There’s No Shame in Grieving

Grieving is not a weakness. Indeed, grieving can help people become stronger and healthier. It can enable you to process powerful emotions that could otherwise prove disruptive in life. That said, processing grief is no easy task, and it helps to have a guide who can assist you on your journey.

Grief often contributes to various other issues. For example, you may suffer depression after losing a spouse or child. In turn, you may be struggling to sleep, and as a result, you might be chronically tired and irritable. This could lead to issues at work or in the home.

Love comes with prices, and grief is among them. If you’re struggling to move on after a tragedy, it’s because you lost someone very important to you. Certainly, you don’t have to forget about or ignore your lost loved ones, but by overcoming your grief, you can honor their memory.

GY Counseling, LLC offers grief counseling for folks throughout Maryland, including Millersville, Rockville, Silver Spring, and Columbia.

The Many Facets of Grief

A grief counselor/therapist can provide the support needed to process grief. They can help you understand why grieving is important and why you need to give yourself permission to grieve. A grief therapist can also teach you a variety of coping mechanisms and techniques that will make it easier to regulate your emotions. Crucially, the goal is to process painful emotions, not cover them up.

Grief counselors/therapists have a diverse toolbox. The best counselors always tailor treatment plans to the individual and no two processes are the same. Some popular and powerful techniques include:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Harnesses rapid eye movements to help process powerful emotions.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A type of talk therapy that can help you change how you behave and think.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Another type of talk therapy that helps people process extremely powerful emotions by combining opposite thoughts.
