If you are experiencing any type of grief or loss, you probably feel like you’re going through a roller coaster of emotions, not to mention changes in behavior. Here are some examples of common – and completely normal – reactions to grief and loss:  

  • Shock
  • Anger
  • Disbelief
  • Sadness or depression
  • Confusion
  • Physical and mental exhaustion
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Appetite changes
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Uncontrollable crying
  • Numbness
  • Guilt
  • Loneliness
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Relief


Whether it’s the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or loss of a job, grief is a very personal journey and should be honored as such. But you don’t have to go through this pain alone. With grief counseling, you will be encouraged to express your thoughts and feelings openly and honestly in an understanding and supportive atmosphere. You may learn about the emotional, physical, social, practical, and spiritual impacts of grief as well as how to navigate the stages of grief that are common, and yet unique, to us all. Your grief counselor will help you to work through your symptoms so that you can learn to find happiness and meaning in life again.
