Grief and loss can be so very difficult to work through. Whether the loss was expected or unexpected, it still hurts. I will guide you through the process with a combination of talking and sharing, art projects, journaling projects, and mindfulness exercises. Whether you lost a family member, a friend, or a beloved pet, I can help you process the pain and feelings of loss as you find closure. And I will never tell you to "just get over it".

One of the hardest things in life is experiencing the loss of someone or something so close to us.

I will support you as you navigate through the stages of grief, and adapt to the changes life has brought your way.

Grief and loss is a delicate life experience. I will be mindful of where you are in your grief process and meet you there. I believe it is difficult to understand grief without experiencing it directly, which I have in many different ways. I process grief and loss issues in a variety of ways. One avenue is psycho-education on the grief/loss stages. Another tool is through creativity through art and writing. Bibliotherapy, reading grief books, is another coping strategy. Finally, a grief support group where you will meet others enduring pain is another instrument to work through the pain of losing a loved one.

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Nadia Siswanto, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Losing someone you love whether it is divorce, death, or some other life transition is hard, sometimes even devastating. By the time you realize how hard it has hit you, people around you have already moved on, and you are left feeling like you should just “get over it.” But that isn’t how grief works. It isn’t something that happens in a moment, it is something that happens over time. Having a safe place to work through everything that comes up is the best way to truly grieve. When we don’t adequately deal with our losses, it can come back to bite us, sometimes even years later. I will help you grieve in a private, safe space.

We believe a vital part of therapy is the idea of grief and loss. Your ability to accept things the way they are can be hugely affected by the way you have dealt with loss in your life. In order to create a new future, sometimes that requires mourning the loss of some aspect of yourself. If therapy is something you are considering, then chances are you have had many struggles in your life and something you resorted to for survival may not be the best coping skill of today. However, letting go of that coping skill can be a painful loss of yourself. For example, if you found validation in sexual experiences and clung to some aspect of relationships throughout your life, then letting go of

Everyone must deal with grief and loss at some point in their lives. When the loss is significant, the sadness can be overwhelming. Sometimes, the best therapy in such cases is simply to provide a safe place for the client to be heard and supported. Just being there for someone who is dealing with loss and the grief that accompanies it is often sufficient to help them manage the feelings and get back to living their own life in a productive and satisfying way.
