Grief Counseling Q & A

What is grief?

Grief is the emotional suffering and sadness you experience following a loss. Different types of loss can trigger grief. For example, you could lose a loved one, a beloved pet, a relationship, or even your career. 

However, indirect loss can also trigger grief. Dr. Liner helps many people cope with their feelings of loss when they go through a significant life change like graduating from college or moving away from home. When your perception of yourself changes, you can mourn the loss of who you used to be. 

Grief can be overwhelming, causing intrusive and distressing symptoms that interfere with your physical health and your ability to function in your daily life. Everyone responds to loss differently and you shouldn’t be ashamed of your feelings.

What is grief counseling?

Grief counseling is a type of psychotherapy that helps you explore and resolve your feelings of loss and bereavement and learn to cope with them, reducing the disruption to your life. 

At Flux Psychology, Dr. Liner provides personalized grief counseling to help you recover from grief and find relief from your symptoms and distressing feelings. 

Recovering from grief is often complicated as loss can trigger a variety of emotions, ranging from sadness and regret to guilt and anger. 

Dr. Liner gives you the space to explore and express any and all feelings and thoughts included in your grief. She helps you develop strategies to express your feelings so they no longer interfere with your quality of life.
