Frequently Asked Questions

Grief is an emotional response to loss. Either a death or missing or a beloved one.

  • Loss of a relationship
  • Loss of your health
  • Loss of your job
  • Loss of financial stability
  • Loss of a friendship
  • Loss of a pet
  • Loss of safety after a traumatic event
  • After a miscarriage or stillbirth
  • After selling your home 


The grieving process is different from person to person.  Everyone finds their way and works through their grief at a different pace. Some might feel better in weeks, while others take many months or years. 

There’s no timetable for when to seek help for your grief. However, it’s time to consider counseling any time you can’t move forward, you’re stuck in grief, can’t overcome the pain, or you stifle your feelings and aren’t grieving.

Everyone feel sad following a loss, but grief causes a wide range of emotions. You may experience:

  • Shock
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Regret
  • Disbelief
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hopelessness

All of these emotions can become so strong and long-lasting that you may need grief management to help you overcome and move forward.

About 10% of people experience prolonged grief, with deep emotions that lasts for years. Prolonged grief keeps you rooted in sadness and hopelessness, fosters a preoccupation with the person you lost, and stops you from enjoying happy memories.

Prolonged grief often doesn’t improve without grief management. Thrive Psychological Services offers compassionate, supportive counseling so you can return to the life you once enjoyed.

Your therapist honors your unique feelings and concerns. They focus on helping you work through overwhelming feelings and giving you ways to cope with the pain.


The goal of grief management isn’t to speed up grieving. Your therapist provides the support you need to experience your emotions and move forward at your own pace.


Grief management also helps people who can’t cope with grief and push their feelings down. But those feelings will rise to the surface in the future, leading to sudden and overwhelming emotions that you may not associate with your earlier loss. Getting therapy now prevents that potential problem.


If you need grief management, call Thrive Psychological Services or book an appointment online today.
