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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Perhaps the most potent of psychological agonies results from losing a major attachment figure. Often grief and major depression are indistinguishable from each other and a significant loss can create depression compounding the grief making it even more unbearable. I offer compassion and support while I help you to adjust to your new circumstances.
