Grief counseling to help cope with a significant loss is available through South Bay Counseling LCSW PC, and we’re here to help you throughout your struggle. Grief counseling (otherwise known as bereavement counseling) is a form of psychotherapy primarily utilized for people who have experienced a sudden loss in their lives such as a death of a family member or loved one, being fired from a job, or a divorce that is causing intense grief. Grief involves a wide range of emotions including feeling sad, anxious, angry, lonely, guilty, relieved, isolated, confused, or even numb to the situation. It is normal for everyone to experience moments of grief in their life; not everyone requires dedicated grief counseling. It is when the feelings of grief start to impair a person’s ability to function in life, including interfering with their daily activities and causing relationship problems, that counseling is recommended and encouraged to help get back on the right path.
At South Bay Counseling LCSW PC, our staff is trained to help children, adolescents, and adults go through the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance) in a healthy and constructive manner. Our goal is to help you reach the stage of acceptance and peace so you can master this trying period in your life.
