Grief & Loss Counseling
Coping with Grief and Loss
We grieve losses other than death, too.
Grief Counseling encompasses many kinds of loss:
- Loss of a job
- Changes in relationships
- New health diagnosis
- Family changes
When to Seek Therapy for Grief and Loss in Chicago, IL
Seeking support from a therapist can help. Here are some signs that your grief may be overwhelming you:
- Withdrawal from others, feeling isolated
- Difficulty taking care of our basic needs or the needs of our family
- Post-traumatic stress such as flashbacks
- Hopelessness and despair
- Anxiety or panic attacks
- Loss of appetite or trouble sleeping
A LifePath Therapy Associates Grief Counselor Can Help
We each grieve in our own way, and therapy can be a healing space to make sense of your experience and help you get through this difficult time. We can help you safely process your grief at a pace that feels right for you, as well as help you manage in other areas of your life. Grief is often treated as something we must overcome, rather than a lifelong process of learning to live with loss and the feelings that will naturally arise. Together you and your therapist will work toward reducing suffering, finding acceptance and integrating the loss. You don’t have to be “strong,” there’s no timeline for grief, and you don’t have to do this alone.
