Counseling Advice?

This should be a happy time of the year, but unfortunately tragedy can strike at any time. A reader emailed to us recently:

"A friend of the family recently lost his mother, and is having a had time dealing with the pain.  Although he has lots of support from family and friends, understandably the pain is still affecting him on a day to day basis.  It might be helpful for him to talk with a professional who can help him work through his grieving, and I was hoping the UrbanMamas community would be able to share some suggestions on counselors or therapists for him to contact."

Any suggestions?

Dr. Jay Johnson at Western Psychological on BH Highway near Jesuit has been a huge blessing to us and members of our extended family. The reception staff could use some improvement recently, but Dr. Jay is a wonderful psychologist. westernpsych.com/directory/practitioner_detail.php?id=34

I am a therapist in private practice in NE Portland at 21st and Broadway. I believe strongly that grieving is work that is greatly helped with additional support above and beyond the love that friends and family offer. My website is: www.LionTreeCounseling.com and my contact number is 503-985-6344. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, and am also able to help with referrals if I am not the right fit.
Best,
Meg Jeske, M.A.

Please consider Dougy Center. My husband passed away this past summer (July 2010) and I was left with not only my own grief but questions about how to help our two children (12 and 2). The dougy center has been a wonderful, healing place for all of us. Best to you.
