We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Grief is our natural response to loss and the way we grieve is unique to all of us.
If you have suffered the loss of a parent, grandparent, spouse, sibling, child, or other loved one, then you know that grief causes feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, regret, despair, or confusion. For some of us, the pain associated with grief becomes less difficult over time as we learn to cope with the loss. However, when grief is prolonged, causes intense feelings or disruption in your life, such as poor sleep, weight loss, overeating, withdrawal from previously enjoyed activities or relationships, problems with school or work performance, persistent anger or rage, substance use, suicidal thoughts, or self-harm, then you should consider talking with a mental health professional.
Our therapists at PCS provide you with a safe and supportive space where you can process your feelings, so you can better understand your grief, learn ways to cope and heal from your loss, restore hope, and adjust to a new life.
