Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.

Grief is a normal part of loving and losing the person you loved. For many, however, it can become overwhelming and even lead to symptoms of depression. Or maybe you think you should be over it by now, and can't understand why you're not. For five years, I volunteered with Hospice, helping people with complicated bereavement issues to come to terms with the loss of the one who had been so important in their lives. You don't have to carry this alone. Get the support and relief you need as you say good-bye to your loved one so that you can move forward again in your life.

From death of a loved one to loss of a significant relationship, processing loss is a painful and lonely journey...especially done alone. Often, one of the aspects of loss is that there is compounding guilt for one's feelings. Normalizing and supporting my client's experience during a wrenching time is something I enjoy. The length of the process varies greatly from person to person, but support is paramount.

Grief is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

Each experience of grief is unique, complex, and personal, and I will tailor treatment to meet your specific needs. I will help you find different ways to maintain healthy connections with the deceased through memory, reflection, ritual, or dialogue about the deceased and with the deceased. I will help you view your grief and loss with curiosity and without judgment, in an effort to understand and heal. I can help you recognize and access your inner strength, autonomy, and capacity to step back into life after loss.

Grief can occur from losing a relationship, losing a loved one or many other transitions or losses. Life seems to go on around you, but the hurt and sadness can take a long time to recover from. Family can only help for so long. Getting professional help is a step toward the beginnings of recovery. Overcoming grief is about processing your emotions, honoring the loss and creating small steps to a new life. Timing is individual and not everyone grieves in the same way. I would be honored to help you start feeling better.

Losing someone close to you is difficult for anyone to go through. We all experience grief in different ways, which means there is no one-size-fits all approach to loss. If you have experienced a loss in your life, my approach to grief and loss will help you to overcome your struggles and move forward with your life. You will leave your sessions with a better outlook and more insight to your situation.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Grief Counselor

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of West Sacramento

I tell my clients that everyone grieves in their own, unique way, and that there is no "right way" to grieve. Sooner or later, we all face major losses of loved ones, and the grief involved can feel devastating. I provide loving support and help my clients connect with grief and loss support groups and other supports. We explore what the loss means for my client and ways to honor the memories of the loved one. We also explore and process unfinished, incomplete, or difficult losses that involve anger, shame, resentment, and deep disappointment.

Grief Counselor

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I help people struggling with grief and loss issues by creating a safe, supportive environment for them to talk about what has happened to them. People tend to experience mental health problems when they are unable or do not allow themselves to experience their emotions surrounding grief and loss. Often times people in our lives try to be supportive but do not know how, so people end up telling us that there is a certain way to grieve or that we need to "just get over it". Everybody has their own grieving process. It is my job to help you open up to your emotions in a way that does not feel like they are going to swallow you whole, and to help you grieve in your own way and in your own time.

Grieving is a process that is unique and different for each individual. Sometimes we put it off because we are afraid that once we face it, it will never end! Grieving, while difficult, can be a sacred time to reflect, accept, and recover. You can start healing and moving forward. I can help you deal with the painful losses you've experienced. Although loss cannot be reversed, learning how to accept and cope with grief can be tremendously empowering. I will support you in a gentle, sensitive manner as we honor your experience and work toward peaceful resolution of your pain.

Life is full of many losses, the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, illness, loss of home, loss of friendships. With loss comes grief .We may not grieve as hard or as much when moving to a new home as we do when we have lost a loved one but we do still grieve. When we grieve we go through many stages, such as denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance. This process is unique to each individual and is unique to the kind of loss experienced. In therapy I will support you as you process often times very painful feelings related to your loss. Therapy will give you the support you deserve and in your own time you will be able to move forward in your own life.
