Bereavement refers specifically to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger, and the process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to what was lost, and other factors.
Insight Counseling has therapists trained specifically in grief theory. We also facilitate a pet loss and terminal illness grief support group, which meets the second and fourth Wednesday of every month.
