Everyone has experienced loss, from the death of a loved one to the loss of a job; from a deeply broken relationship to the diagnosis of a life-altering illness. Facing the grief that comes with each loss is difficult but incredibly important to healing and restoration. I seek to create an environment where you feel safe to explore your grief and find healing at your own pace.

Recovery from loss of a loved one - human or animal - can be a very up and down road. Sadness can linger and even turn into depression. If you are struggling to make sense of a loss or to regain your equilibrium and life, talking to a therapist can be of great benefit. Whether your loss was recent or years ago, you can achieve a sense of closure and peace.

There are times in everyone's life when we go through the loss of someone or something that we love. While the grieving process is common to all of us it is also very personal. Each person reacts to grief in their own unique way based on the nature of the relationship, the specific circumstances, and our own personality. I will help you through this process in a way that brings dignity and respect to that relationship. A path of meaning and healing is possible and you do not have to walk that path alone.

Anita offers unique benefits from her own personal experiences, which are merged with training and years of professional experience. Frequently, grief and loss begins with shock. There are two forms of grief and loss. Anticipatory grief, which is just as it sounds. When a loved one is very ill we anticipate their decline. If a loved one is suddenly murdered or dies in an accident this is different from anticipatory grief. Those who are in Anita's care take as much time as needed to work through grief and loss issues. Gradually, their pain becomes, "different" and acceptance slowly becomes part of their reality.

Much of life, whether we like it or not, involves saying goodbye. We say it to family members, to beloved friends, and even to careers and dreams. Sometimes we have a say in how our goodbyes happen; more often they’re forced upon us. Through Grief and Loss Counseling, I help clients learn how to express their grief and remorse in healthy, productive ways. They’re able to honor the departed and grieve their losses, while, at the same time, re-gain the clarity, energy and resilience needed for the life that’s before them. Deep sadness turns to hope and renewed purpose as they honor the past without staying stuck there.

You've heard "time heals all wounds", but that doesn't help you much now. You've told yourself to "get over it", but you can't. Trite phrases seldom help the depression and anxiety that accompanies significant grief and loss. You don't have to walk this painful journey alone. I have helped many persons work through the loss of a loved one(s) and the losses of material possessions, jobs, identity and life changes, painful parenting, divorce an other, broken relationships. Call, and let me help you, as well. More info on grief and loss may be found at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.

Compassion and understanding are two key aspects of helping those grieving the loss of a loved one or relationship. I focus on helping to promote hope when feelings overwhelm one's ability to look beyond the hurt and sadness. Often, there is guilt or unresolved relational issues that complicate the grieving process. My approach emphasizes attaining a positive perspective of the loss and oneself, promoting positive self-worth.

Often, when we experience deep hurt and sadness from the loss of a relationship, it seems impossible to ever feel a sense of contentment or acceptance.
