Are you feeling profound sadness after the death of a loved one?
Experiencing excessive guilt about something left unsaid or undone?
Maybe you’re gripped with fear? Caught in a cycle of anxiety, helplessness, or panic?
Or perhaps having trouble resuming a normal life with grief and pain as your constant companions?
Maybe you’d like professional support through a period of mourning?
Grief is a natural human response to loss and bereavement can be an intense and sometimes lonely experience. At times you may feel trapped on a non-stop roller-coaster, with downs and deeper downs interspersed with periods of brief respite.
Loss is a very personal journey, with some finding it more difficult than others. While grieving can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it is also common for those who are grieving to struggle with anger, conflict, a lack of understanding, or an inability to fully share feelings with others. Grief and bereavement counseling can provide you a much-needed safe space to work through your struggles with a caring, nonjudgmental professional.
We will focus on helping you feel better as you learn to cope with your loss. You will learn to express and come to terms with the broad range of emotions involved in the grieving process, from those that you may expect – such as sadness, loneliness, or exhaustion – to those that come as a surprise – such as relief, anger, or an overall sense of confusion. There are a variety of therapeutic approaches available to support you as we work together to gain strength throughout your healing journey.
So if these describe you…
– You’re struggling to come to terms with a loss
– You feel overwhelmed with grief, fear, despair, or worry
– Your faith seems shattered and you feel abandoned at your time of greatest need
– You feel alone as everyone else seems to have moved on without you
– You want to live a happier, more connected life
– You’d like professional support to better cope through the grieving process
…Then grief and bereavement counseling may offer the support, guidance, and expert care you need.
In our grief and bereavement counseling we will work together toward reducing the pain so you can function in your post-loss life. I will listen with empathy, discuss ways to manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and teach you techniques to manage distress in order to enable you to move forward.
