What is grief?

Grief is a natural reaction to loss. You can experience intense sadness and other emotions after losing a loved one, a job, or a relationship. Those who receive a terminal diagnosis may also experience immense grief for their situation.

While everyone grieves in their own time and way, some people may be overcome with their emotions after a loss. Overwhelming feelings can disrupt your daily routine and negatively affect your ability to stay on top of your responsibilities. 

Pure Psychiatry of Michigan provides comprehensive grief counseling services to help you better cope with grief and a deep sense of loss.
