We Can Help You Heal from Grief and Trauma

The Center for Grief and Trauma Therapy started in 2019 because our founder, Dr. Christina Zampitella, realized there was a need for specialist therapy services for the bereaved. She has experienced grief and trauma first-hand in her life and knows exactly how hard it is to rebuild your life after losing someone. She also knows what it’s like to feel unspeakable loss.

She’s also proof that healing creates hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel when you are ready to find it. Our team is here to listen to your story and help you take the first steps to recovery. We’ll teach you strategies to manage your symptoms and give you the tools you need to move forward.

Loss Can Occur in Lots of Different Ways

Loss is associated with both grief and trauma, and it comes in many shapes and sizes. Here are some of the most common issues patients speak to us about, but it’s not a complete list. Whatever you’re going through, you don’t have to walk alone.

  • Death of a loved one or pet
  • End of a relationship
  • Loss of a valued job
  • Diagnosis of disease
  • Involved in an accident
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Missed opportunities
  • And much more
