Grief and loss are necessary feelings of pains in our life. Sometime this pain, or confusion or many other feelings can overwhelm us, leaving us feeling vulnerable and afraid. Someone to help you manage these difficult feelings and find your way back to a world that is rich and rewarding is something I would recommend. And something I do.

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.

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.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

"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 is a process and the length of grief will vary. Grief needs to be respected to be addressed and we live in a society that wants people to "get over it" quickly. People also want to get out of pain as quickly as possible. Grieving and mourning needs to be faced and supported. When people get stuck in issues such as anger or even guilt, they often need assistance with addressing these issues. Therapy is beneficial with these issues. Depending on how the person died, there may be some trauma accompanying grief as well. At times addressing the trauma may be necessary.

Dr. Smith's approach to Grief and loss is not to place anyone in a box but understand the grieving process from the clients perspective. It is with great concern that I take care of my patient's and show empathy in it's highest regard for those who are dealing with the loss of a love one. Common reasons for seeking therapy include difficulty adjusting to life changes and transitions, coping with traumatic life experiences, and difficulty managing feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and anger. Other common issues include dissatisfaction in significant relationships, parenting challenge’s, and issues related to body image and unhealthy eating patterns.

We offer a listening ear, a place to honor the loss, and a compass to find your direction again. I have a spiritual background with an advanced degree in theology in addition to my education and training in couseling to help you come to answers that help you begin the healing process.

Grief Counselor

Terry Thompson Horn, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Lithonia

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.

Board Cert. Christian Counselor, CTC

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.
