Transformative Growth Counseling, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors

"As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive." Grief and loss comes in all forms - from job loss to death of a loved one. Emotional based therapy will help you cope with the loss and adjust to a "new normal". I'll help you explore the loss, your grieving process, and help you find closure.

Losing someone we love can be difficult. Being able to talk to someone who understands you can make a difference to your grieving process and make it easier. I want to hear about your loved ones and how they impacted your life. I will walk with you during your journey through grief, through the good days and bad. I have experience in a hospice setting with both children and adult patients. I can help you and your family members personally or teach parents to walk with their own children though this journey.

Processing a loss or trauma occurs in many ways, starting with talking. Losses by death of family and friends are likely our greatest losses in life. Maybe you didn't consider retirement, moving away, a serious heath diagnosis, or the end of a longterm friendship as a loss. Loss is actually uncontrollable change. Talking about how you are feeling is how you begin to let go. Time does not really heal all wounds. It is what you do with time that heals the wound.

Grief counseling applies to many types of loss, not just death. Counseling for loss can be an opportunity to memorialize the person, relationship, or experience you lost. Counseling should include the joy and laughter of the loss as well as the sadness and pain. Uncomplicated grief counseling can be short-term, 1-6 sessions, and is covered by insurance in many cases.

Karen Bridwell, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

2210 Dean Street, Suite F-1, Saint Charles, IL

The death of a loved one is a natural occurrence in an individual’s lifetime, but sometimes death is sudden and unexpected and can turn our world upside down. People may have difficulty processing their emotions after such an event, and as a result, their ability to function may be impacted as well. This may also be the case after dissolution of a marriage or other meaningful relationships, a health crisis resulting in declining abilities or causing disability, loss of employment, and a host of other circumstances in life that induce overwhelming feelings of grief/loss. Karen will support such an individual as they process their feelings associated with the grief/loss.

The key areas of grief and loss is learning to create what is known as a "new normal". This new normal can be created after a death, loss of job or even the loss of a relationship like divorce. Being able to understand the grief steps and what to expect brings hope to individuals and families who may have just had what they once new as normal completely change sometimes overnight.
