All of us will experience the loss of a loved one at some point in our lives. This can range from the loss of a parent, loss of a close friend, or even the loss of a beloved family pet. There is no set amount of time to grieve. Some people grieve the loss of a loved one for years. We never truly "get over" the loss of a loved one but we can find ways of coping with the loss so we can move forward with our lives. During counseling we will discuss the loved one that you lost as well as how their death has impacted your life. We will develop healthy coping skills to deal with the loss and review the stages of grief. We will also explore how your spiritual beliefs play a role in grief and loss.
