Grief Counseling

Grief counseling will give you permissions to feel what your feel, do what you do, and say what you say, when life finds you in a place of profound loss. Losing someone you love is one of the most devastating experiences of life. Bereavement refers to the process of mourning, but “grief” is a reaction to any form of loss: divorce, job loss, empty nest, etc.

Adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another. Often there are feelings of sadness, guilt, anger, regret, yearning and many others. Where most of us need help is in adjusting to a new reality, envisioning the future, and often developing a new sense of identity. 

I have trained at Our House in West Los Angeles and at Trinity Hospice in Torrance, CA. I have also facilitated Bereavement Groups at the Gathering Place, an adjunct of Trinity Hospice. I can provide you with tools to work through the pain and learn to maintain a connection with the person your lost. Therapy is an effective way to help you cope, whether in an individual or group setting. 

I am a widow myself, so I understand the process from the inside out. I also lost my mother at the age of 14, so I have a unique perspective on how to navigate life in the face of unimaginable loss. Give me a call for a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation.  If you’re in pain and looking for a light at the end of the tunnel, there is hope. Trust me, I’ve been there!
