What is grief?
Grief is an intense emotional, spiritual, and physical experience that tends to follow a loss event or significant life change. Although culturally we tend to associate grief most commonly with things like death and divorce, many experts believe that you can grieve any major change or deviation from what was “normal” before. This includes the changes that our culture sees as being largely positive, like weddings, moves, and retirement. Even in these situations, the “old” way of life is gone permanently, and despite the fact that these may have been intended and anticipated changes, they often do trigger grief responses and adjustment difficulties.

How To Find A Therapist
By: Chloe Gabrielle Harper, Clinical Intern at JCAC
A question that is pretty common is “How Do I Find A Therapist?”. You are sitting in your bed and you realize that it is time to make a change, so you talk to your friend and he or she tells you maybe you need a therapist. You do a wild google search and words come up like “mental health counselor”, “clinical counselor”, “mental health technician”, “telehealth mental professional”, “psychiatrist”, and “psychologist”, and the list continues!
