Grief and loss is hard, it is difficult and we all experience it in many phases of our life span. There is no right or wrong in grieving or any length of time however, there is life and hope after! It is learning to accept the grief, feel it and then move on with either with professional help or your own path to moving forward with your life.

Have you lost a partner, someone important in your life or ended an important relationship. While loss can be painful, you should not feel an endless sense of despair. Grief and loss of a loved one is a journey that can be overwhelming. Allow yourself time to grieve but ensure that you are taking care of yourself. Counselling may be a way to care for yourself as you adjust to this new reality. Together we can help you adapt to these losses and help you to move forward while honouring your loss.

Losses are a part of life, whether of a loved one or a lost job or missed opportunity, and yet can be very difficult to navigate through and find our way back to ourselves and our “new normal.” Having a compassionate and skilled professional to journey with you can be very helpful in processing losses, remembering loved ones or lost dreams, and understanding the meanings this loss holds for you. I am experienced with supporting individuals and families in a caring manner as they determine how to journey through grieving in a way that meets each one's unique needs and experiences, including possible spiritual concerns.

Grief is a growth experience. Clients entering into grief counselling in my practice will feel supported, and validated in there pain however, in the process of softenning the pain, will achieve personal growth. The pain of loss from separation, death, chronic illness is tangible and real, it does not however, have to be crippling rather through therapy grief can be a liberating, changing experience.

Registered Social Worker

451 Daly Ave, Ottawa, ON K1S 2H6

Loss can feel overwhelming, ushering forward feelings of sadness, emptiness, guilt, and anger. Sometimes seeking a safe place to be able to express these feelings can help a person to begin to heal and re-build. It is important to me to support clients through these times of grief so that they can begin to feel whole again. With time and support, these feelings can become more manageable.

Reg. Marriage and Family Therapist, Can. Cert. Counsellor, Registered Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Ottawa, ON

The death of a loved one, or any other great loss, is possibly the most stressful event anyone experiences. Grief is the normal, healthy response to this loss. It is important to allow yourself the time and space to fully grieve the loss. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to grieve – it is a very personal healing process of adjusting and coming to terms with the loss. In therapy, I accompany you on this painful journey and help you to understand and make sense of the overwhelming emotions that affect your mind, body and spirit. I offer support as we create a special place in your heart and mind for your memories.

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, ON K1P 5M9

Often we need a safe place to grieve our losses, whether they be related to loss of life, marriage, health, life plan - without over-burdening friends and family. As well as talk therapy, I use other ways, such as empty chair, letter writing, EMDR and sand tray therapy, depending on each client's situation. This frees up energy, reduces distress, provides a sense of completion or letting go, as well as a readiness to move on.

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

301 Bank St. (at Somerset St.) In Centretown, Ottawa, ON K2P 1X7

Many of my clients have a very difficult time assimilating a deep loss in their lives especially when they have lost a dearly beloved family member. At the time of their loss they require immense support and a "listening" ear". They often fear that they will never recover. What I offer them is some hope for their future and I suggest some techniques to them of how to "take the long view." I also assist them in finding relevant resources in their local community that can support them through the following months and years. I remind them that the last thing that their departed loved one would want is for them to lose their motivation and zest. I empower them to go on fully living.

I have worked extensively with the medically ill including Cancer patients. To adjust to a chronic illness is to grieve the loss of the healthy self and all that entails; to grieve the loss of a relationship; our work; anything of importance to us is to face pain of loss and move through it's tasks. I work in various models including relational, experiential, psycho-dynamic and Attachment based models to provide a safe, empathic environment for my clients to grow in.
