If you’ve experienced a loss—the death of a loved one, miscarriage or infant loss, or changes due to illness or aging—you may feel overwhelmed, stuck, hopeless, or simply numb. Right now it may be difficult to imagine a version of life without the pain or sadness you feel today, and I want you to know that’s okay. Grief is not something to get “over” (despite what society may say); rather, it is something to move through. It may feel like those around you are just getting on with life, while your world has changed forever. Therapy is a place where you can freely express yourself and what this journey is like for you, step by step.

As a therapist specializing in grief & loss, I understand that you may not be able to share what’s going on with those closest to you without feeling like a “burden” or know how to manage those waves of grief that seem to come out of nowhere.
Have you recently experienced the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage or relationship, or a significant life transition that has you wondering how life will ever feel normal again? Grief shows up in many ways in life, and it looks different for everyone. But one thing is always true: grief changes us. Maybe you’re in survival mode: fighting just to stay above water in the day to day. Or perhaps you feel like you don’t recognize yourself: more angry, less motivated, or experiencing emotions that feel completely foreign. Your grief may be so overwhelming that you don’t even know what you feel.

When our relationships become strained, our holistic health suffers. When anxious thoughts continually flood our brains, it feels impossible to truly enjoy life.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Gig Harbor grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Gig Harbor.
