Grief Counseling in Greeley and Fort Collins, Colorado
For those who have lost a loved one, it can be extremely difficult to heal and recover in order to move on with your life. For some people, the loss can continue to loom long after the person has passed away and the grieving period has ended. You may find yourself crying often, while sleeping too much or not enough. Oftentimes, feelings of guilt, anger and anxiety can take hold of your thoughts. For those who lost someone who was struggling with an illness it can be equally as painful even though the outcome was clear and there was time to prepare. Sometimes there is little to no time to prepare when we lose a loved one by way of suicide or accident which can leave us struggling to make sense of it. During times like these, it is easy to question the purpose of life and death and to ask yourself "Why?".
While losing a loved one can be a heart wrenching, isolating and deeply confusing experience, talking with a qualified grief counselor can help you to make sense of the event. During counseling sessions, you will have the opportunity to ask the questions that are running through your mind. It is also a place where you can discuss your feelings of anger about what happened. Oftentimes, there are feelings of misplaced guilt and through discussion with a grief counselor, these feelings can be sorted and resolved. Ultimately, through talking with a grief counselor, you will be able to put the event into perspective while allowing yourself to move on with your life.
Looking for a Grief Counseling Specialist in Greeley or Fort Collins, Colorado?
My experience as a grief counselor has grown over the years through training, and the amount of clients who have sought me out because of personal loss. Grief is typically a cycle that takes about a year to complete. Grief is experienced whether one has lost someone through death, or a relationship has ended. Grieving is healthy and healing and it is only when we allow ourselves to feel the grief and move through it that we are healed and can begin our lives again. It is a process of discovering who we are without that person, career or any other major loss in our lives.
