Grief and Loss

We all experience a loss at some point in our lives. In fact, statistics show that 1 in 5 children will experience loss or death before 18 years of age. Feelings of grief and loss are not always associated with death, but commonly surface after a loss of some kind. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a severed relationship, a pregnancy, a pet, or a job.

When a person loses something or someone valuable to them, feelings of grief can be overbearing. Grief can leave a person feeling sad, hopeless, isolated, irritable, and numb by affecting them mentally, emotionally, and physically. It’s important to understand that healing from grief is a process and everyone copes with this emotion differently based on their personality, culture, and beliefs, among many other factors. It may be hard to know how to manage and overcome these emotions. 

There is no orderly process of passing through stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. An important part of healing is knowing that you are not alone. Have patience with yourself and others and allow yourself to mourn the loss. Remember to take care of yourself in the most healthy way. Throughout the therapeutic process, a safe environment will be provided as you work through the intense emotions you may be enduring. 

Grief never ends but it changes
It’s a passage, not a place to stay
Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith
Grief is the price of love
