It can be a tremendous challenge to return to our daily life following a loss, and grieving does not have a time limit or expiration date. While our society may not be built to allow space for processing loss or grieving, in therapy with me you can expect to find all the space you need to move through your own process at your own pace. With my unwavering support, you will feel encouraged to authentically explore your grieving needs and to honor the gravity of your loss.

Grieving from a profound loss becomes a marker in time from which life may never feel the same again. From personal and professional experience I've found there is a necessary freedom to deeply grieve in the safe company of someone other than family and friends. Having a time and space devoted to getting through such a transition with a professional can ease pain and allow for the experience to integrate into living a life after loss.

Have you recently experienced a death, the loss of a partner, a friend or pet? Grief, anger and difficulty functioning are normal but very challenging responses to loss. Most people tell themselves they must reach closure, but this takes more time than most people realize. Don't isolate or just tell yourself to be strong- lets work it through together.

There are endless opportunities for loss in this lifetime- the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, a pet, lost potential, loss of a part of yourself through trauma. Whether your loss is recent or long-passed, it can have crippling affects on your relationships, your sense of security, and your sense of self. The loss you experience can leave you feeling lost and the grief that accompanies this can feel insurmountable. It's easy to become fearful that this will never change, to sink into the hopelessness you feel. It seems like an impossible task, but if you're on this site you have hope. Together, you and I can build on that hope.

In addition to working with grief from the loss of a loved one, I also help people experience and heal grief that is more subtle. Early life neglect, abandonment, as well as deep regrets about unfulfilled potentials or about hurts we have caused others- can be potent forms of grief. When not recognized or experienced, loss can be expressed as irritability, restlessness, addictions, frustrations, lethargy and other physical/emotional symptoms. Identifying loss and developing the capacity to experience and express grief (pain, sadness, remorse..) is a powerful healing- and can transform our self and our body.

Children express grief differently from adults and their grief can look different at various ages. For example an infant will experience the loss of a significant caregiver through his or her senses (father's cologne, mother's skin, nanny's voice). A school aged child may ask a lot of questions or not seem affected at all from the outside. While many children can be resilient, they are often the "forgotten mourners." Unresolved grief can lead to problems down the road.

If you're grieving, you know too well how flat and empty the world can seem. Grief is a natural process that is something to be lived through rather than avoided, but there is a graceful way of doing so, beginning with self-compassion and opening your heart to the range of feelings you may experience. As a grief counselor I can help you through this experience—help you process your loss without getting mired in despair. In addition to simply being able to sit with you in your pain, I'll offer guidance through this territory, and help you explore the meaning of your loss, in a way that will allow you to gain nurturance, succor and support from their memory.

Loss, whether sudden or not, is often one of life's most challenging experiences. Many people enter therapy with me grieving the loss of a family member, or the end of a relationship, or a difficult change in a work situation. The grief that can follow such losses has its own rhythm and timeline; as much as we would like to "get over" our pain, it is often our effort to do so that stunts our own healing. As a therapist, I have seen again and again that the more we can lovingly attend to our suffering, the more we are able to move through it, and grow as people in the process. I have helped many people find their way through the grief process to a place of healing and peace.

The good news is that there is effective therapy for grief, loss, and bereavement in Oakland. Therapy begins with having a safe place to be able to talk about how you really feel, with someone who can accept your pain without judgement or fear and with whom you can be yourself. EMDR and somatic interventions are excellent for those times when grief, loss, and bereavement involve complicated grief, anxiety, depression, and trauma. CBT offers research based help for depression and irrational thoughts about grief, loss, and bereavement. I offer these therapies to people who are grieving in Oakland. Call 415-820-1487 for a free phone consultation.

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.

Experiences of grief and loss may occur in small doses on a regular basis. But some losses are too intense to handle on your own. When a major loss occurs, whether the death of a loved one, or the loss of a job or relationship, you may benefit greatly from contact with a psychotherapist. I am experienced at helping others get through these difficult and painful times. Suffering is unavoidable in this world. But you do have a choice about whether to do it alone. Let me know if you would like to talk about getting some counseling to help you through a difficult time.

By making links between the past and the present and deeply listening and interpreting the possible origins of your grief we can open up the space needed for you to move forward.
