Grief & Loss

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

8950 Villa La Jolla Drive, B214-1, La Jolla, CA

Treatment for grief and loss must allow the sufferer to fully express the range of their feelings. Individuals have their own (private) experience of attachment to loved ones. Present losses (death, divorce, loss of job, home) can also stimulate old feelings (pain, anger, guilt, shame, hopelessness, abandonment, rejection, etc.) from childhood that are unprocessed and unresolved. People who did not experience a safe family life in childhood are naturally reluctant to rely on others to share their sensitive feelings and are afraid to do so in the present. I offer clients the opportunity to explore the resistance to trust others and the opportunity to create a new relationship.
