Somatic Psychotherapist

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.

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.

Although grief and loss are universal human experiences, there are many factors which can make it difficult to process. I offer a safe space to explore all that you are going through and feeling. Expressing all your complex feelings is healthy and can be so relieving. Repressed grief can make you physically or emotionally ill. Many losses are complicated with feelings of anger, guilt or the pain and confusion of unfinished business. Sometimes, when the loss is unexpected, shock can get in the way. Personal issues around ability or willingness to feel or show vulnerability can make it hard to grieve. I have many years of experience in offering safety and support to grieving clients.

I help men cope with grief and loss, to find meaning in their pain, and to move forward in their lives. My clinical work over the past 10 years has taught me that the way men cope with grief can sometimes be different than women. Cultural ideals and "male training" can lead many men to suffer alone in stoic silence. But you are not alone, and you do not have to be. The benefit of psychotherapy with a therapist who specializes in psychotherapy with men, is that you are much more likely to feel heard and understood in a way that is right for you. Over my career, I have been honored help many men transform themselves. I am happy to offer a free initial phone consultation. Give me a call today.

Grief Counselor

Cressida Forester, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist PSY18902

Within driving distance of San Anselmo

Sometimes you feel as if nobody could know what your grief is like, or that nobody could help you with your loss. Sometimes nothing could ever replace what you've lost, yet you have to find a way to go on with your life. You may wish to just be alone, yet also wish someone could just be with you through this time, letting you be silent, letting you talk, whatever you need, giving you all the time that you need. You have to find your own way through grief and loss, in your own time. But you don't have to be alone as you do that. I will sit with you, bringing my warmth, experience, and understanding to help you find your way through to life and the future you can't yet imagine.

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult life experiences and it is also often an invitation towards growth, greater understanding, and deep healing. I have learned a tremendous amount about grief and loss from my clients as well as from my own experiences of losing loved ones. I know that grief is complex and the process is unique to each individual and I also know that making sense of the loss of a loved one together with a trusted other can bring peace and healing to an aching heart. If you have been faced with grief and loss, I am here to help.

Grief Counselor

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

I have extensive experience working with clients who are grieving and dealing with loss. I worked with people who were affected by the attacks on 9/11 in NYC. I also work with folks who are experiencing a breakup and are having a difficult time transitioning and adjusting to the breakup. I have extensive experience of working within the LGBTQ community.

Grief Counselor

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

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.

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.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Losing a loved one changes you forever. While grief is a natural part of the life cycle, everyone can benefit from the emotional support psychotherapy provides. I can help you move through the grieving process so it does not turn into social isolation and depression. You don't have to go though this alone. I provide a safe place for you to sort through your sadness and loss. I can help you gather strength to move forward.

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.
