Grief/Loss

Losing a family member, a baby, a child or a pregnancy are some of the most difficult events people go through in their lives. Grief is defined as “deep sorrow, especially that caused by someone's death.” Emotions following a loss can be overwhelming. Some people fall into a grief related depression where they feel physical pain and longing. Some people become numb or experience a lack of motivation and difficulty completing even menial tasks. 

When you lose someone...

When you lose someone important to you, it is completely natural to feel depressed. If you notice that you are beginning to have difficulty functioning or that you need support in processing what happened and your emotions around it, we can help. We know that people stop talking about death too quickly and that family members and friends tend to avoid conversations about miscarriages and tragic losses. It’s okay and important to talk to someone about your feelings and to be understood. This is where we come in.

How We Can Help

We sit with our clients and validate their pain. We understand the deep hurt caused by loss and that it can feel like a lonely and hopeless time. Part of the process of grief counseling is helping you to understand and process the relationship. Another other part is giving you a place to store all of the love and memories that you no longer know what to do with. We don’t ask our clients to “move on,” we help them move forward, keeping the memory of their loved one intact. 

Healing from the pain of loss is a process that takes time. It’s a wound that may never completely heal and that reopens from time to time. It’s important to understand that we can be a support for you through this and that you do not have to suffer alone or in silence. We can walk with you through this difficult time, reach out now.
