Are you feeling profound sadness after losing someone or something to illness, death and / or other life challenges?
Experiencing excessive guilt about something left unsaid or undone?
Being gripped with fear? Caught in a cycle of anxiety, helplessness, or panic?
Or having trouble resuming a normal life with grief and pain as your constant companions?
Maybe you’d like professional support through a period of mourning?
Grief is a natural human response to loss, but that doesn’t mean bereavement of a loved one isn’t an intense and at times desolate experience. While painful experiences are normal during this time, your emotions may feel trapped on a non-stop roller coaster, with downs and deeper downs interspersed with periods of brief respite.
Loss is a very personal journey, with some finding it more difficult than others. While grieving for the same person can often foster compassion and connection among family and friends, it’s also common for the grieving to struggle with anger, conflict, a lack of understanding, or an inability to fully share your feelings with others.
Grief and bereavement counseling offers a non judgmental, safe space for you to work through any issues you are unable to with others. Grief and bereavement counseling can provide you a much-needed safe space to work through your struggles with a caring, nonjudgmental professional.
My approaches focus on helping people feel better and learn to cope with their grieving experience. You’ll learn to express and come to terms with the broad range of emotions involved in the grieving process, from those that you may expect — sadness, loneliness, exhaustion – to those that come as a surprise, such as relief, anger, and a sense of confusion. I offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to best support you and work with you as an equal collaborator to empower and engage your healing.
So if these describe you…
– You’re struggling to come to terms with a loss
– You feel overwhelmed with grief, fear, despair, or worry
– Your faith seems shattered and you feel abandoned at your time of greatest need
– You feel alone as everyone else seems to have moved on without you
– You want to live a happier, more connected life
– You’d like professional support to better cope through the grieving process
…Then grief and bereavement counseling may offer the support, guidance, and expert care you need.
In our grief and bereavement counseling, you and I work together toward lessening the pain and resolving the losses so you can function well again in your post-loss life. If you’d like me to show you how, please contact me today for an appointment.
