Grief and Loss Therapy
"Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim." - Vicki Harrison
Grief and Loss
Are you feeling profound sadness after the death of a loved one? Experiencing excessive guilt about something left unsaid or undone? Maybe you’re gripped with fear? Caught in a cycle of anxiety, helplessness, or panic? Or having trouble resuming a normal life with grief and pain as your constant companions? Maybe you’d like professional support through a period of mourning?
Grief is a natural human response to loss, but that doesn’t mean bereavement of a loved one isn’t an intense and at times desolate experience. While painful experiences are normal during this time, your emotions may feel trapped on a non-stop rollercoaster, with downs and deeper downs interspersed with periods of brief respite.
Loss is a very personal journey, with some finding it more difficult than others. While grieving for the same person can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it’s also common for the grieving to struggle with anger, conflict, a lack of understanding, or an inability to fully share your feelings with others. Grief and loss counseling offers a non judgmental, safe space for you to work through any issues you are unable to with others. It can provide you a much-needed safe space to work through your struggles with a caring, nonjudgmental professional.
We focus on helping people feel better and learn to cope with their grieving experience. We can help you learn to express and come to terms with the broad range of emotions involved in the grieving process, from those that you may expect — sadness, loneliness, exhaustion – to those that come as a surprise, such as relief, anger, and a sense of confusion. We offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to best support you and work with you as an equal collaborator to empower and engage your healing.
So if these describe you…
You’re struggling to come to terms with a loss
You feel overwhelmed with grief, fear, despair, or worry
Your faith seems shattered and you feel abandoned at your time of greatest need
You feel alone as everyone else seems to have moved on without you
You want to live a happier, more connected life
You’d like professional support to better cope through the grieving process
…Then grief and loss counseling may offer the support, guidance, and expert care you need.
