Grief Counselor

Basil Steele, LMHC, LCPC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

3948A Kaimuki Avenue, Portland, Maine

From my perspective, how grief is experienced can differ significantly from person to person. Consequently, I place considerable emphasis on being present to whatever a person brings into the room whether it be profound sadness, anger, numbness, regret, self-blame, or any other emotion. I think it is very important to convey the willingness to bear witness without judgment. If a person appears stuck and is struggling to move out of a more complicated, entrenched experience of grief, my approach becomes more cognitive and solution focus without sacrificing the depth of presence I believe is necessary when offering service to someone suffering from such a profound loss.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Portland, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it.

If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Portland may have flexibility or sliding scales
