Loss or Grief

Elaine Skoulas

Marriage and Family Therapist, M.A., LMFT
Grief and loss may be one of the most universal experiences, yet it can be extremely isolating experiencing grief in a society that does not know how to talk about these issues. My experience includes grief training and working with individuals and groups specifically with bereavement, death, and grief.

Melissa Klass M.A., LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist, M.A., LMFT #119163
Death. The most universal of life experiences. So why are we afraid to talk about it? We use euphemistic language in an effort to . . . what exactly? Does imagining her in “a better place” take the pain away? What do we say when children ask if they can visit this place, or when the deceased will return home? And then the casseroles and phone calls taper off. Always too soon. Then people stop asking, as though their questions will bring her to mind and cause you to suffer. Don’t they know you think of her every day? Grief doesn’t ever really go away; it changes over time. Just when you think you are coping better with the loss, the holidays arrive, or the one-year anniversary hits, and there you are, overwhelmed by difficult emotions once again. I would be honored to sit alongside you on this difficult, and often lonely, journey.

Loss or Grief

Stephanie Brumfield

Therapist, MSW, ASW, PPSC
In navigating the intricate landscape of grief, my practice acknowledges the myriad forms it can take—spanning from the acute pain of recent loss to the complex sorrow stemming from childhood trauma, ancestral burdens, and unmetabolized emotions carried through generations. Grief is not a monolith; it can emerge from the loss of a loved one, the ending of significant relationships, shifts in personal identity or life stages, and even the mourning of missed opportunities or unfulfilled dreams. My approach is dedicated to guiding individuals through these diverse expressions of grief, recognizing each journey as deeply personal and inherently transformative. Providing a safe, nurturing environment, I encourage clients to explore the full spectrum of their grief. This exploration is not limited to the losses traditionally recognized by society but extends to the more subtle, often overlooked forms of grief that can deeply influence our lives. Through a tailored blend of therapeutic techniques, I focus on actively engaging with and processing grief in all its forms, facilitating a meaningful exploration of its origins and impact. This comprehensive process involves addressing the emotional pain, understanding its roots—whether in recent events, childhood experiences, inherited family traumas, or burdens that aren't ours to bear—and beginning the healing process. By doing so, clients are empowered to reconcile with their past, understand the breadth of their experiences, and move toward a future marked by renewal and self-discovery. My goal is to assist each individual in navigating their unique path through grief with empathy, insight, and respect for the myriad ways it can manifest. In embracing the full complexity of grief, we honor its potential for pain and transformation, viewing it not just as an obstacle, but as a profound opportunity for growth, deeper self-awareness, and a renewed connection to the essence of our being.

The Weight of Memories: When we lose someone dear to us, the calendar transforms. Dates that once held anticipation and joy become painful reminders of our profound loss. Life's milestones and anniversaries, which were once celebrations, can become days we dread. On these occasions, the wound of loss, which we've painstakingly worked to heal, can re-open, thrusting us back into a whirlwind of memories and haunting "what ifs." From Dull Ache to Searing Pain: The dull ache of grief and sadness, which we've learned to carry with us, can suddenly transform into a searing, sharp pain. It's as if we're transported back to the very moment when we first received that devastating news. We find ourselves at the bottom of that cold, dark hole we've so painstakingly clawed our way out of, inch by inch. Our Compassionate Support: At Well Coached Life, we're here to remind you that healing is not a linear process. Grief has no set timeline, and it's okay to experience those moments of intense sorrow. Our experienced coaches provide a safe space for you to share your emotions, explore your memories, and find the strength to move forward. A Personalized Journey: We recognize that each person's grief journey is unique, and the pain of loss is deeply personal. Our coaching services are tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you receive the support and strategies that resonate with your experiences. Rediscover Light in the Shadows: Grief may change the way we experience life's milestones, but it doesn't have to define our future. With Well Coached Life, you can embark on a journey of healing, self-discovery, and finding meaning in the midst of loss. Join us today, and together, we'll help you find the light in the shadows of grief.

Loss or Grief

Jonathan Kruger Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
While the loss of loved ones is a natural and normal part of life, loss that is unexpected, untimely, accidental, or drawn out, may lead to trauma for those left behind. The grief associated with such trauma can be debilitating and, perhaps even more challenging, isolating. Such grief can also have a cascading effect, leading to deeper depression, anxiety, fear, and maladaptive behaviors to address these overwhelming emotions. While grieving is natural and must run its course, I believe strongly that any loss can be helped through exploration of the corresponding emotions and behaviors with an objective and trusted therapist. My approach to grief and loss is anchored in my own experience. Having lost most of my family over a very brief window of time, I know well the many emotions that accompany such unexpected and sudden loss. My treatment approach is a merger of my clinical skill set with a deeply empathetic ear, anchored in the coping mechanisms I personally deployed to help manage the many transitions through my own grief. In my work with my patients around loss and grief, I focus on navigating the negative emotions that can accompany loss (guilt, anger, hopelessness, overwhelming sadness) while, over time and when appropriate, jointly crafting with my patients a narrative that celebrates the life of those that have moved on, and facilitates the release of those emotions that can keep patients “stuck” in the trauma of unexpected loss.

Psychologist, PsyD, CST, CSWT
Grief results from many types of loss. A loss can be the death of a loved one, a breakup, losing a job, or a change in financial security. We can also experience the loss of our identity, purpose, ability, or level of functioning. Everyday life events, such as moving, can involve adjusting to a new city, culture, or trying to make new friends. This can mean grieving the loss of a life we used to have. In order to successfully grieve, we need create new meaning in our lives. However, certain things can get in the way of this process. These “stuck points” might include anger and resentment, guilt, seeing the lost person or thing as being “all good” or “all bad,” or having difficulty talking about the loss. If you are experiencing a painful loss and feel overwhelmed with where to start, your search for a therapist is a great step. Call me today so we can discuss how grief therapy can help you.In order to be the best version of ourselves, we need to grieve these losses and create new meaning in our lives.
