Grief and loss touches all of us at some point. From the death of loved ones, to ending cherished relationships, or marking painful transitions; grieving is an experience that connects us with both the harsh and the precious realities of death and life. Many of us have not been allowed the space to fully process and explore our grief, and this may lead to feelings of sadness, despair, a sense of meaninglessness, difficulty moving on, feeling numb or not wanting to feel at all.
Therapy focuses on your individual experience of grief, using whatever system of meaning, whether secular or spiritual, fits for you. The pain of loss can lead to learning new things about ourselves, our capacity for empathy and understanding, and creating space for the unknown. Grief work can help you process your relationships with those who are no longer with you, find ways to honor your past, and move forward towards finding wholeness.
