We offer a comprehensive approach to treating grief that addresses the emotional, mental, and physical aspects of healing. Our grief treatment programs may include:

  • Psychotherapy: Individual and group therapy sessions provide a safe space for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings surrounding their loss while learning coping strategies and processing emotions in a healthy way. 
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT techniques help individuals regulate emotions, develop distress tolerance skills, improve interpersonal relationships, and enhance mindfulness practices.
  • Brain Mapping: Brain mapping helps identify areas of brain activity related to grief responses and can guide personalized treatment plans tailored to each client’s unique needs.
  • Family Therapy: Involving loved ones in the therapeutic process can facilitate communication, rebuild connections disrupted by grief, and create understanding between family members about each other’s experiences with loss.
