Helping Grieving Kids and Teens
Sara Egan, LSW
Licensed Social Worker and Child and Adolescent Grief Therapist
Are you watching your child or teen struggle with their grief and feeling unprepared on how to help them? Is your grieving child or teen acting out in school, avoiding their friends, or seemingly perfect by becoming an overachiever? These are common signs that kids and teens are struggling with their grief. If you’re wanting to help them feel happy, secure, and hopeful for their future then...
You’re in the right place!
I’m Sara and I understand how difficult it is to worry about your child or teen who is grieving. I specialize in helping children and teenagers just like yours: those who have experienced loss and have it within themselves to find joy and peace again but just need the support to get there.
I help grieving children and teens find confidence, happiness, and meaning by equipping them with the tools they need to understand how to overcome their own unique grief struggles and find their joy again.
Many adults do not understand how children and adolescent grief is different from adult grief. This leads many children and teenagers to feel anxious, depressed, and isolated, and parents feeling unsure about how to best help them. I know that your child’s circumstances are unique, so every step we take is tailored to your child and your family.
First, we will explore your child’s grief and how it’s impacting their life. Then, we will work on developing strategies and coping mechanisms that will help them the most. Through our work together, they’ll gain the skills and confidence needed to readjust and reach developmental milestones.
I am dedicated to helping children and adolescents live their best life even after a loss.
My training in grief means I have the expertise grieving children and teens need and deserve when dealing with the complex emotions that come with a loss. But at the end of the day, you want to know that you’re working with someone who “gets” it. I get it because I experienced a significant loss as a child and have dedicated my career to helping children and adolescents, not only survive a loss, but live a meaningful life filled with their unique strengths and values. So when we work together, you won’t just get a trained therapist. You’ll get someone who truly understands what your family is going through.
