Sooner or later, each of us experience grief and loss. Though it is an unavoidable reality of life, it can be intensely painful and confusing. In my years of serving as a therapist, I have found that those who seek counseling recover more quickly. Surviving the deep waters of loss requires careful navigation. It is a process that requires hard work. Allow me to help you in the healing process.

Grief and loss is something we can't avoid in life. I have learned we need to face it and live through it. I personally know the pain caused by divorce and the death of family members having lost my son, Scott, at the age of 29. However, as we talk about it and share its pain, I believe we can get through the dark valleys of life to get to the other side.

Grief is a natural part of life; we will eventually have to say goodbye to everything we love and are connected to. Yet, for many of us, grief does not feel natural. Sometimes we might feel angry about our losses -- that life is unjust. We might be depressed and longing for our loved one's presence again. Grief is a process. It takes time to heal. Often, people think "what is the use of counseling when they won't bring my loved one back?" There can be healing inside you even if your loved one cannot come back. Don't be alone in your grief.

Masters Level Psychologist

Grief and loss are a part of everyone's life. But everyone copes with sorrow differently. Using empathy and personal life experiences I help clients understand the stages of grief as it can apply to death, divorce or moving. Teaching of the comforting role of the Holy Spirit is part of the growth through pain process.

The suffering you feel may cause deep heartache, but I am here to listen and provide support and understanding. In time, the pain will diminish and you will move on with your life. As a therapist I provide hope and guidance.

Grief Counselor

Julie Grant, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Everyone experiences loss (loss of loved ones, our own health/ability, our dreams, etc.) and we all need to grieve in our own unique way. The most frequent question people asked me when I was a hospice Bereavement Coordinator was, "Am I grieving normally?" Almost every time, the answer was a resounding "Yes!" While there are certain common experiences with grief, there are no hard and fast rules (or even steps, as some contend) and there are definitely no timetables.

I am a psychotherapist who understands life, especially after a significant loss, can feel like a daily struggle. No one should have to endure these feelings alone. I compassionately listen and support clients as well as offer a therapeutic counseling relationship that provides the opportunity to emotionally move forward and bring a healthy balance back into their lives. It is possible to heal, gain a sense of well-being, restore hope, and rekindle happiness even during the most challenging times.

Grief Counselor

Franklin Sollars, and Associates

Licensed Psychologist

Grief therapy aims to help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (e.g., divorce, major illness). Everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way, often shaped by culture. They believe that it is not uncommon for a person to withdraw from their friends and family and feel helpless; some might be angry. One can expect a wide range of emotion and behavior associated with grief. We believe that in all places and cultures, the grieving person benefits from the support of others.

Debbra Bronstad, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

While grief is our natural human response to loss, it can drain our energy and motivation for life. As a trained Grief Recovery specialist I join you in the journey as you review your relationship. Recovery from grief involves an accurate review of your relationship, looking at the positive and painful experiences. Together we discuss any regrets, guilt, joys and pain and take the specific steps necessary to complete your grief. The process generally takes about 7-10 sessions. It could take less or more time for you to experience significant relief from grief symptoms depending on the length and nature of your relationship, and other possible factors. Contact me today at (248) 929-5354.

Grief and loss are experienced not only when losing a loved one but when a relationship ends, a sex life declines and a person experiences a coming out process. The grief and loss attached to endings of a way of life can be just as devastating if not moreso. In death, the end is final. In grief involving relationships things change and grief can be prolonged. Coming out as LGBT one experiences loss of heterosexual privilege which can be painful. Losing trust with a spouse after cheating and affairs is hard to recover from and grief gets in the way of recovery.

Grief Counselor

Thomas Blume, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I believe that people's identities are intertwined, and therefore the loss of a significant person leaves gaps in our lives--even when we don't recognize them. We can recover, but we can't go back. Time helps, but what helps most is having someone who can hear the stories, both the painful ones and the joyful ones. A new story is already being written and with a trusted helper it can be a source of strength.

The grieving process is different for every individual and it happens at your own time and at your own pace. Feelings surrounding that grief and loss can vary and be very confusing to most people. Although grief and loss is a part of life but I don't think there is anything you can do to truly prepare for it. No one way of grieving is better than any other, so I can help you find your way!
