Our Purpose

The Center for Grief and Trauma Therapy was started to provide specialist therapy services for those experiencing grief, trauma, loss, and bereavement. While our specialty is in helping the bereaved, our therapy team has extensive experience in treating a broad range of mental health issues. 

Our mission is to help members of our community in Delaware and beyond receive the tools and support they need to heal, rebuild, and thrive in every area of their lives. 

Our Story 

Dr. Christina Zampitella founded the Center for Grief and Trauma Therapy in 2019 to provide specialized counseling 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. Her story is 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.
