GRIEF AND LOSS THERAPY

WHAT GRIEF IS

Therapy for grief related to significant loss includes individual grief-oriented psychotherapy. For therapy following such loss, moving forward in a healthy way includes assisting the patient with his/her ability to experience, express, and adjust to painful grief-related changes. Grief work can help identify effective ways to cope with painful life changes resulting from loss. If the loss is in the form of a death, establishing a continued relationship with the person who died is a way to make meaning out of that loss. Tending to one’s physical health is essential. Re-establishing relationships and understanding that others may have difficulty empathizing with the grief they experience is also critical.  Grief-oriented psychotherapy can help one develop a healthy image of oneself and the world. 

For more specific losses, such as loss of a loved one by suicide, we have free monthly support group offerred by Community Support After Suicide (CSAS).
