Grief Counseling

In Sacramento, CA & Online Throughout California

We Help Grieving People Who’ve Lost Someone They Love.

We all grieve in our own ways and in our own time.  We’ll never hint that maybe you should have moved on by now, or push you to look on the bright side.  You’re aching inside each morning when you wake up and feel the emptiness again as you remember your person is gone.

Maybe you thought you were prepared to lose this person, or maybe the loss was sudden.

All you know is that the pain is overwhelming and the thought of them no longer being there to turn to sometimes makes you feel like you can’t go on.

You may have feelings of regret, anger, guilt, depression, fear, or hopelessness.

You might feel like you need to be brave and strong for those around you.

It may feel like there’s no one to turn to for support.

Losing a person we love can be one of the most painful experiences we go through as human beings.

You might feel overwhelmed and stuck, as everything reminds you of this person and all the things you wish you could say.

You are not alone. 

It’s possible to move through this pain to a place of peace.  For now, it’s okay to let yourself grieve.

We grieve because we love.

At Love Heal Grow, we specialize in relationships; we understand that grieving and the loss of important people can feel isolating.  We want you to know you are not alone.

Our therapists would be honored to support you.

You can meet with your grief counselor in Sacramento or online through virtual sessions from the comfort of your home.

When our clients start grief counseling, they often share that:


-They aren’t sure where to start or what to expect. 

-Others may have encouraged them to start therapy, but they are worried they may just cry the entire time and that it will hurt too bad or won’t be helpful.

-They feel disconnected from others.  They cannot imagine not having their loss be the central, all consuming part of their life.

-They may be replaying memories or moments in their minds.  It helps them feel connected to their loved one, and also can bring on overwhelming sadness, guilt, longing, or even anger.

-The little moments are hard (this is when we would have been saying goodnight, this is when he would have given me a hug) and the big ones are hard, too (this is when they would have walked me down the aisle, they would have been so happy this day).

Our grief counselors help our clients by:


-Learning about your loved one and everything that made them special.   

-Helping you find peace around the way things happened, whatever that looks like for you.

-Supporting you in finding ways to honor your loved ones memory so that you can feel connected to them always.

-Helping you learn find kindness and compassion for yourself in this process.

-Sometimes we’ll ask you questions, sometimes you will just share whatever is on your mind.  What we know is that speaking the thoughts and feelings that are building inside helps us stay connected to our loved ones while also caring for ourselves.

Through the process of grief counseling, you may:


-Feel more connected to your joyful memories of your loved one and less overwhelmed by suffering that may have filled the last hours, days or years of their life. 

-Find a way to get through your day with more moments of peace and joy.

-Feel secure in your knowing that you will always be connected to your person, and while guilt is normal it is okay to hold them in your heart as you reconnect with your life and others.

-Find yourself able to share freely about your person to others without becoming frozen in a tearful place.

You deserve support.
