Compassionate Grief Counseling in Pittsburgh



Your Journey Towards Healing Begins Here

Grief is not a sign of weakness, but a testament to the depth of your love and memories. Be gentle with yourself as you heal.

Understanding Your Grief:

Personalized Approaches for Diverse Needs

You are unique and your story is unique. Everyone grieves differently. Often as counselors, we are asked, “Is this normal?” I often respond that it’s not normal to be normal so let’s focus on just being YOU! Who you are is okay and what you are experiencing is okay given the circumstances.

At WPA Counseling your counselor will get to know you for who you are and spend time understanding your individualized experience and the specific needs that come from that experience. We will help you make sense of your experience and develop meaning that helps you become whole after your loss.

Often times in the western world we get hung up on our symptoms and simply trying to elevate or minimize their impact on our lives.

It’s time to get to the root and get to a place of healing and holistic wellness.

Your Healing and Wellness Journey

Long-Term Support and Guidance

Start your transformational path with WPA Counseling. The grief counseling process can take time. Clients often make significant progress and get to a point where they can go it on their own. We are always happy when we work our way out of a job! However, we know that things can take a turn at any given time and we are here for you. Often clients will take time away from counseling only to several months later have something trigger an unresolved issue and return for a “check-up” or even more ongoing counseling. Once you start with WPA Counseling we are here for you no matter what life brings your way.

Even when counsleing is no longer needed for grief, you may find yourself needing support with other issues like relationship stress, another loss, work issues, anxiety, etc. Counseling doesn’t have to be a way of life forever but it can be part of life as you strive to live a life of peace and optimal wellness!

Our Counseling Blueprint

Take off the Mask

The first step in the process is to “take off the mask” and be genuine and honest with yourself and your counselor.  This is done through a process of building rapport and trust in the counseling relationship. You were wounded in relationship and it is important to heal in relationship…a safe, accepting and therapeutic relationship with your counselor.

Heal the Wounds

Once rapport and trust are established and the mask is off, your counselor will help you explore what has hurt you.  Our wounds (emotional, spiritual, relational and sometimes physical) are the root cause of our suffering and need to be identified and healed.

Remove the Toxins

Once you have done some healing work on the things that hurt you, your counselor will help you identify the toxins left behind. These are the lies you believed, consciously or subconsiously at the time of the wounding that can stick with you long after the wound is healed.

Replace with Truth

Once the toxic beliefs are removed, there is room for the truth. Your counselor will help you identify the truths about yourself, others, and the world that were stolen from you when you were hurt. To often the counseling process stops with the “heal the wounds” step. At WPA Counseling, we are interested in you believing and living your truth.
