Grief & Loss Counselors

Grief is a powerful emotion. Grief can present itself in many different ways including heartache, apathy, numbness, a sense of fragility, frequent crying, and
anxiety. It can be isolating and intense.

Especially with the impact of COVID and our new normal as we move forward, grief can be more than just the loss of someone you care for, but the loss of friendships, activities, physical touch, and the impact that the pandemic has had on all of us.

With the amount of cases and deaths in the last year, the amount of those that haven’t experienced loss from COVID grows smaller every day. While you may
have had everything together a year ago, at the start of quarantine, 6 months ago, or even 3 months ago, the extent of COVID has changed all of us. It’s okay to let yourself work through these changes with the help of a therapist. If there’s ever been a time to seek help, a global pandemic is easily one. Even if grief is a small portion of your goals, working with a Grief Specialist can help you come to terms with, process, and help you to move forward with your life.

At Silver Lake Psychology, we understand the complex nature of grief—whether it’s due to the loss of a loved one, experiencing traumatic grief, or grappling with prolonged grief disorder.
