Clinical Social Work Services

Grief Counseling

Living with grief can significantly impact an individual’s social, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Grief counseling is available for individuals, couples and families who have experienced loss due to death, chronic illness or other life experiences.

Our grief counseling services can help to:

  • Move beyond grief to acceptance
  • Improve physical symptoms related to grief (insomnia, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, stress)
  • Strengthen family and social relationships

Complicated grief may include:

  • Prolonged grief: Grief does not have a timeline for completion. Intense grief, years after a loss, may need additional counseling support.
  • Delayed grief: Grief that has not been processed at the time of loss will often reappear at a later time and require additional work.
  • Exaggerated grief: Occasionally someone overwhelmed by grief may respond with symptoms that impair functioning (i.e. depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, etc.).

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 701.780.6697.

Couples Therapy

Group Therapy

Group therapy has many advantages. Group members often develop a common bond and affirm one another’s feelings. Members no longer feel isolated; they feel supported by others who share similar experiences. Altru's Psychiatry Center offers several group therapy sessions.

Outreach Services

Altru's Psychiatry Center is able to reach more patients using telemedicine. Telemedicine consults improve patient outcomes and expand services throughout the region, as well as reduce travel time.
