Bereavement and Grief

Grief can be a profound and overwhelming experience. If you come from a family that never talked much about death, grieving can feel confusing and even frightening. It’s common to find yourself with unanticipated questions about how your life can go on.

If you have lost someone close to you, you might:

  • Cry all the time
  • Feel flat or numb, or physically exhausted
  • Laugh at inappropriate times
  • Have bouts of anger that seem to come from nowhere
  • Be anxious, worried, or afraid
  • Have trouble sleeping
  • Feel unexpectedly relieved or guilty

The grieving process looks different for everyone, and can sometimes affect our day-to-day functioning in difficult ways. I work with people experiencing loss to move through the grief and to come to terms with what has been lost, while developing a sense of what comes next. You don’t have to go through this alone. We can work together to guide you through a healthy grieving process, and help you find comfort in yourself and your loved ones. I can give you tools to start feeling better so that you can face the future.
