Living in relationship with others leads to pain of loss when those relationships change or come to an end. But Grief work is helpful for more than just the death of a loved one- marital affairs, the empty nest, and retirement are other times of grief in the family life cycle. I will create a safe place for you to identify and express your feelings as you work through the stages of grief, with the goal of coming to a place of acceptance where you can once again move forward in your life.

I have worked with various types of depression, loss, hopelessness and grief since I have been in this counseling field for close to 30 years. This is what a client recently stated..." I wasn't able to function on my job. I had to have someone else do my work! I'm now doing GREAT at work! Before I was only able to sleep 2-3 hours a night. Now...My sleep's back to normal! No more thoughts of suicide and no more depression! I can't believe it! Now...I'm... EVEN... happy! I've been doing the things you've suggested and THEY"VE WORKED! I feel blessed! All this within a few visits?!"

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Although grief is an inevitable experience in life, coping with loss can be immobilizing. Because each individual is unique, finding the support you need to move through to a place of peace and acceptance is vital. I work with clients to help them process the pain of loss by addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that may be keeping them from resolving their pain and moving forward to a place of healing and acceptance. We work together to build a structure that both motivates and enables the healing process to begin and ultimately gives them the opportunity to overcome and triumph over grief.

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Is your grief stopping you from living the fulfilling life you desire? I believe that while grief is a natural reaction to experiencing loss, the process differs for everyone. Grief can have physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. I work with individuals and families on processing grief as the difficult and eventual acceptance of loss. The loss becomes a vital part of one’s life narrative life rather than its center. Healthy grieving is a gradual process toward coping with the loss and developing a renewed interest in daily activities. I understand the devastation of loss.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grief and loss counseling helps individuals process the loss of a loved one. Sometimes our losses feel so overwhelming, we lose our way and we are unable to use normal coping mechanisms. I work to help such individuals express their emotions and thoughts about the loss - including guilt, anger, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, relief, confusion, anger, or numbness. When words are too difficult, especially with children, I use art and play therapy.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

We all experience forms of grief and loss at times in our life. If we can thoroughly and deeply allow ourselves to grieve our losses, it lessens the chance loss will convert into depression. The natural tendency is to avoid this process, but we benefit greatly from submitting to it. Loss is inevitable, but we can have an influence on how we choose to handle it. One of my greatest privileges is to come alongside someone who is grappling with a profound loss in their life. It can be a time of significant transformation.

Robert Puff, M.A., M.Div., Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life.
