Are you searching for a grief counselor?
You may notice that during grief, you experience tiredness, low energy, or a decline in motivation. The activities and interests that pulled your attention in the past do not have the same impact today.

Counselors that can help
Do you love someone who is gone?
Have you lost the thing you thought defined you?
Were there dreams and plans that never materialized?
When we lose something important to us, we feel grief. Sometimes the losses are so sudden or unthinkable, we feel traumatized. I specialize in traumatic grief counseling.
Because everyone loves differently, everyone grieves differently. There is no right way. But grief can be so powerful you need help navigating through it.
You may feel shocked, or confused. You may feel sadness, anger, loneliness, or shakiness during the process of grief. Then there may be times when you laugh honestly and openly. All of this is normal.
At times unanswered questions, and feelings of guilt, or disorientation can feel overwhelming. Very sudden or violent deaths bring complicated layers of feelings.
We can provide you with strategies to manage the intensity of these emotions so that you can move through the process of mourning and still live your life.
There is often a spiritual awareness when someone dies and we are happy to incorporate your own faith into the therapy. So many things change when someone dies. It is nice to have greater comforts at hand. Start counseling today.
When children experience death, hard divorces, or other losses, they usually develop ways to cope and continue to grow. But, later in adulthood, a new event can awaken those old losses. You may find you are grieving for both, and this is a good time for therapy. You will need new, adult coping strategies because the ones that worked for you when you were younger may not work for you now that you have adult relationships.

Grief does lessen over time. It also has a circular quality. Anniversaries, holidays, and seasonal markers can reawaken sorrow. Therapy can help during these times as well.
Let us help you honor the love you feel, and let go of the pain.
