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.

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.

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.

In life we are faced with many losses. Grief is a deep, painful and primal emotion. The most profound experience is the death of a parent, spouse or child - made more difficult when they die young. A divorce or separation is another serious loss but the grief and sadness is complicated by the mix of fear, pain and anger. When your young adult children have left home your 'empty nest' may bring on sadness. If your aging parent develops dementia you experience a long slow grief. It is important not to bottle up your feelings of grief. Isolation makes matters worse. Talking to another person about your loss can help lift your mood and see more options.

The only thing predictable about grief and loss is it's unpredictability, and it can appear to have a life if it's own. Grief & loss is different for everyone, and can be extremely difficult and painful to manage. It is key to gain awareness of the process of grief & loss, and develop healthy coping strategies to respond to intense, difficult and unpleasant feelings. Knowing that you are not alone can make something that is very difficult, less difficult to deal with. Reaching out and talking to a professional can help manage and process these difficult and unpleasant feelings. This is how we heal...

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

320 Danforth Ave. Suite #202, Toronto, ON M4K 1N8

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.

Toronto, ON M5J 2T3

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.
