Therapists in California specializing in Loss/Grief and Positive Psychology

Therapy for Loss/Grief

Grief is a reaction to an emotionally significant loss and often comes with symptoms of depression or anxiety. These symptoms can remain intense and last for a long time after a loss, making it difficult to move forward with a healthy lifestyle. Working with a therapist who specializes in loss/grief may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of life.

Positive Psychology

Positive psychology focuses on traits, thoughts, behaviors, and experiences that can improve the quality of someone's daily life. The goal is to center on positive experiences like optimism, creativity, and resilience, giving balance to the therapeutic process.
