Grief and loss counseling can help you to explore and process the feelings that come after the loss of a loved one. Grief can also happen after a big life change as well, such as a divorce, a failed goal or dream, or even the loss of a job. Whether you are grieving a recent loss, or if you are still coping with grief years later, healing is possible with the help of a grief and bereavement counselor.
The team of licensed therapists at REACH Behavioral Health can help you work toward healing by processing and navigating feelings associated with grief, including:
Bereavement counseling is not intended to hurry the process of overcoming grief; rather, it is designed to provide support as you explore the feelings associated with your loss, and supply you with the tools you need to adjust to the new normal in your own way and at your own pace.
Grief and loss counseling has many purposes, from guiding you through the stages of grief to identifying strategies to cope when you feel overwhelmed. This can then lead you to a place of acceptance on your own terms. There is no wrong way to feel grief, and recovery is often not linear.
Working with a counselor can give you the freedom to process any feelings that arise, and lets you take as much time as you need to work through them in a manner that feels comfortable for you.
REACH clients can receive grief and bereavement counseling services in an individualized or a family setting conducted by a licensed therapist.
Individualized Grief Counseling
Working with a grief therapist one-on-one allows you to work through feelings associated with loss in a timeline that is specific to your own journey. REACH therapists will address your specific needs and develop an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) to best help you toward healing with individualized therapeutic goals.
Family Grief Counseling
At REACH, family counseling is provided that may include a focus on both the individuals within the family and the family system as a whole. Family grief counseling can help people work through their loss together and learn coping strategies to adjust to a new dynamic, creating a strong system of support.
It’s important to acknowledge that everyone grieves differently. Grief counseling and grief therapy can help you navigate your own journey toward healing and reach a place of acceptance in the wake of a loss.
