GRIEF

A sudden, tragic loss shatters our sense of order.  It abruptly thrusts us into a world forever changed. Survivors of a loss experience a greater sense of vulnerability and heightened anxiety. The safe world that you once knew no longer exists.

We all experience feelings of grief and loss.  Everyone is unique in how they cope with their losses.  Some people choose to ignore their sad feelings and move on with their lives.  They might bury themselves in their work.  Other people may feel overwhelmed and all alone.  They may use drugs or alcohol to numb the pain.  Others will respond in anger; they want to lash out and protect themselves.

The more intense the relationship, the longer it will take you to grieve its loss.  Trying to make sense of and to understand a sudden loss can be overwhelming. When someone you love dies unexpectedly or violently, their death can leave you feeling alone and bewildered.   There was no time to say good-bye. There was no time to say, "I love you."


 
Are You Seeking Counseling?
 
I am professional counselor, licensed by the State of Texas.  If you are interested in meeting with me, I offer a 30-minute free consultation.  Studies suggest that the one of the most important healing factors in therapy is a good personality match.  We can use this time to talk about what's troubling you and see if I am the best person to fit your needs.  To schedule an appointment, please send me an email.  I'd like to help.
