Grief Counselor

Jenifer Garrido, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Mount Dora

My goal is to assist my clients with giving themselves "permission" to grieve. I often find that people struggle with this emotion, particularly when they are grieving the loss of a relationship, and not a death. While I caution clients that grieving doesn't have an expiration date, we can get "stuck" in the past and not know how to move past the pain of yesterday. I aim to teach clients healthy and productive ways to express and process their emotions, such as anger, sadness and fear, and find effective ways to help them let go so they can begin to create a new life on their terms.

Loss is painful whether it involves a person, pet, or even a part of ourselves such as health or a career. As human beings we are designed to attach strongly to the people we love. When attachment bonds are threatened we feel extremely strong emotions. Fortunately we are resilient beings and most often the thing that helps us most is having a safe and secure place to explore emotions and make sense of the loss. As we explore your grief we will work at your pace. Should the need arise we will explore any issues that might be complicate or interfere with the grieving process such as unfinished business or unresolved trauma.

Grief Counselor

Wendy Crane, Ed.S., LMFT, NCC, CHt

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grief shows up through several life experiences: the loss of a loved one, divorce, major life transitions, or realizing that something or someone in your life does not match "the dream" you had in your mind. In counseling I invite you to understand the stages of grief and work your way through each one. My role is to hold space for you to face your disbelief, express your anger, cry seemingly endless tears, bargain for a new outcome, and find the courage to delve into your sadness. Taking one step at a time, you eventually reach a place of peace and acceptance. Through this incredible experience of growth and expansion, I will support you in discovering the depth of your own strength.

So much about processing grief and loss is about sharing your experience with another; I am an empathetic ear that would be honored to go through this experience with you. In addition, I can offer various types of tools and/or therapies to assist the process, such as but not limited to EMDR therapy and experiential activities such as art and music.

Grief and loss are milestones that everyone will face at some point in their life. It is something that is unavoidable as we attach to others throughout life. I work closely with clients who are experiencing pain and difficulty in their lives due to a separation or loss of someone close to them. Together, we can work through these feelings and discover new ways of coping through these difficult times.

Experiencing loss is painful, and you may be feeling very sad and alone. It may seem like the hurt is too much to bear and may never go away. You may be convinced there is no hope of ever feeling differently again. The truth is, loss brings about many emotions, some of which can be difficult to accept. But know this…these feelings are normal. They are a normal human response to losing someone or something we care about deeply. While difficult to comprehend, the things you are feeling and experiencing can change. As a professional trained to help people heal after loss, I will support and guide you through the steps you must take in order to cope and move forward once again. 407-699-5824

Unfortunately it is a myth that, “time heals all wounds.” It does not. However, when we express our grief it is often referred to as the healing emotion. It is important to share the stories of grief and loss in a safe place so that we can heal. I’ve counseled individuals and led groups as large as 20 people for those seeking to overcome the loss of a loved one.

The loss of someone we care deeply for is probably the most difficult thing we will ever face. You don't have to go through grief alone. I provide a safe and private place for you to work through the pain. Your life will never be the same so I won't promise that, but I will guide you through the grieving process and help you find meaning, acceptance, and the strength to move forward in a new direction.

I have worked with many clients who are dealing with grief and loss issues, including children and families who have lost a loved one. I have also worked with trauma survivors and their families and loved ones, including victims and others impacted by or involved in the Pulse nightclub shootings. I encourage people to understand that there is no "wrong" way to grieve and that it is a process that takes time.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.
