Grief

Grief is a deep emotional response to loss that can take months to resolve. It also can re-experienced or worsened by the event’s anniversary or other emotional triggers.

It’s normal for the grieving process to take time and to progress through several stages. However, sometimes people do need help to recover from loss.

At Psychiatric Associates, our caring therapists help people manage their grief and start living again. Call (319) 356-6352 to schedule an appointment, or use our online Request an Appointment form.
