You grief has taken you over. At times you feel like you’re going crazy or losing your mind. You can eat at all, or maybe you can’t stop eating. You forget things and it’s hard to concentrate. The sadness is overwhelming.
Loss is a very personal journey, with some finding it more difficult than others. While grieving can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it’s also common for people grieving to struggle with anger, conflict, a lack of understanding, or an inability to fully share your feelings with others. You’re probably wondering what to expect from grief counseling. Grief and bereavement counseling offers a non judgmental, safe space for you to work through any issues you are unable to with others. Grief and bereavement counseling 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.
In our grief and bereavement counseling we work with you toward lessening the pain so you can function well in your post-loss life. We listen with empathy, discuss ways to deal with unhelpful and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and teach you techniques to manage distress and enable you to move forward. We help you create continuing bonds with your loved ones, because your mom is still your mom even after she isn’t with you anymore.
