We are so lucky to have people in our lives that we love and whom have made an impact. It is a painful thing to have to say goodbye to that person. It is a process which is unique to each individual. No one can determine how long you will grieve for or exactly how you will navigate the grieving stages. With understanding, empathy and some tools to help you through the suffering, you can move through grief in a healthy way. If you feel you are struggling with grief then getting professional help is the next step.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.

I help client recover from losses. I emphasize BEING WITH people grief and allowing them to feel their feeling fully. There is a huge difference grieving alone vs grieving with another person who cares about you. I believe that when grief is shared, one can gradually transcend it. Finding the right person to help you is a lot to do with chemistry. Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

Grief and loss can leave a person feeling depressed, vulnerable, angry and abandoned, with nowhere to turn and no one to turn to. It can help tremendously, to have a skilled therapist, who understands the process of what you are going through, and can help guide you through that process. There are five stages of grief, and it can be very beneficial to know these stages and recognize where one is at, as they head down the pathway toward healing.

Grief & loss is often felt with the death of a loved one. It can also be experienced from the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your home. The grieving process can be complicated. You may love someone who suffers from a significant memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. You may feel guilty for grieving the loss of the person you knew before the illness because you feel you should be grateful he/she is still alive. As a person loses their memory, an important part of who they are gets lost. It is appropriate for this grieving process to begin before death. I would love to support you through whatever loss you are currently experiencing.

We all suffer loss in our lives. That's just a reality of existence. Grief, unresolved, can greatly interfere with our ability to live our lives and be all that we can be. I help people to find resolution to all of life's losses and disappointments by listening and guiding them to identify how their life is being affected. I help them find a new perspective through the use of healing methods such as imagery, EMDR and a variety of other therapeutic interventions. Life can be good and meaningful, no matter what or who has been taken away. You can make sense of it all and move on.

Every one of us experiences grief and loss at some point in our lives. It is part of the human experience. How we manage is what sets us apart from one another. Grief and/or loss is not always connected to losing a person to death, it could also be losing an opportunity, a career, a stage of your life, a relationship or coming to terms that your life at this time is different than the life you planned. I can help you manage feelings that arise, and make sense of the event that has or is triggering your grief. I can accompany you in those dark moments and help you regain your mental equilibrium to find your way back to happiness.

The loss of a family member or a close friend can be a traumatic event. It's common to have a mixture of feelings at this time as well as difficulty picturing how our life can go on without our loved one. In therapy it can be helpful to reminisce about our experiences with them and articulate the feelings we have, no matter what the feelings or experiences are. All while in a private and safe environment

Associate Clinical Social Worker

"Aren't you over that yet?" "Is that still bothering you?" I dislike those phrases very much! Everyone grieves differently and no two losses are the same. A loss can be characterized by a move, having to re-home a pet, changing jobs, and of course the loss of a loved one. One might feel angry while another might feel relieved. Someone might need a month off of work whereas another only a couple of days. It is okay and you can heal. I can help you sort through your feelings and you can feel better.

Navigating the pain of grief is an individual process, which can result in a myriad of social/cognitive/physical/emotional symptoms. Each person’s experience is unique, and should be treated as such. Treatment helps to understand the complexity of the loss, in addition how to manage its symptoms. Many people around you have unrealistic expectations of how you should handle, or can be uncomfortable with normal grief reactions. The support you receive at this difficult time should be consistent to help you to manage the wide variety of feelings you will have for weeks and months following such a major loss in your life.

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.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....
