Just because it is hard to do, does not mean it is impossible to achieve
Death, the ultimate loss. Finding life again . . . .
Your husband, your wife. Your mother or father. Your child. How can this person be gone?
There's a hole in the world. And it's not just an empty place; it's like a vacuum sucking at the rest of your life.
Maybe you've always feared this, maybe you've been through it before, or maybe you had no idea just how bad grief can be.
Life goes on as they say. You've said it yourself, to others. What else can a person do? But what you don't understand is how it goes on.
Loss is inevitable, and mourning quite normal, but you don't have to go through it alone. Therapy provides a confidential and safe place where you don't have to worry about leaning too hard or taking "too long."
As a psychotherapist, I know that everyone grieves at their own pace, and that often other issues arise after a loss, some of them seeming to have nothing to do with what happened. Major losses attract fear and feelings of inadequacy or guilt like magnets.
Please call me. I can help.
