After the loss of someone close to you, you may be experiencing overwhelming symptoms of grief. It may affect your motivation and concentration, or fill your life with sadness, anger, worry, social withdrawal, and poor sleep. Many individuals report feeling numb or in shock. Others avoid thinking about the loss and try to push through. Whatever your grief reaction, it can lead to difficulty in your relationships, your work, and your life.
Grief reactions can last for weeks, months, or years, depending on the severity of the loss, as well as the support system of a patient and their relationship with the loved one. Anniversaries, birthdays, and significant life events can even trigger feelings of grief and loss years after their death. Sometimes normal grief leads to lingering feelings of depression, sadness, and anxiety. We offer individual and family counseling for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. Together, we will help you manage your symptoms of grief, find meaning in your life after the loss, and reenter the world.
