Grief & Loss

Almost everyone experiences grief at some point in life. The death of a loved one, the loss of a job, a broken heart, witnessed a tragic event, survived a car accident, sustained a sports injury, or otherwise, it’s easy to feel not only caught off guard but also confused, unsettled, and fearful.

 

Grief can sometimes come out of nowhere or can be felt very intensely even when we know to expect the event. No matter how subtle or severe your loss, the grieving process can sometimes hit harder than you ever expected, shifting your perception on everything around you.  Grief, and the way we process and explore it, looks different for different people. Grief may be short-lived, or it may stay with us in some form our whole lives.

 

When you grieve, you may experience more than sadness. You may also feel regret, guilt, relief, anger, or a whole host of other emotions. Grieving may heighten your emotions, or you may feel emotionally numb after a loss. You may not be sleeping, may not be eating well, and may not be focused on your own well-being while grieving. Your emotions may change from day to day or even from hour to hour. You may feel that life will never be the same again and that you are left without a way to move forward.

 

Therapy can help you process your intense emotions and overcome obstacles in the way of your grieving progression.
