Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person goes through. It is so important to be able to honor the relationship in a space where one can speak freely, tell stories, and attribute meaning to the connection. I am interested in exploring the impact and legacies of significant relationships and how clients can integrate them into their current lives.

While we are capable of experiencing joy, expansiveness, and meaning in our lifetime, we are not always prepared to face the trauma and reality of loss when we lose someone that has been such an integral part of our lives. Even well-meaning folks may try to comfort the bereaved by a platitude, or explanation why the loss has occurred-which brings little or no comfort. Those with whom I have worked individually-have taught me the value of being present and not "explaining away" their grief. Grief work in a group setting fosters healing and connects those whose experience are profoundly shared by others to resemble and reflect our human condition.

At some point, everyone experiences the grief and loss of something or someone valuable in life. The key is knowing how to grieve one's loss. Most people don't know how to grieve and our culture does not allow for it. Entering therapy after a loss of a job, relationship, or a loved one can help heal the wounds and help the individual move on with life.

Kristen Caron, MA, MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist, Eating Disorder Specialist

We all will inevitably experience loss- i.e., the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship, possibly significant life transitions. Grief and loss work focuses on developing effective and healthy coping mechanisms while moving through often challenging emotional states. Often individuals utilize maladaptive coping strategies, such as substances, alcohol and/or food to help minimize painful feelings. My philosophy is that while there are identifiable stages of grief and loss, they are not experienced sequentially. Navigating often confusing and competing emotions is necessary to ultimately heal.

Are you grieving from the loss of a loved one? Are you grieving the loss of an important part of your life, such a your job, your health or a relationship? You may be feeling tired, confused, somewhat lost at sea. You may wonder if you are normal. It is normal to experience a period of profound sadness. It is normal to experience a period of disorientation, as you come to realize the full extent of your loss, and that you are not reoriented into a new reality yet. Be assured, grief is not a mental illness. It is normal. The purpose of therapy is to provide you with support, without judgement, as you gradually find your way into a "new normal" (whatever that may be).

Grief Counselor

Jennifer Flores, M.Ed., MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost. I will join you as you process your experience and assist in integrating the past, present and future during this very difficult time.

Grieving and losing loved ones can be such a difficult time. Everyone grieves differently, and you partner may even pull away. Sometimes your friends don't know what to say, so they don't call or come around. This can leave you feeling alone, sad, angry, and depressed. You need someone to talk to and support you during this difficult. The worst thing you can do is stuff those feelings down. They will find their way to surface one way or another. Hopefully, with caring, supportive counseling, you can express yourself and get through this difficult time.
