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.

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.

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...

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.

In life we are faced with one change after another.We are always in some state of transition. Consider changes that are difficult, painful or confusing. What are the changes in your close relationships that have occurred for you? Perhaps, it is the loss of a relationship: the death of a parent, spouse or close friend. Maybe your marriage ended or you have close friends who separated recently. It could be that good friends have moved away or your young adult children left home or aging parent who develops dementia. Talking to another person about your loss/change can help you see more options and lift your mood.
