Emotional Support

Everyone experiences and expresses grief differently, often shaped by how their culture honors the process. It is not uncommon for a person to withdraw from their friends and family and feel helpless. Counseling helps people move through grief to health and resolution. Grief counseling helps to facilitate the expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including sadness, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, isolation, confusion, or numbness.

Willis-Knighton Cancer Center offers referrals and connections to individual, family, group, grief, and spiritual counseling. Support groups available at the Cancer Center include General Cancer Support Group and Blood Cancer Support Group.
