Grief & Loss

When we lose someone we love, the emotional and physical pain is difficult to explain. Studies show that grief and loss for many people are represented by real pain often in the area of the heart. This is where the term a "broken heart" originates. In many other countries when a person loses a loved one, they take several weeks away from work to process and handle the intense emotions from their loss. In the U.S. we are generally "allowed" 3 working days to "get over it!". Pain from the loss of a loved one takes time to heal. If you are mourning and need to talk with someone who understands and can help, please call to make an appt. Jeannette York, 818.200.9513 4405 Riverside Burbank,$150.

Jennifer Flores, M.Ed., MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost. I will join you as you process your experience and assist in integrating the past, present and future during this very difficult time.

I am very mindful of the pain that clients are experiencing when they have lost a loved one, or are experiencing grief over upcoming loss of a person or of a dream that they have had for their life. The loss of a relationship produces feelings of grief that can be difficult to manage and work through. I help patients focus on the feelings that surround "grief": anger, denial, depression, guilt that they may be burdened by, etc. I help them develop new coping skills so they can move toward acceptance of the loss at the same time as they rebuild hope for themselves in this new reality without the person or relationship they have lost. Together with the client we redefine a hopeful future.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

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....

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

Grief can often feel debilitating. However, not everyone grieves the same. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or relationship, the emotional pain may cause anger, fear, worry or despair. It might cause you to question your identity, safety, faith or even your existence. Don’t suffer alone. In therapy I offer a safe space for you to process all of your emotions, identify your core beliefs and practice healthy coping strategies to help you on your journey to healing.

"The only way out is through." ~ I believe this to be true in terms of dealing with grief and loss. Whether it's dealing with the loss of a person, relationship, or dream, we all grieve differently and for different reasons, but we don't have to go through it alone, which is why finding the right kind of therapeutic support is important. I believe that giving people the right kind of guidance, tools, coping strategies, and support, will help them pass through the grief cycle and come out of it with more insights about life and themselves, feel more resilient, and more empowered.

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.

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!

Loss and grief are an inevitable part of life. The loss of a loved one, friend, job or life-stye may result in painful experience. Talking through the feelings of shock, disbelief, sadness, anger, and guilt can be a tremendous help at these times.

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
