Grief/loss is a particularly special and delicate piece of the human experience and our understanding of mental health, as the process of grief/loss is universal, yet distinctly unique to each individual's felt experience. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. We all need space to allow grief to unfold in order to heal. We can discover your own unique, healthy and honest grieving process.
Anxiety is often a result of a lack of personal 'integration.' Each of us is made up of many parts, emotions and thoughts, and these can become overwhelming, confusing, and conflicting. In therapy we work to make sense of the roots of your anxiety, as you learn to tolerate, manage, and alleviate some of that discomfort through finding a real sense of wholeness and clarity within your true self.
