At some point in our lives we will all experience grief and loss. The experience of losing a loved one can be indescribable. Grief is a process that is different for everyone and for some the circumstances surrounding the loss are particularly difficult to handle. You may find it hard to function as you did before. Counseling can help the grieving individual find healthy ways to manage the process.
