Grief & Loss

Emily Lyon, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Experiences of grief for someone important but not central to one's life can move towards healing as feelings are freely expressed and the importance of the relationship is explored. More acute grief for the loss of someone central to one's life involves a more extended process of expressing the many different emotions that emerge, sometimes using art supplies to express feelings not ready for words. Reflection on the meaning this person had in your life and the the many losses involved can eventually lead to thoughts about how one can go on, using the wisdom gleaned from the grief process. A major grief never goes away entirely but the precious memories are sustaining.

In coping and adjusting to an environment, where the person is no longer around or has deceased, it is a necessary step towards acceptance. I work with the bereaved to start the acceptance, the healing, preserving the memories and begin rebuilding a new environment with hope for the future. You will get assisted in a nurturing way to help you find the strength to establish new routines or adapt previous ones, that worked well. You will slowly work on the acceptance that even though the physical presence of the departed may be missing, you can continue to relate to them through rituals, feelings and memories. You will also work on the reason why this person choose to come into your life.

Grief cracks you wide open. It seems the pain will ever end. Life continues and everything is going faster than you are. Maybe people are saying platitudes – to help you feel better. But it doesn’t help. Maybe no one wants to talk about your loved one, and that is actually worse. You don’t want him or her to be erased. Just getting through the day takes all the energy you have. You see your loved walking, but it's not him. You smell her scent, but it's not her. At the same time, you’re supposed to be making financial and practical decisions, and likely still trying to work. It can feel crushing or numb. You don’t have to go through this alone. I can help. I’ve been through it myself.

Hoai-Thu Truong, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Loss and grief are painful, difficult, yet normal experiences we all go through as human beings, whether they be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the loss of a dream. Sometimes loss can bring up unresolved concerns from our past, which complicates matters. If you want an experienced person to listen, feel stuck in the grieving process or worry that you have become a burden to friends and family, I can accompany you and help you move through the grieving process. By appreciating and mourning what you have lost, you become more free to move on with your life, and can emerge more wise and more open to joy.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Grief and loss are often mismanaged by therapists who do not understand the difference depression and grief. If you are dealing with a loss that doesn't seem to be diminishing, or is interfering with your functioning for a period of time that does not seem reasonable to you, now may be the time to seek a consultation. The pain of the loss does not have to last forever.

Grief & Loss

Philip Rahm, Ph.D.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

The experience of loss and grief is fundamental to the human condition. Often, the experience of loss and the ensuing grief are some of the most intense and painful emotional experiences we ever have. It is important to have appropriate and understanding support during the most acute phase of this process. My approach to helping my clients through the grieving process is to provide a a solid and steady presence without ever pressuring either subtly or overtly to "get over" the loss. Anger is a core component of the process and needs to be fully acknowledged before one can move forward in a meaningful way. Please call or email for further information.

Lori Godin, MBA, MA, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

With respect to grief and loss, I generally only work with people who have experienced a traumatic loss and then are unable to move past it, even after a lengthy amount of time. The grief process is unique to each individual, and depending on your relationship with the person who has passed, it can take a long time to heal. However, if it appears that there is no progress being made in the healing process and the loss was traumatic, I can help with resolving the trauma to allow the healing process to continue.

Barbara Pannoni, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Grief and loss can take many forms in our lives. If you have lost a loved one to death, divorce, addiction or estrangement, the pain can be intense and disorienting. Other forms of loss such as disability, loss of health, infertility, infidelity, loss of faith or the loss of a lifelong dream can also leave us reeling and grieving. Loss is very personal. While others may not understand what you're going through, I will respect your experience and walk through it with you for as long as it takes.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Grief & Loss

Eileen Goldman, MA MFT

Liscensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of East Palo Alto, CA

Grief and Loss come in many forms and symptoms can sometimes mimic other issues like depression/anxiety. We can carry grief about many things; the relationships we desperately longed for with our parent, children, partners that never materialized, the betrayal of our bodies as we age or deal with disability, loss of a loved one, pet, or dream. Working through grief is its own very personal journey. My experience working with Bereaved families with Hospice and my own personal losses help inform my approach with clients to deal with their own grief and mourning.
