Grief and Loss
Painful feelings resulting from grief and loss can be debiltating, haunting and preventing you from moving forward and growing. Humans have a need to grow. When this is stunted, we feel as if something is wrong. Humans also have the need to feel safe and have a sense of control in their lives. When we lose something or someone we have grown attached to, those feelings of safety and control are threatened. Dr. Cristiano is well-acquainted with the many faces of loss and grief. Dr. Cristiano possesses the training, experience and credentials to provide you with the needed relief and the hope that you will get through this as quickly as possible.
