Grief & Loss

Mary Obata, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Spring Valley, 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.

Ronald Reichard, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

When you suffer the loss of a loved one, you certainly will experience great sorrow. But it is also possible that you may experience symptoms similar to clinical depression. It is normal for these symptoms to last for days. But if they continue at a significant level for a week or more, you may need extra support. Grief counseling can be of benefit. I will help you move through the grief process in a constructive and purposeful way. We will engage you in specific interventions that honor your loss, and help you find the meaning in the painful reality you experience. Taking time for purposeful grieving, you learn to re-engage in your normal life, minimizing the risk of clinical depression.

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Spring Valley, CA

Grief is a very real and painful experience with many dimensions, and it has no time limit. Well-meaning loved ones may not understand the extent of your grief and pain. Mourning is a process that is unique and personal. Not everyone grieves in the same way nor does everyone require the same amount of time to work through their grief. Grief can be complicated by the length of the relationship with the person who died, the nature of that relationship, any traumatic components to the loss, multiple losses, and the strength of your remaining support system. If your grief feels overwhelming or your depression lasting, contact me for the support you need to heal and find your way forward.

Therapy for grief and loss can help you through a very difficult and painful transition. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and allowing yourself to spend time grieving instead of pushing down the feelings and emotions that ought to be expressed can help you to manage through this time in the best way possible. I provide a safe and caring place and a supportive therapeutic relationship as you work through your experience and manage the wide range of emotions you may feel.

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 & Loss

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Spring Valley, 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.

The loss of a loved one, a relationship, or even a job can leave you wondering how to cope. While grief is a normal part of loss, it can sometimes be hard to see a way to the other side of grief on your own. Grief is a journey you are on, not a place you have to stay. I can help you find ways to honor the memories while also finding hope again for the future.

Grief and loss are a part of life yet can feel overwhelming! If you are suffering from illness, the death of a loved one, loss of a job or relationship, or going through life transitions, therapy can assist in your healing. Grief can be isolating. Individuals, couples, and families can learn to stay connected rather than be torn apart during these difficult times. Learning to cope with your situation in an accepting atmosphere can help you develop a renewed sense of hope and renewed connection, first to yourself and then to significant others. You do not need to go through your pain alone!

The only way to heal from grief is by grieving. There is no other way around it. Grief and loss are two of the most painful feelings we can experience. The hopelessness and helplessness that accompany these feelings are deep and seem unrelenting. Bereavement counseling can provide a safe place for the expression of all feelings surrounding grief including anger, and the realization that love is stronger than death and loss.
