Losing someone you love to divorce, or death takes a toll on your body – physically and mentally. It’s exhausting. Although most people heal with time, others struggle to carry on without their loved ones in their life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Jesus, himself, wept when He was told that His good friend Lazarus was dead. The Son of God knew He was going to raise Lazarus from the dead, but the momentary loss was still painful.
At Westlake Christian Counseling in California, we are confident in our faith and know that one day we will see our Christian brothers and sisters again. It is through this belief, coupled with our expertise in the psychological sciences and techniques, that we can help other Christians through their struggles with grief.
We incorporate proven methods into your personalized mental health care plan to help you come to terms with the loss and move forward with your life. We were not created to stay “stuck” in one season of life, but to find meaning and purpose in every season.
We have the tools to assist you in overcoming:
- The overwhelming sensations of loneliness, hopelessness, anxiety, and depression
- The persistent feeling that you have a hole in your heart (emotional numbness)
- Negative and intrusive thoughts about loss, death, and/or suicide
- Self-destructive behaviors as ways to cope with the loss
- The stages of grief
We work with clients who are also showing signs of complicated grief and are unable to move past the pain of loss to the extent that grief now affects every area of their life.
Healing from grief will take time but having a support system behind you can mean all the difference in the world. You are not alone. At Westlake Christian Counseling, we offer private individual sessions or group therapy sessions with a professional and licensed therapist.
