Grief Recovery

I specialize in individual, partner and group sessions designed to assist in healing after a loss, whether experienced through death, divorce, loss of job, pet, one’s faith, or any one of over 40 other potential losses.

Grief can be defined as “the normal and natural response to loss.” My goal is quite simply to provide a supportive environment that will enable the natural healing process to take place and to assist in identifying roadblocks to fully experiencing and expressing the feelings associated with this normal and natural response.

The core of grief recovery is being able to experience our true feelings around the loss in a safe, nonjudgmental, supportive environment and complete what is unfinished in our relationships through a well-defined program – with a beginning and an end.

Individual sessions are $60 per session and partner sessions are $40 per session. There will be 6 two-hour sessions total.

Group sessions are a $20 per two-hour group sessions.  There will be a total of 10 sessions.

Payment of half of the total fee for the program is required at the start of the sessions.  *There is an additional $12 charge for materials.

 

Grief Recovery® Outreach Program

 One of the least acknowledged and least addressed concerns in our society is

 GRIEF

the normal and natural reaction to  loss.

 Whether your loss is from:
• Death of a loved one • Divorce or end of a relationship
• Loss of career • Loss of a substance dependency • Loss of trust
• Loss of dreams • Loss of security • Loss of health 

Grief will continue to affect our lives and the lives of those around us adversely when we are forced to accept the many MYTHS ABOUT GRIEF:

Time heals all wounds
Replace the loss
Grieve alone
Be strong for others
Bury your feelings

The Outreach program will guide those who wish to resolve their loss issues and move beyond their grief to a richer quality of life.  As a result of participating in this program your life may become more enriched, more alive and more fulfilled than ever before. This 10-week program will be conducted by

Chris Himmel, Certified Grief Recovery® Specialist.

Helping Children Deal With Loss

 Educational Study Group

For  Adults to Help Children Deal with Death, Divorce, Pet  Loss, Moving, and Other Losses

 There are many Myths about dealing with sad emotions that confuse children:

Time heals all  wounds… Replace the loss… Cry alone…Be strong for others…Bury your feelings…Don’t feel bad, have a cookie, you’ll feel better…

 In this program you will learn how to replace these myths with practical guidance for your children.

 In the Meantime:

 –  Listen with your heart, not your head.  Allow all emotions to be expressed, without judgment, criticism, or analysis.
–   Recognize that grief is emotional, not  intellectual. Avoid the trap of asking your child what is wrong, for he or she will automatically say, “Nothing.”
–    Adults – Go first.  Telling the truth about your own grief will  make your child feel safe in opening up about his or her own feelings.
–   Remember that each of your children is unique and each has a unique relationship to the loss event.
–   Be patient.  Don’t force your child to talk.
–   Never Say “Don’t feel sad” or “Don’t feel  scared.” Sadness and fear, the two most common feelings attached to loss  of any kind, are essential to being human.
