For a new short term, effective approach to Psychotherapy, give me a call or email, kevin@kevinflemingphd.com
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 & Loss

Katherine Jewett, MA MFTI

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within Driving Distance of Brentwood, CA

Grief is one of the most universal experiences we have. It is also one of the most painful. Grief can occur as the result of loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a job or a role, even loss of our hopes and dreams. There are many brands of grief and each can feel crushing! While each of us responds to grief in different ways, there are techniques that help us to heal from loss. Therapy can help you to manage the emotional overwhelm that accompanies grief, not so that we can forget what we've lost, but so that we can manage that loss in a more functional way.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

I believe grief is not a linear process. It is a very personal experience. Each person's journey through grief is unique and should be honored. My approach in therapy is to meet you where you are and partner with you to help you cope with this very painful experience. My specialties include perinatal loss, pregnancy, SIDS, newborn and infant. I have also worked with families who have lost a child or a parent. I do sibling work as well.

Relationship grief and loss can feel much the same as the grief and loss we experience through the death of a loved one. We progress through the same stages; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally, acceptance. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help you as you work through these stages and develop a greater understanding of your self and your relationship to others. Whether you are mourning the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a relationship, therapy can provide a compassionate and supportive place for you to heal from the pain and learn to grow and be happy again.

Experiencing a loss, whether is a death or a relationship, can be one of the most difficult and life changing events one might go through in life. Grief comes in waves and can be overwhelming. Having a safe place to go express this grief and experience it can be very healing. Understanding how you might experience the grieving and loss process can be helpful when it feels like it is consuming you. Therapy can be a start to working through some of the feelings, emotions and thoughts about your loss. I will be able to support you through this process.

Daryl Temkin, Daryl Temkin

Ph.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Marriage, Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Brentwood, CA

I have taught and practiced grief counseling for over 24 years. One thing I observed early on is that people who share their grief with others progress through the stages of grief and get much relief, while those who try to grieve on their own seem to just stay locked into the early stages of suffering for many years. I offer compassionate and loving support through the process. Loving, gentle support can make all the difference.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grief and loss is often complicated by a painful, irrational belief that you could have done something different to prevent it. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), clients can experience relief from the tremendous burden they carry of what they should have/could have/ought to have done differently. Through the processing of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories, clients feel a greater sense of relief and acceptance.

Grief & Loss

Margaret Petersen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Brentwood, CA

When we encounter real tragedy in our lives, few of us have readily available tools for the ongoing pain that accompanies mourning, grieving, and loss. Tapping into authentic moments of grief can help us move beyond the pain and expand our idea of who we are as we grieve, yet doing this alone can be overwhelming and even scary at times. Grief work is critical to healing, and having a compassionate and seasoned guide to support the journey can be the means to feel, grow, learn, and ultimately heal from the grief of loss. Please know that you do not have to suffer alone. Grief can open many old wounds and you so deserve not to have to do this alone. I'm here, I can help, and I care.

Grief & Loss

Meri Levy, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #88213

Within Driving Distance of Brentwood, CA

Losing a loved one is hard in so many ways. In addition to missing them, we often find ourselves evaluating our relationship with them and what remained unsaid. Grief follows its own course, and friends and family may not understand your own individual process of grieving. I support clients in experiencing their grief, working through unresolved relationship issues, and in their own time, coming to terms with what they have lost.
