Grief & Loss

Paul Parnass, M.S.W. R.S.W.

Registered Social Worker

Yonge and Eglinton, Toronto, ON M4P 1G4

Life is fragile. At any moment our life can be turned upside down by the loss of a loved one. If you are suffering from a loss, I will support you and offer you a safe place in which to express your grief. My approach is based on an understanding of the dynamics of loss, combined with my own experience in handling loss in my life. Loss can take other forms as well...such as the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of health. Together we will discuss your pain and come to understand the impact your loss has had on you. We will then develop new ways to manage your loss so that you can move forward again.

Registered Psychotherapist

344 Bloor St. West Suite 610, Toronto, ON M5S 3A7

We all must deal with grief sometime in our lives. However, there are times we lose someone dear to us and it feels as if we will never see the sun again. Processing our loss through therapy helps to make that dark journey less difficult and in time blur the sharp painful edges of pain. During therspy we will look at and restructure negative debilitating thoughts and replacing them with more constructive and positive ones. We never fully get over the loss, but we learn how to celebrate and cherish our missed loved ones.

Grief & Loss

Sandra Lewis, MA

Psychotherapist, coach

126 Seaton Street, Toronto, ON M5A 2T3

In addition to my regular practice, I work as the Bereavement Coordinator at Better Living Health and Community Servies, organizing all bereavement and grief support, training volunteers and running grief groups. Grief / loss is one of my areas of specialty. If you are grieving, you should know that everyone grieves at their own pace and in their own way, 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.

This is such a vulnerable and difficult time where great compassion and tenderness is required. My approach includes the need to feel and express our in-depth feelings in order to heal grief and loss. I offer a way to explore this compassionately and more thoroughly in order that clients can emerge from this time of difficulty more whole and healed.

Grief & Loss

Lesli Musicar, M.Ed., Counselling Psychology

Registered Psychotherapist

348 Danforth Avenue, Suite 215, Toronto, ON M4K 1N8

Grief and loss can include feelings of anger, depression and numbness. Sometimes we can get stuck in our grief because we think we "should be over it" by now. Or we get unhelpful messages from others, like "time heals all wounds." That just makes us feel like we shouldn't talk about it, or that we'll be a burden if we do. I can help you understand your grieving process and move through it with greater ease, self-compassion, and patience.

Grief & Loss

Christina Becker, MBA, Dip. Analy. Psych. (Zurich)

Jungian Analyst, Clinical Member, OSP

437 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto, ON M6R 3B9

There is nothing so powerful as the death of someone or something close to us. Death seems to open up a sacred place where we ponder questions of meaning, and the mystery and the worth of life. Jung says "When death confronts us, life always seems like a downward flow or like a clock that has been wound up and whose eventual " Grief and loss are unfortunately a natural part of life and the failure to acknowledge this inevitability can turn into a fear of life - neurotic resistances, depressions and other psychological distresses. My approach creates a safe space to allow the natural process of grief to restore you back to life.
