My son committed suicide after a lengthy battle with addiction and depression. As a mother, I know what it is like to walk through unspeakable darkness and come out the other side. As a psychologist, I have the compassion, experience, and skills to help individuals move through the stages of grief and loss: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I offer hope when individuals feel helpless. It is possible to taste joy again.

Grief occurs when we experience any type of loss. The loss may be a person, a dream, a job, or anything else that we valued. It is normal and expected. However, sometimes the grief is so strong, or lasts so long, that you need help to move forward and rebuild your life. I will provide a safe place where you can say the things you want to say, feel what you feel, and begin to imagine what your life can look like as you move forward. I will walk with you as you look for the positives in your life and support you as you begin to overcome the obstacles that grief and loss leave in your path.

What have you lost? What deep sadness has you reading this, today? Do you struggle with regret, shattered: hope, self-esteem, promise? Are you having difficulty making sense of things? Yourself? Having trouble picking up the pieces and moving forward? Wondering if anyone else ever felt your same feelings in their circumstances? Is what you're feeling normal? What do you do with these feelings?! Do you feel overwhelmed, stuck, in shock? Does the anger surprise you? There are many different kinds of feelings that surface when you are dealing with loss, and grief is much more complicated than most people realize. Causes include: endings of any kind; beginnings of any kind; illness; love; life!

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.

PhD clinical psychology

Through therapy in my office clients are able to explore the complex feelings and reactions to loss. A supportive and nurturing environment is provided so clients feel comfortable sharing sensitive and emotionally charged memories in a safe place. We laugh, we cry we mourn together the loss that one has experienced. In a nonjudgmental fashion we explore how to hold onto the memories and feelings of grief. When the client is ready we explore how to propel forward despite the loss.

Grief and bereavement are natural emotions that we all will experience. In an adult’s lifetime, one will likely experience grief in a number of different relationships, including, but not limited to, the loss of a parent, spouse, sibling, friend, family member, co-worker, or child. Many factors play into how we will grieve including what the nature of the relationship was with the loss. Your journey through grief is unique. The same experiences which have shaped who you are will also affect how you experience and process grief and loss. Although your experience will be unique, there is much that is common about the grieving process. My approach to grief and loss counseling is to understan....

Michael Govan, MA, LLP, LPC, LSGC, EMDR II

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Waterford

I know personally what it is to experience loss. My clients sense I can relate to their unique situation, and are surprised to learn about the User-Friendly tools that help each person to maximize their recovery in a short period of time!!! I help them to determine their losses from the event and the feelings associated with these losses. Then we examine the consequences of the loss-feeling combinations. Often we use EMDR from there to settle the feelings and turn around any negative self-belief that has arisen from the losses. This turns out to be a fairly quick process even for those who have years of grief over their loss(es).

Licensed Psychologist

The most difficult part of life is experiencing the loss of a loved one. Nothing we experience is more painful than this. Despite this often incapacitating pain, with work and time, one can heal and overcome. When this occurs, one emerges from the pain as a new person, in ways that one could not formerly conceive. A large part of my work is guiding people through this process, as I am deeply familiar with it, both personally and professionally.

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 is a natural process everyone feels when they have experienced a loss. We can experience a loss not just in a loved one (or pet) but in lost opportunities, in divorce with the loss of the unity of a family, and a host of other losses. We suck it up and stuff it down until one day something is too big for us and then "everything" we've sucked up or stuffed down begins to surface like a flood. Grief is meant to be fluid (continually moving). Grief isn't something you "get over." It's something you "go through."

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.
