My gentle, compassionate approach centres on offering practical and spiritual support to clients going through a grieving process, depending on the client’s particular needs and preferences. I find it is helpful and empowering for clients to understand the origins of the grief response so they’re better able to recognize and normalize it and support themselves as it arises, thus facilitating the healing process. In grief counselling, I draw from Nancy Reeves’ Energy Model as well as literature by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

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.

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.

Grief and loss affects different people in different ways. In my practice, I do use the stages of grief as a framework, but value the individual differences in grief and loss presentations. Counselling can help people process their loss and gain closure about it. I facilitate the process of being with the feelings of loss and using cultural ways to deal with the loss.

I believe that grief is a unique experience for everyone and my role is simply to support you though it by helping you to process what you feel is happening as well as all of the feelings that get unearthed with grief. It is common for people to be told that they have been grieving for too long or that the way they grieve is wrong. These are myths about how grief can impact our lives.
