What is your relationship to grief?
Grief decides how it will move, and it is unique to each person. Learning how you are in relationship to the movement can expand possibilities and support healing. Sometimes, additional support beyond family and friends is needed. The process I use in grief counseling is one of deep respect for how grief moves for you, increasing self-awareness and self-empowerment, and cultivating a deeper connection to your self.
What if you do not need to grieve alone?
Grief work with a therapist affords an opportunity to honor your experience. Depending on what arises for you, this may include exploration of how you are coping with emotions, body-mind resourcing, remembering and reorienting to yourself, creative and experiential ways to integrate healing. Additionally, there are practical strategies for navigating family dynamics, approaching guilt and forgiveness and seeking satisfying ways to remember and reconnect.
There is no loss that is “too small” and I have experience with complicated grief, traumatic loss and multiple losses.
- Death of a loved one
- Pregnancy loss
- Divorce, break-up, end of friendships
- Job loss or move
- Life changes, planned or unexpected, and transitions of all kinds
There is no grief like the grief that does not speak. -Henry Wordsworth
