Have you ever felt consumed by grief and loss, struggling to cope with the overwhelming void it creates? Whether it’s the heartbreaking loss of a loved one, a devastating breakup, or even a job loss that shatters your identity, grief comes in many forms.

Yet, there’s an unspoken pressure to “move on” quickly, leaving many to grapple with complex emotions alone. How do we process the numbness, anger, and guilt that often accompany grief? How can we find closure when loss leaves us with unanswered questions and regrets?

In this powerful episode, we dive into the depths of grief and loss with Dr. Shikha Soni, a Clinical Psychologist at DocVita and expert in positive psychology. Through empathetic storytelling and candid insights, Shikha reminds us that healing isn’t about letting go, but carrying our loved ones’ memories forward.

So, grab a cozy spot and let’s enter the therapy room.
