck in grief, unable to put your life back together, or thinking over and over about a loved one for many months after you lost them, this might be a time to seek out therapy.

My name is Dr. Paul Guinther, I’m a licensed psychologist who has a special interest in grief and caring for people who have lost a loved one. I work with people to help them process their grief, honor their loss, and reconnect with a rich and meaningful life.

If we decide to work together, our work would not be about just moving on with your life or ‘getting over it’. Instead, I would help you learn how to honor your relationship with the person you’ve lost (even if it was a difficult one) AND get back to living your life.

Just as there is no “right” way to grieve, there is no set rule for when it’s time to seek help. However, if you feel like your loss is getting in the way of your life, I can probably help. If you need more time, take it. I’ll still be here, ready to talk.
