“Grief is a most peculiar thing; we’re so helpless in the face of it. It’s like a window that will simply open of its own accord. The room grows cold, and we can do nothing but shiver. But it opens a little less each time, and a little less; and one day we wonder what has become of it.”
― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Grief is the natural and normal response to a significant loss. Those of us who have lived through the pain of a great loss know that the experience of grief can be one of the most difficult experiences of our lives. In Dr. Piper Walsh’s grief counseling Orange County individuals and families learn to navigate the strange terrain that is the grief process, and find their way through this natural process and on to embracing life after loss.
The grief associated with death is familiar to most people, but individuals grieve in connection with a variety of losses throughout their lives. We may experience grief due to the loss of a job, the loss of our health or the end of a significant relationship. Dr. Walsh’s Orange County grief counseling practice is here to help us through the process.

The grief process affects us in a variety of ways. We may be affected physically in addition to the mental and emotional response. There are often new and strange feelings, often not felt before, that are associated with the loss. In grieving we may experience changes in the way we interact with others and in the way we view ourselves. In Orange County grief counseling is part of Dr. Walsh’s practice. Dr. Walsh is experienced in the process of grief as well as its potential effects it can have on our day to day lives.

There is no “normal” timetable for the grieving process. It takes the time it takes. With counseling we all are able to move on in our own time. “Moving on” doesn’t mean that we forget, or that we erase any part of the past. In Orange County grief counseling with Dr. Walsh enables us to transcend feelings of disappointment, sorrow and injustice so they are no longer blocking our growth and instead become a part of the building blocks on which we build our future.
