Licensed Professional Counselor

Everyone faces grief and loss, whether it’s over a romantic relationship or a job ending, a physical health problem, or the death of a loved one. We offer support to face grief, understand it, follow the innate mourning process, and integrate the change into life and your sense of self. We offer a safe place to explore the range of emotions which accompany loss, which really matters when friends and family don’t know how to stay with and witness the pain and sorrow. Grieving has its own demands and pace, and we will stay with you through it.

Losing someone we love is painful. Loss that is left unprocessed, beneath the radar of our hearts, however, can seriously impact our personal lives and key relationships. Grief that is felt and expressed, on the other hand, can strengthen and enrich life. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are essential ways to make grieving a meaningful experience.

Grief encompasses a broad range of feelings and behaviors that are common after a loss. Sadness is the most common feeling . It is common and expected to experience sadness if you have lost someone you love. One of the most important factors in healing is having support. Even if you are not normally comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstance, it is important to have some place where you can express them when your grieving. We can help you gain an understanding of your feelings and provide you coping strategies for dealing with the loss.

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046

Using an eclectic approach tailored to the unique demands of my clients, I will help you to create a safe place to process your primary and secondary losses, your feelings, and support in developing resilience, meaning, and adaptive coping strategies to deal with the roller-coaster common with grief. I make use of various tools in-session and through assigned homework to help support your grief processing and adaptation. I follow the two contemporary models of loss adaptation, which include Martin and Doka's model of adaptive grieving (intuitive and instrumental) styles and Stroebe and Schut's Dual Process Model (loss-orientation and restoration orientation).

It is human to try to avoid emotional pain. There are many ways of doing this: overeating, drinking too much, overworking, developing “anger” issues, becoming depressed and unmotivated, cultivating addictions that give us temporary relief but create other problems in our lives. Eventually, avoidance can backfire and become a destructive force. By helping clients identify and process their grief and experience their feelings gradually and safely, it becomes possible to move on while honoring losses and to reconnect with a sense of aliveness, gratitude, and passion.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Grieving? Lose someone or something? Grief and loss can be overwhelming. Connecting with the loss is an important aspect of the process as well as finding what growth can be achieved through it. We ask questions like - "Does God care". These are very real and normal feelings. Though Christ suffered also, entering into that is not pleasant. I provide a listening ear. Contact me.

Everyone reacts to death differently. Some become numb and will eventually disconnect from friends. Despair sets in as the reality of the loss settles. The grieving process can be long and isolating. My objective is to counsel the soul with methods generated by the Spirit of God. So that the process is in reliance to Him. Receiving reassurance and feeling understood is also part of the counseling process and will make the recovery process more complete during one of life's most challenging times. Even Jesus wept. It is okay to do so. It is both natural and biblical to grieve. It is part of the healing process that I look forward to helping you through. You are not alone.

My approach in therapy is to provide a safe and compassionate place for you to journey through the stages of grief resulting in new hope for the future. I believe that accepting our losses and learning to grieve well is a powerful tool for emotional and spiritual growth.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Washington, The District of Columbia 20052

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.

Anita Gadhia-Smith, PsyD, LCSW-C, LICSW

Psychotherapist

2500 Q Street, NW, Suite 237, Washington, District of Columbia 20007

Grief and loss are some of the most difficult issues we can encounter. The feelings can be very intense and feel as though they will never end. All feelings have a beginning, a middle, and an end. As we move through the stages of grief, we can feel confused about what is normal and what is to be expected. Seeking help will allow you to move through your issues more quickly and effectively. I will assist you in moving through the grief process towards healing and expanded growth.

Marsha Lucas, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

1350 Connecticut Ave, NW at Dupont Circle, Washington, District of Columbia 20036

As much as any of us might wish grief and loss weren't a part of life, if we can integrate them into who you become, we really do grow to a better version of ourselves. The pain of grief isn't something to "get over," and the messages we sometimes get from others to do it can lead to withdrawal, more pain, and more feelings of loss. Working through your grief isn't about "closure" -- trying to close the door on your sadness and loss doesn't serve you. But with support, you can find your way forward to growth, joy, and a fuller life.

Reginald Cunningham, EdD, LPC, LCPC

Counseling Psychologist

2000 P Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, District of Columbia 20036

Though I don't pathologies grief and loss, I help to prevent it from continuing to burden your life by (1) allowing you to freely talk about the deceased; (2) assisting with distinguishing grief from a traumatic event, and (3) assist you in dealing with any guilt and effectively organize your grief. We support persons encountering grief, adjusting to loss, in need of bereavement care, as well as seeking support while facing an anticipated loss.
