Loss of a loved one is many times a long and painful process. Sudden death is very traumatic but a long illness or the disintegration of a relationship can be just as devastating and taxing on an individual. And in some cases it is even more devastating.
Transitional counseling is designed to help long term care givers cope with a long term, as well as physically and emotionally taxing situation.
Divorce can be as devastating and emotionally difficult problem as a sudden death or long term care giving. This is particularly true for couples who have been married for many years and now find themselves without a partner for the first time. Many are not able to cope.
Grief, loss and bereavement counseling:
This program is aimed at individuals that have endured a sudden loss or did not have the ability to prepare for the inevitable death or loss of a loved one including divorce.
Types of sessions:
There are two types of sessions:
This service is designed for those who find it difficult or a reluctant to express them selves in a group situation. In some cases the problem may not be suitable for group discussions. The required evaluation process will determine where you best fit.
Group counseling is a very valuable tool for those who qualify. A group allows the individual to share their feelings with others who are in the same or similar situation.
For most the group provides a safe environment and can be very effective as a means of healing. Not all problems can be addressed in a group situation nor are all individuals suited for group counseling. A thorough evaluation of your problem as well as your suitable for group counseling is part of the program.

Once you have determined that you could benefit from either individual or group counseling you will be asked to participate in an evaluation session.
Your first session or Individual Intake Assessment can take up to two hours or more. After the session a personalized healing plan is prepared to address your individual needs.
You must be prepared to discuss both your physical and mental health history. Without this information it will be very difficult or even impossible to prepare a successful course of action.
It is important to seek help as soon as you cannot cope on your own. If you are not sleeping, or eating, cannot concentrate, or function well. Please call me at (603) 494-4175 or e-mail at email@example.com to discuss your needs and schedule an appointment.
Note: An Individual Intake Assessment does not guarantee placement in either an individual or group program.
