My name is Thera Storm. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), military spouse, published author, group facilitator, speaker and mom. I currently work full-time providing therapy for active duty Sailors and Navy families at Naval Base San Diego.
Clarity Corp. is my private practice located in Pacific Beach where I provide The Grief Recovery Method part-time online (by appointment only).
I am passionate about helping people recover, heal, and move-on from loss and the grief that comes with it.
Years ago, I realized that what most people have been told about grief is just not true…
“Everything happens for a reason”, “They’re in a better place now”, “I’m sorry for your loss”, “Life goes on”, “Keep on keeping on”, “I’ll give you space, but let me know if you need anything”… These sayings, kind as they may be at heart, just don’t cut it. And no one should feel like that’s all they need to actually heal and move on from loss.
The reality is, loss isn’t as easy as that. It’s not something you slap a bandaid on and just “keep on marching.” Whatever it is you’re dealing with, your emotional pain deserves more than a bandaid.
Maybe you’ve lost a loved one. Maybe you’ve lost a friend. Maybe you’re going through a hard break-up or divorce. Maybe you’ve lost your job or career, are experiencing infertility or miscarriage, lost your pet, lost your identity, lost your wealth; maybe you’ve just graduated, retired, moved homes or changed careers… it’s all a kind of “loss” and all of it deserves more than a bandaid.
You deserve a home for real healing, resources, and a proven process to get you from where you’re at to where you deserve to be.
It’s ok to feel the way you feel about your loss, whatever that may be. Maybe it’s sadness, maybe it’s disconnection, depression or outright anger. Many of my clients even experience anxiety, loss of concentration & focus, depleting emotions and failing relationships. However you’re feeling, my job is not just to “hear you out” and speak the same shallow platitudes that society and traditional therapy offers.
My mission is to bring you real healing, real clarity, and real tools and techniques you can take with you no matter where you’re at in life.
This website is dedicated to providing tools, resources and options for individual counseling. If you’re not ready to complete the one-on-one online Grief Recovery Program with me, perhaps you’d like to sign up for the 7-day email series, buy a recommended book, download a free game for your family to “play” as you process a loss together, or simply stay connected through social media.
If you need assistance navigating the best resources for your specific concerns, please call or email and I will personally help you assess the best way to move forward.
