I offer grief and loss counselling for not only a human loved one but also a beloved pet. I can deeply empathize with my clients due to having experienced these types of losses myself. I believe that it is only through personal experience that one can appreciate the unimaginable sorrow and heartache of losing a special person or animal. This is why support groups are so effective, as people take solace in the reality that they are not alone.

Losing a loved one, a relationship, a dream...it's hard for all of us. It hurts, there's no getting away from it. It's the avoidance of those normal painful feelings that make things worse. Healthy grieving requires that we allow ourselves to go through, not around, the process. Learning to experience and deal with our feelings is the key to moving forward after a loss.

Grief is often misunderstood. It is a powerful and natural emotion. When loss occurs, we are hit with a confusing myriad of emotions. Our minds and hearts are battered by an onslaught of scary, strange, unpredictable emotions that do not abate on their own. In the midst of loss, each person’s experience is profoundly unique and often very isolating. Today we are in a grief epidemic. Grief springs not only from death but also from life-altering events (such a brush with cancer). Grief counselling provides many valuable insights including: a) the increased ability to feel and understand the pain of loss experience; b) better ways to manage the challenges that accompany supporting ourselves and....

In each of our lives, there will be times of loss and grieving ... and sadness. That's a normal part of the human experience and, in our own way and in our own time, we each find our way through the grieving process. As we should. Sometimes, though, we can get stuck along the way, or it seems as if this loss and sadness is overwhelming us ... or we forget to do the work of grieving ... or begin to listen to some of those well-meaning but perhaps misguided exhortations to 'just get over it -- it's been xx months/years'. For some, it helps to talk about things and get another perspective. I offer that space for you to talk and to grieve ... a place to share the gift of tears.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

One of the most challenging experiences of life is dealing with the loss of a loved one, a relationship, one's health or even financial loss. It is very important at times like this to have a compassionate professional to talk with, learn coping techniques, and not have to feel overwhelmed by grief. One of the main recommendations I give to clients who are grieving is to resist the thinking of others that "you should be over it by now." There is no specific timetable for grieving. Six months, 1 year, who can say? Only you. I encourage clients to talk with others who are supportive and understanding about loss, though I caution that life must also be allowed to continue alongside grief.

Grief and loss is highly personal and unique. It can come in ebbs and flows and can seem overwhelming at times. As difficult as this is, it can get better, even if the loss remains. Counselling is a soft place for you to land, where you can express what you're feeling, what you'd like to feel and what you'd like to do about it. There is hope and you can learn tools to help you through the tough times, as well as through the pain to the other side. I'm here to help.

Losses are often the most difficult of life transitions. One can feel like the sadness will never lift or that life no longer has meaning. Grief is a soul journey that will change you physically, emotionally, cognitively, socially, and spiritually. The word "bereavement" literally means to be torn apart. No wonder you feel so tired! Let me companion you as you journey through this dark time in your life. You won't "get over" grief any more than you "get over" love, but you can reconcile this loss in your life and experience a life of hope and joy once more.

Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time. Each experience of grief is unique, complex, and personal, and our therapists will tailor treatment to meet the specific needs of each person. Four common tasks of grieving are accepting the reality of the loss, working through the pain of the loss, adjusting to a new reality, and maintaining a connection with the deceased (in the case of death of a loved one). Our therapists can help you to work through these tasks in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Grief is the pain we feel over loss. Most of us associate this feeling with death, and this certainly causes intense grief. But all significant losses can cause grief-- intimate relationships, health, employment, a close pet, financial stability, friendships, or even dreams. Dealing with grief means constructively identifying and giving meaning to your feelings, learning to take care of yourself, and planning ahead for upcoming grief triggers. I can help you do this. Counselling can make a difference. I look forward to helping you get back to where you want to be.

Feelings of grief and loss can emerge from the loss of a loved one, a pet, a relationship, a job, a house, a community, and just about anything else. This journey can often feel too heavy to carry on one's own, and they need a safe space to let down the veil of "I'm fine", and truly feel the sadness in order to move through it and towards the other side of healing.
