Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

I believe we are meant to love. But as loving human beings, the loss of important people in our lives is one of our most difficult challenges. Let me help you move through your grief, staying gently with you as you mourn. Grief has it's own timeline, with healing occurring quietly and inconsistently. Over time and with support, you will begin to experience hope, and even joy again.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

When we are grieving, we need time and space to experience and process our feelings, some of which may be very intense. Often, people feel very alone or weighed down by the pain of their loss. I offer a warm, supportive environment where clients can feel safe to openly express their grief and to honor the memory of their loved one, while they start to heal and move forward in their own life.

Grief & Loss

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

Life is full of many losses, the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, illness, loss of home, loss of friendships. With loss comes grief .We may not grieve as hard or as much when moving to a new home as we do when we have lost a loved one but we do still grieve. When we grieve we go through many stages, such as denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance. This process is unique to each individual and is unique to the kind of loss experienced. In therapy I will support you as you process often times very painful feelings related to your loss. Therapy will give you the support you deserve and in your own time you will be able to move forward in your own life.

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

I tell my clients that everyone grieves in their own, unique way, and that there is no "right way" to grieve. Sooner or later, we all face major losses of loved ones, and the grief involved can feel devastating. I provide loving support and help my clients connect with grief and loss support groups and other supports. We explore what the loss means for my client and ways to honor the memories of the loved one. We also explore and process unfinished, incomplete, or difficult losses that involve anger, shame, resentment, and deep disappointment.

Grief is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

Jozeffa Greer, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

Did you think you should be better by now, but can't stop thinking about the one you have lost? Grief is a normal part of loving and losing the person you loved. For many, however, it can become overwhelming and even lead to symptoms of depression. For five years, I volunteered with Hospice, helping people, many with complicated bereavement issues, to come to terms with the loss of the one who had been so important in their lives. In a caring environment, you can get the support and relief you need as you say good-bye to your loved one so that you can move forward again in your life.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

Have you lost a loved one to death, divorce, or estrangement? Everyone goes through loss at one point. The loss of a loved one can come suddenly or as a result of a long standing sickness or situation and still it may upend loved ones lives. I work with clients to move past regrets and overwhelming sadness to a place of honoring the memory and redefining ones future in the absence of a loved one.

Grief & Loss

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

I help people struggling with grief and loss issues by creating a safe, supportive environment for them to talk about what has happened to them. People tend to experience mental health problems when they are unable or do not allow themselves to experience their emotions surrounding grief and loss. Often times people in our lives try to be supportive but do not know how, so people end up telling us that there is a certain way to grieve or that we need to "just get over it". Everybody has their own grieving process. It is my job to help you open up to your emotions in a way that does not feel like they are going to swallow you whole, and to help you grieve in your own way and in your own time.

Grief & Loss

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of West Sacramento, CA

Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.
