Lori McCabe, LCSW-R

Therapist/Clinical Social Worker

There are at least 40 different kinds of loss that people can experience during their lives; the grief reaction to loss is normal and natural. Often, the loss people experience is isolated and intellectualized. But people do not have broken heads, they have broken hearts. I am a certified grief recovery specialist through the internationally established Grief Recovery Institute. In addressing loss issues, I offer emotional safety and validation as well as providing a structured process for healing. No one "gets over" an emotional loss. Instead, through the grief recovery process, one can learn how to survive a loss and potentially thrive.

Everyone experiences grief differently. And everyone expresses grief differently. My first priority is to understand the very personal meaning of each loss that is shared with me. I strive to provide an environment that feels safe for sharing the feelings of a deep personal loss. Affirming the validity of someone's emotional pain can lead to profound healing.

Experiencing grief and loss is difficult and often heartbreaking. We can experience grief when we lose a loved one, pet, or significant other. We can even experience grief and loss when we lose a job or hobby that we love. Without support, grief and loss can leave you feeling hopeless. We are often pressured to "hurry up and get over it" in our busy society, and I am here to tell you that the grieving process has no time line and is individual to each person and loss. Allow me to help you through this hard time with empathy and experience.

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Grief and loss are a powerful experience with many aspects and dimensions. No two people go through it the same. And we have much loss in our lives, besides our loved ones, and each is a mourning experience. Loss is part of life, but it doesn't have to be only a negative experince. When worked with properly, such experiences can be transformative, and fuel your growth.

Grief Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief Counselor

Margaret Masci, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Hypnotherapist

Within driving distance of East Rochester

We all experience loss in our lives and grieve those losses in various ways. From lost jobs or relationships to the overwhelming emptiness at the death of a child or other beloved family member. It can be tough. There is no time limit to grief. Give yourself permission to grieve fully and allow those feelings the time and compassion they deserve. However, if depression deepens and your grief becomes so debilitating that it keeps you from being with those you love or prevents you doing what you love, talk to someone who will help you get back on your feet. Find some peace of mind while still keeping alive those precious memories you wish to keep. You are not alone. Call for help.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Has it been difficult for you to cope with a painful loss in your life? Are you feeling like you should have been "over" it by now, but it still feels like the loss was just yesterday? I will work with you to explore and identify what barriers there are that could be preventing you from moving in a forward direction in your life. Coping with loss doesn't mean forgetting who or what is gone, nor does it necessarily mean going back to the way life was before it happened. Through the help of my treatment, we will work on your being able to live a fulfilling and meaningful life today as you work toward coming to terms with the difficult changes that you have been through.
