Grief & Loss

Robert T. Muller, Ph.D., C.Psych.

Clinical Psychologist

114 Maitland Street, Toronto, ON M4Y 1E1

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.

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. This is how we heal...

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.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

99 Crown's Lane, 3rd Floor, Toronto, ON M5R 3P4

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.

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.

Marilyn Miller, Ph.D., C.Psych

Registered Psychologist

141 Davisville Ave Suite 1101, Toronto, ON

We are seldom prepared for grief and loss. Yet through it, we often discover new strength and resilience. This is not what we feel at first . Sadness, self doubt, and feeling overwhelmed by the simplest task may cloud your days. Finding ways to make sense of the loss and changes in your life can open new meaning and purpose going forward. You do not have to do this alone. Grief counseling can help you along the way.

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.
