Grief & Loss Therapy
Grief can be described as a distinct or overwhelming sadness. Typically these feelings stem from a significant loss such as the death of a loved one (bereavement). It can also be felt connected to the diagnosis/prognosis of a major ailment or injury, the loss of a job or the ending of an important personal relationship.
Although it may last for months or even years, grief is considered a temporary condition. You’ve likely heard there are several identifiable stages that usually occur as part of grieving: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Each phase is important in the healing process and the ability for the individual to move forward.
