A sudden and tragic loss shatters our sense of order and thrusts us into a world forever changed. Survivors of sudden loss experience a greater sense of vulnerability and heightened anxiety. The safe world we once knew no longer exists.
Trying to make sense of and to understand a sudden loss can be overwhelming. When someone you love dies suddenly, unexpectedly or violently, the event of death can leave you feeling alone, bewildered and overcome with floods of grief. There was no time to say good-bye. There was no last time to say, “I will always love you.”
You may be searching for a therapist to help you develop a greater ability to understand and control your emotions, or you may simply want to find peace of mind.
If you want help, help is available.
My name is Kristene Elmore. I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology and I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I have been active in grief counseling --- helping people integrate loss into their lives and move toward positive personal transformation --- for over fifteen years.
I provide grief therapy for couples, individuals, families and workplaces. I have worked with a variety of clients to help them move beyond their grief, and unlock their potential to design a new life. I often witness clients’ positive growth and newly acquired abilities to navigate:
Heightened anxiety following the sudden death
Strained relationships with family members or co-workers
Worry, or trouble with, caring for yourselfUneasy interactions with colleagues
Self-sabotaging behavior patterns that interfere with work and life
If you feel your current existence is one of sadness, day after day, call me on or contact me by email to set an appointment.
I provide a respectful, supportive, and confidential environment in which you can safely disclose your inner thoughts and feelings.
I can help you effectively process your grief.
