Certified Life Coach & Hypnotherapist

Everybody grieves differently, which means we need to find a unique method of remembering the loved one. Clients tend to enjoy being creative about healing and giving a tribute to the life of a loved one. All the stages of grief come and go out of order so this work needs to be flexable. I've had my clients write letters, make boxes that they fill with memories of their loved one, write poems, or songs, and sometimes even make a temproary shrine.

Loss in all its forms in an integral facet of life. Most of us have formed deep bonds with spouses, family, and friends, and grieving is both a testimony to the deep importance of those others to us, and part of a difficult, gradual process of letting go. Therapy work includes the honoring of either ended or failed relationships--deaths of many types--and also the grieving of we go through due to illness and aging.. A good therapist-patient relationship deals with numerous such painful "necessary losses", as well with successes in life.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Fe Springs, 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. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

Grief and loss is a functional part of being human. While we all accept this reality we are all too often unprepared for the emotional impact of the event. The loss of anyone close to us is always difficult. Sometimes we are impacted by the loss of others whom we do not even know.

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.

I have worked with victims of trauma and abuse for over 15 years. I have been trained on many different methods to helping a client through their trauma so that they can begin living without PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms. Many people come to therapy because of the nightmares, trouble sleeping, having flashbacks, and having intimacy issues because they cannot let their guard down. For 10 years I worked using strictly a “person centered” approach to therapy. That means that I would let the survivor tell their story in their own way and not really guide them much. My main job was to make sure they felt safe and figured out ways to be safe. This process took a very long time, but it ....

Nothing in life can be more difficult and painful than dealing with loss. When we love deeply we will also grieve deeply. When we don't know how to grieve well, prolong sadness and pain can remain.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

Losing a baby is the hardest challenge that any parent can face. There are no words to describe the grief and pain that follow. It is a loss that cannot be measured. Parents can feel utterly alone, wondering if they can survive as relatives and friends are encouraging them to move on. Anger can mount in trying to understand why. Grief and loss take time to heal. I work with fathers who have lost a baby, had a stillbirth, termination, or lost a baby in neonatal care. Take the time to reach out for help. This is a difficult journey that takes time and is slow. The death of a baby is hard for many to understand. I encourage you to care for yourself and reach out for help.

Grieving alone is difficult especially when friends and family although well meaning can be uncomfortable, don't quite know what you need, and can have their own emotions triggered red by yours. You can't grieve if you have to take care of others. Come grieve healthily in my office and no one is going to tell you to hurry up and get over it. You'll experience a wide arrange of emotions including sadness and anger and I'll teach you how to handle strong emotions..You need to go through these feelings in order to grieve properly. Why grieve alone when you can work with a professional who knows how to navigate the waters of grief.

Loss can be experienced in many different ways - death (expected or sudden), ending of a relationship, and/or life transitions. Well meaning friends and family can try to get us to "move past it" faster than we are ready to. These interactions can be hurtful and sometimes add to our pain. Working through issues of grief and loss can give you a safe place to express your feelings so that you can work through your disbelief, pain, and anger to a place of healing.

Death comes quickly or slowly in everyone's life. Loved-ones might suffer chronic illness followed by painful death. In these situations, grief and loss occur before the loved-one has actually died; the experience of death is a drawn-out process of sadness. Loved-ones can also die suddenly and shockingly. Without any warning, someone is gone. Regret, guilt, wishes to have done something differently compound grief. Sadness, emptiness, confusion, over-whelm and numbness follow too. Children dying is beyond pain Relief comes from honest & open work--the type of psychotherapy that few friends or family feel equipped to provide you during your time of loss.

Grief & loss is often felt with the death of a loved one. It can also be experienced from the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your home. The grieving process can be complicated. You may love someone who suffers from a significant memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. You may feel guilty for grieving the loss of the person you knew before the illness because you feel you should be grateful he/she is still alive. As a person loses their memory, an important part of who they are gets lost. It is appropriate for this grieving process to begin before death. I would love to support you through whatever loss you are currently experiencing.

Navigating the pain of grief is an individual process, which can result in a myriad of social/cognitive/physical/emotional symptoms. Each person’s experience is unique, and should be treated as such. Treatment helps to understand the complexity of the loss, in addition how to manage its symptoms. Many people around you have unrealistic expectations of how you should handle, or can be uncomfortable with normal grief reactions. The support you receive at this difficult time should be consistent to help you to manage the wide variety of feelings you will have for weeks and months following such a major loss in your life.

