Sooner or later you will lose someone you love or something that is important to you. It happens to all of us and it’s easy to become overwhelmed and lose perspective in such times. There is a process that guides you through grief and brings you to the other side whole. I offer to guide you through the process at your pace and in your way so you will have your time to grieve with comfort and perspective and emerge stronger having endured the experience.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

680 Old Telegraph Canyon Road, Suite 202, Chula Vista, CA

There are many forms of loss that can significantly impact a person's life (i.e. losing a job, friendship, home, death of a loved one, giving up a destructive habit or addiction). The pain that accompanies grief and loss can be so overwhelming that it takes all of our will power just to get through the day. Depending on the nature of the loss, it can feel like purpose and passion for living are missing. I assist clients in a 3 step process which involves acceptance of the loss, finding meaning to the pain they are experiencing, and developing goals to help the client continue productively on their life journey.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 can be tricky. It comes and goes at unexpected times and for unpredictable reasons. It can help to have someone to talk to who understands what you're going through. And grief doesn't occur just when someone dies — you may be grieving the loss of a job, a friendship, or a pet. Grief takes time to heal, yet healing and hope are possible. My experience volunteering as a hospice counselor gives me special insight into the grieving heart.

Grief and loss can be one of the greatest unexpected obstacles in life. They can range from the death of a loved one to the loss of a job or close relationship. I see grief as a part of your journey towards healing that changes who you are. Those changes take time and include acceptance, working through pain, adjusting to your new environment, and reinvesting in the future. I see hope, courage and grace as key components in this journey and I am here to walk alongside.

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4080 Centre Street, Suite 202, San Diego, CA

Grief is something that can be difficult to explain or understand if it has not been felt. After the loss of my daughter Riley, I went through a time of grief and loss unlike anything I had experienced before. As your therapist, you can be assured that I am not only extensively trained in grief counseling methods - but that I also intimately know what it feels like. I have the heart knowledge as well as the book knowledge allowing me to better address your concerns and thoughts than someone who has not experienced painful loss.

Grief & Loss

Mary Obata, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

5100 Marlborough Dr., San Diego, CA

Losing someone you love is one of the biggest challenges in life, especially if it was unexpected. There can be trauma associated with the loss that can be disturbing. My approach to grief and loss is to allow expression of all the feelings involved in losing a loved one. It can be a confusing time with a mixture of shock, sadness, anger, fear, and hopelessness. Finding ways to express unresolved feelings through talking and letter writing can be helpful. What I also offer that is unique are mind/body therapies such as EMDR that help process and release distressing or stuck feelings. You can feel more at peace and accepting with the help of these techniques.
