Grief is at the heart of so many major life experiences, especially those you have little or no control over, as with a miscarriage/pregnancy loss, infertility/secondary infertility, loss of a loved one & birth trauma/not having the birth you wanted or expected.
Some of the grief symptoms you may currently be experiencing can include feeling shocked and angry about what happened, feeling numb and disconnected from the people and world around you, and feeling exhausted just going through the motions of your day, like you are slowly moving through a thick, dense fog. You may also feel overcome with sadness, to the point where you do not want to get out of bed and face the day in front of you, feel an aching pain throughout your entire body, and feel anxious about your future and where to go from here.
If you are a woman who has experienced a miscarriage/pregnancy loss, I understand what you are going through, as I have been there too. You want a therapist who truly gets it, so you don’t have to spend time explaining just how deep your heartache goes. I will be here to listen, empathize and support you during this very difficult time in your life. I will hold hope for you that things will get better in the future, after you work though the pain and grief associated with this loss.
During your therapy sessions, you will have a safe and supportive space to grieve the way you need to grieve. We’ll focus on your feelings and emotions, and your wants and needs, now as well as in the future. We’ll also come up with some coping strategies to help you get through this hard time. These may include listening to guided meditations, journaling, spending time outdoors and connecting with people who have experienced a similar loss in their life, to name a few.
My hope for you is that by doing the hard work of grieving now and working through the emotional pain that comes with it, when you start to come out of the grief of fog, you’ll be able to find your joy in life once again.
