My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

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.

Grief Counselor

Benita A. Esposito, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

Within driving distance of Clarkston

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.

Summer Gray, MS, LPC, CIRT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Imago Therapist

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.

Grief Counselor

Daniel Gopin, LAPC

Licensed Associate Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Clarkston

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 Counselor

Debra Dantzler, PhD, LPC, MAC, EAS-C, NCC, CPCS

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.
