Grief and Loss

Grief and loss is another one of the most common reasons parents seek therapy services and support. The grieving process is one that is unique to each person and the circumstances of the relationship and loss. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to compassionately guiding your child and/or family through the grieving process. Therapy may use art, play, and talk therapy to allow for the most gentle, supportive atmosphere to express feelings, sadness, and to grieve. Grief is a normal human experience and one that we will all experience in our lifetimes. Rather than viewing or characterizing the feelings of sadness, anger, confusion, denial, and despair as psychologically abnormal, a skilled clinician understands that his role is to walk the path of grief with you and your child, providing a guiding light. Parents are also offered tools and resources to aid in talking to their children about death and the grieving process.
