The loss of a loved one is never easy to cope with, neither is the loss of intimate relationships, separations or life changes that cause us to experience grief. Remember, your grief/loss process is unique to you,give yourself the opportunity to share your feelings in a safe environment, where no one is pushing you to "move on" or "get over it."

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....

Everyone experiences loss at some point in their lives. Grieving is a natural response to loss. Sometimes, though, a person's ability to grieve is thwarted by life stressors, resulting in feelings of guilt, confusion and depression. There is no right way to grieve, but it is important not to avoid it so you can begin your healing. If you have lost a significant other: a partner, parent, friend or pet, therapy is an safe place and an effective way to begin or continue your grieving process.

Grief Counselor

Jim Tauber and Laura Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists

Within driving distance of Hawthorne

We may all experience the grief and loss of a loved one, a pet, a home, a sense of belonging, a career, finances or stature in life. There needs to be a time to grieve, as well as a time to be cared for and held. As co-therapists in the room together, we nurture, we provide safety, and we offer perspectives. We work on the tools couples need to get the support they deserve from each other. We believe it is essential to explore shutting down and isolating and the paths to getting back to each other. We help build safe structures to support holding the memories, the loneliness, the complexity and the growth.

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Hawthorne

Grief following a loss is not only normal, but part of the healing process. Sometimes however, a subset of people experiencing normal grief find themselves drifting into a clinical depression. Dr. Levine offers supportive therapy for those experiencing normal grief and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for that subset of grieving people who grief has gotten out of control and morphed into a more severe emotional state of despair and hopelessness. Dr. Levine has over 20+ years of experience both professional and personal dealing with the grieving process. He is here to help you.

Grief Counselor

Suzette Vaughan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hawthorne

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.

Registered Psychological Assistant

Grieving is a complex process. There is no right or wrong, ideal or non-ideal formulaic process to grieving. Grief is personal and varies from person to person. Allowing oneself to grief, while not loosing perspective on life is a difficult process and often requires assistance. This is where I can be of help. I will listen and provide guidance during the process of grief.

Grief Counselor

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hawthorne

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.

Clients will experience psychological relief from their pain when they are able to participate in grief and loss counseling. Clients will also be able to properly grieve people and events in their life they were not able to before. My hope is that through therapy there will be freedom from the emotional distress they have been tolerating. I also hope that clients will be able to remain connected in a health way to those they have lost.

Grief Counselor

Anita Langer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hawthorne

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.

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

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 ....

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.