These feelings are authentic and are in your body, so you must feel them. If grief and loss felt and expressed at the time it is felt, it is healthy and appropriate. It is best, however, to try to live in the present and not dwell on the past or go in the future with feelings of hopelessness. Grief in children and adults are different and are treateddifferently.

Though this time may be very difficult for you, it is so valuable to feel and express all the emotions and thoughts you are experiencing, so that eventually the storm will subside and you can move forward. Moving forward does not mean your loved one is ever forgotten, it just means that you can now find meaning and peace with life as you now experience it.

Among the benefits of grief counseling are: normalizing (grief feels strange but it is universal); making meaning (coming to terms with our mortality); and the opportunity to express feelings, safely and in full, about the person who has died. When a client suffers a loss during or prior to treatment, I communicate the message that each of us is entitled to a grief process of our own, with its own tempo, mood, and meaning, all of which fluctuate, often in complex ways. The support of an empathic person can help you walk the painful path that grief puts before you, a path which leads out of grief and back to life.

Any time there is a significant loss in our life , grief will follow. Something we value is gone and there is an emptiness, a sadness within our heart. Grief is a realization of our powerlessness, the awareness that our hard work, our prayers, or our will power can not restore what has been lost. Grief is a process, a time of recovery. We need a safe place where we can express our feelings, receive empathy, love and supper to work through the pain. Mourning and grieving are a part of moving to the next phase, we should neither eliminate this season nor stay in it. We are unable to keep someone from dying, stop a child from choosing sin, or prevent a spouse from makin wrong choices.

Being alone increases the stress dramatically. Feeling understood with compassion and safety can bring you a long way back into a place of well being.

We have all experienced loss at some point in our lives. Grief becomes very tricky when we start feeling stuck and can't seem to, or don't want to, move on. Complicated grief means you still feel as sad, angry and upset about the loss as you did in the days immediately following. Sometimes this is even years later. I help people process their loss through a trauma-focused lens. This means, I help people learn relaxation skills to help manage the strong feelings they have, gain insight into their current coping patterns and relationships, and detail what happened during the loss to obtain a different way of thinking about it.

Loss and grief are natural occurrences in life. However, they can be major intrusions in the quality of our life if we are too caught up in them. They can also interfere if we are so defended against them that they limit our ability to function or impair our daily interactions with others. Sometimes, what we have lost is not a person but a job or a situation in our life that has had great meaning for us, like our self-image. That can feel devastating. Just like losing a person, these events must be grieved if we are to be able to move on. Grieving doesn’t mean forgetting or being weak. It’s a sign of love and strength. Together, we can work through the grief so you can move on.

We all will inevitably experience loss- i.e., the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship, possibly significant life transitions. Grief and loss work focuses on developing effective and healthy coping mechanisms while moving through often challenging emotional states. Often individuals utilize maladaptive coping strategies, such as substances, alcohol and/or food to help minimize painful feelings. My philosophy is that while there are identifiable stages of grief and loss, they are not experienced sequentially. Navigating often confusing and competing emotions is necessary to ultimately heal.

Grief and Loss is profound and a natural part of the life cycle. Losses occur everyday from a simple disappointment ( lunch cancelled) which is easily recoverable to a more significant and impactful loss ( a job,relationship,health or finances). I believe clients benefit from having their grief and loss witnessed by another and by having a place to process the experience and it's meaning to them. The benefit of therapy is to allow the individual to unfold and assimilate the loss which may never be "gotten over".

Everyone experiences loss in life. When those losses overwhelm us and create a grief that gets stuck, it's important to seek counseling to move through it. Whether you are suffering from a death, loss of a relationship or failed expectations, it's normal to feel sadness, anger, and confusion. Don't suffer in isolation. I can help you navigate these waters and lead you to acceptance.

Everyone grieves in their own way. You shouldn't feel you are out-of-control because you grieve in unexpected ways or for a longer peroid. Cultural and religious differences in grieving exist which are perfectly acceptible. A therapist must be sensitive to these issues. Grief is said to involve denial, anger, bargaining, deperession and acceptance. We will monitor your reactions to validate those feelings in session. Unhealthy reactions to loss do occur; self-medicating, and isolating oneslef for long periods, experiencing full-blown depression -- these behaviors, can prove detrimental. We will monitor your behaviors and mood changes and deal with negative conditions, should they occur.

