Grief is often experienced after a loss in someone’s life, whether it is the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a marriage, or loss of a lifestyle. It is often associated with emotions such as sadness, anger, regret, guilt, numbness, or even relief. According to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, there are five stages to grief which include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Throughout the grieving process, a person does not necessarily complete each stage in order and can often go back and forth between stages. If grief is not processed, it can often lead to Depression, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Counseling allows a person to explore their grief including their thoughts or behaviors to allow them to return to an ideal level of functioning.
