Charlottesville, VA Grief Counseling – Therapy, Sadness, Bereavement

Losing a friend, family member, or loved one is one of the most difficult events you can possibly experience. Regardless of whether the loss is expected or unforeseen, more often than not it brings with it intense emotions of grief and pain. Although at times, people can recover from grief and loss on their own; assistance is often required to process these feelings and to enable a person to function effectively again in their everyday life. The recovery from pain, grief, loss, and their associated intense emotions can be catalyzed through grief counseling or grief therapy. This is why Thriveworks Grief Counseling Charlottesville is here – to help you process your grief and emerge a better person for it. It may sound like an impossible feat, but you’re capable of more than you think.

Grief counseling is not only an effective tool for overcoming the death of a loved one, but is also beneficial for those whose intense feelings of pain and loss are brought on by different events. Divorce or separation, a missing person, and even losing a pet can trigger strong feelings of grief. Grieving is part of life, and as such, it is natural to experience these feelings of loss. There’s no reason to be ashamed or embarrassed for seeking help through this natural part of life.

Your emotions and feelings are real, regardless of their origin

People handle their grief, pain, and loss in a wide variety of ways. Some individuals openly experience the full spectrum of feelings – weeping, mourning, or actively seeking help from friends and family. Yet there are others who tend to deny their feelings and close in on themselves, appearing to be unaffected to those looking on from the outside. While many ways of processing these emotions exist, few are truly effective by themselves at aiding in grief recovery. Support from a highly trained and caring professional counselor, therapist, or psychologist, like those on our team at Thriveworks Charlottesville, VA Grief Counseling, is often the key to real and lasting reprieve.

Grief can quickly become too much to handle alone. Here are a few warning signs:

  • Dwelling on or talking often about death
  • Intense anxiety or panic attacks
  • Loss of interest or desire
  • Intense bitterness or resentment
  • Deep feelings of sadness or depression
  • Changes in your appetite or sleep patterns

If you are experiencing any of these indicators, please do not face them alone. Thriveworks counselors are here to help. Call us today at (434) 812-4009.

Thriveworks Counseling Charlottesville

Safe environment where clients matter

★★★★★
Reaching out to Thriveworks was a great decision. The service is excellent and the representative matched me with the best counselor for my needs. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first, but I was pleasantly surprised when I met Anita Dean. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely cares about others. I have observed that she doesn't create cookie cutter plans. Instead, she creates a plan specific to the needs of her her clients. My husband and I lost our sweet family pet of over 15 1/2 years and it also caused the loss of a child to resurface. Anita, has handled my situation with care and assisted me as I walked through the grief process. I am so grateful.

Useless

★☆☆☆☆
Receptionist couldn't have been less helpful -- after waiting on hold 20 minutes, I told her I wanted to make an appointment to get assessed for some psychological issues, and she told me, simply, "We don't have anyone who can do that." That was it, no other comment. We just sat there in silence. She was unable to think, work, or put in any effort to help me try to find what I was looking for, or offer any kind of explanation of what she meant. I guess she was busy looking at memes on her phone or something. Or maybe ThriveWorks literally does not assess people for their psychological issues before counseling them? SOOOOO confused and frustrated.

No help available

★☆☆☆☆
Does not have the ability to meet advertised capability. Needed help with my daughter and made the first difficult call to be told no appointment available till after middle of May. One therapist only no other options. My daughter and I were excited when looking at the website and shocked on the outcome. However the phone specialist was very pleasant and he handled the call with the utmost respect.

We've been seeing Anita Dean weekly for over 6 months now and have felt so rewarded by our time together. We have nothing but totally positive things to say about her approach, demeanor and the positive change that she has helped us achieve. We feel comforted and supported by Anita's presence and we would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking compassionate counsel. She's top notch - bright, funny, relatable and most importantly, we always leave feeling renewed!
