Grief, Loss, and Recovery
Sadly, many individuals who have lost their spouses may experience various emotional challenges, including clinical depression and anxiety, within the first year of their bereavement. A recent study conducted before the peak of the pandemic, courtesy of Amerispeak and WebMD, indicated that 57% of people had mourned the loss of someone dear to them in the past three years. It’s well-known that the passing of a loved one can be an incredibly distressing experience, leading to a profound emotional crisis–sometimes even addiction. We help in estate matters, but others are always available to help overcome some of this grief.

Center for Loss & Life Transition
Founded in 1984 by Dr. Alan Wolfelt, the Center for Loss and Life Transition is dedicated to “companioning” grieving people as they mourn significant transitions and losses that transform their lives. We help mourners, by walking with them in their unique life journeys, and both professional and lay caregivers, by serving as an educational resource and professional forum.
