Grief and Loss Q & A

What are grief and loss?

Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one, relationship, job, or another important part of your life. You may also experience feelings of grief due to a separation, such as when a child leaves for college, or you live far away from family and friends.

As a result of grief, you may experience negative thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that interfere with your quality of life. The loss of something significant in your life can contribute to the development of mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


When should I seek treatment for grief and loss?

While everyone grieves in their own way and time, you may benefit from professional help if you find yourself overwhelmed by symptoms of grief.

Common reactions to grief include:

  • Anger
  • Denial
  • Distress
  • Anxiety
  • Sadness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Disruption of sleep

While it’s normal to experience these feelings soon after the traumatic event or loss of a loved one, it’s important that you ask for help if you aren’t able to stay in control of your emotions.

While it can be difficult to seek help during such a distressing time, the team at The Transformation Center offers compassionate care and personalized attention to help you cope with your grief.

The team at The Transformation Center offers customized care plans to help you address your loss and grief in a judgment-free, caring environment.

The providers take a holistic approach to help you cope with the situation at hand and reduce your risk for long-term health complications, self-harm, addiction, and suicidal thoughts or actions.

You may benefit from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that’s available to address the side effects of trauma and grief.

Other therapeutic options for coping with grief and loss include:

  • Yoga
