Grief Counselor

Thomas Blume, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of White Lake

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.

People experience grief in a number of different ways. There is no right or wrong way , nor is there a timeline that is "normal." Our therapists help clients move through the grieving process at a pace and way that is unique to each client. If you or a loved one are experiencing grief resulting in unrelenting distress, a Thriveworks therapist can help.

Recognizing that people deal with loss and grief in a variety of ways that are unique to who they are, there prior experiences with loss and grief, I meet each person where they are at a attempt to faciliate them through the grieving process via their uniqueness. In addition, I educate clients on the different feelings, etc. that they might be experiencing and help them label it in a way that makes sense for them and who they are.

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 Counselor

Julie Grant, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of White Lake

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.

Grief Counselor

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

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of White Lake

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).

Clinical Therapist

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 Counselor

Marilyn Kistler, MA, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of White Lake

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.

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.

Grief Counselor

Kim Snyder, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC

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."

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

Sally Palaian, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

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.
