Adjusting to life without a spouse, child, parent, close relative, or friend takes time, support, and patience. One of the many challenges associated with grieving the loss of a loved one, is adjusting to the new reality of living without them. Everyone grieves in his or her own way and in his or her own time. Some people are emotional and dive into their feelings, while others are stoic and may seek distraction. No way is better than another.
Sometimes a person struggles to adjust to the loss and needs help working through their grief. Therapy can help them learn to cope with the stressors associated with the loss and to manage their symptoms with coping techniques such as relaxation or mindfulness. Each person’s experience with grief is unique and personal and our therapists will tailor treatment to meet the specific needs of each person.
