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.

Whether grieving over a lost loved one or a lost relationship, healing and comfort are not unreachable! Grief can occur from multiple losses including death, divorce, break-ups, family rifts, location moves, unemployment or any other area of life. Although there is no instant cure for the pain that accompanies grief, the hope we offer through therapy is to walk with you through the pain of loss until you are strong enough to walk alone.

Bereavement refers specifically to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger, and the process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to what was lost, and other factors. MCS can help individuals process and understand their grief & loss feelings

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.

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.

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.
