Grief can be an overwhelming process that takes time and support to work through. I offer a safe place where you have permission to grieve the loss and permission to take the steps to continue with your own life. Grief counseling also teaches coping skills to help you get through the most difficult days of the grieving process. How to honor your loved one and how to move through anniversary dates and learn to live again.

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!

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 and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

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.

Everyone experiences loss at some point in their lives. Grieving is a natural response to loss. Sometimes, though, a person's ability to grieve is thwarted by life stressors, resulting in feelings of guilt, confusion and depression. There is no right way to grieve, but it is important not to avoid it so you can begin your healing. If you have lost a significant other: a partner, parent, friend or pet, therapy is an safe place and an effective way to begin or continue your grieving process.

Losing someone or something close to you is often the most difficult event that people face in their lives. Often these events happen unexpectedly which adds to the confusion and hurt.

When we lose we anything we love, whether it be a person, a thing, a life situation or something we relied on, two things need to happen in therapy. First, we need a place to express the sadness of what we have lost. I give clients the safety, support, and guidance to the feel powerful emotions that come with any significant loss in life. Secondly, everything significant to us has a “dream” attached to it. A vision of what it means to us in the present and a view of what it will mean to us in the future. When we lose that thing, we lose the dream. Grief work is about grieving the actual loss and also dealing with the dream that went along with it. I know how to help clients with both of t....

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Topanga

My years of experience as a psychologist has confirmed that there is no particular timetable for overcoming grief whether from a death of relative, partner, friend, pet or the more symbolic losses of empty nest, end of career, decisions not to have children or marry. I provide a safe environment for patients to explore the many feelings associated with grieving on their own terms and timetable.

Although loss is an inevitable part of life, it can be debilitating. I provide a safe environment where you can process your painful feelings so that you can find satisfaction and pleasure in your life again. Many people can feel paralyzed after the loss of a loved one. Often times this paralysis is a conscious or unconscious attempt to hold on to the one that was lost. Moving forward can feel unbearable, like you are losing your loved one all over again. I can help you move forward and still feel a deep connection to your loved one so that you can go on to live a life that feels fulfilling and worth living.
