Thrive Counseling offers both individual and group grief support programs for grieving children, adolescents and their families/guardians. Dealing with grief because of death and loss of loved ones has never been easy and for parents it’s hard to know which symptoms are normal grief responses and which spell trouble in kids. Grieving the loss of family or friends may go on for years in some cases and can be a life changing situation. Grief is an emotion we wish could be reserved only for adults, but the reality is, grief does not discriminate. That is why it is so important to have caring support in times of bereavement and grief. Children and teens many times have problems dealing with grief bec....

Grief & Loss

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

Wendy Dickinson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

2964 Peachtree Road Suite 760, Atlanta, GA 30305

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

Dr. Smith's approach to Grief and loss is not to place anyone in a box but understand the grieving process from the clients perspective.

Grief & Loss

Sheri Hardin, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Atlanta, GA

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

Grief & Loss

Terry Thompson Horn, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

2200 Century Parkway NE, #120, Atlanta, GA 30345

My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.
