Grief & Loss
North Woods Christian Counseling
Our graduate-trained therapists often work with issues of grief and loss. We can help you identify and move through the grief process, and will provide the acceptance and support you need during this difficult time. While we will meet you where you're at, regardless of your spiritual background, as Christian counselors we're uniquely prepared to speak words of hope from a Biblical perspective. While the pain is real, we believe in a loving God who promises to be with us in the midst of our pain, and who will not leave us or forsake us...a God who will comfort and strengthen us through the challenges of life, and remind us of the hope we have in Christ to see our loved ones again someday.

Grief and loss encompasses many different things. The loss of a job, relationship, miscarriage, fertility issues and death all create complex reactions and can lead to anxiety, depression, hopelessness and helplessness. Many times we feel isolated in grief and loss, which further exacerbates the emotional toll that grief can take. I work with my clients to express and process grief and the emotional reactions that follow it, by normalizing their experience, identify and developing healthy ways to cope with the loss so that they don't get "stuck" in the process. We all experience loss and it is imperative to have a safe place to express what are normal feelings and reactions.
