No safer place. No better time. Loss happens to all of us, at some points along our journey. The experience can be intensely painful and even alter the direction of our lives in negative and harmful ways. In times of grief we can either turn to God or away from Him. In His goodness, God will not waste your pain, and can turn your ashes into beauty. Let me help you grieve in a healthy manner, and move forward with hope in spite of what you have faced.

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

Grief is a natural response to loss. A loss of any magnitude can trigger grief--from losing a loved one to losing a job, from ending a relationship to a significant financial loss. Grieving poorly can lead to unresolved and unprocessed pain that lasts a lifetime. On the other hand, grieving well is one of the most important skills in life and can lead to lasting healing and wholeness. Call Sarah for an appointment (770) 548-3034.

If you can grieve well, you can live well. Loss is a normal part of life, so learning to grieve loss should be a normal part of life as well. If you struggle with grief and loss, I can help. More than likely, you feel “stuck” in your grief. You probably are. I believe getting stuck happens because our culture doesn’t value grieving. It actually teaches us to “move on.” You should be able to move on. The trick is how. I can help you navigate your grief in a way that will move you thorough it. The approach I use can also be used with any other troubling emotions. Contact me today for help with your grief. You don’t have to remain stuck any longer.

Grief is a psychological reaction to loss. Losses come in many different forms, for example loss of a loved one, being severely injured in an accident, being diagnosed with a debilitating illness, breakup of a marital relationship, postpartum depression and experiences such as grieving over the loss of a job. During the course of my career I headed up the Rehabilitation Psychology Services in one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. where I had the opportunity to work with grief reactions in people experiencing illnesses and injuries ranging from cancer to strokes to severe mental illness and spinal cord injury.

In a culture that has everything fast-tracked, grieving the loss of a loved one is hard to do in a healthy way. The impact of loosing someone close to you can be immobilizing. The importance of healthy grieving cannot be underestimated, and failure to do so can impact your well-being for years to come. In our work together you will be encouraged to grieve in healthy ways, provided a safe outlet to explore the impact and feelings of your loss and equipped with skills and resources to regain functionality in your life. Additionally, through our work together you will find meaningful ways to memorialize your loved one and celebrate the one you love and dearly miss.

Grief Counselor

Lorraine Wrage, M.Ed., LPC, CST

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of Ball Ground

I utilize an active model of grieving that helps the client have a map, so to speak, to be able to recognize where they are in the process of working through the loss. For example, the first step is to get through the denial and shock of what has happened to where one can accept its reality. Secondly, it's important to tell one's story in order to address a person's desire to regain what was lost. Third, is to address the despair and effects to one's life by coming to terms with what has happened, making meaning, identifying specific goals for therapy along with a treatment plan. Then finally, moving forward, withdrawing the energy once given to the trauma and redirecting it to find meaning.

"You can't go over it, you have to go through it." A line in the popular children's book "Going on a Bear Hunt", is strangely comparable to what walking through the grieving process to find healing is like. The pain does not go away over night but with both time and by engaging with someone considered safe and present, the healing can happen and hope, restored. As it may seem almost impossible at the moment, especially if your grief is new, you can have a "new normal", and enjoy life once again. Calling someone to process the experience is the first step to "getting through".

Licensed Professional Counselor

Grief counseling can help you, after the death of a loved one, reorient yourself in how you relate to the deceased, yourself, and your outside world. It includes facing the reality of this loss, finding ways to express and channel your pain, and then reconstruct your attachment from one in the physical realm to one of more symbolic interaction. Other ways you can be helped include developing a new sense of identity-revamping your way of being in the presence of your loved one and now without it. Along with this, I will help you articulate your losses, find healthy ways to compensate for them, and discover other avenues in which to make an emotional investment.
