Grief Counseling Q & A

What is grief?

Grief refers to the emotional turmoil brought on by loss. You may experience grief after the death of a loved one (even a pet) or the end of a relationship. 

Grief may include a range of emotions from sadness to guilt to anger. These feelings may be surprising, confusing, and painful. 

How you deal with your grief may vary. Some people find comfort in sharing their feelings, while others may prefer to deal with them internally.

There’s no right or wrong way to grieve. However, the process can be difficult and complicated. Self-care, social support, and doing things you enjoy are essential to the recovery process. 

When should I seek grief counseling?

Some people can manage their grief and loss on their own. However, grief counseling benefits anyone struggling with loss. 

As noted, grief is a complicated process that involves many emotions. Partaking in grief counseling may help you understand these emotions and feelings. It may also prevent the onset of other mental health conditions triggered by your loss, such as depression or anxiety. 

Whether your loss is recent or was years ago, Dennis can provide the guidance and tools you need to move on from your grief and live your life. 

What can I expect during grief counseling?

When you come in for grief counseling at Adonai Counseling & Consulting, PLLC, Dennis works one-on-one with you to develop a personalized plan specific to your needs. His goal isn’t to make you forget about your loss or change who you are, but to provide the support you need as you deal with the pain from your loss.

Your grief counseling may include individual counseling or group therapy.

What are the benefits of grief counseling?

Grief counseling offers many benefits to your emotional and mental well-being. When working with Dennis, his goal is to help you:

  • Understand and accept the reality of your loss
  • Identify and manage areas of trauma from the loss
  • Freely and openly talk about your loss
  • Learn how to express your grieving emotions openly
  • Overcome feelings of guilt
  • Manage your life without your loved one
  • Develop a support system


Everyone deals with loss at some point throughout their life. Grief counseling provides the tools and guidance you need to understand the emotions that come with loss.
