Prior to engaging in either individual counseling or a support group, you start with an initial consultation with one of our counselors. During this consultation, we will have a preliminary discussion about your loss and what you are hoping to seek with our assistance. We will discuss what services will be most beneficial for you and the cost of those services.
The initial consultation will last 30-60 minutes and only needs to be completed once if you are seeking both individual counseling and support groups.
When families experience a collective loss, it is not uncommon for long-standing roles to change, financial issues to arise, and emotions to run high. Strong emotions can cause people to act out of character or be more sensitive to differing opinions. Navigating all of this can be quite challenging. We can help.
Your family is invited to come to the office. One of our skilled social workers will facilitate a one-hour session to help navigate some of these issues.
We can help businesses and corporations dealing with an upcoming or recent loss. These consultations are designed specifically to the circumstances around the business and loss.
Please reach out to our office if you are interested in a consultation. The rate for these consultations and services vary depending on the request.
Our counselors provide a comforting, empathetic, and nonjudgmental space for you to share and process your grief. These sessions will be an hour in length and will occur at a frequency determined by you and your counselor. Click below to read more about insurance and our sliding fee scale.
Grief can be sometimes be hard at best and completely soul crushing at worst. Depending on the nature of your relationship with the person who died and/or the cause of their death, some need professional help processing their grief. If you are one of those people, please reach out to us. We're happy to provide guidance in processing your grief.
Children and adolescents experience grief differently than adults. Many adults struggle to understand their own grief, let alone help their child process theirs. Our counselors will not only work with your child to process their grief, but also work with their parents/guardians on how to best process their grief together.
Anticipatory grief is grief that is experienced before a death. Both the individual with a terminal or chronic condition as well as the individuals surrounding them will likely experience anticipatory grief. We can work with any individual experiencing anticipatory grief to better prepare them for the impending death.
We understand that coming to our office is not always possible or feasible. Therefore, we are happy to offer tele or video counseling as an option so you can engage in counseling wherever is best for you. We do ask that your space be private with as few of distractions as possible. Please note: Our counselors are licensed in both Ohio and Michigan. Due to licensing restrictions, clients must be physically located in either of these states when counseling occurs.
Our support groups provide a safe, trusted place to experience, process, and cope alongside others who are also grieving a similar loss. While many support groups in the community are peer lead, all of our groups are staffed by a licensed professional. We are committed to offering more than general support groups because grief varies significantly depending on the age of the person who experienced the loss, the nature of the relationship to the person who died, and/or the cause of their death. While grief can be isolating, our hope is that you find a sense of belonging and togetherness in these specialized groups.
