Therapists Specializing in Loss, Grief, And Bereavement in New York
Loss is a natural, yet difficult and painful, part of life. In most cases, grief is the normal and healthy feeling of anguish you experience in reaction to an emotionally significant loss, such as the death of a loved one. While each person’s grief is different, it often involves symptoms of common mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety. You may feel irritable or numb, blame yourself, and worry about your own future. You might also experience difficulty concentrating or sleeping and lose interest in activities that you previously enjoyed. The experience of loss may be an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean that grieving is easy. Symptoms of grief can vary in intensity and come and go – often when you least expect it.
There is no set timeframe or “normal” way to grieve; in fact, we all respond differently to loss. However, when feelings of grief remain intense and last for a long time after a loss, it’s important to seek help. While grief itself is not a mental illness, a diagnosis of a mental health condition (such as adjustment disorder, complicated grief, depression, or anxiety) may be warranted by your symptoms. If you find yourself struggling to cope following a loss, you could benefit from working with one of the following therapists with a specialization in grief. Many different therapy modalities can be helpful, enabling you to process your grief while also learning new ways to cope and build a meaningful life following a loss.
