Grief and Loss

When we experience a loss, we need to grieve. If we don’t, the grief will fester and control us in ways that can be damaging to our relationships and ourselves. Loss can include loss of a loved one, loss of childhood due to abuse/neglect, excessive moving, loss of a pet, and divorce or separation.

Counseling provides a container for the grieving person to go through his or her emotions. In addition to sadness, loss can bring up other emotions such as anger, numbness, indifference and fear. These reactions could be confusing and disturbing. Sometimes a current loss can stir up past losses that have not been attended to.
