Death comes quickly or slowly in everyone's life. Loved-ones might suffer chronic illness followed by painful death. In these situations, grief and loss occur before the loved-one has actually died; the experience of death is a drawn-out process of sadness. Loved-ones can also die suddenly and shockingly. Without any warning, someone is gone. Regret, guilt, wishes to have done something differently compound grief. Sadness, emptiness, confusion, over-whelm and numbness follow too. Children dying is beyond pain Relief comes from honest & open work--the type of psychotherapy that few friends or family feel equipped to provide you during your time of loss.

I have worked with victims of trauma and abuse for over 15 years. I have been trained on many different methods to helping a client through their trauma so that they can begin living without PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms. Many people come to therapy because of the nightmares, trouble sleeping, having flashbacks, and having intimacy issues because they cannot let their guard down. For 10 years I worked using strictly a “person centered” approach to therapy. That means that I would let the survivor tell their story in their own way and not really guide them much. My main job was to make sure they felt safe and figured out ways to be safe. This process took a very long time, but it ....

Have you lost a loved one? Had a divorce? Laid off from your job? There are many ways we experience loss, and it often hampers the way you live life.

Overcoming the loss of a loved one, experiencing a tragedy, or change in what you once knew can make your future seem dull and lifeless, too. It doesn't have to be that way. I can help you to understand your feelings, and learn ways to manage your pain and stress as you go through stages of grieving. Together, we may look at ways the loss affects you, but also what you loved before the loss, in order to find light and hope, and strength to continue on, filling the empty spaces in your heart.

Jeffrey Salinas, MS, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Grief and loss is a functional part of being human. While we all accept this reality we are all too often unprepared for the emotional impact of the event. The loss of anyone close to us is always difficult. Sometimes we are impacted by the loss of others whom we do not even know. The loss of a child, spouse or significant other is often the most painful. In therapy we will explore the level of grief and loss and help to minimize the pain while understanding and realizing our own needs. counseling will provide coping teaching tools, allowing us to move on with our lives.

Every one of us experiences grief and loss at some point in our lives. It is part of the human experience. How we manage is what sets us apart from one another. Grief and/or loss is not always connected to losing a person to death, it could also be losing an opportunity, a career, a stage of your life, a relationship or coming to terms that your life at this time is different than the life you planned. I can help you manage feelings that arise, and make sense of the event that has or is triggering your grief. I can accompany you in those dark moments and help you regain your mental equilibrium to find your way back to happiness.

Grief & Loss

Sara Doudna-Klein, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

We all suffer loss in our lives. That's just a reality of existence. Grief, unresolved, can greatly interfere with our ability to live our lives and be all that we can be. I help people to find resolution to all of life's losses and disappointments by listening and guiding them to identify how their life is being affected. I help them find a new perspective through the use of healing methods such as imagery, EMDR and a variety of other therapeutic interventions. Life can be good and meaningful, no matter what or who has been taken away. You can make sense of it all and move on.

Grief & Loss

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Losing a baby is the hardest challenge that any parent can face. There are no words to describe the grief and pain that follow. It is a loss that cannot be measured. Parents can feel utterly alone, wondering if they can survive as relatives and friends are encouraging them to move on. Anger can mount in trying to understand why. Grief and loss take time to heal. I work with fathers who have lost a baby, had a stillbirth, termination, or lost a baby in neonatal care. Take the time to reach out for help. This is a difficult journey that takes time and is slow. The death of a baby is hard for many to understand. I encourage you to care for yourself and reach out for help.

Grief and loss are both highly individual and intensely personal. Although we all experience grief and loss in different forms (death and non death), nothing describes the pain. Together we will create tools and awareness to process these painful life bereavements.
