Loss occurs in everyone, sometimes it is expected, sometimes not. It can be helpful to have someone to help put things in perspective and to find a "New" normal functioning. Grief and Cognitive -Behavioral therapies, with the guidance of a therapist, can help individuals make adjustments in living and thinking about the loss, and move on with life using healthy coping skills.

Everyone encounters grief and loss in their lives. Having someone to talk to who understands your pain and can give you resources can be helpful. There is a difference between healthy grief and unhealthy grief. If you are experiencing grief for more than 6 months which is causing you impairment in your eating, sleeping, concentration, your work, etc. you may need some professional help, like talk therapy and medication temporarily. I use an empathetic and understanding approach through person centered, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused therapy.
