When you have suffered a significant loss, it can be difficult to talk with the people who love you most because it can increase the distress of everyone involved. But talking is a way humans find positive meaning in even the most catastrophic events. A grief therapist can be a caring witness to all the complicated thoughts and feelings you have after a loss. Talking your way through the stages of grief with a therapist helps you move through the grief instead of suppressing it, release all the pain, and gradually to heal.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.
