Grief & Loss

Nancy Ryan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Grief can occur from losing a relationship, losing a loved one or many other transitions or losses. Life seems to go on around you, but the hurt and sadness can take a long time to recover from. Family can only help for so long. Getting professional help is a step toward the beginnings of recovery. Overcoming grief is about processing your emotions, honoring the loss and creating small steps to a new life. Timing is individual and not everyone grieves in the same way. I would be honored to help you start feeling better.

Grief & Loss

Jennifer Ballerini, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

To be really connected to someone or something that matters to us means that we leave ourselves open to the pain of losing them. Loss and grief are normal parts of life, but they can rob us of our vitality, our confidence, and even our sense of who we are. It's so important that you've found the strength to reach out. As a psychologist with 13 years of experience helping people overcome painful losses, I can provide the caring and support you need to help ease your pain and find new perspectives that allow you to move forward. Rather than just surviving day to day, I can help you to continue on and thrive.

Gerald Frye, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Grief counseling becomes necessary when a person is so disabled by their grief, overwhelmed by loss to the extent that their normal coping processes are disabled or shut down. Grief counseling facilitates expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including sadness, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, isolation, confusion, or numbness. Often people feel disorganized, tired, have trouble concentrating, sleep poorly and have vivid dreams, and experience change in appetite. These too are addressed in my grief and loss counseling sessions.

Grief & Loss

Tarra Benoist, LMFT, MS

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Grief is a strange emotion that is hard to experience until the trauma of the loss has past. I can help with the initial trauma of the loss and allow a safe place for each person to have their own response. There is no right way to grieve. It's also not something that we get over, but rather move through and grow from when possible. Grief takes time and it can be years after the loss when grief can be explored.

Navigating life after the loss of a loved one can be difficult. Oftentimes survivors are left feeling overwhelmed by emotion states, unable to function in every day life. We can feel guilt for wanting to “get over” our grief which can keep us from moving forward. Come in and learn how you can both honor the loss and actively work towards reclaiming your life from debilitating unaddressed emotions.

Grief & Loss

Retha Millikan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

From death of a loved one to loss of a significant relationship, processing loss is a painful and lonely journey...especially done alone. Often, one of the aspects of loss is that there is compounding guilt for one's feelings. Normalizing and supporting my client's experience during a wrenching time is something I enjoy. The length of the process varies greatly from person to person, but support is paramount.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grieving is a process that is unique and different for each individual. Sometimes we put it off because we are afraid that once we face it, it will never end! Grieving, while difficult, can be a sacred time to reflect, accept, and recover. You can start healing and moving forward. I can help you deal with the painful losses you've experienced. Although loss cannot be reversed, learning how to accept and cope with grief can be tremendously empowering. I will support you in a gentle, sensitive manner as we honor your experience and work toward peaceful resolution of your pain.

Grief & Loss

Joan Druckman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Loss is like an emotional injury that requires grief to heal. There is a natural healing process that occurs, but sometimes our grief does not resolve and therapy can help support you during the natural process of healing or help when healing is not progressing. I will help you accept the reality of the loss, have a safe place to experience and understand the pain of grief, and adjust to the loss and all that it requires to create a "new normal." Moving forward means finding meaning in life in spite of the loss and also holding on to and remembering the parts of the loss that held joy.

Daryl Temkin, Daryl Temkin

Ph.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Grief and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

Grief & Loss

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.

Losing someone close to you is difficult for anyone to go through. We all experience grief in different ways, which means there is no one-size-fits all approach to loss. If you have experienced a loss in your life, my approach to grief and loss will help you to overcome your struggles and move forward with your life. You will leave your sessions with a better outlook and more insight to your situation.

Kathryn Ventry, MA, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #86507

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

I provide warm and empathic support for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, a pet, a relationship, or any other type of loss. I offer a safe environment to explore deep feelings and thoughts. I have advance training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to overcome self-defeating beliefs and view yourself, others and the world, in a new way. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which has proven effective in treating trauma and other issues. For coupes I integrate CBT and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT helps couples heal their attachment wounds, feel safer with each other with a greater capacity for intimacy.

Grief & Loss

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

I help people struggling with grief and loss issues by creating a safe, supportive environment for them to talk about what has happened to them. People tend to experience mental health problems when they are unable or do not allow themselves to experience their emotions surrounding grief and loss. Often times people in our lives try to be supportive but do not know how, so people end up telling us that there is a certain way to grieve or that we need to "just get over it". Everybody has their own grieving process. It is my job to help you open up to your emotions in a way that does not feel like they are going to swallow you whole, and to help you grieve in your own way and in your own time.

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

I tell my clients that everyone grieves in their own, unique way, and that there is no "right way" to grieve. Sooner or later, we all face major losses of loved ones, and the grief involved can feel devastating. I provide loving support and help my clients connect with grief and loss support groups and other supports. We explore what the loss means for my client and ways to honor the memories of the loved one. We also explore and process unfinished, incomplete, or difficult losses that involve anger, shame, resentment, and deep disappointment.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Grief is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Did you think you should be better by now, but can't stop thinking about the one you have lost? Grief is a normal part of loving and losing the person you loved. For many, however, it can become overwhelming and even lead to symptoms of depression. For five years, I volunteered with Hospice, helping people, many with complicated bereavement issues, to come to terms with the loss of the one who had been so important in their lives. In a caring environment, you can get the support and relief you need as you say good-bye to your loved one so that you can move forward again in your life.

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Citrus Heights, CA

Life is full of many losses, the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, illness, loss of home, loss of friendships. With loss comes grief .We may not grieve as hard or as much when moving to a new home as we do when we have lost a loved one but we do still grieve. When we grieve we go through many stages, such as denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance. This process is unique to each individual and is unique to the kind of loss experienced. In therapy I will support you as you process often times very painful feelings related to your loss. Therapy will give you the support you deserve and in your own time you will be able to move forward in your own life.

I have found that my clients find relief and comfort when they can talk to someone that has no judgement about how they "should" be feeling.

Over time and with support, you will begin to experience hope, and even joy again.
