This single-case study is designed to help counselors conceptualize grief and loss issues experienced by a person with aphasia and improve the effectiveness in counseling individuals with this disability. Given the unique communication needs of this population, creative approaches to counseling are presented. Five themes were identified through the coding of interview transcripts: questioning identity, questioning existence, questioning normality, questioning feelings, and adapting to a new reality. In addition, the overarching theme of disenfranchised grief emerged from the data.
