Everyone will experience a loss at some point in their lives. This might be the loss of a friend or family member, a beloved pet, a home, a job, etc. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and there is no set time length for grief. Grief is unique for every person. Sometimes grief has a way of taking over our lives and it can make it challenging for us to function in the ways we are used to. Grief can cause us to feel lonely, depressed, confused or interfere in our relationships with others. Counselling can provide you with a safe and nurturing environment in which to fully explore these feelings and the impact they have on you emotionally, physically and psychologically.

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.

Clients who are experiencing grief and loss can benefit from a better understanding of how the deep emotions and feelings can support new growth and ways at looking at the world. By considering elements of the experience through memory, dreams, and reflections, great power and strength can be found. Grief and loss are normal and healthy states of being, as long as they don't overwhelm and debilitate, understanding them in the context of therapy will not only benefit the individual but those around them and generations to come.
