Amelia SwansonClinical Psychologist, PhD
I have a warm, compassionate and direct approach and collaborate with patients using research-backed approaches (CBT, ACT, mindfulness).
Grief and loss are a part of the human condition. Grief is typically considered to be brought on by the death of a loved one, but can also be triggered by any significant life-altering loss (such as a divorce or the loss of a job). Grief is a natural response to loss, but that doesn’t make it easy to deal with. Symptoms of grief may include sadness, loneliness, anger, denial, depression and a myriad of other thoughts and feelings. There is no “normal” amount of time for grief to pass, but if you find that your grief is not improving over time or that it is interfering with your everyday life, you may want to consider seeking professional help. A qualified grief counselor can help you to cope with the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s grief experts today.
I work with folks who, formally or informally, support others and find themselves needing tools to care for themselves. Perhaps you are another mental health provider, a first responder, a guardian, a leader, a solid friend, or an advocate. You too may be experiencing past traumas and overwhelming stresses, unhelpful relational patterns, current unrealistic expectations of self, or feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. You too deserve a teammate on your adventure towards relief and joy.
