Loss is a most difficult event in any person's life and it can paralyze to the point of complete isolation and inactivity. The grieving process can be a torturous one and one that robs a person of their life force. The process of grieving must be respected as a powerful one that resolves at its own pace. The therapist cannot force this process, but rather joins with the client in the journey of recovery.

People experience grief and loss from many things... the illness of a loved one, a death, the loss of one's health, wealth, or job. People move to different parts of the country and experience deep loss because of this. People often overlook chronic loss, which can be one of the worst types of loss. This is one has an ongoing experience of loss, like waiting for a loved one to die, or expecting to lose your home at any time. Talking about these feelings and coming to understand yourself int erms of the losses can make them easier to live with. In addition, by using Internal Family Systems Therapy, sometimes the intensity of the pain can be lessened, even if the loss cannot be changed.
