Grief and loss

Grief and Loss

Grief is the human response to loss. Loss can be experienced as the death of a loved one, unforeseen changes in relationships, shifting roles, loss of good health, or any experience that causes diminished feelings of certainty and security. Grief does not follow a set course and no one person grieves in the same way as the next. With grief we can expect to see any or more of the following experiences in varying intensity:

How therapy can help

Individuals and/or families may need or desire extra help and support as they navigate their unique grieving process. The therapeutic relationship can offer an opportunity to be seen and heard by an individual outside of your circle of people and experience. Professional help may also be indicated when grief is complicated by a history of trauma and loss. Regardless of the type of loss, in therapy it will be honored, respected, and explored compassionately.
