Most people will experience loss at some point in their lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss whether this be the passing of a loved one, a feeling of certainty, or even a transition such as a career, divorce, or empty nest. More specifically, bereavement is a type of grief involving the death of a loved one. It can truly ache one’s soul.
Bereavement and grief encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger. The process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another. It often depends on a person’s background, beliefs, and relationship to what is lost. So when it comes to the invitation for us to walk alongside others in grief, we believe in tailoring that walk to specifically where that individual may be.
- Grief is a natural, healthy reaction to loss.
- Grief is universal and unique.
- Grief has no age limits.
- Grief is a process, not an event.
- Grief does not follow a timeline or sequence.
- Grief support should be tailored to each individual’s needs.
It is a belief of ours, that grief is an expression of love. Whether that love be tied to a career, a pet, or a family member, it is valid and worth feeling. We want to help you navigate the terrain of that loss, and believe we can support you on the road to healing and hope.
It has once been said, there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. If you desire to voice that story, honor the loss that you are experiencing, we would be honored to listen, and delve deeper into the legacy of what has been lost.
