Grief affects our lives in many different ways. Often we are not aware of its impact physically, emotionally or spiritually or how a loss has impacted us even years later. REACH Counseling Services offers support that encompasses all these dimensions and understand that grief and loss can be healed and that life can move forward with hope and healing. We use a variety of approaches to help you deal with loss and grief.

The grieving process can be different for every individual. It is also an opportunity to make meaning out of our loss. My approach is to help in the meaning making process and help with working toward a sense of acceptance. I have years of experience helping individuals through the grieving process and focus on how sense can be made of loss and how to grow through this painful human experience.

Grief is our response to loss. Grief, fully experienced, allows us to go on with life. Each person's response is unique. You may be grieving the death of a loved one; you may be dealing with a serious illness; you may be mourning the loss of a relationship; you may be dealing with the loss of a job. Wherever you are in the grief process, I offer a safe, empathetic relationship to guide you through the stages of anger, sadness, justifying, letting go. We will work together to facilitate healing.

Grief can be all-consuming, a heavy gray cloud that envelops us and leaves us feeling disoriented and alone. We lose sight of the precious things around us, and instead find ourselves stung by grief's bitter winds and blinded by its dark fog. It is in those times that we need a helping hand to reach out to us through the gray, and walk alongside us when we don't know where our next step will land. Counseling is that walking alongside. Through therapy together, we learn how to be with both grief and life in tandem. We learn how to hold our sadness tenderly and with loving kindness, while also holding the joys and gifts of the present moment.

Grieving and loss is part of life. While we all share aspects of this life event, it is an individual experience and needs to be addressed with care and respect. It is an opportunity for individual growth and it can have an impact on our relationships to others including siblings and spouses as well as many aspects of our life including the spiritual dimension of our being and our questioning of the meaning of life. Sometimes it is useful to work with narrative, memories and dreams. There is not one way to feel, to act or to be as one grieves. It just is.

Grief and loss are inevitable in life, and can be our times of greatest pain, and also sometimes, greatest growth. Most people think first about the death of a loved one when they think about grief, but it also be the loss of a home, a friend, a marriage, a job, and so on. These events can sometimes also lead to profound grief. Often friends don't understand or know what to say. Sometimes, they even seem to disappear, when you're needing them most. You're not alone if you've experienced some of these phenomena. I'd like to help you through this painful time.

Grief Counselor

Brigette Potgieter, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Grief and Loss is an often overlooked experience of modern life. Death of a loved-one is usually when we acknowledge actively grieving. However, life is in many ways a series of losses (life shifts) and with each loss comes the necessity to grieve. When we do not navigate our losses with the process of actively grieving, each new loss compounds those that came before. Learning how to honour your heart as a source of strength and wisdom through loss - even though it's hurting - is your path to greater strength and resilience in life. Support is available through divorce/separation, ill health, unemployment, "empty nesters," loss of pet, trauma, loss of a relationship, moving, ageing.

Grief Counselor

Sam Romirowsky, Ph.D

Psychologist

Within driving distance of West Chester

There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

Grief Counselor

Cheryl Sparks, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Experiencing a difficult loss is disorienting and can feel paralyzing. It can also bring up pain from the past that you thought was long gone, or cause you to question your view of the world. This is difficult but normal. It is important to talk about your grief with someone who really understands. I offer a safe place to work through your grief in your own way, without rushing, without having to put on a pretend smile or a brave face. I cannot undo your loss, but therapy can help you begin to find meaning in it, to make sense of the world again, and to find practical ways to cope.

I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you can share the painful, feelings of grief and loss you are experiencing. Sometimes these feelings are quite normal and sometimes traumatic. They can even generate feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. My clients learn to shift their perceptions and attitudes and see the profound opportunity for healing, growth, transition and change. They learn to choose peace over conflict, forgiveness over grievances and light over darkness. In addition to safety and caring I offer you a wide variety of therapeutic tools and techniques (cognitive, emotional, behavioral, energetic, relational and spiritual) to greatly accelerate your healing pro
