You've lost someone, and it's affecting everything. The death of a loved one causes a part of us to just stop (even if the rest of us keeps going). Grief counseling is about finding and sitting with the stopped self and hearing its desires, its memories, and its hurts. With time and attention, we uncover our natural motivation to start again.
I am licensed counselor working with individuals, couples, and families navigating loss or inner conflict, whether in oneself, or in relationships with others.
Please reach out for an initial conversation - we can explore if there's a good fit, or I can assist with a referral to another therapist who might be better suited for you.
Call or Stephen Porter now for a free 15 minute consultation - (615) 235-5330

Our sessions will initially be open and unstructured as we get to know each other. We'll start by unpacking what brought you into therapy and the general story of your life right now. As time goes on, we may use Jungian psychology as a way to welcome and understand input from your unconscious mind, or we might use Emotionally Focused Therapy to cultivate a sense of safety in your relationship.
