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.

Richmond Grief Counseling – Loss, Mourning, Bereavement

Where do you go when you’ve lost someone or something meaningful in your life? Who do you turn to for encouragement and support during times of great loss? Unfortunately, for many who have experienced loss and find themselves suffering from grief, knowing who to turn to isn’t always as easy as they thought.

That’s why Thriveworks Grief Therapy is here. We understand that grief often feels like the weight of the world is crushing you. We know that everyone experiences some form of grief during their lives. We can help you cope during this difficult time and find happiness and meaning in your life once again.

What Causes Grief?

There are many life events that can cause grief:

  • The death of a loved one (the most common)
  • The death of a treasured pet
  • Chronic health problems
  • An accident that leads to a temporary or permanent disability
  • Loss of independence
  • The end of a relationship
  • Loss of employment
  • Natural disasters

What Are the Signs of Grief?

Grief affects each of us differently. While one person may respond to loss and bereavement showing few, if any, external symptoms, others may demonstrate outward signs that often indicate that they are struggling with grief. Here are just a few:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Outbursts of anger
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Increased anxiety and panic
  • Depression
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • The need to repeat stories of a loved one who has died
  • Withdrawal or isolation from others
  • Sudden episodes of crying or sadness

If you can relate to these things, you may be struggling with grief. Don’t struggle alone another day. Let our caring grief counselors help you through the healing process. We can help you find hope and healing from the pain of loss. We will encourage and support you as we work together to develop coping skills to get you back on track.

My experience has been somewhat less desiring. My ongoing sessions with the counselor is not as expected. It’s not engaging and oftentimes we are sitting in silence. I even asked if there was an ending game plan so we know where we are working towards and I didn’t get an answer.

Ashley Crouch has been been a blessing to me over the past year. I cannot begin to thank her enough for how she has impacted my life. She is very effective, professional, and respectful. My quality of life has improved by leaps and bounds and I'm forever grateful. I live in a rural area with few counseling options, so online counseling was a Godsend, and so was Ashley!

I’ve been seeing Ashley for about a month now at Thriveworks and I couldn’t be happier. She really helped me get back to person I use to be. I’ve had a rough couple years and she has me well on my way to a better me.
