Starting Grief counseling

What is Grief counseling?

Grief counseling helps people grieve difficult losses including the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or the end of a relationship. It helps people navigate their grief process and eventually accept, understand, and move forward from their loss. Grief counselors have specific experience, training, and skills that enable them to best-support grieving individuals.

How does Grief counseling work?

Grief counseling isn't one-size-fits-all, but it involves sharing about your loss and then working with your counselor to acknowledge and accept your new reality in its wake. Your Thriveworks grief counselor will design your treatment plan around your unique needs and goals for therapy, applying the counseling techniques that best support them. It may take place as individual-counseling or a form of group therapy such as Family therapy.

Is Grief counseling conducted in person or online?

Grief counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Grief counseling last?

For many, grief counseling lasts for about 6 months. For others, it may last shorter or longer, depending on the severity of their loss and their grief.

Need more help deciding?

When you think about grief, what or whom do you think of? Maybe it’s your grandmother, who passed of old age when you were in 4th grade. Or, maybe it’s your English teacher from high school who died unexpectedly in a car accident. Or, perhaps it’s your father who is still very much alive but getting older and more fragile every day. Grief is an unavoidable side effect of loss. And in much the same way, loss is an unavoidable and unfortunate part of life.

“Grief, I’ve learned, is just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.” –Anonymous

Fortunately, when you are forced to face grief and loss, there are caring professionals who can offer you crucial guidance and support. These professionals are called grief counselors and they have skills, training, and experience specific to helping people just like you process their loss.

If you’ve recently lost a beloved family member, friend, mentor, pet, or another important individual in your life, consider working with a grief counselor at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL. Not only are our counselors some of the best mental health professionals in the area, but they truly care about you and they want to help you through your loss. To schedule your grief counseling appointment at Thriveworks Jacksonville, FL (West), just call (904) 567-7203.

What Stage of Grief Am I In?

Every single person’s grief process is different. Some people deny the reality of their loss before eventually accepting it; others go back and forth between a range of difficult emotions including sadness, anger, and regret. That said, there are several widely recognized stages of grief that many of us can attest to. These include:

  1. Denial: We referred to this stage above. Many people struggle to accept that the individual is really gone and they initially deny this reality.
  2. Anger: This stage is straightforward. A lot of us feel angry after finding out about the loss of a friend or family member, and as a result, we might lash out in anger at those around us.
  3. Bargaining: “If only…” “I should have…” These are a couple phrases someone might mutter in the bargaining stage. We regret what we did or didn’t say or do.
  4. Depression: This next stage is characterized by a state of despair and hopelessness. We need all of the support we can get during this stage of grief.
  5. Acceptance: Finally, acceptance. In this last stage, we accept that our loved one is no longer physically with us and we begin to move forward.

Keep in mind that everyone’s experience in grief is different. You might go through the above stages in the order they’re listed. Or, you might only experience several of the stages listed above. In any case, it’s important that you have someone you trust to talk to about your feelings, someone who can offer you support during this most difficult chapter of life. A grief counselor at Thriveworks Jacksonville (West) can provide you with that help and support. If you’ve just lost a loved one and you’re struggling to process this loss or return to your life, reach out to us today.

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.
