Grief & Loss

Sylvia Khromina, Psy.D.

Psychotherapist and Relationship Counselor

350 Parnassus Avenue, Suite 601, San Francisco, CA 94117

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult life experiences and it is also often an invitation towards growth, greater understanding, and deep healing. I have learned a tremendous amount about grief and loss from my clients as well as from my own experiences of losing loved ones. I know that grief is complex and the process is unique to each individual and I also know that making sense of the loss of a loved one together with a trusted other can bring peace and healing to an aching heart. If you have been faced with grief and loss, I am here to help.

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.

Most of us feel unprepared when suffering a significant loss. Grief can feel different, even opposite from what you expect. You may be overwhelmed by sadness and pain, but there may be feelings of guilt, regret, anger, and relief. Or you may feel numb and disoriented. There is no “normal” way, but we do not grieve well in isolation. Bereavement counseling is a safe haven to be with everything you experience. I offer you compassionate, caring attention to sort through your feelings to find acceptance, forgiveness and meaning. Like many, you may find new appreciation for life and arrive through the grieving process at an emotional and spiritual depth and that was previously unknown to you.

Grief & Loss

Erika Shershun, MA, MFTI

Somatic Psychotherapist

465 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94104

Experiencing a loss can leave us feeling vulnerable, helpless and raw. Impermanence and uncertainty are the two of the greatest challenges we face as humans. Sometimes we just need a safe place to land and give expression to all we are experiencing. I am here to support and honor you and your grief as you travel this courageous journey of healing.

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.

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

45 Franklin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

In coping and adjusting to an environment, where the person is no longer around or has deceased, it is a necessary step towards acceptance. I work with the bereaved to start the acceptance, the healing, preserving the memories and begin rebuilding a new environment with hope for the future. You will get assisted in a nurturing way to help you find the strength to establish new routines or adapt previous ones, that worked well. You will slowly work on the acceptance that even though the physical presence of the departed may be missing, you can continue to relate to them through rituals, feelings and memories. You will also work on the reason why this person choose to come into your life.

1195 Valencia Street, Suite 4, San Francisco, CA 94110

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.

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.

Grieving is such a painful experience. Whether your grieving the loss of a beloved partner, friend or animal or grieving the loss of a job, a marriage, or a dream you had hoped for, our culture is not set up to take space to grieve. The messages we all get from society are about getting over it, picking up and moving on with our lives. Sometimes it's just not that easy and we need a place to process our grief with someone who is trained and skilled to be with us in our place of grief. Grieving loss is a process and I'm here to help you through it.
