Grieving is a gift from God to us to manage our loss. It is normal, and it is progressive, and its character changes with time. But sometimes the grieving process stalls, and we do not progress, we can get stuck. We will use Narrative/story therapy, work on forgiveness, the tangled web model, and other tools to begin to unravel the roadblock.

Grief is a natural process, resulting from love. However, if grief becomes overwhelming, or it becomes "stuck," having someone to assist can be helpful. My approach to "walk beside" the grieving person, so that the experience is not overwhelming, nor is it repressed. A healthy grief process should move one eventually toward a place of gratitude, forgiveness, and peace.
