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.

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.

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.

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.
