Oregon Counseling provides grief and loss support to those who have experienced any type of significant loss.

Loss caused by death, end of relationships, physical or emotional trauma, chronic pain, or onset of illness or injury can all result in tremendous grief and emotional pain. These losses have the potential to elicit existential difficulties, such as lack of control and reduced predictability about life. Such changes may diminish a person’s well being, hope for the future and ability to cope.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Everyone’s experience with loss is different and everyone grieves on their own timeline. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to go through it alone and without support.
