loss & grief - Beyond CBT: Elizabeth Dear, MFT, LCADC

Loss and Grief

So much that causes disruption in our lives is due to loss of one kind or another. Finding the ground on which to stand to be able to endure and accept loss is one of life’s most difficult challenges. In our busy modern lives, losses often accumulate because we are too busy to allow in the sadness and anger that loss naturally brings. Grief work requires leaning on others for understanding and support and taking time to feel the emotions caused by loss. Each person’s passage through grief is a little different. Entering therapy sets aside a time and creates a space for doing this difficult work. I believe we are capable of healing from tremendous loss if given enough support and a way to reconnect to a meaningful life. I would welcome the opportunity to accompany you in your grief journey.
