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 frequently
- 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
I work with people experiencing loss to move through the grief and to come to terms with what has happened, while developing a sense of what comes next.
