Grief

You are not alone. There is hope.

 

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.”

– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

 

The loss of a loved one is painful.

There aren’t words to describe the type of emotional, physical and mental pain.

There may be good days and bad days or just waives of different emotions.

 

Grieving a loved one is a journey that is never meant to be done alone.   

 

There is help.

 

If you have noticed changes in your mood, energy, motivation, social interactions, and just overall functioning, those are signs that you may need support.

 

Many times, we seek comfort from loved ones and friends who mean well, however may struggle to understand the complexity of grief and may unintentionally say things that feel painful.

 

This does not mean that we need to withdraw from our support system.

 

However, it may mean we need to process the loss of our loved one with an unbiased and understanding professional.

 

Counseling can help process the layers and nuances of the loss in a compassionate and humane way.

 

A professional provider helps facilitate the healing process when experiencing a loss.

 

There are various techniques, interventions and modalities that are available when working with a mental health professional to help process grief.

 

Know that you are not alone and that there is always hope.
