Grief & Loss
People generally associate grief with the death of a loved one, but any loss can cause grief, including the loss of a relationship, your health, and or your job. Individuals may experience all kinds of difficult emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness won’t stop. These emotions can be very painful, accepting them as part of the grieving process and allowing yourself to feel what you feel is important for healing.
Grieving depends on many factors such as personality and coping style, life experiences, faith, and the nature of the loss. The grieving process takes time. Therapy focuses on providing support, coping mechanisms, and planning ahead for “grief” triggers.
