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.

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.

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.

Grief Counselor

Katie Kibort, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Everyone experiences grief or loss sometime during their lives. Whether you lose someone close to you or you lose a job, no one escapes the painful, sad feelings these events can bring. My therapy techniques help clients understand that grieving is a necessary process in order to come to terms with their conflicting states of mind. Because grief can have many stages, my goal is to support clients in their efforts to unravel the confusion they feel as a result of the anteceding event and find a way to accept the circumstances they have been given to live with.

Everyone has experienced loss, from the death of a loved one to the loss of a job; from a deeply broken relationship to the diagnosis of a life-altering illness. Facing the grief that comes with each loss is difficult but incredibly important to healing and restoration. I seek to create an environment where you feel safe to explore your grief and find healing at your own pace.
