Grief Counseling

Grief does not occur just in individuals who have lost a loved one, but can surface as a result of experiencing any kind of traumatic event.  Grief is a human's natural response to some kind of trauma or loss, is a natural part of life, and a deep and intense sense of sorrow is the primary element.  In can be in response to the loss of a loved one, the ending of a relationship, a reaction to illness, and moving away from friends or family.

After an event that would cause grief, there is typically initially a period of shock and you might feel numb through this process.  You might also have feelings of weakness and confusion, trouble eating and difficulty sleeping.  You might be feeling regret over what could have been or happened, and anger arising at people or events that are unrelated to the trauma itself.  Within the reaction to a traumatic event or loss, there are seven stages of grief that one processes through: shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger and bargaining, feelings of depression, the upward turn, reconstruction and working through, and acceptance and hope.

With grief therapy and counseling, together we will work through the healing process and transform your feelings of emptiness into feelings of hope and optimism.  I will support you through your journey and can provide a supportive and caring environment for you.
