Do I need grief counseling?


Grief counseling can help you when your self-healing process seems to have stalled. Typically, if your feelings are interfering with your work or life, it might be time to consider grief counseling.

Other signs you may want grief counseling include:

  • Intense sadness

  • Longing or yearning

  • Feelings of emptiness or meaninglessness

  • Difficulty engaging in happy memories

  • Avoiding any reminders of the departed

  • Preoccupation with the deceased

  • Preoccupation with the circumstances surrounding their death

  • Lack of desire in your personal interests

  • Bitterness or anger

How does grief counseling work?

I will help you understand what particular thoughts, events or actions activate your grief. A treatment plan might include traditional individual therapy, meditation, relaxation, reflection, memory sharing or group work.

When the loss involves a family member, it’s often helpful to engage in couples counseling or family counseling. Many people find peace when sharing their thoughts, memories and feelings in a safe, loving and guided setting.
