Grief Counselor

Lisa Dierdorf, MA, PLPC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

My approach to grief counseling is to listen with an open heart and an open ear while holding a space where you can feel safe to share your unique grief story. In sharing your story you begin to process your grief, and ultimately you learn to integrate the loss into your life in a way that feels appropriate and right for you. My approach to this process is always with deep compassion and without judgment.

Much of life, whether we like it or not, involves saying goodbye. We say it to family members, to beloved friends, and even to careers and dreams. Sometimes we have a say in how our goodbyes happen; more often they’re forced upon us. Through Grief and Loss Counseling, I help clients learn how to express their grief and remorse in healthy, productive ways. They’re able to honor the departed and grieve their losses, while, at the same time, re-gain the clarity, energy and resilience needed for the life that’s before them. Deep sadness turns to hope and renewed purpose as they honor the past without staying stuck there.

We need to grieve, whether it is small grief like not getting that part time job, or life changing...loosing a loved one. I want to give space for the hurricane of emotions that come with loss. I desire to be a gentle presence and to listen well. I want to help clients process their loss and slowly learn to embrace life in a new way afterward. Grieving takes time and gentleness. I want to offer both to my clients.

There are times in everyone's life when we go through the loss of someone or something that we love. While the grieving process is common to all of us it is also very personal. Each person reacts to grief in their own unique way based on the nature of the relationship, the specific circumstances, and our own personality. I will help you through this process in a way that brings dignity and respect to that relationship. A path of meaning and healing is possible and you do not have to walk that path alone.

You've heard "time heals all wounds", but that doesn't help you much now. You've told yourself to "get over it", but you can't. Trite phrases seldom help the depression and anxiety that accompanies significant grief and loss. You don't have to walk this painful journey alone. I have helped many persons work through the loss of a loved one(s) and the losses of material possessions, jobs, identity and life changes, painful parenting, divorce an other, broken relationships. Call, and let me help you, as well. More info on grief and loss may be found at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Compassion and understanding are two key aspects of helping those grieving the loss of a loved one or relationship. I focus on helping to promote hope when feelings overwhelm one's ability to look beyond the hurt and sadness. Often, there is guilt or unresolved relational issues that complicate the grieving process. My approach emphasizes attaining a positive perspective of the loss and oneself, promoting positive self-worth.

Grief Counselor

Katie Kibort, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Dupo

Grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind; death, divorce, faith or career. Regardless of the reason why, the resulting emotions are very powerful and often conflicting. My approach to grief and loss is to use cognitive behavioral approaches to process the emotions and help my client reclaim control over them. Often clients get stuck in trying to find a logical answer to the "why" instead of processing the emotional effect on their life. I can help with the process.

Recovery from loss of a loved one - human or animal - can be a very up and down road. Sadness can linger and even turn into depression. If you are struggling to make sense of a loss or to regain your equilibrium and life, talking to a therapist can be of great benefit. Whether your loss was recent or years ago, you can achieve a sense of closure and peace.

Sometimes it is very difficult to heal from grief and loss. Whether you have lost a spouse, a parent, a child or a close friend, the loneliness and grief can be overwhelming. I offer a gentle and compassionate approach when someone has experienced a loss. I want you to be able to come and share about your loved one and come along side you to help you through your grieving process. I want to help you find comfort and help you sort out where to go from here.

"Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted." The pain of losing someone never quite fully goes away, but my hope is that you will benefit from being comforted as you grieve the loss of someone close to you. Grief has an important place in life and as we walk through this difficult time together you'll begin to make sense of the pain that may be overwhelming you. However, you may also learn some important truths about life, purpose and meaning.
