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 is a natural response to loss and it takes many forms. Everyone grieves differently and contrary to popular belief, there is no set amount of time grief is "supposed to last." I acknowledge a client's unique response to grief in a sensitive and compassionate way while letting him/her know that his/her response is normal. I help clients recognize and understand the wide range of feelings that come with loss. I assist clients in developing healthy coping strategies based on their innate strengths.

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

Have you recently experienced a death, the loss of a partner, a friend or pet? Grief, anger and difficulty functioning are normal but very challenging responses to loss. Most people tell themselves they must reach closure, but this takes more time than most people realize. Don't isolate or just tell yourself to be strong- lets work it through together.

Grief looks differently for different people. Grief needs its own time and can't be forced. Many contemporary cultures have forgotten their collective ways to face loss and to support grieving people through ritual and community. Therapy provides an ongoing compassionate relationship, a rock for you to return to again and again with your process. An ear that won't get tired of listening. Bringing presence to the grieving process allows healing and the rich rewards of a strong and open heart. You will feel joy and peacefulness again.

Get emotional support to cope with the death of a beloved person or pet and for life changes. There is loss in changing or losing a job, moving, getting married, having a baby, growing older and other life transitions. Talking to a therapist can help you process the loss and let the feelings flow through you instead of stagnating and causing problems. Talking to a therapist can relieve some pain and help you find meaning in loss and death.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

Each of us will experience grief and loss within our lives. Some losses can feel so huge that it can seem impossible to move on. I believe that each loss we experience can stir up emotions and feelings related to past losses. I provide a safe environment for you to explore your feelings of grief and loss. By making links between the past and the present and deeply listening and interpreting the possible origins of your grief we can open up the space needed for you to move forward.

Grief & Loss

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

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

Losing a loved one, whether through unexpected or anticipated circumstances, is always traumatic and can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Although grieving is a natural human reaction to a loss it can be overwhelming. In therapy I provide a safe place were we can process those feelings together and explore which meaning the loss you experienced will receive in your life.

When you are experiencing loss and grief, it can be of invaluable benefit to have someone to listen to you in ways that friends and relatives may not be able to listen. During times of profound grief and loss, you may be experiencing your core life situations in a different light, and you may have feelings that seem endless or even strange. You may even wonder if you are normal. Although you may be feeling waves of pain, a lot of personal growth can also happen when we are griving. I hope that you will take the opportunity to get to know and understand yourself better as you heal, and I would be honored to work with you during this time.
