Our services are offered to clients with different backgrounds, needs, and strengths. We use a collaborative approach to determine goals and progression of care. In a respectful and confidential environment, we draw upon evidence-based treatment modalities to facilitate your growth.

Treatment Approaches for Grief include:

  • Theories: Person-Centered Therapy, Reality Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Betty Neuman's Nursing Theory, Tuckman's Theory of Group Development 
  • Grief Models: Tonkin's Model of Grief, The Four Task of Grieving, Continuing Bonds Theory, The Six Rs of Mourning, The Dural Process Model, The Reconstruction of Meaning

Our primary function is to help you with emotional growth and symptom reduction. We also help you recognize destructive patterns that may be keeping you from healing. We understand that flexibility and creativity are sometimes necessary during the interactive therapy process. We also understand that your symptoms may appear to be getting worse at first, as unresolved feelings may surface before healing can take place.

To help ensure safe care, we may, with your permission, share your pertinent information with your primary-care provider or other professionals. Call us today to set up a 20-minute consultation by phone or video conference to see if working together will be a good fit for your growth.

If at any time, it is determined that you cannot benefit from working with us, we can assist you in finding someone who can help.

To schedule an appointment with Marcella Atwater, please call: 919-416-3737.

 Individual Therapy

Group therapy is not for everyone. If you desire privacy and are having normal signs of grief such as crying, lack of energy, and changes in appetite, you may benefit from one-on-one therapy. With normal grief, signs and symptoms decrease over time, normally within months. 

 If your grief gets worse over time, your life becomes meaningless, and you are unable to function, I recommend you seek help without hesitation.    

If you have current thoughts of suicide, please call 911 for assistance. You may also seek assistance at the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).
