We serve people who are struggling with grief, as well as those who struggle with other life challenges.  

Counseling services are available to children, teens, and adults who are looking for support after experiencing the death of a loved one. We provide Individual, Couples, and Family counseling options. Clinicians are caring, licensed professionals who are trained in grief and trauma. Services are tailored to each individual and their unique circumstances. If an individual has experienced trauma in relation to their loss, we offer a number of trauma therapies to address these effects. We welcome and serve all who seek support in their grief journey.

Preschool Age

We believe that all children grieve a loss; however, they are not all developmentally ready to work through their grief with the help of a professional. It’s difficult for young children under the age of six to talk about their grief at a scheduled time. When young children are feeling their grief, they express it in the moment  - sometimes verbally, but often through their behaviors. It is important for the parents and caregivers to understand how their young child experiences grief so that they can better support them through the process. Children younger than six are not typically provided sessions with a clinician, however the focus of clinical care is directed to the parent/caregiver, so they can be provided tools to emotionally support the grieving child.

Elementary and Middle School Age

Children understand the finality of death, and are more capable of working through their grief with the help of a professional. Due to their cognitive development, it can be difficult for children to express their grief verbally. Through the use of books, games, and art and creative therapy, we help children understand their emotions and learn healthy ways to cope. The clinician also keeps open communication with the parent/caregiver to provide parenting support.

High School Age

The adolescent’s experience with grief is unique. They are not children, nor are they adults. We use various creative therapies to help adolescents in their grief journey.

Adults

Adults are not able to experience grief in a vacuum. They also have the added stressors of work, family, and personal life. There may be new financial and social challenges presented by the loss. In addition to addressing their feelings of grief, adults often benefit from support around some of these important factors that can complicate their grief journey. Clinicians provide evidence-based therapy to assist clients through their grief journey.

Couples & Family Counseling 

Members of a family who have experienced the same loss grieve very differently. A couple or family session can offer the ability for all involved to come together in a supportive environment to share their grief with one another and begin to learn ways to cope as both individuals and as a family.
