It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

We all encounter loss. It's and inescapable part of life. Painful as it can be, how we deal with grief and loss determines how we either thrive or live our lives always feeling the loss that once was. The inability to work through grief or loss keeps us from living fully in the moment. The ability to let go of the things we've lost is crucial to moving on. People who grieve well live well. Those who don't, don't. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

Grief & Loss is a part of every human beings' life. Grief & Loss Therapy is an intrinsic part of moving forward. The benefits of Grief & Loss Therapy is that it allows people to plunge forward in their lives. Tragedy is a part of human existence, but how and what we do with it, determines who we are. I work with people to process & metabolize grief, to leave what they don't want behind, and to keep with them that which benefits, nourishes, and enhances their life!

Sometimes loss is unbearable. If you are suffering from a depression brought on by the death of a loved one or the loss of something else immensely important to you, I can help. Maybe you've lost hope, as if there is no reason to get out of bed anymore. Psychotherapy with a caring therapist can help tremendously. Psychotherapy can help you move the stages of grief at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Grief and loss are both highly individual and intensely personal. Although we all experience grief and loss in different forms (death and non death), nothing describes the pain. Together we will create tools and awareness to process these painful life bereavements.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grief Counselor

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Palos Verdes Estates

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 and loss come in many forms and alternate to what you may read elsewhere online, the healing process is not linear nor is it fixed to a set period of time. Grief includes the death of a loved one or even the loss of something intangible - a job, a relationship, a belief. I work with individuals and couples to mourn these losses in their own time and in their own way.

I cannot make your grief disappear, though I sure wish I could. But I can help you learn to live with your loss, so that day by day you can begin to rebuild, move forward, and of course, honor what you have lost. Many clients come to me with a goal of making the grief go away; they want to fast forward to where they don't feel the pain anymore. Having worked with trauma survivors for so long (and your loss is traumatic for you) I know this approach does not work. Those emotions just get buried and they always come back. In therapy you will learn how to create a safe space to grieve without feeling overwhelmed. You will learn how to find new meaning from your experiences and find peace.
