Grief & Loss

Donald Hall, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Living in relationship with others leads to pain of loss when those relationships change or come to an end. But Grief work is helpful for more than just the death of a loved one- marital affairs, the empty nest, and retirement are other times of grief in the family life cycle. I will create a safe place for you to identify and express your feelings as you work through the stages of grief, with the goal of coming to a place of acceptance where you can once again move forward in your life.

I have worked with various types of depression, loss, hopelessness and grief since I have been in this counseling field for close to 30 years. This is what a client recently stated..." I wasn't able to function on my job. I had to have someone else do my work! I'm now doing GREAT at work! Before I was only able to sleep 2-3 hours a night. Now...My sleep's back to normal! No more thoughts of suicide and no more depression! I can't believe it! Now...I'm... EVEN... happy! I've been doing the things you've suggested and THEY"VE WORKED! I feel blessed! All this within a few visits?!"

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

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 Lake Elsinore, 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.

Donna Carollo, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Grief and loss counseling helps individuals process the loss of a loved one. Sometimes our losses feel so overwhelming, we lose our way and we are unable to use normal coping mechanisms. I work to help such individuals express their emotions and thoughts about the loss - including guilt, anger, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, relief, confusion, anger, or numbness. When words are too difficult, especially with children, I use art and play therapy.

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.

Grief & Loss

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.
