Grief & Loss

Kelley Hawkins, MA, LPC-I

Licensed Professional Counselor, Intern

1000 Westbank Drive, Suite #6-250, Austin, TX 78746

It is impossible to avoid experiences of grief and loss in one's lifetime. Everyone experiences and processes these emotions and situations differently. I believe that by meeting clients where they are, in the grief experience, and helping them understand and know that hope exists is a critical component to helping them heal. I want my clients to know that they are not alone and that they have a safe place to share the darkness and desperation of their souls.

Lisa Kruse, MA, LPC Intern, EMDR-trained


Supervisor: Sunny Lansdale, Ph.D., LPC, 5524 Bee Caves Road, Bldg. A-2, Austin, TX 78746

Loss can elicit so many complex feelings and thoughts. I offer a safe, non-judgmental place for clients to say and feel whatever they need to express. Grief is often a scary and painful place to be, yet needs to be experienced and moved through rather than avoided--experiencing grief with the guidance of a caring professional can make this process less daunting.

Russell Kauitzsch, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

8500 N Mopac Suite 701, Austin, TX 78759

Grief and loss is experienced differently in each person but I often hear the question, "why?". It is difficult, if not impossible, to answer this question but counseling can help bring understanding, acceptance and peace to the client who is in grief or has lost a loved one. Every person expresses their grief differently and through counseling you can lessen the impact of grief, like reducing feelings of depression and sadness. We can also address feelings of guilt, regret, fear, and other intern conflict that can be a part of grief. Additionally, addressing one's own mortality can also be a part of the healing process. Individual and group counseling are very effective for grief work.

Grief and loss can be a very complicated and scary circumstance for many people. Therefore, clients generally must feel very safe and cared for in a therapeutic environment. I will create a safe space to help clients identify their grief and sadness and process the feelings associated. Clients will therefore eventually begin to feel relief as they move through their grieving process.

Grief & Loss

Shannon Rueter, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

950 Westbank Dr., Suite 104, Austin, TX 78746

Losing someone, or something, important to you is a part of humanity that, simply put, seems inhumane at times. I have experience walking with people through loss of a loved one or a phase of life, as well as anticipatory grief. I allow people to walk through their own process in their own time without parameters on what they "should" be feeling or how they "should" be acting.

Grief & Loss

Aggie Beasley, MA, BCB, CART, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

311 Lake Travis Business Park RR 620 S, Suite 102, Austin, TX 78734

A job loss, a close relative's or friend's move, a physical disability,a new stage in life are losses. Losses occur all through one's lifetime. Some losses can feel as if the ground upon which you stand is shaky and unreliable. Those losses bring about questions concerning identity and an unknown future. Meaningful losses involve close relationships. In counseling, you will find an opportunity to grieve that loss, an understanding of the symptoms of loss, and continue on the path of healing. Grieving is a roller coaster ride that some days will involve acceptance and other days involve anger, sadness, and aloneness.

Grief and loss, regardless of the source, has a life of it's own. Being with a grieving person means listening, solace, and showing respect for their loss. Depending on the the person and their personal efficacy, I offer a variety of behaviors they can do to lessen the pain and give them respite until more time has passed which will, in and of itself decrease suffering and renew hope in their future.

Tina Moody, M.Div., M.A.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2700 BeeCave Rd., Ste 114, Austin, TX 78746

Loss often leaves us drowning in an unknown ocean and can be stormy seas to navigate on your own. A new way of living is required in the absence of familiar surroundings and patterns. Whether losing a job or a spouse, either through death, divorce or some unexpected circumstance, missing what once was, even if it is by our choice, is a natural response. Yet, the process of letting go is hard. Life Practice offers calm harbor in transitional times of tempest. Help with changing to the new can be what keeps us afloat from the undertow of despair . We'd be honored to provide guidance, anchorage and safe haven as you find your sails for a new life.

Grief and loss come in so many forms from the more obvious losses loved ones, jobs, income and homes to loss of our security, value, dignity and self-esteem for a variety of reasons. A person needs to know they matter. Empathizing with and caring for the pain of losses is fundamental to being cared for as a person first. I want to help you to quickly appreciate that you matter, are not alone, don't need to be fixed, but rather just cared for.
