Grief & Bereavement Counseling
It can be tempting to simply “move on” after a major loss. In our culture there is implicit and explicit pressure to seek “closure.” Sometimes we say “goodbye” a little too well and continue to miss those we have lost. The decision to avoid grieving a loss is really one of delay, and one that can have lasting consequences on our ability to experience joy. Un-grieved losses stay with us in one way or another, until we make the time and effort to honor the feelings and meaning associated with our loss.
If you have experienced a loss in your recent or distant past that you suspect continues to impact your physical, emotional, or social state, counseling can be of help. The way past a loss is the way through. Revisiting the emotions of loss with the support of another in a non-social counseling relationship can enable a healthy grieving process to take place.
