GRIEF & LOSS
I have extensive experience working with people coping with the sadness and pain that accompanies the loss of a loved one, physical function, and even pet loss. The grieving process is a uniquely individual process. It is impossible to forget the loss of a loved one. However, grief not dealt with can lead to a pathological grief issues of many years duration. In these cases, it is often unresolved grief issues from an earlier event that prolongs or impedes the healing process.
An experienced counselor can help people transition through the phases or cycles of recovery and provide support with compassionate understanding. Part of the process is to normalize what the grieving individual is experiencing. Many have said, "I should be feeling better by now," or "I can't believe I'm still depressed." The point is, nobody grieves in the same way and it is critically important honor the differences in the process.
