Losing a loved one can bring up a breadth of feelings that can often seem overwhelmingly difficult to manage. In addition to offering support and empathy, I will explore with you the experience of your loss. Together, we will bring to light the meaning of that loss, both in terms of your connection with your loved one, as well as its overall significance in your life and other relationships.

The experience of grief and loss impacts everyone differently. I believe that through talking one can begin the process of learning how to cope. There have been many theories proposed in regards to the experience of loss for individuals, a formula prepared. I believe it is difficult to apply the formula to everyone though. I hope that through my practice, people are given a chance to talk openly about their loss, learn coping skills and create a new page living with their loss and grief.

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.

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.

Individuals often come to see me for therapy in my practice in the downtown area of Toronto in order to help them cope with grief, bereavement, and difficulty adjusting to painful loss. For some clients this includes the loss of a close family member, for others this includes the loss of an intimate relationship. In either case, the opportunity to discuss such losses and to understand their impact is an important part of the psychotherapy process.

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.
