Grief & Loss

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC, MS, MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

Grief & Loss

Wendy Eisenberg, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

7 Whitney Street Extension, Westport, CT

What does one say when there is nothing to be said? Grief takes many forms and is born from various losses. There is "fresh" grief and "old" familiar grief. Grief counseling is a creative process for me.There is no right way to do it. Helping someone through their grief depends on how recent their loss was. The loss could be a lifetime partner, a friend, a pregnancy, a parent, a pet or the worst--a child. I start with encouraging my patients to scream, be silent, cry, or just talk. I believe they know themselves better than I ever will and they have inherent wisdom regarding what they need to do in order to wade through their grief. I provide a place and a person (me) to ease the way.
