grief and loss
Grief is much more complex than we are taught it is. Whether you’re experiencing the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, or losing an important part of yourself, it is normal to feel intense and conflicting feelings.
Our relationship with who or what we lost determines a lot of that complexity. Was that relationship mostly positive, negative, or ambivalent? Did it feel integral to your life and identity (like losing a parent, child, or spouse/partner)? Was the loss sudden, or did you have time to prepare? Did you get to say goodbye? Or maybe you’re experiencing anticipatory grief about a loss yet to come?
In addition to my own personal experiences with grief, I have worked with many different kinds of grieving individuals and groups. Everything you’re going through is normal, even if it doesn’t feel like it.
I can support you in getting through this painful and transformative experience.
