Grief is a complex emotion that might be the result of a wide variety of experiences in your life. We can experience grief because of losing someone close to us because of death or a separation, a lost job, a big change in our lives, and many other reasons. Feeling grief because of these experiences is natural. However, if grief is beginning to overwhelm you, it may be time for counseling. Dr. Devers offers grief counseling in NJ and PA via telehealth to those who feel like grief is starting to affect their everyday life, their future, their choices, and their relationships.
How Can Grief Counseling Help?
Part of what makes grief so hard is that we may not feel ready to “move on”. So how can grief counseling help?
- Even if you’re not ready to “move on” from the root of what’s causing grief, grief counseling can help you learn to live with grief while still being able to live a healthy life.
- A grief counselor can help you make sense of your experiences. Grief isn’t always so black and white, but an outside observer can help you put your grief into perspective.
- Counseling provides a warm and safe-space where you can speak freely. Your counselor is there to listen and provide insight; not make judgments about your situation or choices.
- A grief counselor can help provide you with the tools to move forward and manage your grief in a healthy way.
- A grief counselor can help you understand grief and, when you’re ready, begin to help you move forward.
