My extensive work with grief, loss and other major life transitions allows me to bring full compassion and understanding to the pain you might be carrying. While grief never goes away, we can learn to live with it and adapt to the changes it brings. In our work together, I will provide you with self-regulating tools and methods to bring a sense of well-being and peace into your life so that you can regain your equilibrium while honoring the losses you've faced. I also specializes in illness, chronic-pain, caregiver burnout, the process of dying, death, and living on after someone you love has died. Spiritual support is an option I offer as well if this feels like it would be beneficial.

An important aspect of working through the loss of a significant relationship is grieving your loved one. There is a positive connection between having someone to talk to about your loss and progressing through the grief process in a healthy way. Losing someone you love will often bring intense anger, confusion, and sadness. Grief and loss counseling will help you learn about the symptoms of grieving and how important it is to take good care of yourself as you grieve.

The death of a loved one can be the most stressful event in a person’s life. I know how a wide array of emotions can be experienced, such as sadness, anger, anxiety, guilt, and despair. Changes in sleep patterns and appetite can occur, as well as physical illness. These are all normal parts of grieving and the feelings can ebb and flow over time. It is important to seek out a therapist who understands your loss. As a family therapist I am specialty trained to understand the impact of loss on your family and I can assist you through your bereavement process.

Connecting to our experiences of grief & loss means connecting to ourselves again. As people, a common experience we share is that of loss. Sometimes a loss is a death, or the end of a relationship. Other times it may be result from a change in a persons health, possessional or security loss, or dreams and desires. The impact of a loss resonates through various parts of our life. The impact my be our sleep, nutrition, motivation, mood, relationships, job, or even passions/hobbies. It can feel overwhelming to sort out all the feelings and experiences. Counseling gives you a space to safely unload your experiences, receive validation, and create steps to reconnect to yourself and your life.

Normalizing intense feelings of grief/loss is critical to emotional health and relational maturity. And this means often challenging our culture's views of labelling certain feelings as "bad". There are no "bad" feelings. Many are hesitant to enter their stories of grief/loss/intense sadness due to a fear of "falling apart". At times "falling apart" may be needed within the context of a support system or counseling environment and "falling apart" needs to be understood as "OK", normal and occasionally necessary. Our Lord modeled this as a "man of sorrows" and "fully acquainted with grief". Therapy, in part can give us the courage to embrace our stories and enter grief/loss.

Grief Counselor

Stephanie Bryan, LCSW, CAC, III

Psychotherapist, Addictions Counselor, & Parent Coach

You’re overwhelmed. You don’t know where to turn. Your friends and family do not understand your pain. They tell you to “get over it.” They tell you you’ve grieved long enough. You’re feeling misunderstood, unsupported, alone. We can talk in the safe confines of my office where you can share anything you need to share, cry, laugh (yes, that happens also), cry again, and know that whatever you need to do to help yourself heal is possible here. I care.

Grief Counselor

Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Idaho Springs

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.

The process of grieving is complex. There are several types of grief other than the death of a loved one. There is no "right or wrong" way to move through this painful process. There is no time frame for healing so our time together will be based on your personal experience and process of healing. My goal is to meet you where you are and facilitate healing in a safe & trusting environment.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addictions Counselor

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

Whether you are grieving the loss of a relationship, a loved one, a change in health, or are suffering from any major transition, trauma or life change, you are not alone. I am here to listen, empathize and help you process through your grief, so that you may begin to move beyond and feel joy again. Grief is complicated, painful and rarely a linear process. It can be isolating, and can leave you feeling empty, alone, anxious and depressed. You may find yourself avoiding the pain, only to feel stuck; or you may feel yourself swimming in a sea of your pain, incapable of living your life as you once did. I am here to support you on this journey towards finding yourself again.

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.
