About Nisha Zenoff,phd
Nisha Zenoff's practice as a psychotherapist, grief counselor and teacher did not prepare her for the sudden death of her 17-year-old son.

As the author of published articles, including "Mother's Grief," featured in The Journal of Process Oriented Psychology and in the newsletter of Compassionate Friends, Nisha has become an expert on parental grief and been interviewed on "A. M. San Francisco" (KGO-TV) and "Seeing Beyond" (KEST-AM San Francisco).
Dr. Zenoff’s life and work have been influenced by the presence and writings of master teachers, including: Angeles Arrien, Sylvia Boorstein, Pëma Chodron, Byron Katie, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Thich Nhat Hanh, Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks, Jack Kornfield, Abraham Maslow, Amy and Arny Mindell, Mary Whitehouse, Master Ming Tong, and her family and friends who continue to be her teachers.

Nisha Zenoff lost her son in a tragic accident when he was just seventeen years old. Now, with decades of experience as a grief counselor and psychotherapist, she offers support and guidance from her own journey and from others who have experienced the death of a child. The Unspeakable Loss helps those who mourn to face the urgent questions that accompany loss: "Will my tears ever stop?" "Who am I now without my child?" "How can I help my other children cope?" "I lost my only child, how do I live?" "Will my marriage survive?" "Will life ever feel worth living again?"
No matter where you are in your grieving process, The Unspeakable Loss provides a space to mourn in your own way, and helps you understand how the death of a child affects siblings, other family members and friends, recognizing that we each grieve differently. And while there is no one prescription for healing, Zenoff provides tools to practice the important aspects of grieving that are easily forgotten -- self-compassion and self-care.
The Unspeakable Loss doesn't flinch from the reality or pain caused by the death of a child, yet ultimately it is a book about the choice to embrace life, love, and joy again. As Zenoff writes in the Preface: "Our relationships with our children do not end with their deaths. Our relationships change, they're transformed, but our children will always be with us."
