Most patients I see realize that they have had losses and have suffered grief and yet are not sure exactly how to grieve or even if they should be grieving. "Shouldn't I be over this by now?", I hear many patients ask me. My answer to them and to you is that you aren't over it until you are over it, and even then the losses you have suffered are something that is a part of your life story. In our work together we create a place for you to mourn the losses that you have suffered, go through the stages and grief in a safe and supportive environment---for the only way to get through the other side of grief is to go thought it.

Grieving a loss can feel overwhelming and isolating. Whether you are grieving a recent loss or need to process a loss from your past, a safe space to freely express your thoughts and feelings can be healing. Children's response to loss is framed by their developmental capacities. For this reason, children may process a loss and then need to reprocess at a later stage of development. Therapy provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to process their loss in age appropriate ways.

Olga Aguilar, M.A. LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My approach to Grief & Loss is for the client to be aware of the 7 stages of grief and to have them understand that their feelings about their loss are normal. Many times when someone close to us dies, we question whether not crying, crying too much, or perhaps feeling angry at the world is OK. These are all normal feelings and reactions people have to loss. Once a client understands this, they can continue to grieve without having any questions about their own actions or feelings.

Licensed Psychotherapist & Certified Coach

There are many losses at mid life, from seeing our children grow up and leave the nest to the loss of our parents, a "grey divorce" after many years of marriage or a mid career lay off or career change. Everything seems to be changing at this age and stage and so many transitions all at once can trigger all kinds of uncomfortable feelings. While these feelings are normal, you don't have to deal with them all alone. Change is necessary and loss is inevitable, but having a trusted professional who offers empathy, a fresh perspective and some coping tools can make all the difference.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Depression and anxiety are often a result of not having processed past difficult situations. We all experience loss, and we have a natural process involving our emotions which helps us recover. Most of us do not receive the permission or the teaching to help us use this natural process. Therapy can help work through "stuck" experiences so that we are freer to move forward in life with less restriction.

In treating grief and loss, it is essential to facilitate a safe, respectful therapeutic interaction, in which clients are able to tell their story, process and express their feelings of grief, explore the meaning of their loss, and revise their relationship with the deceased. Additionally, using cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques enable people to develop skills for coping with the anxiety, depression, and difficult emotions that may arise as a result of the grieving process.

Grief & Loss

Jeannette York, MFT, MA

Marriage and Family Therapist

When we lose someone we love, the emotional and physical pain is difficult to explain. Studies show that grief and loss for many people are represented by real pain often in the area of the heart. This is where the term a "broken heart" originates. In many other countries when a person loses a loved one, they take several weeks away from work to process and handle the intense emotions from their loss. In the U.S. we are generally "allowed" 3 working days to "get over it!". Pain from the loss of a loved one takes time to heal. If you are mourning and need to talk with someone who understands and can help, please call to make an appt. Jeannette York, 818.200.9513 4405 Riverside Burbank,$150.

Therapist & Counselor

Coping with grief and loss is unique to each person and situation. Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something that has meant a great deal to you and been part of your life. Even changes in your health, career, or lifestyle, can cause grief. I approach each case by starting where you are. Although there are different "stages" to working through grief and loss, each person experiences these stages in different ways, durations and may even revisit some of these stages multiple times throughout the process. My goal is to allow you the opportunity to experience each stage at your own pace while focusing on maintaining your health.
