Grief is a very real and painful experience with many dimensions, and it has no time limit. Well-meaning loved ones may not understand the extent of your grief and pain. Mourning is a process that is unique and personal. Not everyone grieves in the same way nor does everyone require the same amount of time to work through their grief. Grief can be complicated by the length of the relationship with the person who died, the nature of that relationship, any traumatic components to the loss, multiple losses, and the strength of your remaining support system. If your grief feels overwhelming or your depression lasting, contact me for the support you need to heal and find your way forward.
