Your loss, relationship to the deceased, and grief journey is unique. And it may be comforting to know that there are common experiences that grievers share and a trajectory to the grief process.
For years, I have supported people of all ages, including individuals, couples, families, and groups learn to cope following the death of a loved one and adjust to life without the deceased.
Many grievers feel alone in their experience or worry about burdening or making the people in their lives uncomfortable.
Grief counseling offers you a dedicated time, place, and experienced guide/ supportive companion for you to gain tools to better cope with the loss; as well as express, explore and process a range of grief-related thoughts and feelings.
Grief counseling can be short-term or it can lead to longer-term depth work (something akin to individual psychotherapy).
Working with me, you will find an experienced guide as we focus first on managing the intensity of the grief experience; coming to a greater acceptance of the loss; and reinvesting in your current life and relationships.
Depending on your interests and commitment, we may also take up deeper questions relevant to you, such as the meaning of your relationship with the deceased; what happens after someone dies; who am I and what do I want to do with my life? Through this exploration and over time, you may come to make changes in your life circumstances based on the meaning you make of these kinds of questions.
