Loss is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult an experience when we lose someone close to us. The grief we feel at that moment can surround us completely, permeating every aspect of our lives. We can sometimes feel the grief we’re experiencing in our bodies, see it change our relationships and impact our work. It filters through into our daily thoughts, our vision for the future and our remembrances of the past. Grief is a natural and necessary process, but sometimes having support can help. Story is a powerful tool; maybe one of our most powerful. Telling your personal story of loss, as an individual and a family, is an important part of the work I do. It helps you develop the positive coping skills to manage your sadness,...(view profile to read more)

When we lose someone we love, the emotional and physical pain is difficult to explain. Studies show that grief and loss for many people are represented by real pain often in the area of the heart. This is where the term a "broken heart" originates. In many other countries when a person loses a loved one, they take several weeks away from work to process and handle the intense emotions from their loss. In the U.S. we are generally "allowed" 3 working days to "get over it!". Pain from the loss of a loved one takes time to heal. If you are mourning and need to talk with someone who understands and can help, please call to make an appt. Jeannette York, 818.200.9513 4405 Riverside Burbank,$150.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Chaplain & Grief Counselor

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

As a hosptial chaplain and licensed therapist, I have years of experience working with people who are experiencing the loss of someone they loved who has died. When someone we love dies, we are never prepared for this. It is like losing an arm, how do you cope when your arm is gone? As a grief therapist, you will benefit from my years of experience and caring support helping you to grieve your loss. Counseling will help you to properly say goodbye and process the pain and feelings of anger, depression, and acceptance. You also will benefit from learning new ways to cope and adjust so that you do not remain stuck in loneliness.

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.

Grieving a loss can feel overwhelming and isolating. Whether you are grieving a recent loss or need to process a loss from your past, a safe space to freely express your thoughts and feelings can be healing. Children's response to loss is framed by their developmental capacities. For this reason, children may process a loss and then need to reprocess at a later stage of development. Therapy provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to process their loss in age appropriate ways.

Grief & Loss

Olga Aguilar, M.A. LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

My approach to Grief & Loss is for the client to be aware of the 7 stages of grief and to have them understand that their feelings about their loss are normal. Many times when someone close to us dies, we question whether not crying, crying too much, or perhaps feeling angry at the world is OK. These are all normal feelings and reactions people have to loss. Once a client understands this, they can continue to grieve without having any questions about their own actions or feelings.

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

I am very mindful of the pain that clients are experiencing when they have lost a loved one, or are experiencing grief over upcoming loss of a person or of a dream that they have had for their life. The loss of a relationship produces feelings of grief that can be difficult to manage and work through. I help patients focus on the feelings that surround "grief": anger, denial, depression, guilt that they may be burdened by, etc. I help them develop new coping skills so they can move toward acceptance of the loss at the same time as they rebuild hope for themselves in this new reality without the person or relationship they have lost. Together with the client we redefine a hopeful future.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

When we lose we anything we love, whether it be a person, a thing, a life situation or something we relied on, two things need to happen in therapy. First, we need a place to express the sadness of what we have lost. I give clients the safety, support, and guidance to the feel powerful emotions that come with any significant loss in life. Secondly, everything significant to us has a “dream” attached to it. A vision of what it means to us in the present and a view of what it will mean to us in the future. When we lose that thing, we lose the dream. Grief work is about grieving the actual loss and also dealing with the dream that went along with it. I know how to help clients with both of t....

Jennifer Flores, M.Ed., MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost. I will join you as you process your experience and assist in integrating the past, present and future during this very difficult time.

Grief & Loss

Anita Langer, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Crescenta, CA

Grief can often feel debilitating. However, not everyone grieves the same. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or relationship, the emotional pain may cause anger, fear, worry or despair. It might cause you to question your identity, safety, faith or even your existence. Don’t suffer alone. In therapy I offer a safe space for you to process all of your emotions, identify your core beliefs and practice healthy coping strategies to help you on your journey to healing.
