Are you grieving the loss of a loved one?
Is your grief keeping you isolated from others in your life?
Are you finding it difficult to cope with your grief?
Grief is a deeply personal experience. It’s also often an extremely isolating one. Coping with the death of a loved one can be more difficult than you ever imagined. Some people need support immediately, while others find themselves in need of support weeks, months or even years after the loss.
Understanding that there is no “right” way to grieve, we provide a safe space for you to explore what would be most helpful as we support your gradual movement through the process of grieving. For some, this may include things like expressing all of your feelings about the loss without feeling rushed or pressured to feel better; creating rituals that honor cherished memories and allow time and space for acknowledging the loss; or finding ways to live in the present moment while still maintaining a sense of connection to whomever you’ve lost.
Some losses are complicated by traumatic events. These traumas can take many forms, perhaps related to what someone might have witnessed during the course of an illness or accident; death resulting from violence; or a troubled relationship with the deceased that might include a history of unresolved conflicts or even abuse. Other losses, such as miscarriages or stillbirths, are often misunderstood or minimized, which can leave the bereaved without a sense that it’s okay to feel the way they’re feeling or that they are welcome to reach out for necessary support from family and friends.
We have extensive experience working with people of all ages who’ve experienced losses of all kinds. Starting, always, with compassion and warmth, we are committed to providing individualized treatment that helps gently facilitate movement through the deep pain of grief.
