Complicated Bereavement Treatment in San Diego

Complicated bereavement, also called complicated grief, is a nuanced illness that needs care that is expert, specialized and compassionate. Solara Mental Health provides that care with our calming environment and our experienced, caring staff. At our psychiatric facility we create a personalized combination of individual psychotherapy, group therapy and holistic therapies.  Clients explore their grief in a safe, nurturing environment and develop the skills needed to accept their loss and find mental and emotional healing.

Acceptance and Healing

Losing a loved one is a profoundly painful, heartbreaking experience. Although mourning is often a difficult, time-consuming process, complicated bereavement disrupts this process, keeping those struggling with it from overcoming the pain of their loss and functioning normally in everyday life.  Instead, individuals suffering from complicated bereavement find themselves stuck in mourning.  The pain of their loss seems ever-present and never fading. These feelings can be extremely isolation and debilitating, inhibiting normal social and occupational functioning.

There is a wide variety of symptoms of complicated bereavement, including the following:

  • All-consuming grief
  • Inability to accept the loss
  • Avoidance of things related to/reminiscent of the loss
  • Frequent/constant thoughts about the loved one who has passed, coupled with powerful longing to be with them again
  • Feelings of anger, guilt or bitterness
  • Isolation, loneliness, detachment, numbness
  • Inability to trust or connect with others
  • Insomnia or other sleep disruption
  • Anxiety
  • Physical symptoms, such as extreme fatigue, weight changes, nausea and muscle pain

At our mental health treatment center, we provide peaceful facilities where clients can learn how to accept and heal from their loss. Working with both clinicians and peers, clients will break free of their isolation and realize that they are not alone in their struggle. Our structured Grief & Loss therapy group is especially vital to healing from complicated bereavement.  In this structured space, clients come together as peers to address their feelings, build a support network and practice techniques for returning to everyday functioning. Through this program, clients come to accept their loss and cope with the pain it has caused them, finally allowing them to heal and live a full life.

While our clients make considerable and rapid improvements, complicated bereavement is often a long-term condition. Through years of experience, our mental health treatment center has learned how to provides the entire spectrum of care for our clients.  From inpatient to outpatient, from transitional living to a long-term aftercare plan, our program has been designed to free our clients from the clutches of complicated bereavement.

What Our Clients Say


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.
