Grief and Bereavement Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Knoxville

If it is unexpected, the shock of life changing so dramatically in an instant can be totally overwhelming.  It can take weeks, months, even years, to fully recover.  Even if the loss of a loved one is at the end of a long illness, the grief can be too much to bear.  A grieving process is normal after any loss, but if it is prolonged or severe, an experienced grief counselor may be needed.

In this life, we will all experience death.  Even though it is an absolute guarantee, we are almost never fully prepared when it happens to someone we love.  The loss of a spouse, a parent, a child, a friend, a sibling, even a pet, is one of the major stressors in life.  There are many signs that grief is becoming overwhelming.  Being unable to go about your daily activities, becoming reclusive from friends and family, replaying the events surrounding the death obsessively; all of these things are signs that the grieving process has stalled.  It is also common for unhealthy behaviors to begin as a result of grief.  Those that struggled with addictions in the past may be likely to relapse.  Self-medicating with unhealthy substances is also common to try and find relief from the pain and sadness.

You don’t have to do it alone.

Whether you are trying to get help for a loved one that is dealing with a loss, or if you need help for yourself, you have come to the right place.  When you conducted the search that brought you to this page, you were presented with many choices for counseling.  When you choose Thriveworks, you can rest assured that you have placed your trust in experienced professionals.  We have licensed grief counselors and therapists that are trained and experienced in dealing with a wide variety of situations.  We are ready to put our expertise to work for you.
