Grief Therapy

The pain of loss can be overwhelming. Our personal losses are deeply challenging and personal, and no one experiences them the same. When you feel lost, stuck, and overwhelmed with grief, seeking help is wise and healthy. Grieving alone or holding everything inside only prolongs your suffering and can even cause long-term problems. 

Grief Therapy with Tri-Star Counseling focuses on helping you find a sense of closure and integrating your loss into your life. While the pain of grief may always be present, therapy aims to help you reach a place where you can remember your loved one with love and move forward with renewed purpose and resilience.

Exploring Loss

Our lives are not static. They are always changing, and one of those changes is loss. Losing someone close to us is never easy. The intensity of our grief is proportional to the importance of the person we lost. People who play critical and influential roles in our lives leave a huge gap. Numerous factors influence how we deal with grief. 

Shock, numbness, and denial: Feeling dazed or stunned as if the events of loss are not real. Many people say, “It feels like a dream.” Your emotions haven’t caught up with reality. 

Searching, yearning, and confusion: Confronting death and loss often leaves people feeling disorganized and confused. Agitation and anger can result from your lack of understanding. 

Fear, anxiety, and pain: Your life can now seem to be without purpose. Some experience fears over what may happen to them and when. Panic and feeling vulnerable are not uncommon. 

Meandering emotions: Volatile and sudden emotions run the gamut from anger, sadness, resentment, blame, terror, hatred, fear, and even jealousy. We are emotional beings so this is natural. 

When Do I Need Grief Therapy?

Many people can benefit from professional guidance and support to navigate their grief journey. How do you know when you need to seek compassionate help from a grief therapist?
