Grief and Loss
Dallas Counseling for Grief and Loss
Most of us understand that grief and loss typically accompany the death of a loved one, but there are many other types as well. These common but deeply held feelings can also be the result of the end of a marriage or partnership, friendship, job or even a certain phase of your life such as becoming an empty nester or other significant transition.
They say “Time heals all wounds” but many of us need more than
time. It’s not unusual for people to fully experience grief and loss and not even realize it. We may go ahead with our lives and responsibilities after an upsetting event because we have to, yet we continue feeling out of sorts. Or, we spend increasingly more time alone, finding little pleasure in the things we used to enjoy. Unwittingly, we join the “Walking Wounded Club” because we tell ourselves, “It could be worse,” or “I shouldn’t still be sad.”
No matter the reasons behind your feelings, grief and loss are real. Talking with an experienced therapist can help you process what has transpired and give you the proper tools to manage your emotions in the healthiest possible way.
