Paroutaud Survivors of Suicide Loss Program

Providing Hope, Help, and Support for People Coping with Suicide Loss

La Cheim's clinic in Oakland offers individual and group therapy for people in the San Francisco Bay Area who have lost someone to suicide. To learn more, please call 510.596.8127 x7705 or complete the contact form below.

Suicide loss often triggers complex bereavement grief and trauma in those left behind. Both the individual therapy and the group therapy offered at La Cheim are based on the groundbreaking work of John Jordan, PhD. Dr. Jordan’s methodology was developed in close collaboration with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the American Association of Suicidology. His approach is designed to help children, adolescents and adults struggling to cope with the heartbreaking and bewildering tragedy of suicide.

Whenever possible, the Paroutaud program finds and trains mental health providers with lived experience of suicide loss. Our therapists' specialized training and personal experience combine to help our clients feel especially seen, understood, and respected in their complex grief. 

Group Therapy: Group therapy consists of a 90-minute session once per week near downtown Oakland. The group is professionally co-facilitated by two therapists. The cost for group therapy starts at $25 per session per person, with a sliding scale such that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. The group can complement individual therapy or be used as a standalone service. Each 10-week session is scheduled for 6:30 - 8:00 PM on Thursdays. Please note that the group requires advanced registration and is not a "drop in" service.


Individual Therapy: Individual therapy consists of a 50-minute session once per week. Individual therapy starts at $95 per session, with a sliding scale such that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

It's easy to get to La Cheim's clinic in Oakland using public transit.
