As a pediatric therapist, I have helped children, teens, and young adults work through may different types of loss, from the sudden death of a parent or grandparent, the loss that comes as the result of a parents' divorce, or the many losses associated with foster care and adoption. Therapy can provide a place for your child to grieve the loss of any important person in their life.

Grief is a natural way to deal with loss. Sadness, tears, sorrow and sometimes guilt can add to the feelings of loss. When grieving interferes with your everyday functioning is when it becomes a problem. I use narrative therapy, behavior modification and relaxation training to help with this issue. Being able to forgive oneself for the things we didn't do is an important step in recovery.

Grief creates shifts in our lives that can leave us temporarily feeling alone, lost and unsteady. Studies show that individuals that seek support during this difficult season, can actually shorten the grief period, and are less likely to experience "complicated grief". It would be my honor to journey with you during this difficult season. I look forward to hearing from you.

Grief Counselor

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Within driving distance of Blue Island

Loss and the resulting grief are a natural part of life. We never know what will bring the grieving process into our experience, whether it be the loss of a loved one, a job, a child, a way of life or feeling as if we are losing our sense of identity. My approach to grief is one rooted in compassion and helping each person find their own sense of self-compassion for the process of acceptance and moving forward with a renewed sense of spirit. We will always remember the loss but it is important to travel through it without allowing grief to hold our hearts down. I will help you mindfully walk through the sadness and anger that so often accompanies loss.

Grief Counselor

Louise Dimiceli-Mitran, MA, MT-BC, FAMI

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)

Within driving distance of Blue Island

Losing someone you love, a job or something important to you is a life-changing event. Your stories and feelings need to be shared and heard. Some have a tendency to simply shut down when dealing with such grief. Guided imagery, music and other nonverbal techniques can help you begin to grieve the loss, acknowledge the gifts you have received from that person or situation and begin the readjustment to move gently forward. Your experience of the world is altered and it takes time to find out who you are now, what you need and what you want. We will explore how to do that in a way that's right for you.

Grief Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Blue Island

There are multiple forms of loss, ranging from lost friendship to to the loss of a loved one, which could be a pet or a person. I would encourage open communication about feelings and strongly believe that an individual's feelings should not be judged or criticized. I would also encourage the individual to allow sufficient time to recover from their loss; there is no "right" amount of time to process a loss.

We have developed a model of grief and loss for adults and children. Dr. Kalyani Gopal has written a work book particularly for children. Initial intake focuses on the acute and chronic nature of the condition. The severity of the condition is determined by administering questionnaires and inventories. After carrying out a risk assessment, patient's need for medication is determined and, if needed, appropriate referral is made. We carefully monitor the patient condition. We use supportive and cognitive-behavioral approaches and at times eclectic method to achieve the desired goals.

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Grief Counselor

Janet Wichmann, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Blue Island

Grief and loss is like a deep well where pain lives. Counseling is a process that allows you to talk about your loved one or the loss you've experienced in an on-going way until healing begins to occur. This is not a conversation you have with friends or family very often as most people don't know how to handle your grief or loss. I've worked with many grieving individuals and somehow we find a way to find life and live it fully again.
