For each of us, life holds a tantalizing blend of joy and grief; triumph and lossHowever at some time, someone you know must face the tragedy of a personal loss.


It may be the trauma of marital separation, grief over the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or the stress associated with the daily tasks of living. Any of these circumstances has the potential to tax our strongest resources and cause us to question our deepest thoughts.


Sadly, many people try to deal with these difficult times all by themselves. They feel they have no other alternative, no one to whom they can turn. They struggle with the burden alone and at times the emotional weight can be overwhelming. We need not be alone.


When we share our joys we increase them; when we share our sorrows we diminish them. Out of grief can come growth, and when we deal with it, there is much we can learn.


The Winokuer Center for Counseling and Healing is an  organization that offers education, counseling and support services to help individuals, couples and families deal effectively with life's issues, and in doing so, realize a new richness and fullness to living.

Grief and Bereavement Counseling

The death of a loved one or a traumatic loss can be one of the most difficult events of an individual, couple or family might experience. Understanding that the grief process is normal, and that no one needs to grieve alone, is one of the most important messages a person can learn. As a Fellow in Thanatology, Dr. Winokuer has helped thousands of people work through their grief and begin new lives without their loved ones.

Individual Counseling

The Winokuer Center works with individuals (adults and adolescents) in one-to-one counseling relationships in order to help them improve the quality of their lives and enhance their personal growth. We help clarify situations, explore options, and create plans to empower people to take charge of their lives.


The following are some of the issues that we address:

  • Depression and Anxiety

  • Grief and Bereavement

  • Relationships

  • Separation and Divorce

  • Stress and Other Life Issues

Couples Counseling

Often times couples struggle with the issues that are a normal part of all relationships. The issues may range from poor communications skills to sexual dysfunction. We can help couples examine these issues and learn the skills necessary to enhance the quality of their relationship.
