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.

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 and loss comes in many different shapes and sizes, but the common denominator is that the heart is badly broken. In grief counseling, I help clients explore their broken heart and assist them to learn "to dance with the limp" (Ann Lamott). If you feel like you've experienced a loss of someone or something that was so meaningful to you, you probably feel like a piece of you has been taken away. I will assist you to reconnect with those parts of you that are missing and to learn how to find joy and meaning in your life.

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.

Therapeutic support for grief and loss, along with life transitions counseling can be beneficial to those who have experienced losses such as the death of a loved one, a miscarriage, a separation or divorce, a job loss, the loss of one's health, or the loss of something dear to them. With over 10 years of experience in Hospice, I offer the dedicated and compassionate professional support you need to help you navigate through the shock, sadness, and emptiness, and arrive at a place of peace and healing.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach, Brain Health Coach

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 Counselor

Lorraine Wrage, M.Ed., LPC, CST

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of Canton

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".

Grief Counselor

Benita A. Esposito, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

Within driving distance of Canton

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole again.

I assist clients in working trough their grief and finding meaning in the painful situation they find themselves in. Counseling can give the type of support that may not be available from family and friends. Grief is complicated and no two people experience it in the same way. Working together with clients I help them become strong and able to enjoy their life again.

Experiencing a loss can turn your world upside down. While others' lives continue on, you find yourself hurting and unsure about how to carry on. Perhaps you are experiencing this now. I have worked with many clients, providing a safe space for those grieving the death of a loved one or loss of a significant relationship due to divorce or separation. In our time together, I invite you to share and process any feeling you are experiencing, including shock, anger, depression, confusion, and jealousy. Together we take time to honor your loss and clarify what you need day-to-day moving forward.

Grief and loss is a part of every life. Sometimes we can become stuck in a rut and be unable to move on with our lives. Having someone come alongside you and help carry that burden can make all the difference. I believe in the healing power of art when words fail and the healing found in the therapeutic relationship. Many are traumatized by the losses they have endured and only need to reach out for help.
