It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

When clients experience a loss, there is a number of strategies that can be used to assist in overcoming the grief that has developed. Clients first benefit from identifying the thoughts or thought patterns that are leading to the constant feeling of grief or depression. We then work towards altering these patterns in a way that brings light to the situation, no matter how dark it seems. Once a client learns one of these strategies, they are then capable of applying this to other areas of life and even problems they may encounter in the future.

My aim as a grief and loss therapist is to come alongside my clients with compassion and a listening ear. It is amazing to see how sharing ones story with a caring and attentive listener can lead to healing and growth. While many well intentioned friends may offer advise on how to move forward, my perspective is to help my clients grieve in a healthy way by offering a supportive environment where they are free to express what they are really thinking and feeling without judgement. While sharing their story of loss many also find hope and meaning in the midst of their grief.
