Grief + Loss
No one grieves the same way, there is no “right” way or “right” feeling, but having compassionate support can help you rebuild and feel more like yourself again.
Losing someone that you love can be one of the hardest, most painful things in life that we have to face. Grief is a universal human experience, one that is both profound and complex and can accompany not only the loss of a loved one but also of a job, a relationship, or even a sense of identity. It is a highly individualized process with no right or wrong way to grieve or feelings to have.
We may experience a very wide range of emotions, often appearing in waves and sometimes catching us off guard. Some of these may include deep sadness, anger, guilt, resentment, disbelief, anxiety, loneliness, and even relief. You may find yourself cycling through these emotions unpredictably, and this variability, while completely understandable, can also make us feel completely destabilized, affecting daily life, work, relationships, and overall well-being. For some, being able to concentrate or focus becomes more difficult, motivation now feels out of reach, or sleep is constantly disrupted. For others, physical symptoms such as headaches or changes in appetite may also present.
Having an empathetic, supportive therapist by your side to join you in reliving memories and mourning can be a deeply meaningful piece of navigating the multifaceted, challenging process of grief. We will help you identify and process your emotions, find meaning in your loss, connect and communicate with your support system to feel less alone, foster resilience that lies within you, develop coping strategies, and make proactive moves to rebuilding your life after loss and feeling more like yourself again.
