Grief Counseling in Jacksonville, FL—Grief and Loss Counselors

Grief Counseling in Jacksonville, FL—Grief and Loss Counselors

Experiencing the loss of a loved one can be deeply painful. While some people are lucky enough not to have this experience until their later life, we all must endure the loss of family members and friends at some point in our lives. And whenever that may be, it’s important that we grieve well, process our emotions properly, and find a way to move forward with our lives.

“At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember them.” –Sylvan Kamans and Rabbi Jack Reimer

The problem is that many of us are ill-equipped to handle all that comes with grief and loss. In fact, even those who are typically in control of their emotions struggle during this most difficult time. Why? Because grief can look like sadness, anger, regret, and confusion—sometimes, even all at once. It can also make living your normal life hard, from getting out of bed in the morning to focusing at work. If you find that your loss is making it difficult for you to resume your day to day life, it’s important that you reach out for help.

If you are in the Jacksonville, FL area and you recently lost a loved one, consider working with a grief counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale. We have mental health professionals who specialize in helping their clients to grieve properly, process their emotions, and get back to a normal life after experiencing a tough loss. You can schedule your grief counseling appointment today by calling (904) 507-6712. We are here to help.

What Is Grief? How Am I Supposed to Process My Loss?

When we think of grief, we think of sadness. But sadness isn’t the only emotion we experience when we grieve. The truth is that we can experience a range of emotions, some of which we listed above, including anger, regret, confusion, resentment, and more. You might even go from one emotion to the next as you move through your grief process.

The specific grief process is not the same for every person. That said, we do often move through five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Whatever your grief process looks like, it’s important that you don’t push your feelings down. Instead, allow yourself to experience these emotions—doing so will help you heal. We know this is easier said than done. If you are struggling, reach out to Thriveworks Jacksonville to work with a grief counselor.

What Can I Expect from Grief Counseling? How Can It Help?

Thriveworks Jacksonville knows that grieving is a highly personal process, and that it is a difficult process for the majority of people. Some of the clients we see are completely overwhelmed with anger, sadness, or resentment. Others feel relieved—because the loved one lost isn’t suffering anymore. Your grief counselor will analyze your specific reaction and needs. Then, they’ll design counseling to best help you through the grief process. In addition, they will help you picture and live your life now that your loved one is no longer physically here.

Here at Thriveworks Jacksonville, our grief counselors will consider your religion as well as your culture, to best design treatment and help you through your loss. They’ll keep these ever-important factors in mind during each session. And their main goal will always remain: to get you to a happy, healthy place again.
