Grief is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

Grief & Loss

Philip Kolba, MA


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.

Marriage and Family Therapist

2620 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95816

I tell my clients that everyone grieves in their own, unique way, and that there is no "right way" to grieve. Sooner or later, we all face major losses of loved ones, and the grief involved can feel devastating. I provide loving support and help my clients connect with grief and loss support groups and other supports. We explore what the loss means for my client and ways to honor the memories of the loved one. We also explore and process unfinished, incomplete, or difficult losses that involve anger, shame, resentment, and deep disappointment.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

1104 Corporate way, Sacramento, CA 95831

Have you lost a loved one to death, divorce, or estrangement? Everyone goes through loss at one point. The loss of a loved one can come suddenly or as a result of a long standing sickness or situation and still it may upend loved ones lives. I work with clients to move past regrets and overwhelming sadness to a place of honoring the memory and redefining ones future in the absence of a loved one.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 Marriage and Family Therapist, MFC # 53648

2000 L Street, Suite 150, Sacramento, CA 95811

I believe we are meant to love. But as loving human beings, the loss of important people in our lives is one of our most difficult challenges. Let me help you move through your grief, staying gently with you as you mourn. Grief has it's own timeline, with healing occurring quietly and inconsistently. Over time and with support, you will begin to experience hope, and even joy again.

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1722 Professional Dr, Sacramento, CA 95825

I help people struggling with grief and loss issues by creating a safe, supportive environment for them to talk about what has happened to them. People tend to experience mental health problems when they are unable or do not allow themselves to experience their emotions surrounding grief and loss. Often times people in our lives try to be supportive but do not know how, so people end up telling us that there is a certain way to grieve or that we need to "just get over it". Everybody has their own grieving process. It is my job to help you open up to your emotions in a way that does not feel like they are going to swallow you whole, and to help you grieve in your own way and in your own time.

Ivy Griffin, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Director of Thrive

1614 X Street, Suite A, Sacramento, CA 95818

When we are grieving, we need time and space to experience and process our feelings, some of which may be very intense. Often, people feel very alone or weighed down by the pain of their loss. I offer a warm, supportive environment where clients can feel safe to openly express their grief and to honor the memory of their loved one, while they start to heal and move forward in their own life.

Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.
