Comprehensive Grief Counseling

Grieving is the natural and necessary process humans must undergo to resume psychological, physical, and spiritual balance after experiencing loss. Loss occurs when a change in life circumstance requires an individual to adjust to a new way of being in – and understanding – the world.

Life losses may include:

  • The death of loved ones
  • Physical illness or cognitive decline
  • Changes in relationships
  • Strained relationships due to substance use or abuse
  • New phases in life
  • Job transitions
