Grief & Loss

Sheryl Colby, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Van Nuys, CA

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Everyone experiences loss in their own way. A loss can cause feelings of grief, which are associated with feelings of sadness, guilt, regret, anger, hopelessness or a sense of feeling lost. Our treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs and your stage of grief. We will work on accepting the loss, working through the pain of the grief, and adjusting to the changes.

Grief and loss is a delicate life experience. I will be mindful of where you are in your grief process and meet you there. I believe it is difficult to understand grief without experiencing it directly, which I have in many different ways. I process grief and loss issues in a variety of ways. One avenue is psycho-education on the grief/loss stages. Another tool is through creativity through art and writing. Bibliotherapy, reading grief books, is another coping strategy. Finally, a grief support group where you will meet others enduring pain is another instrument to work through the pain of losing a loved one.

Losing a love one is difficult. You begin to experience confusing, anger, anxiety and depression. In therapy you will have a space that is safe to explore different feelings. In therapy you will also learn about the stages of grief and will brainstorm coping strategies that will support your healing process. You do not have to go through this journey on your own. Call know to get support.

Laura Pescione, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Although loss is an inevitable part of life, it can be debilitating. I provide a safe environment where you can process your painful feelings so that you can find satisfaction and pleasure in your life again. Many people can feel paralyzed after the loss of a loved one. Often times this paralysis is a conscious or unconscious attempt to hold on to the one that was lost. Moving forward can feel unbearable, like you are losing your loved one all over again. I can help you move forward and still feel a deep connection to your loved one so that you can go on to live a life that feels fulfilling and worth living.

"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.

Lori Freson, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grieving and losing loved ones can be such a difficult time. Everyone grieves differently, and you partner may even pull away. Sometimes your friends don't know what to say, so they don't call or come around. This can leave you feeling alone, sad, angry, and depressed. You need someone to talk to and support you during this difficult. The worst thing you can do is stuff those feelings down. They will find their way to surface one way or another. Hopefully, with caring, supportive counseling, you can express yourself and get through this difficult time.

Grief and loss can be so very difficult to work through. Whether the loss was expected or unexpected, it still hurts. I will guide you through the process with a combination of talking and sharing, art projects, journaling projects, and mindfulness exercises. Whether you lost a family member, a friend, or a beloved pet, I can help you process the pain and feelings of loss as you find closure. And I will never tell you to "just get over it".

Behnam Keyvan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Van Nuys, CA

Losing a person, relationship or beloved companion animal can leave you feeling alone, lost and scared. I can help you give voice to your emotions and begin to integrate the grief into your life in a healthy way. It's normal to grieve deeply when we love deeply. Honoring those feelings is an important part of walking the path of healing. Therapy offers those experiencing the tidal wave of emotions that are often present after a loss the opportunity to process the past, present and future in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I work together to process the loss, discuss stages of grief & begin working towards deeper healing & acceptance. We never fully "get over" the losses in our lives, but we learn how to accept them & move towards a healthier view of...(view profile to read more)

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.

Everyone grieves in their own way. You shouldn't feel you are out-of-control because you grieve in unexpected ways or for a longer peroid. Cultural and religious differences in grieving exist which are perfectly acceptible. A therapist must be sensitive to these issues. Grief is said to involve denial, anger, bargaining, deperession and acceptance. We will monitor your reactions to validate those feelings in session. Unhealthy reactions to loss do occur; self-medicating, and isolating oneslef for long periods, experiencing full-blown depression -- these behaviors, can prove detrimental. We will monitor your behaviors and mood changes and deal with negative conditions, should they occur.

Grief & Loss

Sheri Rose-McCashin, M.S., LMFT,

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of Van Nuys, CA

Grief and Loss is profound and a natural part of the life cycle. Losses occur everyday from a simple disappointment ( lunch cancelled) which is easily recoverable to a more significant and impactful loss ( a job,relationship,health or finances). I believe clients benefit from having their grief and loss witnessed by another and by having a place to process the experience and it's meaning to them. The benefit of therapy is to allow the individual to unfold and assimilate the loss which may never be "gotten over".

Grief & Loss

Nadia Siswanto, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Losing someone you love whether it is divorce, death, or some other life transition is hard, sometimes even devastating. By the time you realize how hard it has hit you, people around you have already moved on, and you are left feeling like you should just “get over it.” But that isn’t how grief works. It isn’t something that happens in a moment, it is something that happens over time. Having a safe place to work through everything that comes up is the best way to truly grieve. When we don’t adequately deal with our losses, it can come back to bite us, sometimes even years later. I will help you grieve in a private, safe space.
