Therapist with Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin


Not all losses are resolved; not all endings actually end. Cassondra Frisque, a therapist with Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, talks about ambiguous loss, which is, simply, loss without closure. We experience many losses in our lifetimes, ambiguous or otherwise, from family members and friends to the substances used if we’re recovering. How we handle those losses is unique to each of us. Cassondra can be reached at https://www.familyservicesnew.org/womens-recovery
