Chicago Counselor at The Center for Grief Recovery Chicago Counselor at The Center for Grief Recovery





And all subsided in the hush
that followed, in the calm
of great wings folding
and shadowy forms lying down.

I rose and left that room,
the house of my grief
and my bondage, my book
never again to be opened.

To see as once I saw,
steadied by the darkness
in which I walked
and would make my way.

The Center for Grief Recovery’s (The Center) mission is to help empower and heal individuals who are dealing with emotionally intense experiences such as grief and loss, depression, anxiety, abuse, and trauma. We work both from traditional western psychotherapy and counseling models as well as non-conventional complimentary forms of mind-body healing.

Many of our clients cannot afford to pay full-fee and/or do not carry health insurance. In addition, we design and facilitate special didactic and experiential programs to help groups through critical and traumatic experiences such as dealing with death in the workplace. If you would like to help with the costs of these services or cover therapy services for those who cannot afford to pay, please make a tax-deductible donation.

If you wish to discuss a donation, or arrange for other types of support [or partnership] please contact griefrecovery@griefcounselor.org.
