When To Seek Grief Help

When we lose someone dear to us, we experience grief. Grieving is a very lonely process that can isolate us in our pain, anger, and denial. If you are stuck in these intense emotions for a long time, you can lose your way back to wholeness. A grief counselor can help you navigate your way through these intense emotions. Other times, the pain is so intense we avoid or deny feeling our grief. It feels like we are going to drown or not survive so we shut off feeling anything. This can lead to depression or anxiety in other parts of our lives. We all yearn to feel complete and whole again. Seeking a grief counselor can help us find a new direction in our life.
