These are some common psychological difficulties in the area of grief and loss with which I have worked and may be able to help you cope. They are briefly described here but not meant to be used as a diagnostic tool.


When a person we have been close to dies, it is normal to feel grief- but we can also feel grief at the loss of a relationship, a job, or other significant situations.

Complicated Grief- when the period of grief extends beyond a few months, it is considered "complicated grief".

Children are not immune to feelings of grief--at the loss of a parent, grandparent or even a pet.
