Grief Counselor

Marilee Snyder, LCSW, DCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

75 Manhattan Dr., Boulder, Colorado

You're feeling disabled, like you've lost a part of YOU, yourself. Perhaps you're grieving the loss of your own health or capabilities, a family member, an intimate partner, a friend, a job. You are grieving the loss of a precious dream. Such unbearable loss can affect your sense of yourself. In grieving, you begin at an end, feel overwhelmed and disoriented, and end with a kind of new beginning. When you're in the middle of it, the mourning process can feel endless. And it doesn't help when your social environment expects you to recover sooner than you are ready. Grief is an individual, normal, organic process. Reach out for support from a competent therapist. I'm right here.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addictions Counselor

100 Arapahoe, suite #12, Boulder, Colorado

It takes courage to allow ourselves the space and time to process intense emotions around loss in our lives. Often times we suddenly feel completely consumed by grief because of multiple losses experienced in a short amount of time, also known as, complex grief. My grandmother used to say, "when it rains it pours," which can certainly feel true. Working in collaboration with you, I will guide you through the stages of grief using combination of talk therapy, narrative therapy and movement.

Grief is a powerful and unique process. There are numerous examples of how grief and loss can show up in your life, but often grief is in response to a deep and profound loss that you have experienced. This can show up as losing your loved one; your spouse, your close friend, your colleague, your beloved pet, or it can be the loss of your job, your marriage, your relationship, your home, or some other aspect of your identity. Love, patience, and compassion are vital to your grief process. Being able to navigate your grief process on your own can be overwhelming and that is when it is helpful to have someone to work with to support you and help you heal by being a witness to your process.

Grief Counselor

Howard Lambert, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Middlefork Road, Boulder, Colorado

Life can be seen as a series of losses. We do not suffer because of these losses, but because we do not know how to deal with the losses in healthy ways. Pain is part of life and pain needs to be embraced and understood. Grief is a normal response to loss. It takes us on a jouney of self-discovery and personal renewal. It is when we deny, minimize and run away from the uncomfortable feelings that flow from losses that we create our own internal problems. I can help you find the courage to face the pain of loss and disappointments. That will enable you will grow through the difficult parts and become a more fully alive person.

Grief Counselor

Jeremy Kalan, MA, LPCC, NCC, CPCC

Nationally Certified Counselor

4673 Tally Ho Ct, Boulder, Colorado

I provide a compassionate, calm, empathetic presence for you to work through the denial, anger, guilt, "what ifs", depression, and ultimately, the acceptance of the loss. I guide individuals through this very difficult process. One reason for experiencing profound sadness is to slowly facilitate the ability to let go of who or what we have lost. It is hard to feel the pain of loss in our heart, but if we try to avoid it, then it will remain within us, stuck and undigested. We need to allow ourselves the space to sit with, observe, and feel our own grief sufficiently, in order for us to eventually, at the natural pace of our body, move beyond it.

Grief Counselor

Sue McCullough, LCSW

Licensed Clincial Social Worker

700 Front Street, Suite 208, Louisville, Colorado

Unfortunately grief and loss is a part of life. Loss of a loved one, a divorce, loss of a job are all reasons people experience grief. Everyone experiences a loss in their own way. I will help you deal with the grief you are experencing by allowing you to feel without judgement. I use techniques such as guided imagery and breathing techniques to help you face and feel your grief instead of burying it. Sometimes we never get over a loss but with support and help, you can get through it.

Grief Counselor

April Pojman, MA, MS, LPC, CHT

Licensed Professional Counselor

2325 19th Street, Boulder, Colorado

We have two choices in the face of loss, we can choose to protect ourselves and love less in the future, or we can choose to recognize just how precious our relationships are and become even more open-hearted with the full knowledge that one day they will end. I can help you to cope with the initial grief of loss, find your footing again, and make meaning of your experience. Over time I can support you to accept loss and death as a natural part of every life and to honor it as the rite of passage that it is.

Grief Counselor

Grief and loss can paralyze us and stop us dead in our tracks. Whether you've lost a loved one or a job or an important relationship, in order to heal you have to process what you're feeling. Otherwise you'll never be able to move forward. In our work together I'll share exercises, practices and tools that honor where you are in the healing process and be your soft place to fall when you need time to reflect and talk.

Grief and Loss are often related to someone dying, even a pet. But Grief and Loss can be equally devastating or debilitating when a major life transition occurs. It could be a divorce, job loss, children leaving for college, separating yourself from a negative person or force and even letting go of a part of yourself (from an addiction, trauma, or relationship). The effects of change can lead to emotional ups and downs like severe anger or numbness or to the return of behaviors that mask our emotions temporarily (drinking, drugs, sex or avoidance of people). Regardless of why you might be feeling grief or loss, the process of grieving can lead you to a healthier life filled with meaning.

Grief Counselor

Joe Soma, MA, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2769 Iris Ave, Suite 114, Boulder, Colorado

Every person experiences grief, it is part of the human condition. I believe that grief is one of those experiences that when we experience it in the present, we simultaneously experience all of our past griefs. A huge amount of both past and present emotion to sequence through our systems. So, how we process grief today is related to how we have historically grieved. Meaning that how we process grief, rather than the cause for the grief is where I will focus. Of course the thing we are grieving matters... a lot. However if you are stuck in the grieving process, I want to know how you learned to grieve? What in the process is satisfying, what is not so that healthy grieving can occur.

Grief Counselor

Peg Shippert, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2760 29th St., Suite 2C, Boulder, Colorado

Whether you have recently lost a loved one, or want to address grief from past loss(es), I am here to support you on your journey. Grief is a powerful emotion, and can be exhausting. You do not have to face it alone. Our culture does not teach how to managing grief. It is easy to become stuck, and confused about how to live with the sadness, and depth of emotion. You may find yourself thinking you are going crazy. Others may expect you to get back to normal far too soon. I can help you find your own inner resources, and understand the emotional requirements of grief. Therapy for grief can help you use your grief experience to develop new wisdom and understanding.

Grief Counselor

Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

1503 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, Colorado

Grief work may be some of the most important work we can do to become more human and to feel the depths of our aliveness. Without processing grief, we become small. I work with clients to develop a safe space to feel grief and return to full hearted living. In our western culture, we have lost much of our natural capacity to grieve because of our hesitation to appear weak and vulnerable. The first step in my practice is to help rewire our thinking and nervous system so that we can see the importance of grief and allow ourselves the time and space to grieve. After developing some capacity, I work to help you find and create safe people and places to do the work with others.

Grief Counselor

Cristina Scatigno, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

2737 Mapleton Ave Suite 101, Boulder, Colorado

I understand that grief and loss can be one of the most painful life experiences. Everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Sometimes we grieve a parent, a child, a pet, or even our own loss of innocence. I have worked with children who have lost a parent to suicide and I understand how difficult this experience is for children. However, with knowledge and compassion they can begin to process and make sense of their losses. I have also worked with people struggling to accept a medical illness and this loss of health is something to notice, pay attention to, and grieve.
