Grief and loss are a part of the human condition. Grief is typically considered to be brought on by the death of a loved one, but can also be triggered by any significant life-altering loss (such as a divorce or the loss of a job). Grief is a natural response to loss, but that doesn’t make it easy to deal with. Symptoms of grief may include sadness, loneliness, anger, denial, depression and a myriad of other thoughts and feelings. There is no “normal” amount of time for grief to pass, but if you find that your grief is not improving over time or that it is interfering with your everyday life, you may want to consider seeking professional help. A qualified grief counselor can help you to cope with the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s grief experts today.
"Vulnerable people are powerful people."- Amy Poehler. It can be hard to find places in life where we can simply just be. We often carry the weight of familial, relational, occupational, or societal pressures and expectations, leading us to feel as if we have lost ourselves or as if our wants, needs, and experiences do not matter. I look forward to helping my clients see their worth and work through mental health challenges.
