Re: Grief Counseling for loss of my Mother
Howard Lunche is an incredible grief counselor. He reallly helped me understand and manage my immense grief after my husband died. He also wrote a book about grief that I gave to the people around me so they could understand what was happening with me. I very highly reccomend him as a caring and compassionate therapist. his number is 841-2930 and his office is in berkeley.
Re: Support for young mother who lost her husband
I'm so sorry for your friend's loss. My husband died suddenly last year when my daughter was 2 years old.... I would also suggest getting a good grief counselor. I used Howard Lunche (510-841-2930) and I recommend him highly.
Re: Grief counselor needed for recent traumas
I don't have information about any of the names you posted, but I thought I'd recommend another therapist in case you're interested, because I found him so extremely helpful. I saw Howard Lunche (LCSW) for bereavement counseling after my brother died, and I can't say enough good things about him. He balanced his listening and talking very well, he remembered every single detail I ever told him about my brother, and he seemed to have perfect insight into how I was feeling and the development of my grief process. One last thing (and take it for what it's worth--I don't know if this describes your situation)... I noticed that all the people you listed were women... when I was looking for a grief counselor, I thought I would prefer a woman, but I decided I'd interview all 3 of the people I'd been referred to (including Howard). But even in that initial phone call, Howard was head and shoulders above the others. He's in the phone book... give him a call. Kristine
By the way, I was seeing another therapist while my father was dying as well as for awhile after he died. I wish I had met Howard sooner, as I am convinced it would have helped me to have a more meaningful experience. The other therapist was not equipped to help me, but what was unfortunate, is that she did not have the humanity nor the professionalism to admit this to me. I wasted precious time with my father that I can never retrieve.
