Research shows supportive counselling is one of the best ways to recover from grief and loss. Sharing time with someone trained to unlock your natural strengths can give you the boost you need to regain balance. I respect people's own sense of timing and healing, creating an oasis of caring in which to recover. I help people find their own unique path through loss to discover how the world can be OK again. I use evidence-based techniques to help those experiencing all kinds of losses (family member, pet, career, illness, losses due to abuse/assault). I have gently walked alongside many people recovering, and have very encouraging information and approaches to share.

I have a depth of knowledge and I respond to grief and loss in a broad and holistic way (not just death & dying but other kinds of losses too). I have worked with all ages, with individuals as well as groups. I respond with compassion and demonstrate understanding about the multilayers of the grieving experience. Much of my work then involves helping people with mourning & I attend to context, situation and related cultural perspectives. I borrow from Wolfelt (1996) the concept of "Companioning" vs. "Treating". New research shows that grieving people (children, youth and adults) are also resilient, & we work with this idea. Sometimes “words are not enough” & Art Therapy also benefits.

Grief and loss are experienced differently for each person - so therapy must be individualized and tweaked just for you and your situation. It is a process not an event and so we go over your story together and look for those events and perceptions that are uniquely significant to you. That tells us where to start, and what to expect. There is no "normal" when it comes to grief and loss, but you can get back to feeling normal for you.

Any loss floods you with grief. From loosing a beloved pet as a child to aging, you feel all the symptoms, first shock, then denial, and finally the terrible pain of grief. You need to tell your story repeatedly and little by little you start to feel less pain. I have an STM degree focused on the treatment of grief and I want to help you through the process to discover untapped personal and spiritual resources. Working as a team, we help you to genuinely experience the loss and pain, rather than bottling up these feelings, so you can rediscover meaning and move on in life. I do grief counselling locally in Halifax, Nova Scotia and by e-counselling throughout North America.
