A Safe Environment
Our staff of professional counselors has a wide range of experience in grief counseling. All hold professional licenses and have degrees covering social work, counseling, and divinity. Counseling for adults, children and teens is available throughout the Charlotte area and the eight-county region including Lincoln and Union counties.
Our grief counselors create a safe environment for individuals who are adjusting to a significant loss. If you have survived the loss of a loved one, we can help you discover, or rediscover, inner resources that will promote healing and help you define a meaningful future.
Talking one-on-one with a grief counselor helps to make sense of the experiences that a grieving person encounters. The way in which a person grieves is unique to that person. Having a grief counselor to help you work through your emotions and thoughts about your loved one, share your memories, and discuss adjustments to life is healthy; it helps you recognize that what you are going through is normal.
We employ a beneficial perspective that is based on the following principles:
- Pain and loss are a normal part of life and grieving is a healthy way of taking care of ourselves.
- Grieving persons have the right and responsibility to grieve in their own way, to interpret their loss, to make choices that are right for them, and to determine the quality and direction for their lives.
- Everyone is respected and encouraged to honor their diverse values and traditions.
