Grief counseling can help you cope with the trauma of loss. A loss can disrupt you at the emotional, physical, spiritual, or cognitive level. Grief may be caused by a loved one's death or more generally any life-altering loss, including a significant illness, divorce, job loss, or financial crisis. Counseling provides the support you need to regain hope and find joy in living once more.
Chronic Disease & Grief Counseling
If you or a loved one is experiencing a chronic disease, like cancer, ALS, or dementia, you are probably facing grief and a sense of loss. Scott has years of personal experience counseling individuals and groups coping with long-term illness. He experienced the loss of his first wife to ALS and bounced back to help others cope with grief. Scott works with individuals, couples, and families to transform their experiences, to find hope.
"I have found Scott to be a man of integrity, patience and understanding. He has developed skills over the years to deal with those in pain, in grief, and with mental health difficulties. He has a wonderful sense of humor which carries him though trying situations." - Nancy A. Falcon, M.S., Jeffco Family Support Network
"Scott is acutely sensitive to the emotional needs of both the patient and the caregivers living with either chronic or terminal illnesses. He knows what is needed physically and financially for both patient and family members. His work with the ALS Association has given him a broader, more in-depth comprehension of the support needed for all involved in such illnesses. He is a gifted communicator and has a gentle, caring heart." - Rev. Janet M. Buntrock, MA, LPC, FT
