Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists

2717 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90034

We may all experience the grief and loss of a loved one, a pet, a home, a sense of belonging, a career, finances or stature in life. There needs to be a time to grieve, as well as a time to be cared for and held. As co-therapists in the room together, we nurture, we provide safety, and we offer perspectives. We work on the tools couples need to get the support they deserve from each other. We believe it is essential to explore shutting down and isolating and the paths to getting back to each other. We help build safe structures to support holding the memories, the loneliness, the complexity and the growth.

Grief can hit you like a ton of bricks or creep up on you day by day. Its course is unpredictable and its pace needs to be honored. Most of all clients who have experienced grief and loss come to counseling needing a safe, accepting space in which they can express all of their feelings. They need to know that their counselor can handle the full range of those feelings--despair, anger, terror, gratitude, love--whatever is coming up on any given day. They need not to be pushed but to be honored as they move through life's greatest challenge.

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.

Licensed Psychotherapist

6310 San Vicente Blvd.Ste 410, Los Angeles, CA 90048

Losing someone can be hard, and you might need a place to go where you can talk freely about what you think and feel. You might think that you should be "further along" in the process than where you are. No two people grieve alike, and it's going to take you as long as it takes, and not one moment less . I help people to accept and go through their grief process, and I see grief as a testament to the love and caring that you had for the person you've lost. However, we don't just grieve for people who have died. We grieve for lost opportunities, beloved pets we've lost, and relationships that are over.

Everyone experiences loss at some point in their lives. Grieving is a natural response to loss. Sometimes, though, a person's ability to grieve is thwarted by life stressors, resulting in feelings of guilt, confusion and depression. There is no right way to grieve, but it is important not to avoid it so you can begin your healing. If you have lost a significant other: a partner, parent, friend or pet, therapy is an safe place and an effective way to begin or continue your grieving process.

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.

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Cedars-Sinai Medical Tower, 8631 West 3rd Street (suite 1100-E), Los Angeles, CA 90048

Grief following a loss is not only normal, but part of the healing process. Sometimes however, a subset of people experiencing normal grief find themselves drifting into a clinical depression. Dr. Levine offers supportive therapy for those experiencing normal grief and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for that subset of grieving people who grief has gotten out of control and morphed into a more severe emotional state of despair and hopelessness. Dr. Levine has over 20+ years of experience both professional and personal dealing with the grieving process. He is here to help you.

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....

Grief & Loss is a part of every human beings' life. Grief & Loss Therapy is an intrinsic part of moving forward. The benefits of Grief & Loss Therapy is that it allows people to plunge forward in their lives. Tragedy is a part of human existence, but how and what we do with it, determines who we are. I work with people to process & metabolize grief, to leave what they don't want behind, and to keep with them that which benefits, nourishes, and enhances their life!

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.

Everyone grieves in their own way. You shouldn't feel you are out-of-control because you grieve in unexpected ways or for a longer peroid. Cultural and religious differences in grieving exist which are perfectly acceptible. A therapist must be sensitive to these issues. Grief is said to involve denial, anger, bargaining, deperession and acceptance. We will monitor your reactions to validate those feelings in session. Unhealthy reactions to loss do occur; self-medicating, and isolating oneslef for long periods, experiencing full-blown depression -- these behaviors, can prove detrimental. We will monitor your behaviors and mood changes and deal with negative conditions, should they occur.

Loss and grief are natural occurrences in life. However, they can be major intrusions in the quality of our life if we are too caught up in them. They can also interfere if we are so defended against them that they limit our ability to function or impair our daily interactions with others. Sometimes, what we have lost is not a person but a job or a situation in our life that has had great meaning for us, like our self-image. That can feel devastating. Just like losing a person, these events must be grieved if we are to be able to move on. Grieving doesn’t mean forgetting or being weak. It’s a sign of love and strength. Together, we can work through the grief so you can move on.

When we talk about grief, most people first think of death: mourning a loved one who has passed on. But a deep sense of loss and grief can be triggered by other life events where "death" is more metaphorical than actual. Clearly, the loss of any meaningful relationship through separation, divorce, or betrayal fits into that category. As does the loss of a position in life you held dear, or a role you relied on in defining yourself. Even the completion of a demanding creative project can leave you feeling empty or despairing. In any of these situations (and so many others) I can help you come to terms with a loss, respect it, gain meaning from it, and, eventually, move beyond it.

Grief & Loss

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

We all encounter loss. It's and inescapable part of life. Painful as it can be, how we deal with grief and loss determines how we either thrive or live our lives always feeling the loss that once was. The inability to work through grief or loss keeps us from living fully in the moment. The ability to let go of the things we've lost is crucial to moving on. People who grieve well live well. Those who don't, don't. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.
