"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".

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

There are many different kinds of losses: loss of a loved one through death, loss of a loved one for some other reason, loss of a spouse due to divorce or separation, loss of a job, loss of a home, loss of financial resources, loss of health, loss of a pet, etc. The loss of hopes and dreams can be devastating. When these feelings of grief are put aside without being addressed, then the unresolved grief can affect you in unexpected ways. However, by allowing yourself to grieve and to work through these losses with a caring counselor, then you can come to a place of healing and hope again.

Lorraine Wrage, M.Ed., LPC, CST

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Therapist

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.

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.
