Loss, death, and grief touch all of our lives. I am no exception. Like most people, I’ve felt the pain that follows the deaths of grandparents, extended family members, and friends. And, I’ve said good-bye to family pets. For me, though, the most heart wrenching losses occurred when my first husband, after a prolonged struggle, died from complications from a bone marrow transplant; when my mother received her terminal diagnosis on the same day my father was moved to hospice and they died nine weeks apart; and when, in March of 2016, our beautiful 14-yr-old granddaughter took her own life. I am well acquainted with the pain of grieving and the tasks that follow.
The moments, hours, and days immediately after the death of a loved one are one thing…. and living without them in the subsequent months and years is another.
When one’s heart has broken, the challenge of living can feel overwhelming. When it feels like life has fallen apart, it’s easy to lose your bearings. Sometimes the way you relate to your grief adds even more pain.
Grief counseling can help you find your way through that pain and into the reality of living in the world without your beloved.
You have a wonderful gift to make a person feel comfortable around you right away and comfortable enough to be able to look at all the “tough” spots.Note from Former Client
