Kalpana Murthy, MBA, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Career Coach, Certified EMDR Therapist

Decatur, Georgia 30030

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

Licensed Professional Counselor

1700 Tree Lane, Suite 260, Snellville, Georgia 30078

Grief and loss is unfortunately something that we must all go through. It is very painful to lose a loved one. However, as difficult as it is, grief can help us grow as people. Getting through the grief process well means that you can gain a deeper understanding about life and find more empathy toward others. My approach toward working with grief and loss is gentle and compassionate. I seek to help you work through the sadness and pain and get back to living again and finding new meaning in your life.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

2784 N. Decatur Rd., Suite 145, Decatur, Georgia 30033

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

At Anchor Point, we describe ourselves as "a haven in a storm". Whenever we experience deep pain through a death, separation, loss, moving to a new location, etc. people often have a feeling of being oeverwhelmed and lost- much like being tossed about in a storm. We offer a listening ear, a place to honor the loss, and a compass to find your direction again. I have a spiritual background with an advanced degree in theology in addition to my education and training in couseling to help you come to answers that help you begin the healing process.

Paul F. Austin, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2300 Henderson Mill Road Suite 411, Atlanta, Georgia 30345

I have helped many individuals struggling with the loss of a loved one, friend or beloved animal. I help you identify when grief is appropriate and when it is taking on a role of its own. It is possible to get stuck in your grief and have it impact multiple other areas of your life. I will help you to walk through the steps to complete the grief process and honor the memory of the one that you lost.

Terry Thompson Horn, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

2200 Century Parkway NE, #120, Atlanta, Georgia 30345

My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

John Ballew, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

537 Linwood Ave., NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30306

People who have experienced grief or loss can wonder if life will ever return to normal. Loss changes us; it is an intimate experience that leaves us feeling vulnerable, perhaps overwhelmed. Supportive and engaged counseling can make all the difference in moving forward with life. Counseling is different than talking with a friend; we'll look at what has changed for you and how to overcome the obstacles you face in moving forward.

Summer Gray, MS, LPC, CIRT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Imago Therapist

2751 Buford Highway, Suite 204, Atlanta, Georgia 30324

Although at some time we all experience loss and the grief that follows, there are few life experiences that are lonelier. Summer can gently walk with you through your experience of grief, and help you process your sadness and pain as you move through this difficult time. Although grief and depression are distinct, at times they feel the same, and sometimes loss can precipitate depression. If you feel that you are alone and stuck in your grief, it's probably time to ask for help.

Wendy Dickinson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

2964 Peachtree Road Suite 760, Atlanta, Georgia 30305

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

Cindy McKee, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1585 Old Norcross Road, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046

Grief is a process and the length of grief will vary. Grief needs to be respected to be addressed and we live in a society that wants people to "get over it" quickly. People also want to get out of pain as quickly as possible. Grieving and mourning needs to be faced and supported. When people get stuck in issues such as anger or even guilt, they often need assistance with addressing these issues. Therapy is beneficial with these issues. Depending on how the person died, there may be some trauma accompanying grief as well. At times addressing the trauma may be necessary.

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.

Sarah Bryan, Board Certified Christian Counselor

Board Cert. Christian Counselor, CTC

Johns Creek, Georgia 30097

Grief is a natural response to loss. A loss of any magnitude can trigger grief--from losing a loved one to losing a job, from ending a relationship to a significant financial loss. Grieving poorly can lead to unresolved and unprocessed pain that lasts a lifetime. On the other hand, grieving well is one of the most important skills in life and can lead to lasting healing and wholeness. Call Sarah for an appointment (770) 548-3034.

Benita A. Esposito, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

5885 Glenridge Drive, Suite 130, Atlanta, Georgia 30328

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole again.

Therapeutic support for grief and loss, along with life transitions counseling can be beneficial to those who have experienced losses such as the death of a loved one, a miscarriage, a separation or divorce, a job loss, the loss of one's health, or the loss of something dear to them.

Grief is a psychological reaction to loss. Losses come in many different forms, for example loss of a loved one, being severely injured in an accident, being diagnosed with a debilitating illness, breakup of a marital relationship, postpartum depression and experiences such as grieving over the loss of a job. During the course of my career I headed up the Rehabilitation Psychology Services in one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. where I had the opportunity to work with grief reactions in people experiencing illnesses and injuries ranging from cancer to strokes to severe mental illness and spinal cord injury.

Licensed Professional Counselor

5400 Laurel Springs Parkway, Suite 1307, Suwanee, Georgia 30024

"You can't go over it, you have to go through it." A line in the popular children's book "Going on a Bear Hunt", is strangely comparable to what walking through the grieving process to find healing is like. The pain does not go away over night but with both time and by engaging with someone considered safe and present, the healing can happen and hope, restored. As it may seem almost impossible at the moment, especially if your grief is new, you can have a "new normal", and enjoy life once again. Calling someone to process the experience is the first step to "getting through".

1640 Powers Ferry Rd, Bldg 16, Ste 100, Marietta,, Georgia 30067

Grief and loss is a part of every life. Sometimes we can become stuck in a rut and be unable to move on with our lives. Having someone come alongside you and help carry that burden can make all the difference. I believe in the healing power of art when words fail and the healing found in the therapeutic relationship. Many are traumatized by the losses they have endured and only need to reach out for help.
