Grief and Loss

Grief and loss are a natural part of the human experience and can take many forms. While the death of a loved one is a common trigger for grief, people can also grieve over a job loss, an illness, or the end of a relationship. The psychological impact of loss and grief can manifest as a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion. At CGCMFT, Dr. Sahar explores the complexity of the grieving process and provides a safe and accepting space to explore your feelings and experiences.

As a systems therapist, Dr. Sahar views individuals as part of a larger context and recognizes the importance of relationships in shaping your sense of self. She works with you to understand and navigate your grief process, which involves actively listening to your story, asking thoughtful questions, and providing validation and support without judgment. Through your work with Dr. Sahar, you may discover new insights and perspectives about your grief and how it fits into your larger life narrative.

Furthermore, Dr. Sahar believes that you are the expert on your own life and experiences, and her role is to facilitate the process of healing and growth. Together, you may explore how your grief is affecting your relationships, your work, and your sense of purpose. She will work with you to shift from an individualistic perspective to a holistic perspective, recognizing the interconnectedness of all aspects of your life. While grief can be a painful and challenging experience, it can also be an opportunity for growth and transformation.

You may discover that, in relation to your loss, you still hold narratives of strength, resilience, or the ability to heal from emotional suffering. As a result, you are not alone in this process. Dr. Sahar will work with you to develop strategies and coping mechanisms that can help you navigate the ups and downs of grief and loss. With her guidance and support, you can move forward in your healing journey.
