Grief & Loss

Bekah Larson, LPC, MAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

We need to grieve, whether it is small grief like not getting that part time job, or life changing...loosing a loved one. I want to give space for the hurricane of emotions that come with loss. I desire to be a gentle presence and to listen well. I want to help clients process their loss and slowly learn to embrace life in a new way afterward. Grieving takes time and gentleness. I want to offer both to my clients.

Grief and loss comes to and happens to everyone eventually. However, sometimes, there can be such traumatic events or compound losses that one may feel as though they have lost their footing or can't function. One may feel a multitude of emotions like sadness, anger, bitterness, and or relief. My goal is to provide a compassionate and understanding environment until one feels able to function effectively.

Grief & Loss

Perry Dodge, MS, MA, LPC, CPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

Much of life, whether we like it or not, involves saying goodbye. We say it to family members, to beloved friends, and even to careers and dreams. Sometimes we have a say in how our goodbyes happen; more often they’re forced upon us. Through Grief and Loss Counseling, I help clients learn how to express their grief and remorse in healthy, productive ways. They’re able to honor the departed and grieve their losses, while, at the same time, re-gain the clarity, energy and resilience needed for the life that’s before them. Deep sadness turns to hope and renewed purpose as they honor the past without staying stuck there.

Recovery from loss of a loved one - human or animal - can be a very up and down road. Sadness can linger and even turn into depression.

Karen Becker, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

There are times in everyone's life when we go through the loss of someone or something that we love. While the grieving process is common to all of us it is also very personal. Each person reacts to grief in their own unique way based on the nature of the relationship, the specific circumstances, and our own personality. I will help you through this process in a way that brings dignity and respect to that relationship. A path of meaning and healing is possible and you do not have to walk that path alone.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

You've heard "time heals all wounds", but that doesn't help you much now. You've told yourself to "get over it", but you can't. Trite phrases seldom help the depression and anxiety that accompanies significant grief and loss. You don't have to walk this painful journey alone. I have helped many persons work through the loss of a loved one(s) and the losses of material possessions, jobs, identity and life changes, painful parenting, divorce an other, broken relationships. Call, and let me help you, as well. More info on grief and loss may be found at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

Compassion and understanding are two key aspects of helping those grieving the loss of a loved one or relationship. I focus on helping to promote hope when feelings overwhelm one's ability to look beyond the hurt and sadness. Often, there is guilt or unresolved relational issues that complicate the grieving process. My approach emphasizes attaining a positive perspective of the loss and oneself, promoting positive self-worth.

Mike Diller, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

Often, when we experience deep hurt and sadness from the loss of a relationship, it seems impossible to ever feel a sense of contentment or acceptance. Through helping the client tell one's story and gain a renewed perspective related, healing and increased hope seems to follow. My approach emphasizes unconditional acceptance, empathy and compassion, and growth in one's spirituality.

Grief & Loss

Lisa Dierdorf, MA, PLPC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Florissant, MO

My approach to grief counseling is to listen with an open heart and an open ear while holding a space where you can feel safe to share your unique grief story. In sharing your story you begin to process your grief, and ultimately you learn to integrate the loss into your life in a way that feels appropriate and right for you. My approach to this process is always with deep compassion and without judgment.