Grief and Loss is profound and a natural part of the life cycle. Losses occur everyday from a simple disappointment ( lunch cancelled) which is easily recoverable to a more significant and impactful loss ( a job,relationship,health or finances). I believe clients benefit from having their grief and loss witnessed by another and by having a place to process the experience and it's meaning to them. The benefit of therapy is to allow the individual to unfold and assimilate the loss which may never be "gotten over".

We all encounter loss. It's and inescapable part of life. Painful as it can be, how we deal with grief and loss determines how we either thrive or live our lives always feeling the loss that once was. The inability to work through grief or loss keeps us from living fully in the moment. The ability to let go of the things we've lost is crucial to moving on. People who grieve well live well. Those who don't, don't. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

I am very mindful of the pain that clients are experiencing when they have lost a loved one, or are experiencing grief over upcoming loss of a person or of a dream that they have had for their life. The loss of a relationship produces feelings of grief that can be difficult to manage and work through. I help patients focus on the feelings that surround "grief": anger, denial, depression, guilt that they may be burdened by, etc. I help them develop new coping skills so they can move toward acceptance of the loss at the same time as they rebuild hope for themselves in this new reality without the person or relationship they have lost. Together with the client we redefine a hopeful future.

When we lose we anything we love, whether it be a person, a thing, a life situation or something we relied on, two things need to happen in therapy. First, we need a place to express the sadness of what we have lost. I give clients the safety, support, and guidance to the feel powerful emotions that come with any significant loss in life. Secondly, everything significant to us has a “dream” attached to it. A vision of what it means to us in the present and a view of what it will mean to us in the future. When we lose that thing, we lose the dream. Grief work is about grieving the actual loss and also dealing with the dream that went along with it. I know how to help clients with both of t....

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost.

Everyone's story of grief and loss is unique. There is no such thing as the right way to grieve or the appropriate amount of time to grieve. Most everything people tend to say about grieving and loss is addressing their own discomfort. Grieving does not have to be only about enduring and getting through the pain of loss, it can actually bring forth new meanings, a deeper sense of self and greater connections.

At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

When we talk about grief, most people first think of death: mourning a loved one who has passed on. But a deep sense of loss and grief can be triggered by other life events where "death" is more metaphorical than actual. Clearly, the loss of any meaningful relationship through separation, divorce, or betrayal fits into that category. As does the loss of a position in life you held dear, or a role you relied on in defining yourself. Even the completion of a demanding creative project can leave you feeling empty or despairing. In any of these situations (and so many others) I can help you come to terms with a loss, respect it, gain meaning from it, and, eventually, move beyond it.

Sadness, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance come with the territory and whatever you may be feeling is important. Please stay courageous and share. Help is here.

Losing a loved one, a friend, a job, a home, a dream, or financial security is something we are never prepared for and never get used to. Although we have all at some time experienced grief and loss of some sort, it is very hard to carry the weight alone. When we reach out to trained professionals we can often find emotional support that helps us navigate the dark forest of sorrow and suffering. Our nightly dreams and daytime imaginings can also offer hidden clues that help guide us and determine next steps. If you are in the throes of grief, feel stuck, or have unearthed an old heartache, please contact me so we can talk about how I can help with this difficult journey.

It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

Grief and loss can leave a person feeling depressed, vulnerable, angry and abandoned, with nowhere to turn and no one to turn to. It can help tremendously, to have a skilled therapist, who understands the process of what you are going through, and can help guide you through that process. There are five stages of grief, and it can be very beneficial to know these stages and recognize where one is at, as they head down the pathway toward healing.

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.

Although feelings of anger, sadness and guilt are normal responses to a loss it is sometimes difficult to move through them and may seem never-ending.

Grief is a most natural response to a loss and the more significant the loss the more intense the grief response. Grief can be caused by all kinds of losses, e.g., relationships ending, loss of a job, loss of heath, miscarriage, death, loss of a pet, loss of friendship. Counseling can help provide support and guidance as you journey through the grief experience.

Very few losses are easy. Even persons who extensively prepare for loss are not ready for the intensity of how it feels when it happens. We cope with life by forming valued relationships and attachments to things. We need our attachments and loss can make it feel like we do not know how we can go on. A dilemma with loss is that reality demands that we move on, while to let go is to invite many painful and difficult feelings. I will respect both as you try to move forward through the hard feelings and the often unpredictable stages of grieving, so that you can find a way to cope, face up to, and move forward with your life.

A loss can be characterized by a move, having to re-home a pet, changing jobs, and of course the loss of a loved one. One might feel angry while another might feel relieved.
