Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

When we lose someone we love, it feels like we have lost a part of ourselves. Something within us has been torn out, leaving a hole that we easily imagine will never heal. The pain can be profound, the feelings of helplessness, or regret, or guilt overwhelming. Having a partnership where you can talk through these feelings can make a huge difference not only in how quickly and how well you are able to move through the process of grieving, but also how you ultimately are able to frame the experience and your memories of the person lost into the narrative of your own self and life as you move forward. What you carry with you afterward is just as important as surviving the hurt of the loss.

All change is grief and loss. This includes the death of a loved one, ending a relationship, leaving a job, and more. Grief and loss counseling with me is about honoring your loss in a non-judgmental space. People think there is only one way to grieve, with a set timeline and steps. The reality is grief can be messy and scattered, and progress is not linear. We will take the time to explore the pain, the triggers, the effects, and the impact of the loss. An unspoken part of grief and loss is how it changes your world and in turn your self-concept. No shocker here that I like to spend time exploring this side of grief and loss as well.

Some budgeting needed
