Grief & Loss

Audrey Johnson, Psy. D.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Losing a loved one is hard to deal with and talking to the right person can really make a difference. Putting those messy emotions into a wrapped up package is not the way it is meant to be. The Kubler- Ross Stages of Grief will enable you to process grief if you know what to expect. Those stages are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These stages are not ones that are necessarily done in order when dealing with the loss of your loved one. Knowing what to expect and having the right counselor to talk with will help by giving you the tools to frame and identify this loss. It is time to start learning to live life to the fullest again.

Grief is a normal reaction to any type of loss. The therapeutic objective is to help bereaved individuals recover from the emotional pain caused by the loss. Therapy goals consist of: recovery from the loss to help the client feel better, choosing a healthier approach to grieving, finding new meaning for living, reducing fears and unhealthy ways for dealing with the loss, and having the ability to enjoy memories and connecting to the deceased rather than resorting to isolation/depression. My therapeutic approach consists of educating about the stages of loss, working on issues complicating the grief process, validating emotions and teaching better coping mechanisms to handle the loss.

When we try to run away from grief, we may be able to push it down temporarily, however there becomes a time for “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Grief layers with loss. So when we attempt to run away from the grief we are actually intensifying our pain and we tend to deaden a part of us in the process. When we delay grief, which is common to many individuals, we narrow our options in life. We begin to survive rather than fully live. We must complete our psychological business with the past before we can move on and form new attachments and live life fully. Accepting losses means facing the real or the threatened losses of attachment, safety, childhood innocence and spontaneity, trust. We do not recognize the ability to play, to make...(view profile to read more)

Losing a person, relationship or beloved companion animal can leave you feeling alone, lost and scared. I can help you give voice to your emotions and begin to integrate the grief into your life in a healthy way. It's normal to grieve deeply when we love deeply. Honoring those feelings is an important part of walking the path of healing. Therapy offers those experiencing the tidal wave of emotions that are often present after a loss the opportunity to process the past, present and future in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I work together to process the loss, discuss stages of grief & begin working towards deeper healing & acceptance. We never fully "get over" the losses in our lives, but we learn how to accept them & move towards a healthier view of...(view profile to read more)

Grief & Loss

Nadia Siswanto, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Hidden Hills, CA

Losing someone you love whether it is divorce, death, or some other life transition is hard, sometimes even devastating. By the time you realize how hard it has hit you, people around you have already moved on, and you are left feeling like you should just “get over it.” But that isn’t how grief works. It isn’t something that happens in a moment, it is something that happens over time. Having a safe place to work through everything that comes up is the best way to truly grieve. When we don’t adequately deal with our losses, it can come back to bite us, sometimes even years later. I will help you grieve in a private, safe space.

Kathryn Bryan, LMFT, ATR-BC

Marriage and Family Therapist, Board-Certified Art Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Hidden Hills, CA

We experience grief not only when someone we love dies, but also when we experience any other loss like an illness, a child who is disabled, the end of a career or job, a break up, a change in our identity or the identity of someone we love, etc. To successfully cope with grief we need support and compassion and information about what to expect. One of our clinicians can provide all 3 of these necessary components to assist you with coping with your grief.

Grief and loss is a delicate life experience. I will be mindful of where you are in your grief process and meet you there. I believe it is difficult to understand grief without experiencing it directly, which I have in many different ways. I process grief and loss issues in a variety of ways. One avenue is psycho-education on the grief/loss stages. Another tool is through creativity through art and writing. Bibliotherapy, reading grief books, is another coping strategy. Finally, a grief support group where you will meet others enduring pain is another instrument to work through the pain of losing a loved one.

Grief and loss can be so very difficult to work through. Whether the loss was expected or unexpected, it still hurts. I will guide you through the process with a combination of talking and sharing, art projects, journaling projects, and mindfulness exercises. Whether you lost a family member, a friend, or a beloved pet, I can help you process the pain and feelings of loss as you find closure. And I will never tell you to "just get over it".

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Everyone experiences loss in their own way. A loss can cause feelings of grief, which are associated with feelings of sadness, guilt, regret, anger, hopelessness or a sense of feeling lost. Our treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs and your stage of grief. We will work on accepting the loss, working through the pain of the grief, and adjusting to the changes.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of Hidden Hills, CA

Grief and Loss is profound and a natural part of the life cycle. Losses occur everyday from a simple disappointment ( lunch cancelled) which is easily recoverable to a more significant and impactful loss ( a job,relationship,health or finances). I believe clients benefit from having their grief and loss witnessed by another and by having a place to process the experience and it's meaning to them. The benefit of therapy is to allow the individual to unfold and assimilate the loss which may never be "gotten over".

Having experienced several losses as a child, I know the pain that people experience when they lose a sibling, a parent/grandparent, or friend. Grief can affect many areas of your life. Feeling sad, lonely, or lost is a common experience. I want to help you work through the grief process so that you can remember your loved one and continue living the life you want.
