Grief Services

Are you struggling with grief?

Grief is an individual reaction to loss.  Grief can accompany life’s changes. It may come with the death of a loved one, separation, or divorce. It may also come with the loss of one’s good health, job, or pet. Grief is universal and can be challenging. Each person experiences and expresses grief in a unique way. The intensity of grief also varies.

The feelings associated with grief may include loneliness, anger, and guilt. These feelings can be overwhelming and difficult to endure. Grief can leave a person unable to sleep or meet daily responsibilities. Unprocessed grief can also affect personal and business relationships.

What does emoWellness do to support persons experiencing grief?

Our primary function is to help grievers with emotional growth and grief symptom reduction. The therapist also helps grievers recognize destructive patterns that may be keeping them from healing. While flexibility and creativity are sometimes necessary during the healing process, it should also be understood that symptoms of grief may appear to be getting worse at first. Unresolved feelings may surface before healing can take place.

The therapist’s goal is to provide you with safe care. With your permission, the therapist may share your information with other healthcare providers. Contact emoWellness today to set up a 30-minute free consultation to see if working together will be a good fit for your growth.

How do grief groups work?

Grief groups help you express feelings and find hope and meaning in life after a loss. Each group will take place in a secure setting and runs for eight weeks. Group participants must be at least 18 years of age.

Your membership in a grief group depends on the number of available spaces and your responses on a group readiness questionnaire. Other evidence-based assessments may be used to determine group and individual needs prior to the start of the group. Assessments may also be administrated at various times throughout one’s care at emoWellness. Group expectations will be shared with all members.   

Each group session lasts ninety minutes. The group is at capacity with six participants. Once the groups start, new members cannot join. The therapist works to help group members process feelings and will also stay in tune with group interactions. Group members can connect and grow with others experiencing similar challenges. Knowing that you are not alone can bring about a sense of comfort with a healthy transformation.

Which is better, a grief group or one-on-one grief support?

Group therapy is not for everyone. If you are experiencing normal grief better known as uncomplicated grief and believe you need support and privacy, you can get one-on-one help at emoWellness. Complicated grief, referred to as Prolonged Grief, will require specialized interventions that may increase the cost and time in therapy.
