Unable to return to work, school, or a normal level of functioning in life?
Do you have feelings of guilt?
Are people around you saying you should "be over it by now?"
The truth is, there isn't a set timeline or structure to grief. Everyone's circumstances are unique and everyone's grief is their own. The grief of a loved one can send us into severe and long lasting states of despair and depression.
Resolve can help.
Resolve specializes in grief counseling. Owner/Counselor James McMillian, LPC, started his counseling career in a grief setting, interning for a year at Solace House in Kansas City. Here, James worked with children, teens, and adults through a variety of grief situations, including loss of a child, sibling, and parent, and well as losses through suicide, accidental death, long term illness, and homicide.
You are not alone.
We are here to walk with you through this dark time. At Resolve, we don't judge, place timelines, or set expectations to your grief. Your grief experience is a deeply personal one, just as your relationship with your loved one. While this is a very personal experience, you don't have to suffer it alone.
There is hope.
It doesn't feel like it now, but there is hope and things can get better. The goal of grief therapy is not to "get over" the loss, but to incorporate it into your life in a way that you can find a new normal, a new way of functioning in life amidst the terrible loss. As you move forward, the pain will lessen, but that doesn't mean you love your lost one any less. You will gradually move forward and allow happiness, little by little, to become a part of your life again.
