When a Loved One Dies
- Why do I feel so confused? Is this normal?
- How do I connect with someone who understands? Find meaning?
- I have little energy. How long does grief last?
- How can I deal with my anger, guilt, or regret?
- How do I help my child or teen who is grieving?
While grief is a normal, healing emotion, experiencing it can be hard. Our therapists, who are trained in grief and bereavement, can help you explore your personal grief journey and discover strategies to make this experience more meaningful. We do not talk in terms of “getting over grief” or “putting it behind you” but rather “how to integrate grief into your life.”Contact us to help you sort through these questions and more, at no cost.
