Grief and Loss

Everyone experiences loss. Whether it be a loved one, romantic partner, friend, or family member losing someone from your life can be deeply painful. The weight of these emotions can feel like a heaviness in your entire body and can cause difficulties thinking clearly. Grief can inspire feelings of depression, anger, emptiness, and psychic pain. For most people grief lasts about two weeks in an acute phase (grief most of the day everyday) and comes in waves that become less frequent over the course of time.

Grief is a complex experience and there are no right and wrong ways to grieve. Grief that is prolonged, debilitating and that prevents someone from engaging with family, friends and the future can benefit from psychotherapy.

Treatment at Thriving Point may enable you to honor your lost loved one without being consumed by that loss.
