Professional Counseling to Work Through the Grief Process
When we experience a loss it is common to feel sorrow and sadness. The period of time when we mourn and grieve following a loss is known as bereavement. The length of time needed for each individual is personal and individualized. The stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and, ultimately, acceptance. There may be times when a family member or loved one does not have a smooth transition through the grief process. Sometimes a professional grief counselor is needed to help us through the stages of grief. It is helpful to have someone to talk to about what you are feeling.
“You cannot get over grief, get under it, or go around it—you can only go through it.”
