Grief and Bereavement Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Knoxville

If it is unexpected, the shock of life changing so dramatically in an instant can be totally overwhelming.  It can take weeks, months, even years, to fully recover.  Even if the loss of a loved one is at the end of a long illness, the grief can be too much to bear.  A grieving process is normal after any loss, but if it is prolonged or severe, an experienced grief counselor may be needed.

In this life, we will all experience death.  Even though it is an absolute guarantee, we are almost never fully prepared when it happens to someone we love.  The loss of a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend, a sibling, even a pet, is one of the major stressors in life.  There are many signs that grief is becoming overwhelming.  Being unable to go about your daily activities, becoming reclusive from friends and family, replaying the events surrounding the death obsessively; all of these things are signs that the grieving process has stalled.  It is also common for unhealthy behaviors to begin as a result of grief.  Those that struggled with addictions in the past may be likely to relapse.  Self-medicating with unhealthy substances is also common to try and find relief from the pain and sadness.

You don’t have to do it alone.

Whether you are trying to get help for a loved one that is dealing with a loss, or if you need help for yourself, you have come to the right place.  When you conducted the search that brought you to this page, you were presented with many choices for counseling.  When you choose Thriveworks, you can rest assured that you have placed your trust in experienced professionals.  We have licensed grief counselors and therapists that are trained and experienced in dealing with a wide variety of situations.  We are ready to put our expertise to work for you.

Cannot Recommend Enough

Going to Thriveworks for the past year and a half has been the most rewarding counseling experience I’ve had...Read more

. Seeing Lindsey has had the single biggest impact on my emotional and mental health, especially in healing from past childhood abuse and trauma, and ongoing PTSD. Out of multiple counselors in two states, Lindsey Chandler is by far the one with whom I’ve felt the most accepted, supported, and encouraged by. I am grateful for the Thriveworks space, as it is not at all clinical nor intimidating, but entirely warn and welcoming. It is nearly a scent-free environment, which is vital for the comfort of any highly sensitive persons. I choose to drive an hour from home each visit specifically to stay loyal to a place where I finally feel safe and valued—where in the past commuting five minutes from home to work with a therapist felt like a chore and an ordeal—and I will continue to do so as I work further toward a healthier me.
