As Americans we are not comfortable with grief and as a result, many times our friends and family would like us to hurry up and get over the various losses of life. A loss can, of course, be the death of a loved one, but it could also be losing a pet, life-long dreams, a lifestyle, a job, and pretty much anything involved in some kind of life change. As your counselor, I will walk with you through some of your pain and work to help you find the comfort that brings healing.

Grief and depression are not the same thing, and it is important to understand the distinction between them. The overwhelming feeling of sadness associated with grief is a normal and important part of regaining balance after a loss. Depression more permanent and is experienced over an extended amount of time.

Grief can often look like depression or anxiety, but it is its own separate thing. I look at the underpinnings of grief, what triggers and drives the feelings and behaviors, not just the symptoms themselves. When grief is mixed with some other emotion, like relief or anger, things can get more complicated. Time heals all wounds, but counseling can help them heal faster and better.

Grief is our whole body's response to loss. Our body responds emotionally, spiritually, and mentally to all our losses. Dealing with grief is a "required course" in our lives. If we do not deal directly and meaningfully with our grief, then our lives are going to be diminished significantly. It is not true that "time heals all wounds". However, it is true that time--WITH DETERMINED FOCUS--heals most wounds. Don't wait for time to just "pass by" and end up even further behind. Call--let's do the grief work that honors those we have lost AND makes space for a future that has a smile.
