Do You Feel...

If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or someone you know, reaching out to the experts at Foundations can be a convenient and effective way to start addressing these challenges. The team at Foundations is ready to guide you through your journey toward healing and personal growth. Taking that first step to seek help can lead to significant positive changes in your life.

Persistent Sadness or Depression

If you often feel down, hopeless, or melancholic, it could be a sign of depression. Counseling can help you identify the root of these feelings and provide strategies to manage them.

Withdrawal from Social Activities

If you find yourself increasingly pulling away from friends, family, or activities you used to enjoy, this could be a sign of underlying issues that counseling might address.

Withdrawal from Social Activities

Losing interest in socializing or activities once enjoyed could indicate underlying issues. Online therapy provides a confidential setting to address these concerns.

Changes in Sleep or Appetite

Noticeable changes in sleeping patterns or appetite might signal mental health struggles, whether an increase or decrease. Counselors can help explore the root causes and offer guidance.

Feelings of Worthlessness or Guilt

Harboring negative thoughts about oneself or feeling excessive guilt can be debilitating. Therapy offers a path to challenge and change these negative self-perceptions.

Unexplained Physical Symptoms

Experiencing physical symptoms like headaches or stomach aches without a clear medical cause could be stress-related. Counseling can help identify stressors and reduce psychosomatic symptoms.

Difficulty Accepting the Loss

Struggling to come to terms with the reality of a loss is common. If someone finds themselves in denial or unable to accept that the loss has occurred, grief counseling can provide support in processing these feelings.

Intense Emotional Pain or Anguish

Experiencing acute emotional pain, such as feelings of emptiness, despair, or deep loneliness, is a strong indicator that someone might benefit from professional support to navigate these intense emotions.

Intrusive Thoughts or Memories

Being plagued by constant thoughts or memories of the deceased, to the point where it hampers daily functioning, suggests that grief and loss counseling could be beneficial.

Answers to Common Questions

What is grief and loss counseling?

Grief and loss counseling is a type of therapy that helps individuals cope with the emotional, psychological, and sometimes physical responses to loss, particularly the death of loved ones, but also other forms of loss.

How can grief counseling help me?

Grief counseling provides a supportive space to process your emotions, learn coping mechanisms, and work through the stages of grief in a healthy way. It can aid in understanding and accepting your loss, and eventually finding a way to move forward.

Is it normal to feel guilty after a loss?

Yes, feelings of guilt are a common part of the grieving process. Counseling can help you work through these feelings and understand them better.

What are the costs associated with counseling or therapy sessions at Foundations?

At Foundations, each counseling or therapy session costs $200, or you can opt for a double session at $360. We also provide additional savings through our Healing Journey Packages, which are prepaid sessions available in bundles of 5, 10, 15, or 20, offering discounts that increase with the number of sessions purchased.

Does Foundations accept Insurance?

Foundations will provide any necessary documentation for you to submit for reimbursement with your insurance company. This approach ensures greater privacy, avoids mandatory diagnoses, offers more therapist choices, and promotes tailored session lengths, facilitating a personalized therapeutic experience without external constraints or documentation shared with insurance companies.

What if I need to reschedule my counseling session?

There is no charge for any session cancelled at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.

Are you available in the evenings or on weekends?

Will I ever stop feeling this sad?

While grief is a unique experience for everyone, many people find that with time and support, the intensity of their sadness decreases and they are able to find joy and purpose in life again.

Can grief and loss counseling help if it’s been years since the loss?

Absolutely. Grief has no timeline, and counseling can be beneficial no matter how much time has passed since the loss occurred.

Do I have to talk about my loved one in counseling?

While talking about your loved one can be a part of the healing process, you won't be forced to discuss anything you're not comfortable with. Counseling is a collaborative process tailored to your comfort level.

How do I know if I need grief counseling?

If your grief is overwhelming, affecting your daily life, or if you're struggling to cope, it might be time to seek counseling. If you're uncertain, scheduling a consultation can be a helpful first step.
