Chronic Illness And Bereavement in Burbank, CA
Losing loved ones or facing long-term illnesses or medical conditions in oneself or a family member or friend can cause a great deal of sadness, anger, denial or confusion. All of this is normal. However, when it starts to negatively impact how you are functioning on a day to day level,or affecting your relationships with those in your life, it is time to get professional help or support. I have worked with many, many individuals trying to cope with their grief over the loss of their own health or the loss of someone dear to them in their lives. Easy panaceas are not necessarily helpful. I offer a very individualized approach to these issues of mortality....in your own life or because of the loss of someone close to you. You don't have to "tough it out" on your own. I can help you manage the many emotions that you may be experiencing. The goal is not to eliminate your feelings of loss or fear...but to build the strength to manage them, understand them, build resilience and move forward. There is no specific time frame for this process. Each individual works through grief and bereavement, fear and loss, at their own pace and in their own way.
This is NOT an easy journey....but I can help you with the journey to acceptance and recognition of what needs to be done to allow you to live a freer life not ruled by grief. anger or fear. Call me. I can help.
