When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure

Who is grief therapy for?

Grief comes in many shapes and forms and for many reasons. Each of us handles grief in different ways depending on our situation and loss.

While most people think of grief therapy for the loss of a loved one, there are many other reasons to look for grief counseling and coaching. If you’re experiencing any of the following you may benefit from grief counseling:

  • Loss of a loved one
  • Divorce
  • Break up
  • A loved one moving away
  • Pet loss or death
  • Being fired or losing a job
  • And so much more

And for any of those reasons above, grief counseling can help you find solace and comfort!

The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living

What is grief therapy?

Chrissy lawler therapist in las vegas

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 13 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 12 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.

I’m a big believer that therapist fit is really important. Too many people give up on counseling in general because they had a poor fit with a therapist and decided counseling didn’t work. Counseling DOES work, but the therapist/client match-up is important. You want to work with someone whose personality you can jive with, and you need to believe that your therapist can actually help you. So, I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and what sets me apart, and you can decide if I sound like the right fit for you:

I graduated from Brigham Young University, the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I’m not saying this to brag, only to confidently report that my education was top notch. We were constantly taught how important it is to be a fantastic therapist, because unfortunately, unskilled therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. I was also taught that having a good foundational background is important, but what I do after graduation to hone my skills is what will set me apart. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. I’m a critical consumer of information and I make sure that everything I do is grounded in theory.

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.
