Bereavement Counseling

Grief and loss are something that we will all experience in our lives. During this difficult and painful time, I can assist you through the mourning process, and help you cope with losing a loved one.

Have You Lost Someone You Love?

Coping with the death of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences in our lives, and grief is our emotional response to the pain and emptiness we’re feeling. While grief is normal and usually passes on its own; it can be overwhelming and challenging to deal with, especially since you’re dealing with many emotions at the same time. If you think that you’re having trouble coping by yourself or know someone who needs extra support during this difficult situation, I can help.

Different Types of Grief

There are different types of grief, and no two people will grieve exactly the same way.

If you believe you are having difficulty dealing with the grieving process, I can help. We will work to understand and cope with your feelings, to help you accept your loss and move forward in your life.

Emotional States of Grief

Even though the grieving process is different for every individual, there are five emotional states that are commonly experienced.



Denial is often the first stage of grief. It is a defense mechanism that helps us to deal with the news that we are facing a loss. Denial can help us cope in the short term, but it is not a sustainable way of dealing with grief for an extended period.



Anger is a natural response to loss. We may feel angry with ourselves, with others, or with the situation. It is important to express our anger in healthy ways, such as through journaling, talking with a friend, or participating in an activity that allows us to release our emotions safely.



Bargaining is often a way of trying to regain control when we feel powerless over our situation. We may find ourselves making deals with God, fate, or others in an attempt to change the outcome.



Sadness is a normal part of grieving. We may feel numb, hopeless, and disconnected from the world around us. It is important to seek professional help if we are struggling to cope with our grief.



Acceptance does not mean that we are happy about our loss. It is part of the healing process. By accepting the loss, we can deal with our feelings and achieve a peaceful resolution of our grief.

I will be with you to help process your emotions so that you can accept your loss. You will feel supported during the mourning process.
