Grief Counseling | Durham | Carolyn Stevenson, LCSW, MDiv


I have over ten years experience working with people facing major changes, whether due to transitions or loss.


I work effectively with people facing major changes, such as a child leaving for college, divorce, a move, new parenthood, marriage, or even the gradual changes that come with aging. Life transitions often leave people feeling disoriented, stuck, or overwhelmed.

Together, we'll create a safe space for self-reflection, tending to the fears, doubt, and uncertainty these changes may bring forth, and we'll nurture new self-knowledge, empowerment, and growth.


I work with people facing loss of many kinds and at many different stages of their grieving process. In a safe and supportive environment, you can feel comforted and understood, while gaining the tools to help you attend to the concerns, changes, and challenges that come with various forms of loss, including

  • the loss of a loved one
  • dealing with illness
  • the death of a pet
  • the end of a relationship
  • the stresses and challenges of being a caregiver
  • other difficult losses

In bereavement counseling, we will explore your sadness and pain as well as find hope and solace.
