Each counselor believes that when there is grief or loss, it is to be experienced , not avoided. Therefore we encourage grieving and help clients understand that, "blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." We will compassionately help those with loss navigate the stages of death and encourage them to speak fully of their loss and hopefully one day to celebrate the person with not only pain, but with joy at the memories.

Grief and loss may take many forms, be it the loss of a loved one or beloved pet, a change in finances/employment/health, or even the breakup of a meaningful relationship. Resolving grief can seem insurmountable, and also become complicated if we avoid the difficult feelings that accompany the grieving process. At New Wilmington Psychotherapy & Counseling we utilize a comprehensive approach to grief and loss. We incorporate helping strategies designed to meet one's individualized needs determined by each unique situation. Approach objectives are to facillitate the expansion of healthy and meaningful ways of experiencing one's self and the world -- the ultimate goal, achieving acceptance.
