Grief & Loss

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief & Loss

Patrice Hooke, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Coto De Caza, CA

Losing someone you love can leave you shocked, numb, sad, lonely, confused or frustrated. You cannot NOT grieve. It needs to be expressed in a healthy way so that you can heal and eventually feel joy again. One of my specialties is working with people that are grieving. It doesn't matter if the loss was recent or a long time ago. I help my clients to accept, allow, express and cope with their feelings of loss and sadness, so that it doesn't rob them of feeling the joy they can eventually have in life.

Although grief is an inevitable experience in life, coping with loss can be immobilizing. Because each individual is unique, finding the support you need to move through to a place of peace and acceptance is vital. I work with clients to help them process the pain of loss by addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that may be keeping them from resolving their pain and moving forward to a place of healing and acceptance. We work together to build a structure that both motivates and enables the healing process to begin and ultimately gives them the opportunity to overcome and triumph over grief.

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Coto De Caza, CA

Is your grief stopping you from living the fulfilling life you desire? I believe that while grief is a natural reaction to experiencing loss, the process differs for everyone. Grief can have physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. I work with individuals and families on processing grief as the difficult and eventual acceptance of loss. The loss becomes a vital part of one’s life narrative life rather than its center. Healthy grieving is a gradual process toward coping with the loss and developing a renewed interest in daily activities. I understand the devastation of loss.

Loss is part of life. Many times we can get overwhelmed by loss and start to shut down. Together we can help you to process the many complex feelings that you may experience during the grieving process and help you to learn how to accept and come to terms with loss in your life. It's important to reach out to others when you are hurting and not to isolate yourself. Finding the right therapist may the first step to beginning your healing and finding new and healthy ways to cope.

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Coto De Caza, CA

We all experience forms of grief and loss at times in our life. If we can thoroughly and deeply allow ourselves to grieve our losses, it lessens the chance loss will convert into depression. The natural tendency is to avoid this process, but we benefit greatly from submitting to it. Loss is inevitable, but we can have an influence on how we choose to handle it. One of my greatest privileges is to come alongside someone who is grappling with a profound loss in their life. It can be a time of significant transformation.
