We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

Although at some time we all experience loss and the grief that follows, there are few life experiences that are lonelier. Summer can gently walk with you through your experience of grief, and help you process your sadness and pain as you move through this difficult time. Although grief and depression are distinct, at times they feel the same, and sometimes loss can precipitate depression. If you feel that you are alone and stuck in your grief, it's probably time to ask for help.

Dr. Smith's approach to Grief and loss is not to place anyone in a box but understand the grieving process from the clients perspective. It is with great concern that I take care of my patient's and show empathy in it's highest regard for those who are dealing with the loss of a love one. Common reasons for seeking therapy include difficulty adjusting to life changes and transitions, coping with traumatic life experiences, and difficulty managing feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and anger. Other common issues include dissatisfaction in significant relationships, parenting challenge’s, and issues related to body image and unhealthy eating patterns.

Grief is the body and spirit's response to significant loss. Grief is involuntary and necessary. Grief is natural and the only way to heal the body and spirit is to go through it. Suppressing, denying, minimizing and avoiding the process that is grief will be rejected by the body and spirit. Grief is not a linear process and is unique to each person. I help by teaching ways to cope that will reduce the negative symptoms of grief, such as the difficulty with focus, concentration and memory, fatigue, and sadness, while respecting and honoring your process.

Grief and loss are deep and ongoing emotional processes. There are commonalities that do exist for many of us such as periods of loneliness, despair, and just plain depression. But for each individual the experience of grief and loss are unique. Helping clients learn to honor their own process, validate it, and give their selves the space and time to express their grief and loss is what I do. Even though our grief and loss will usually be with us for our lifetime, we can learn to live with our sadness and pain and in our own time, still live a healthy, wonderful and thriving life.

Thrive Counseling offers both individual and group grief support programs for grieving children, adolescents and their families/guardians. Dealing with grief because of death and loss of loved ones has never been easy and for parents it’s hard to know which symptoms are normal grief responses and which spell trouble in kids. Grieving the loss of family or friends may go on for years in some cases and can be a life changing situation. Grief is an emotion we wish could be reserved only for adults, but the reality is, grief does not discriminate. That is why it is so important to have caring support in times of bereavement and grief. Children and teens many times have problems dealing with grief bec....

Grieving is a natural and necessary response to a loss. When we lose a loved one we must go through the process of grieving to heal from that loss and to be able to fully engage in life again. Sometimes the loss we experience does not come in the form of losing a person, but of losing a job, a career, a relationship, or a dream, for example. Whatever the type of loss we experience, we need to find ways of adjusting to it. Therapy can help people to process their feelings and navigate the waters of grief and loss, and assist them with rebuilding their lives.
