"There are three needs of the griever:  To find the words for the loss, to say the words aloud, and to know that the words have been heard."

   -Victoria Alexander

"The mourner is, perforce, a person with a story.  The pity is, how very rarely it gets told."  

-Christian McEwen

"Anything that is human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.  When we can talk about our feelings they become less overwhelming, less upsetting and less scary.  The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone."   - Fred Rogers 

          The Grief Resource Center is a private practice that provides resources for children, adolescents and adults in need of guidance in dealing with a personal loss.  Unfortunately in our society, the grieving process is seldom acknowledged and frequently misunderstood, at times even dismissed.  The impact of the death or life-threatening illness of a loved one can be catastrophic yet there is little tolerance for allowing grievers the adequate time to fully express and experience the grieving process.  Far too often there is impatience and an unwillingness to allow for individualized timetables for grief and mourning.  Grief work takes an extensive amount of time, energy and attention.  Pursuing grief counseling can offer the prospect of gaining accurate information about the grief journey while discovering tools to expedite the healing process.
