What is Grief?
Grief is a natural emotion that follows the death of someone dear to you; and to one degree or another, it hurts. It is like an open wound that must heal. The ultimate goal of grief and mourning is to take you beyond your initial reactions to the loss. The therapeutic purpose of grief and mourning is to get you to the place where you can live with the loss in a healthy way. To do this, you have to make some necessary changes in your life.
You Are Not Alone
The death of a loved one is life's most painful events. Our reactions to death remain one of society's least understood and most "off-limit" topics for discussion. Oftentimes, grievers feel completely alone in dealing with their pain, loneliness, and isolation. While the experience of grief can be very isolating, we would like to help you take steps to counter the feelings of loneliness and disconnection. Should you need additional support, please don't hesitate to call us at (807) 547-6000. We will do our best to ease your bereavement and, if requested, provide a referral to a local grief counselor or therapist.
