SGVGRTC was created to meet the diverse grieving needs of our community. Our goal is to provide affordable grief resources including individual and family grief therapy, support groups, community education, and outreach about grief and loss. Our organization is the only training site in California for unlicensed associates and trainees to receive specialized training, accumulate hours and experience necessary for licensure, and more importantly to work with grieving individuals. In addition, we provide continuing education for mental health professionals currently providing mental health care.

The organization is under the leadership of Executive Director, Jennifer R. Levin, LMFT, PhD. Dr. Levin is a Fellow in Thanatology (the Study of Death, Dying, and Bereavement) and has over 25 years of experience working with individuals at the end of their life as well as individuals and families who are grieving. Dr. Levin is an experienced non-profit director including Hospice of Pasadena. In her private practice, she specializes in Traumatic Loss where she also supervises and trains associates in the skills needed to work with individuals living with traumatic grief.

Dr. Levin has also developed an online self-help program for individuals living with traumatic grief. At this time SGVGRTC is in the process of building their clinical team and accepting applications for associates interested in training and providing services.
