Grief Counseling

What is Grief?

Grief is dealing with sadness from loss. You may be grieving family loss, a health issue, a job loss, a breakup, or even because of aging. Although there are basic stages of shock, denial, anger, depression and acceptance, everyone processes those differently. Grief that last longer than a few weeks to months may be more complicated.

You need grief if you have a lack of hope, a lack of planning for what to do next, or anxiety over it. Reflections grief specialists are happy to help you through your painful transition so you can find joy again!
