Adrienne Clements, MA LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

3505 Cadillac Ave O-109, Costa Mesa, California

Everyone grieves losses differently. And there are many different kinds of losses. By working with me, you will turn toward your more difficult emotions and learn to embrace them and accept the profound losses you are faced with. Certain losses may take longer to grieve, and the intensity of the loss will change over time. You will learn to meet your grieving with compassion and understanding.

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.

Costa Mesa, California

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.

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 is a painful and frightening process and it's important to recognize that each individual experiences grief in a different way. There is no "right way" to grieve. Some people may show a lot of emotion and others may retreat into themselves and become quiet. Alternatively, some people may become physically ill, display anger, throw themselves into a project or work, or simply lay on the couch and feel unable to do anything. Psychotherapy helps in understanding the grief process and assists in actively working through it. It also helps in developing an awareness of the strong feelings you have and an understanding of how previous experiences and loss have an impact today.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

2900 Bristol St., Suite G-201, Costa Mesa, California

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1700 Adams Avenue, Suite 214, Costa Mesa, California

Kristi Starkey Counselor in Mission Viejo, CA will walk with you through the five stages of grief. Denial, which helps you survive the grief;. Anger which is important to feel and release. Bargaining because you want life to return back to what it was. Depression as you are filled with empty feelings and grief enters a deeper level. Acceptance is about you accepting the reality they are gone. I have personally experienced the loss of both my parents before the age of 29 so I know how overwhelming and painful the process is but would like the opportunity to walk through your grief with you.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

"Aren't you over that yet?" "Is that still bothering you?" I dislike those phrases very much! Everyone grieves differently and no two losses are the same. 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. Someone might need a month off of work whereas another only a couple of days. It is okay and you can heal. I can help you sort through your feelings and you can feel better.

We are so lucky to have people in our lives that we love and whom have made an impact. It is a painful thing to have to say goodbye to that person. It is a process which is unique to each individual.

With understanding, empathy and some tools to help you through the suffering, you can move through grief in a healthy way.
