Grief & Loss

Nadia Siswanto, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Canoga Park, CA

Losing someone you love whether it is divorce, death, or some other life transition is hard, sometimes even devastating. By the time you realize how hard it has hit you, people around you have already moved on, and you are left feeling like you should just “get over it.” But that isn’t how grief works. It isn’t something that happens in a moment, it is something that happens over time. Having a safe place to work through everything that comes up is the best way to truly grieve. When we don’t adequately deal with our losses, it can come back to bite us, sometimes even years later. I will help you grieve in a private, safe space.

Grief and loss can be so very difficult to work through. Whether the loss was expected or unexpected, it still hurts. I will guide you through the process with a combination of talking and sharing, art projects, journaling projects, and mindfulness exercises. Whether you lost a family member, a friend, or a beloved pet, I can help you process the pain and feelings of loss as you find closure. And I will never tell you to "just get over it".

Losing a person, relationship or beloved companion animal can leave you feeling alone, lost and scared. I can help you give voice to your emotions and begin to integrate the grief into your life in a healthy way. It's normal to grieve deeply when we love deeply. Honoring those feelings is an important part of walking the path of healing. Therapy offers those experiencing the tidal wave of emotions that are often present after a loss the opportunity to process the past, present and future in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I work together to process the loss, discuss stages of grief & begin working towards deeper healing & acceptance. We never fully "get over" the losses in our lives, but we learn how to accept them & move towards a healthier view of...(view profile to read more)

Chris Massman, MA, LMFT, CDS

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Grief and loss is a delicate life experience. I will be mindful of where you are in your grief process and meet you there. I believe it is difficult to understand grief without experiencing it directly, which I have in many different ways. I process grief and loss issues in a variety of ways. One avenue is psycho-education on the grief/loss stages. Another tool is through creativity through art and writing. Bibliotherapy, reading grief books, is another coping strategy. Finally, a grief support group where you will meet others enduring pain is another instrument to work through the pain of losing a loved one.

Audrey Johnson, Psy. D.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Losing a loved one is hard to deal with and talking to the right person can really make a difference. Putting those messy emotions into a wrapped up package is not the way it is meant to be. The Kubler- Ross Stages of Grief will enable you to process grief if you know what to expect. Those stages are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These stages are not ones that are necessarily done in order when dealing with the loss of your loved one. Knowing what to expect and having the right counselor to talk with will help by giving you the tools to frame and identify this loss. It is time to start learning to live life to the fullest again.

Grief & Loss

Dana Fogel-Stark, LMFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Canoga Park, CA

Grief is a normal reaction to any type of loss. The therapeutic objective is to help bereaved individuals recover from the emotional pain caused by the loss. Therapy goals consist of: recovery from the loss to help the client feel better, choosing a healthier approach to grieving, finding new meaning for living, reducing fears and unhealthy ways for dealing with the loss, and having the ability to enjoy memories and connecting to the deceased rather than resorting to isolation/depression. My therapeutic approach consists of educating about the stages of loss, working on issues complicating the grief process, validating emotions and teaching better coping mechanisms to handle the loss.

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Grief & Loss

Robert Ogner, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Canoga Park, CA

I helped a man whose losses piled up on the shores of his soul. His wife of their youth: cancer. Ten years later, their treasure of a son in an accident. 25 years further: his second wife’s complex betrayal and leaving of him. He and I and you do not know what to do with our pain of loss. We turn against it unless someone helps us make a place for it in our hearts. We hate ourselves for our pain and strengthen to subdue our anguish. We close our hearts further as pain builds upon pain. Now fear is added: Where are we? We have to learn to trust our pain, to make a loving place for it in our heart, to find ourselves again. But this seems so impossible. I would like to help.
