Debbra Bronstad, LMFT provides Grief Counseling Troy Michigan for recent loss or long ago losses.
Your grief may be due to death, divorce, a traumatic loss, losing a job, life transitions, empty nest or a host of other life changes that result in feelings of grief.
Grief can be disorienting and confusing, but you don't have to get stuck there. I help my clients identify the areas that intensify their pain, usually specific regrets, memories, trauma or guilt, etc. As we process these experiences, my clients find that they are able to feel more peace and calm after loss.
"To process" mean that we will talk about your experiences, making a
space for you to express your feelings and your thoughts associated with
them, in a non-judgmental atmosphere so that you can get to the heart
of anything that is holding you back from recovery after loss.
In this process
we welcome feelings of anger, guilt, grief or regret, feelings that may
otherwise be difficult to express. Many times when we try to talk to a
friend or family member about these feelings, we're told in one message
or another that we "shouldn't feel that way or that we aren't guilty,
etc. The problem is that we cannot be talked out of our feelings.
Feelings need to be expressed in a safe and open environment for you to
