Grief Therapy: Grief comes in many shapes and sizes. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to the grieving process. Grief is the series of emotions that are passed, or cycled, through after a loss is realized.

As a result, people find themselves unexpectedly courting the sorrow, anger and other emotions associated with grief at varying times in their life. Confused and even ashamed, they may attempt to hide or avoid these emotions, pushing them inward rather than letting them out. Destructive and devastating repercussions can follow. Yet all of this can be avoided, if we only recognize that there are all kinds of grief..
