In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.
