LCSW

Biography

Estelle Giles-Monroe’s general practice focus is on individuals, couples, teens, and families. She specializes in grief and loss and her focus has expanded to include work with people with terminal illnesses. Estelle has also experienced the loss of a special canine friend, and knows first-hand what group members struggle with. The pain is real and although it evolves over time it doesn’t go away. Estelle encourages individuals working though the grief process to honor and experience the pain, but not allow it to distort them. When someone has loved a pet, that person has the capacity to love a pet again.
