I can help you learn how to manage and release the deep pain of grief and loss. Grief is a natural feeling that is a result of loving with all your heart. The loving action is to embrace your very difficult feelings and express the heartache you feel. I create a safe environment for you to go into these challenging feelings and learn how to let them go.

Different people respond to grief and loss in many different ways. There is no right or wrong way to deal with loss. It is important to address the feelings that come up during the grieving process, whether they be painful memories or joyous ones. People often find that they work through unresolved issues from previous losses during this process. This helps people learn how to cope with death in a way that helps them move forward while being able to think about the person they've lost in a way that does not impact them like it did before.

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.

Loss can come in so many different forms, yet the pain is there and is strong. When we hold someone or something dear to our heart and then they suddenly gone, we are often left with a hole in our heart and need to grieve that loss. Grief looks different for each person. There are 5 main stages of grief that most people will go through in an order: Denial and Isolation, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These are hard stages to walk through alone. Reach out and call one of our compassionate therapists at Mars and Venus Counseling Center who can help you to talk through each of the emotions that you experience at each stage.

People may experience many common symptoms related to grief and loss after losing a loved-one. Patients may also pass through stages of denial, anger and depression. Therapy can help an individual process these feelings and navigate these stages. A main goal when working with grief and loss may be to reach the period of acceptance (the time of closure). Talk therapy with a professional can be a very healthy approach to dealing with loss.

Grief Counselor

Jonathan Schnapp, LCSW

Psychotherapist

Grief is a reaction to loss and it takes time. It is a process of learning how to live in a world that has changed in fundamental ways. When we lose a loved one, or a relationship ends, we have to relearn how to be with ourselves, our families and our friends. We must cope and manage painful feelings, and create new systems of meaning that allow us to live with joy and purpose despite our losses. Treatment can help you negotiate the various stages and painful emotions that are part of this process.

Grief Counselor

Edgard Danielsen, PhD, LP

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Oakland

The pain you experience after losing a loved one is an intense human experience that could make you feel abandoned, hopeless, and incapable of moving forward in life. In addition, sometimes there is grief connected to losing something: a job, an opportunity, a past that will not come back, a country you left behind. I can offer an empathic ear and listening to you as you ponder important questions at this point in your life: What does your grief say? What are the fears that accompany your grief and loss? Is there a way to move forward in life knowing that the present and future will be different because someone or something won't be there with you?

Grief Counselor

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Oakland

Each individual's response to grief and loss is unique, and their response to different losses will have similarities and differences. There are several different periods of grief/loss in which people may seek help (before the loss, at the time of the loss, during the first few months after the loss and during later times). Some people seek to find ways that they can recognize and cope with the loss, some are concerned about how they are reacting, some seek help in dealing with others affected (especially children). It is possible to move through periods of grief and loss back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you through that process.

Grief Counselor

Kenneth Jedding, LCSW, MA

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Oakland

I've treated many people who were dealing with the death of a loved one or with a breakup. It's a difficult time of life, but an important one. The science of grief therapy has changed. A death is no longer thought of solely in terms of the need to "move on," necessarily, but to understand who one is the face of the loss, in terms of one's own sense of identity, and plans. As for breakups are hard, but ripe, and therapy often involves reviewing what happened, and coming to an understanding of who one was and who one needs to be, to propel one to what comes next. .

Grief Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Oakland

Grief and loss are certainly very difficult to deal with, but sooner or later, it comes to all of us. I meet my clients right where they are in the process of their grieving, and sit with them in that space. I help people to walk through the feelings and stay with them through the process. I create a safe space where clients can be with all the emotions they are experiencing. I am very patient as individuals walk through their grief at their own pace.

Grief Counselor

Ariella Soffer, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

Within driving distance of Oakland

People seek support following the loss of a parent, grandparent, friend, child, loved one, or a pet. Sometimes it's struggles surrounding the loss of an identity, perhaps a breakup, or an athletic or physical injury that is leading to the loss of goals you had for yourself. No matter the type of loss, getting support during this time can be particularly helpful. Together we can work through the stages of grief, learn from your loss, and rebuild your sense of self so that you can move forward in your life.
