Grief

Grief is the natural response of the mind and body to a loss. The loss of a loved one is usually what comes to mind when we think of grief, but people may also grieve other major losses.

 

Since grief is a natural process, it is not considered a mental disorder. However, sometimes people fail or are not allowed to griefphotoprocess the associated feelings. When this occurs, the unresolved feelings often present as other kinds of problems later.

 

Sometimes a loss is traumatic. In such cases, EMDR, a trauma therapy, is helpful.

 

The kind of services we offer at Bill Jacobs LPCC will help people pass through the grieving process in a healthy manner.

 

We also work with people who are stuck in the grieving process.
