"My grief included anger, irritability, sleeplessness, not running fire calls, not spending time at the fire house, time off work, therapy, and medication. The hardest part of reaching out for help is understanding and admitting you have an issue. People are afraid it will make people see them as weak. It doesn’t make people weak to ask for help, it takes courage to ask for help and tell somebody that you don’t know how to handle what is going on. Don’t keep it all bundled up inside. You need to tell somebody that understands and knows how to help."

Patient Review

Featured in The New York Times

“People don’t feel like they have the right to grieve,” said Lisa S. Zoll, a licensed clinical social worker in Lemoyne, Pa., who specializes in grief counseling. “A year into this, the losses are piling up. I just had this conversation in my office when this person said, ‘I can’t complain about my grief, because people have it worse.’ But we have to correct that thinking. Your grief is your grief. You can’t compare it to other people’s.”
