Although we all know that loss is part of life, we experience grief as a natural reaction to the changes that loss creates in our particular life. The grieving process, when approached with an experienced, compassionate counselor, can be dealt with more easily and seen as a beautiful part of living and growing and appreciating what and who we have lost, rather than focusing only on the pain. The respect and understanding experienced in grief counseling will assist you to overcome your loss much more easily.

In grief counseling, you will have the opportunity to explore the depth of the relationship with the person you're grieving, as well as the meanings they brought to your life and well-being. You will have time to uncover aspects of the relationship you miss, aspects of the relationship that helped you transform and grow, and aspects of the relationship that will help you be a better person in the future. You will also have the chance to create a new relationship with the person if you would like that. The goal of grief therapy is to integrate that person into your understanding of yourself and your life and to move into a new future without that person.

Often grief and loss unexpectedly arrive on our doorstep. We are sad, confused, hurt, and maybe having to deal with all sorts of related details, and are called upon to help our family and friends with their grief process. Therapy helps you put your process and feelings in perspective. There is no “normal” way of grieving, or surviving loss (to include loss of a job, a home, or a divorce, etc). Counseling will help you with your unique approach to healing. We can use the frame of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, who defines grieving in 5 stages, denial, anger, bargaining depression, acceptance. Children and adults may benefit from Sandplay to work thru their losses.

There are no set rules for grieving. Everyone can do it in their own way and at their own pace. I will support you through the process and never insist you do something simply because of a grief counseling protocol. Feeling bad when you've lost a loved one is a good thing; we will want to make sure that natural grief is not complicated by other factors. You will feel better in time and not be immobilized by the sadness that accompanies your loss.
