Experiencing a loss can leave us feeling vulnerable, helpless and raw. Impermanence and uncertainty are the two of the greatest challenges we face as humans. Sometimes we just need a safe place to land and give expression to all we are experiencing. I am here to support and honor you and your grief as you travel this courageous journey of healing.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

During times of loss - death, divorce, disability and profound life changes - we all need support and understanding to regain our strength and ability to carry on. It usually takes months, even years, to fully integrate our changed circumstances into our lives. My goal is to provide a supportive, empathic atmosphere to help you move through your pain and suffering and discover new direction and meaning for your future.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I find that so much of my work as a psychotherapist involves helping people to grieve their losses, whether that loss is an actual death of a beloved family member or friend, or whether it is something less tangible, but no less impactful, such as the loss that comes from realizing that they were neglected as a child or made to feel unworthy or insignificant. I believe that one of the most important things I do as a therapist is to make space for my clients to grieve their losses so that they can free up stuck energy to invest in their present lives and relationships. For me this is one of the most sacred gifts of my profession, to be able to be there for this deeply important work

Holistic Psychotherapist

Grief can be a mysterious process. Just as every organism is unique, everyone's process of grief is different. Some of us may grieve for a few days while others may take years. Some of us may find ourselves in anger or sadness due to the loss, while others may have difficulty feeling anything. All are normal and completely valid. In working with clients experiencing grief, that is the basis of my work: that all of what you are feeling and experiencing is okay and valid. My main goal is to provide a safe space for you to experience all of your emotions in result of your loss so that you can heal and find a sense of peace.

Grief and loss issues can stem from recent losses, or ones from decades past. They can feel overwhelming to deal with because of the intensity of emotion. However, having a safe environment to work through these issues at a pace that you are comfortable with is the best way to begin that journey. With grief, as with so many other things in life, the only way around the feelings are through them. I have experience working with individual and leading grief groups. I understand how grief manifests differently for different people, and will help you on your journey of healing. Please call me to discuss further and to determine if you'd like to schedule an appointment.

Grief is a journey. Sometimes people feel pressured to "get over it" or "move on", but grief has its own timing. Grief comes in waves, and is not linear in its phases. I help clients with their grief by helping hold their overwhelming feelings, making space for all of it - the sorrow, the anger, the regret, the denial. Recovering from loss can be confusing and lonely. Seeking therapy for grief is a great way to feel less alone.

Grief Counselor

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Emeryville

Relationship grief and loss can feel much the same as the grief and loss we experience through the death of a loved one. We progress through the same stages; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally, acceptance. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help you as you work through these stages and develop a greater understanding of your self and your relationship to others. Whether you are mourning the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a relationship, therapy can provide a compassionate and supportive place for you to heal from the pain and learn to grow and be happy again.

LIcensed Marriage and Family Therapist

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

You may be in the throws of it right now. Perhaps it is a death. Perhaps it is the end of a relationship. Perhaps it is a job or abandonment. There are many things that trigger our grief and loss. I carve out a sacred space that is just for YOU. You may need to cry. You may need to yell. You may need your pain to be seen. You may need to bargain or to blame yourself for a while. We can do this together while making sure you are on a path towards transformation. Having somebody that really listens and really gets it is the first step towards healing. If you are experiencing a deep grief or loss in your life, you owe it to yourself to go through this painful process supported.

When loved ones pass away, it can feel as though a part of ourselves dies with them. Loss is difficult because it reminds us of our own mortality and loneliness, leaving us with the void that is the role that this person once had in our lives. I assist the grieving process by helping you find closure in your relationship with the deceased so that you can move forward in a restored and fulfilling way.

Having lost a son, I know from personal experience about grief and how to help people work through the stages of grief and loss. It is never easy, and I always approach the person seeking help with tremendous gentleness and compassion. Since everyone has a different response to loss I find that the best counseling is collaborative, finding a way together through what sometimes seems insurmountable. I also make myself available by phone on a daily basis. Especially in the early phase of grief such support can make a tremendous difference. Depending on the client's comfort level, I offer a wider, spiritual perspective and non-sectarian spiritual practices as well.

Grief Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Within driving distance of Emeryville

There is a deep instinctual basis for our strong need for other people in our lives. This need to be connected to others goes against what were taught; that happiness comes from being at peace with being able to be alone. It's simply not true. Peace of mind and happiness comes through our connection to community, especially that one special partner. When we lose someone close to us it can be overwhelming and devastating. This can cause us to have thoughts of despair and a belief we can't go on. I can help you feel willing to healing and start living again.
