Donna’s Story: Life-Changing Grief Counseling

As a lay minister in the Dayton area, Donna helps people deal with problems every day. But when she needed help, she turned to EmployeeCare, which was provided through her husband’s employer.

“I was suffering from complicated grief related to my mother’s cancer and death,” Donna says. She felt uncomfortable and even reluctant at first, but everyone at EmployeeCare made her feel safe and welcome. “My counselor was professional and respectful,” says Donna. “He was gentle and accepting, too, but he also challenged me when I needed it.”

Donna soon realized she was also dealing with some unresolved issues from an earlier time in her life. Her EmployeeCare counselor let Donna come to her own awareness and, as the driver of her therapy, she felt in control.

Donna always left her counseling sessions feeling better and stronger. “The experience was very healing and helped me get my laughter back,” she says. “I can’t say enough for the program. I would encourage anyone to use EmployeeCare counseling services. At worst, it is an improvement; at best, it can be life-changing.”
