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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been helping clients deal with loss for more than two decades. When you lose someone, or something, dear to you, the reality can be extremely painful and the great sadness you feel can be exacerbated with feelings you might not have expected: anger, shock, even guilt. Although you will likely grieve differently than others (we all grieve in our own way), it is important for your own emotional health and healing that you do go through it and working with a trained, experienced therapist like myself can ease and shorten the process. “Loss” is not only caused by death. It can be caused by divorce, loss of a job or career (retirement can cause emotional trauma), loss of youth and/or health, even relocating to a new town. I am working with clients in...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.
