Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement Counseling May be Right for You

Bereavement counseling at Calabasas Behavioral Health can help you recover after the traumatic loss of a loved one.

The death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling or friend is debilitating. It’s often difficult to allow your grief to run its course and resume basic functions in your life without outside assistance. You may experience physical and mental symptoms that do not allow you to function or interact well with other loved ones, who may also need your support during this stressful time.

Calabasas Behavioral Health can help you recover from the death of a dear friend or family member with professional bereavement counseling. As with other forms of talk therapy, the appropriate type of grief counseling depends on your needs and preferences, and can occur in individual or group settings.

Whichever type works best for you, bereavement counseling will ultimately enable you to:

  • Work through your feelings. The emotional fallout of a death, whether sudden or expected, can be overwhelming and stressful. Therapy can be the conduit through which you express your grief to sympathetic listeners.
  • Find your path to recovery. Some patients experience relatively short periods of grieving, while others realize they require more time to cope with the sense of loss.
  • Understand that there are others in the same situation. Group therapy sessions with empathetic individuals who have also lost someone close can provide considerable relief and even be the basis of post-therapy friendships.

Calabasas Behavioral Health provides professional bereavement counseling for patients from the cities of Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Tarzana, Simi Valley, Agoura Hills, and Beverly Hills.

Find Hope with Professional Bereavement Counseling

Many people attempt to deal with the death of a loved one without professional help. They rely on friends, family or their own inner strength to cope.

That approach works well for many. But sometimes the emotional ramifications of another’s passing aren’t easily understood or take months to surface. Your grief may be deeper than you realize.

The professional staff at Calabasas Behavioral Health is trained to recognize the symptoms of grief and compassionately assist with recovery at a pace with which each individual patient is comfortable.

Even a single bereavement counseling session may be helpful. Call Calabasas Behavioral Health today at 818-921-4300.
