Grief can be lonely to travel, but not one you have to do so alone and isolated.
Most people who start grief counseling feel the substantial weight of grief and loss. This maybe you, in fact possibly your days have begun to be a blur together or maybe you would desire to remember this loved one, though it can extremely hurt when you think of them so you keep busy and avoid the memories.
With the thoughts of feeling trapped in grief, you may feel like every day is exhausting.
When you have lost someone close to you, you have a newly formed empty space in your life where that person once was. Our days then are shaped and molded by recurring reminders that they are gone and moving on feels like a betrayal to them, so you resign yourself to a joyless and even an isolated life. You have begun to isolate from all of the people and activities you once loved and find that you have become a shell of your former self.
Losing someone you love is one of the most difficult hurtles in life. It can become nearly impossible to continue engaging in work, relationships, and daily life activities without support. Everyone experiences loss in a different way, and Heavenly Therapeutic Services’ esteemed professionals are here to provide support during your grieving process. No one can prepare for the loss of a loved one, but therapy can help you feel less alone while you recover. We provide psychological tools, spiritual counseling, and referrals when necessary. We also offer guidance in finding support groups or any other resource you may find helpful during this difficult time. You deserve to live fully; take your life back from grief.

Coming to Grief Counseling Doesn’t Mean There’s Anything Wrong with You
If anything stated here thus far rings true with you, please know that it’s ok to ask for help. Grief counseling, also called bereavement counseling, can help you through this difficult time. The truth is that anyone suffering a major loss could probably benefit from speaking to a therapist. But some of the things we’ve heard.
Many of our clients say it was hard to come in for counseling, that they felt like they weren’t sure it would even help. However, the truth is that grief is a unique experience. Even if others around you are grieving, their relationship with that person was different than yours and their own style of grieving may look very different from your own. This may leave you feeling completely alone. A therapist can listen to your story, provide you support, and encourage you to look toward the future.
