Grief Counselor

Jonathan Eli Herrick, jonathan herrick

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

2048 Green St, san francisco, California

Having lost a son, I know from personal experience about grief and how to help people work through the stages of grief and loss. It is never easy, and I always approach the person seeking help with tremendous gentleness and compassion. Since everyone has a different response to loss I find that the best counseling is collaborative, finding a way together through what sometimes seems insurmountable. I also make myself available by phone on a daily basis. Especially in the early phase of grief such support can make a tremendous difference. Depending on the client's comfort level, I offer a wider, spiritual perspective and non-sectarian spiritual practices as well.

Grief Counselor

Kyle Corsiglia, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2171 Union Street, San Francisco, California

Learning to feel and manage the variety of feelings that come up around death, loss, and endings is an integral part of life. I will support and guide you through this process. It can be very healing and renewing to consciously and creatively meet one's grief and loss. I will help you to reflect on and release the past, to open simply and directly to the loss, and to find peace and grounding in your deeper connection to the truth.

Peter Bernhardt, MFT

Marriage Family Therapist

1197 Valencia, San Francisco, California

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.

Grief Counselor

Jay Reid, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

381 Bush Street, Suite 503, San Francisco, California

Losing a loved one or relationship can feel overwhelming. Where our days used to be enriched by someone, we are only left with their memory. The process of grieving requires support, patience, and resilience. If you find it difficult to concentrate, find pleasure in most activities, or get out of bed in the morning then therapy may be an important ally in learning to live again with loss.

Grief Counselor

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

1795 Union Street at Octavia, San Francisco, California

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.

Grief Counselor

Natalie M. Mills, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 1055, San Francisco, California

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.

Grief Counselor

Myra Bernecker, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

2354 Post Street, San Francisco, California

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.

Grief Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Francisco, California

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Grief Counselor

Erika Shershun, MA, MFT

Somatic Psychotherapist

465 California Street, San Francisco, California

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 Counselor

Zak Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

423 Gough St, San Francisco, California

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.

Grief Counselor

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1195 Valencia Street, Suite 4, San Francisco, California

Each of us will experience grief and loss within our lives. Some losses can feel so huge that it can seem impossible to move on. I believe that each loss we experience can stir up emotions and feelings related to past losses. I provide a safe environment for you to explore your feelings of grief and loss. 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.

Grief Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

3150 18th St., San Francisco, California

There is a deep instinctual basis for our strong need for other people in our lives. This need to be connected to others goes against what were taught; that happiness comes from being at peace with being able to be alone. It's simply not true. Peace of mind and happiness comes through our connection to community, especially that one special partner. When we lose someone close to us it can be overwhelming and devastating. This can cause us to have thoughts of despair and a belief we can't go on. I can help you feel willing to healing and start living again.
