Complicated Grief



Complicated Grief
and the Types and Means of Loss

No two losses are truly alike even though they may bear similarities. Different types of loss creates different responses from grieving people. The type of loss and how it came about (the “means”) can significantly impact our journey through grief. Many losses create profound impacts on our lives and challenge our ability to cope.


But, there is hope. There is healing.

At Stillwaters, we have the greatest respect for each person’s unique experience of loss. We tailor our work to each client’s very specific and unique needs. We honor the meaning and depth of loss, and work to help clients integrate it into their lives in ways that promotes reconciliation and peace.  This service very helpful in the reconciliation of Normal Grief.  However, this kind of treatment is essential in most all cases of complicated grief.
