Grief and loss are always so very personal and each of us experiences them differently. I will help you explore your loss, whether it be a relationship or a death. I will help you come to terms with the issues involved so that you can move on with your life at a pace that meets your needs. There are workbooks, books to read, groups to join, and CD's to listen to.

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.

Athough grief is often intense and may feel like depression, it normally eases over time. When you become stuck in deep sadness, regret, and an inability to move on or when there was a trauma associated with the death, I can help you resolve the grief and find peace. I use gentle compassionate strategies to support your acceptance and return to a more satisfying life. You will learn to let go, to resolve regrets, and to enjoy life again.

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.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

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.

Relying on personal (death of spouse/other family members/close friends) as well as professional training and experience, Grief Therapy is one of my specialties, including therapy for those affected by a loved one's suicide. Your grief journey is unique, and each loss is different. Therapy can help you to successfully navigate your way through the grief process and to learn that much of what you feel is a normal, natural part of the painful and often difficult grief process.

Grief Counselor

James McClymonds, Psy.D., HSPP

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Merrionette Park

While everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time, losing a loved one feels devastating. Furthermore, grief can be complicated by other conditions such as depression and level of dependence on the departed. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way to manage grief symptoms and cope with stressors from the loss. When you see me for grief & loss therapy, we will discuss how the grief is impacting your life and create a plan together to accelerate the healing process without losing any healthy emotional connections with the deceased. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

Grief Counselor

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Merrionette Park

Throughout our lives, we all experience grief and loss. Sometimes these occasions are more easily experienced than others. It is helpful to have someone for support, to hear you out on all of the emotions that are going on with the grief and loss. No two people will experience grief and loss the same, and each of us will have different ways and timelines to cope. Particularly in the area of fertility, grief and loss can be recurrent and persistent. I will utilize mindfulness strategies as well as offer support in guiding you through your experiences.

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.
