Grief doesn’t always hit you like a ton of bricks. Sometimes, you feel nothing or a sense of numbness after a major loss. You may go on as if nothing has happened, not fully realizing or accepting what has happened. Even if you feel overwhelmed by emotion, you may feel disconnected from the reason you feel that way. So, the first task of grief, and thus the first goal of grief counseling, is to help you understand with all your being that you’ve suffered a major loss. As a Grief Counselor, Melinda will lead you through what might be a very dark period in your life by sharing her knowledge and skills, and by letting you share your personal story.
