Thrive Counseling offers both individual and group grief support programs for grieving children, adolescents and their families/guardians. Dealing with grief because of death and loss of loved ones has never been easy and for parents it’s hard to know which symptoms are normal grief responses and which spell trouble in kids.

It is not uncommon for children to be exposed to loss before they become adults and it is not possible to shield children or protect them from this reality, nor should adults try. Children, in fact, do grieve, and they can be helped with the grieving process just like a cast can help a broken arm with the healing process. Because children lack life experiences that teaches coping skills and, in the case of younger kids, the cognitive skills that enable them to put words to feelings, they can be particularly vulnerable to grief. At Thrive Counseling, we work with children on their developmental level to understand the grieving process and facilitate the expression of feelings.

Sometimes clients can feel stuck in the grieving process. I enjoy helping clients explore the stages of grief which include: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. When clients have the space to explore these stages, they frequently notice that acceptance is a process rather than a destination. I also enjoy working with complicated grief.

Are you experiencing the heartbreak of having a miscarriage? Are you and your spouse struggling with infertility and losing hope? You don't have to suffer through your painful experiences of loss alone. Being unable to conceive, or losing a child before or after birth, is one of the more heartbreaking, earth shattering things in life. The pain that you experience and the feelings and thoughts of failure can be overwhelming and it may feel as though life won't go on. I would be honored to walk with you on this journey of grief to a place of acceptance and healing.

Because grief and loss are at the core of a number of psychological disorders, it is important to understand how it impacts the family as well as the individual. Often symptoms take a while to appear and the sooner they are identified the quicker a remedy can be attained. Brief Therapy is an ideal approach to grief and loss therapy as it addresses the presenting problem as well as searching for any underlying issues
