Dealing with grief requires addressing the many layers of life that grief touches. Facing the loss of a loved one can also bring up reminders of other losses we have experienced - some of which may still feel unresolved, and are now coming to the surface along with the acute pain that the current situation brings. Since grief is ultimately about loss of connection, my approach involves finding unique ways of "reconnecting" and healing the wounds that can be left behind when a painful loss has been experienced. I provide a safe and compassionate environment to assist in healing through grief and understanding all aspects of the grieving process as it evolves.

Grief therapy involves moves thorugh stages. I help people identify when they have experienced losses, both literal, such as a death, and figurative. Understanding the theory of the stages of grief can help clients move through many issues of loss that happen across the lifespan. Counselling with this framework helps you understand what you are going through, and know that you are not alone.

In addition to my regular practice, I work as the Bereavement Coordinator of a Toronto Hospice, organizing all bereavement and grief support, training volunteers and running grief groups. Grief and loss is one of my areas of specialty and while everyone needs to grieve, there are ways to make that process easier and even faster. If you are grieving, you should know that everyone grieves at their own pace, there is no rule about that (in spite of what people might tell you). Something else you should know: you may feel a variety of aches and pains that appear around the time of the loss. This could be somatic pain, which is more related to your grief than to any physical problem.

In life we are faced with one change after another.We are always in some state of transition. Consider changes that are difficult, painful or confusing. What are the changes in your close relationships that have occurred for you? Perhaps, it is the loss of a relationship: the death of a parent, spouse or close friend. Maybe your marriage ended or you have close friends who separated recently. It could be that good friends have moved away or your young adult children left home or aging parent who develops dementia. Talking to another person about your loss/change can help you see more options and lift your mood.
