Process Your Grief the Right Way

Following a loss, there is an important need to give voice to the story. Pursuing counseling and giving yourself the opportunity to put words to one of the most significant and potentially life-changing events in your life can be one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.

Often people get concerned about burdening loved ones or feel pressured to "move on" and be "over it". Counseling can be a safe place to process the event, find safety in sharing without having to edit or take care of others around you.

Grief Resource Center

"There are 3 needs of the griever:
To find the words for the loss,
to say the words aloud,
and to know that the words have been heard."

The length of time a client is in counseling depends on the nature of the problem and the goals of the counseling. Some clients have a very specific problem that can be worked through in a set course of counseling. For others, counseling is an ongoing learning process and they choose to receive counseling for a longer period.
