We all face grief and loss whether due to death, divorce, or loss of health, home, job etc. People who are facing the loss of a loved one also go through anticipatory grief. None of us grieves in the same way, or for the same length of time after a loss. It is important to be able to process these feelings in a safe environment. It is also important to understand the stages of grief, and how it can manifest in one's psyche. Grief can also manifest physically. It is essential to navigate this journey in order to reach a new equilibrium. I have years of experience in this area, working with individuals and groups.

Losing someone we love can be very painful. Loss that is left unprocessed, beneath the radar of our hearts, however, can seriously impact our personal lives and key relationships. Grief that is felt and expressed, on the other hand, can strengthen and enrich life. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are essential ways to make grieving a meaningful experience.

Grief and Loss is not just about the death of someone we love. It can be triggered by the loss of a pet or a friend, by a move to a new home, or even by a job promotion. Each time our "normal" changes, we experience some form of grief or loss. When I meet someone who is experiencing grief or loss, I know that their journey is going to be unique and the process will include stories from the past, reflection on dreams that are lost, and exploration of new possibilities for the future. Grief and Loss can be a lonely phase, but meeting with a counselor can help ease some of that burden even if there is no specific goal except to talk about what is on your mind this week.

Everyone reacts to death differently. Some become numb and will eventually disconnect from friends. Despair sets in as the reality of the loss settles. The grieving process can be long and isolating. My objective is to counsel the soul with methods generated by the Spirit of God. So that the process is in reliance to Him. Receiving reassurance and feeling understood is also part of the counseling process and will make the recovery process more complete during one of life's most challenging times. Even Jesus wept. It is okay to do so. It is both natural and biblical to grieve. It is part of the healing process that I look forward to helping you through. You are not alone.

Loss occurs in many aspects of our lives. The grief that comes with loss has a trajectory that must be honored, but that is not often known and therefore becomes "derailed." The opportunity to explore one's grief and express all aspects of it safely allows us to get "back on track" and move through the process appropriately to the point of beginning to recover and move on without leaving behind those things of value.

Marsha Lucas, PhD

As much as any of us might wish grief and loss weren't a part of life, if we can integrate them into who you become, we really do grow to a better version of ourselves. The pain of grief isn't something to "get over," and the messages we sometimes get from others to do it can lead to withdrawal, more pain, and more feelings of loss. Working through your grief isn't about "closure" -- trying to close the door on your sadness and loss doesn't serve you. But with support, you can find your way forward to growth, joy, and a fuller life.

Aging, physical changes, limitations and challenges, terminal illness, loss and grief often require the help of a trained professional in order to feel whole and complete during this stage of life. The transpersonal perspective includes exploration of spirituality and is known to be one of the best for helping clients deal with change and loss in life.

We can help you gain an understanding of your feelings and provide you coping strategies for dealing with the loss.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at or 877-606-6161.

I make use of various tools in-session and through assigned homework to help support your grief processing and adaptation.

It is human to try to avoid emotional pain. There are many ways of doing this: overeating, drinking too much, overworking, developing “anger” issues, becoming depressed and unmotivated, cultivating addictions that give us temporary relief but create other problems in our lives. Eventually, avoidance can backfire and become a destructive force. By helping clients identify and process their grief and experience their feelings gradually and safely, it becomes possible to move on while honoring losses and to reconnect with a sense of aliveness, gratitude, and passion.

Are you grieving a loss and wondering if you’ll ever feel normal again? Are your family and friends at a loss as to how to help you? Do you feel like they’re tired of hearing you talk about it? Grief and loss are much more complicated than most people think. It’s not always a matter of mourning for a couple of months after which you just “get over it.” If you are still grieving after you think you should be done, you may start to criticize yourself for not moving on as quickly as expected. Here’s the truth: each person grieves in his or own way and time. There’s no right way to grieve. You can find a way to accept yourself and move through your loss in your own way. Call today.

When someone lost the loved one, he/she will experience different feelings, such as sad, angry, lonely, confused, and guilty. When these strong emotions all come together at the same time, one can be overwhelmed. Hence, grief counseling can help. Everyone goes through birth, aging, sickness, and death, and grief is a normal process of human’s life. Grief counseling gives you an opportunity to find a better way to memorize the loved one while moving forward your life.

Loss is inevitable. It is the flip side of love and the greatest pain we know. Hearts can break and hearts can heal. We must first accept ALL feelings. We can cultivate gratitude for the gifts our loved one gave us. Sometimes it is also important to acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the one we have lost., the ways they may have caused pain to themselves and others. If the person has been a large part of our daily living, it is as if we need to recreate our lives bringing new resources into the emptiness. The waves of extreme pain become less frequent with time. The person's memory remains with us, and their gifts to us can inspire those very strengths in ourselves.

Grieving? Lose someone or something? Grief and loss can be overwhelming. Connecting with the loss is an important aspect of the process as well as finding what growth can be achieved through it. We ask questions like - "Does God care". These are very real and normal feelings. Though Christ suffered also, entering into that is not pleasant. I provide a listening ear. Contact me.

When a loved one exits your life, chaos enters. People tell you they know how you feel, but you know the truth: the grief response is unique to each individual. No one can crawl into your head and truly get your experience of loss. And reconciling your life with a loved one's death is overwhelming. Yet it can be done. It won't be easy, but change is possible. I learned this truth from my own experience of grief that began with the unexpected death of my husband. If my thoughts resonate with you, contact me. We can discuss your concerns and determine if I'm a good fit. You don't have to walk this road of loss alone.

Licensed Psychologist

Most people who come to therapy are suffering from some loss, whether from a death of a loved one or the loss of a job or of a relationship. There is also the loss of dreams. Together, we work to find out what the losses have been and to "work through" them. This is hard work, but on the "other side" of this work, once it has been done, is the energy and vitality and the peace of mind that has been missing. I usually use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for this work, as there is so much research to support it, and it works quickly compared to most therapeutic approaches.

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

932 Hungerford Drive, #2A, Rockville, Maryland 20850

We experience loss around many different events in our life. Loss of a loved one, a job, our hopes and expectations, and financial security are some life changing circumstances that bring about grief and loss. I help to create a space where it feels safe to talk about the many different feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that can arise. You don’t have to go through this alone. Finding the right counselor can help bring you some relief to a difficult time.

Grief is an emotional reaction to loss. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. While many people associate grief with death, grief can come from divorce or the end of a relationship, loss of good health, loss of a job, miscarriage, loss of financial stability, loss of a pet, loss of a dream, loss of family home, and so many more reasons. After a loss it is important to let our feelings out, if we bury them, they later may come out as continual depression and sadness. It is important to honestly recognize the grief or sadness and work through it.

Nedra Voorhies, LPC
