Heather Abbott, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Living with grief is a marathon. And every marathoner needs support and care along the way. Grief has and is changing you. How it changes you, and what road your grief takes you down is still to be determined. I see grief as a cocoon. A cocoon that we can nurture together so at the other side of grief you can come out - still you - although changed. It is a process that is earth shattering, but you do not have to be alone. Your resilience is there - waiting to guide you.

Your pain is real, but in good grief and loss counseling you will be given ample space to work through whatever mixed emotions you may be experiencing. I seek to offer gentle support, genuine understanding and provide tangible ways of coping with your grief.

Many times surprising emotions come up after a loss. Often much guilt, regret, anger and blame contribute to thoughts of what we could or should have done differently. These thoughts keep taking up space in the mind and stop us from processing and coming to terms with loss. I help clients during this difficult time by listening empathetically and using methods that help clients grieve in a healthy productive way. I help client find self-compassion, forgiveness and hope during this time time of adjustment.

Working with people experiencing grief I want to help illuminate all aspects of it, including past grief that has gone unresolved. Each grief causing event has a life cycle. And while most grief is never 100% worked through, the less it it has been processed the more it piggybacks on the next event as a layering effect. Just understanding this can help make sense of our feelings. This is a starting point.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I have been honored to work with many people who have lost a dear relationship. This is a pain where the circumstances cannot change, the loss is real and fundamentally changes the person who has experienced that loss. However, not all is lost and you still have a life to live. Often, people need someone outside of their friend/family group to process through the waves of anger and denial, guilt and fear. I like to remind my clients that grief will cycle through, but with each cycle they are growing stronger, standing on the gift of their loved ones' life and honoring them in their healing. You can heal and your loved one will not be forgotten.

Grief Counselor

Eric Borgh, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

411 West Mercer St, Seattle, Washington

How do you move on when desire, hope, a loved one, or the something core to you has been lost? I am hesitant to answer that question in words because I think that there are no cognitive solutions to loss. You may have experienced this. In some ways, the only way to work with the grief is to go straight through it. It is a difficult journey, one you may have just entered or one you may have found yourself in for years. I offer a caring hand in your journey through it.

Grief Counselor

Michelle Barenchi, MA, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

3301 Burke Ave N., Suite 220, Seattle, Washington

Grief may arise due to the loss of a loved one, a break-up of an emotionally intimate relationship, loss of a pet, loss of a job, and many other life events. Everyone experiences grief and loss in their own unique way. It is often accompanied by sadness, irritability, guilt, regret, anger and many other feelings. Whether you are experiencing any of these feelings or symptoms, or simply are having difficulty in your daily functioning, I can help to wade through the stressors causing you grief by teaching coping skills that you can use on your own.

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 thereā€”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

Lynn Buell, MSSW, LICSW

Psychoanalyst and psychotherapist

1111 E Lynn Street, Seattle, Washington

Working through grief and loss, while respecting needed defenses can take months if not years, but can enhance the quality of your life. We will respect defenses and consider a variety of emotions, which may include relief, anger, sadness, regret, fear and loneliness with my help. It is my strong believe that this process entails work and time, but can lead to personal growth, which can enhance your knowledge and appreciation of yourself and therefore enhance your capacity to be empathic with others.

Grief Counselor

Marcie Klevens, MA, LMHCA

Psychotherapist

4649 Sunnyside Avenue N Suite 341 Seattle, Washington 98103, Seattle, Washington

Is grief making it difficult to function in daily life, leaving you unable to enjoy living? Are you feeling overwhelmed by excessive bitterness, guilt or anger? Do you find yourself withdrawing from friends and family with near constant feelings of despair? If you find you answered yes to several or all of these questions, your grief may have evolved into clinical depression and it may be time to seek help. Be gentle with yourself, knowing there is no right or wrong way to grieve and all of your feelings are normal, even if it feels like you're going crazy. I will help you to understand what is happening to you and walk beside you as you move through your very personal grieving process.

Life has its challenges with facing loss. I believe counseling can be a powerful source of support when grief and sadness envelope the energy to life. Seeking support in this way is the first step in processing this loss and beginning the steps necessary to move forward. It is my pleasure to provide a safe environment and grieving space for the vital process of healing to take place.

Grief Counselor

Julie Holt, MA, LMHC

Psychotherapist

2366 Eastlake Avenue East, Suite 417, Seattle, Washington

Death of a loved one or loss of something significant in your life can creep up in ways you hadn't expected. My holistic way of looking at your situation and compassionate presence can help you explore your feelings and allow you deeper freedom to get through this difficult time. Finding the right fit with a counselor is of utmost importance. For that reason, if a client visits with me for the first visit and decides he or she does not want to continue on with me, that first session is absolutely free.

Grief Counselor

Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

You're sad and you don't know why. You cry and are confused. There are areas in your life where you have lost much and you don't know how to grieve it, or where to go to get help. You've heard well meaning friends tell you the pad answers, but you really just want someone to hold you and make it go away. Therapy is a sense of "emotional holding" that helps those feelings make more sense and as opposed to those feelings going away, we learn how to live within our grief and loss when we explore it.
