Felicia Lepetri, LCSW
I have worked in the field of grief and loss for over 12 years and understand how disruptive change and loss can be to individuals, families and partnerships. Grief can often feel isolating, overwhelming, and painful, which is why seeking out support can be beneficial to you or someone you know that is struggling with loss.
Life transitions and change often bring up feelings of uncertainty and worry. Although, these transitions are often expected or even decided by us, it can cause an overwhelming sense of doubt and sometimes feelings of grief. My goal in supporting you through these changes and losses begins with understanding your unique experience with grief, making meaning of your losses and exploring ways to help you feel connected and seen.
Grief and life transitions are often manifested in different ways, and I believe therapy is a collaborative experience which involves trust and compassion. My goal is to create a safe and comforting environment for your healing. So, if you have recently experienced change or loss, anticipating loss, or have a history of loss, I invite you to reach out for a consult.
When we think of loss, we think of the loss through death of people we love. But loss is a far more encompassing theme in our life. For we lose not only through death, but also by leaving and being left, by changing and letting go and moving on.” – Judith Viorst
Grief and Loss
Grief and loss can feel extremely overwhelming and difficult to talk about. I provide a space to validate and process your experience and can provide bereavement education. Grief counseling ranges from the death of a person, anticipatory grief, the loss of identity or future planning.
Cancer and Chronic Health
Psychosocial support is fundamental to the needs of cancer patients and those living with a chronic or terminal health condition. I provide assistance with managing the challenges that come up living with a chronic medical condition and even following the end of treatment. I also have experience with ALS and dementia related needs.
Life transitions and change often bring up anxiety, depression and uncertainty. Together we can explore healthy and productive ways to navigate these changes and help you feel more grounded and secure. Whether you’re becoming a new mother, transitioning into parenthood, or coming in and out a relationship, sometimes we need support to help guide us through new our new identities and roles.
