Grief and Loss

Loss is an inevitable part of life. Grief is a natural part of the healing process. The reasons for grief are many, such as the death of a loved one, a divorce or loss of a relationship, the loss of health, the death of a beloved pet, the loss of a job or financial security, the loss of youth, or even the loss of a long-held dream. Grief is deeply personal and can be one of life's most difficult challenges.

The length of time needed to mourn is different for each individual. There is no predictable schedule. Time and support are needed, yet too frequently in our culture- neither are available, and emotions become repressed. This is especially true for children who have lost a significant loved one.

STAR takes special time and care to provide a supportive environment to heal losses, be they long ago and still unresolved, or current. From this experience, you begin to understand that what you are feeling is a natural way of finding acceptance and healing. Then, an unburdening occurs which releases energy and gives you the freedom to move forward in your life.
