Grief Therapy

October 20th, 2008

Grief and loss comes in many shapes and forms. It can be the death of a loved one, a death of a pet, the loss of health. It can also take the shape of a damaged relationship.

We also grieve when we realize what we didn’t get…from our parents, from life, from work. It can be helpful to take time to process these feelings. While grief is a difficult emotion, paying attention to it can help you recover and live life to the fullest. You may feel like your friends and family just don’t understand. Or perhaps you think that they are tired of hearing about it. Maybe they feel, as do you, that you should “be over it.” If you’re a man, you might have a particular need to be strong. However, if you don’t grieve, it will still come out… as anger, irritation, tiredness, or a variety of other ways.

Therapy and counseling can help. I will work with you in creating a space where these feelings and thoughts are expressed – without judgement and with acceptance. You can honor and grieve your losses, even when it is difficult. Healing is possible.
