Grief and Bereavement Therapy
Grief and loss, something that the majority of the time we do not choose, can often be the thief in the night that is thrust upon us. It can be difficult and at times can feel like we have a limb cut off that will never be replaced. However, in times of grief and loss, there is a natural path that emotions and thoughts take that eventually lead to a place of acceptance or integration of that loss into present/ future life. However, that path can often be disorienting along the way. C.S. Lewis writes in A Grief Observed, “Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape.” Grief and loss therapy can help with the guidance of moving through this valley. Things that one can expect when entering in this type of therapy: a contained space to process grief thoughts and emotions to honor your loved one or your loss, psychoeducation to the grieving process, guidance through the difficult parts of the uncharted grief journey, emotion management, exploration of life’s overall grief story and trauma reprocessing if needed.
