Grieving is one of the most common human experiences, yet many people feel very alone in the face of a great loss.
In our culture, we do not pay close enough attention to the emotional, spiritual, or psychological pain associated with the death of a loved one. Grief counseling can help.
Consider grief counseling if someone you care about has died and you:
- feel overwhelmed by your feelings (feelings may include not just sadness, but also anger, regret, remorse, guilt, or shame)
- feel alone with your grief
- are having difficulty coping with daily life since your loss
- are questioning the meaning of life, your values, or your faith
- want to make sure you are “on the right track” in your grieving process
- could use some support as you make sense of your loss
- are feeling unsure about where to turn next
- are having difficulty concentrating, eating, sleeping, or maintaining relationships since the death of your loved one
