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.

I empathize and listen to individuals facing loss and grief. Many clients would benefit from my Rogerian Approach (Client-Centered Therapy) because when clients have lost a relationship, boyfriend, girlfriend, marriage, or someone they love and care for, it is important that they have someone who can really listen to them and understand what they are going through. Each individual may be unique to how a person grieve a loss. Therefore, I make sure that I respect my clients' unique ways of handling their loss. At the same time, I offer feedback and professional opinions regarding various grieving processes out there--in current literature/research.

Grief is a natural response to losing something or someone that you value. Sometimes we grieve the physical loss of someone important to us when they die and sometimes grief can be experienced for symbolic losses such as a loss of a job, loss of identity, and grief can be experienced during life transitions. I use a narrative and person-centered approach to address grief and loss issues. For issues that involve traumatic loss, I can use trauma-informed grief recovery approaches to address complicated grief.

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.

In T2M 0M6 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

We all have grief and loss through the course of our lives. Each experience is unique and reflects the nature of our relationship with the person who has died or departed in other ways, or the loss of hopes and dreams which had yet to be realized. You do likely want the support of people in your life, but you may also have difficulty fully sharing your experience with them. I will be able to hear all that you are thinking and feeling, without judgement or expectations. My own experiences of grief have taught me, as has my work with grieving people, that there is no right or "normal" way of grieving, that it's complicated and isn't just "gotten over". I will be there for you.

Have you experienced a loss and are worried about how your children are coping? Are they refusing to talk about it? Or maybe they are asking too many questions and you are worried about how to answer them? Children grieve differently to adults and are often not able to fully express their fears or emotions. Often, these feelings are internalized and result in disruptive behaviors as they get older. In my custom designed play therapy room, they are given a safe space to explore their feelings and process their experience. I can help you guide them through this experience and set them up for future success and happiness.

Sometimes moving on is difficult. But we are expected to just go on with our lives.Maybe 'moving on' is not the way we want to be, maybe not just yet. Maybe we want to find a new way to have a relationship with a loved one we have lost, maybe we need to express anger, maybe we need to choose the memories we hold and cherish. Learn how to grieve as needed and find ways to maintain balance while you do. Find ways to honor those whom you will continue to be in relationship with. Learn to finish one chapter and start a new one.

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.

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....

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.

Grief and loss can bring a variety of emotions, anywhere from sadness, anger, denial etc...There are even times that grief can be complicated by other circumstances in someone's life. When journeying with someone that is going through a loss it is important that emotions be processed freely without judgment or shame. As emotions are processed through the difficult journey of grief slowly healing begins to occur. After a significant loss there will still feel as if something is missing. However, the distressing emotions can slowly begin to lessen and freedom from sorrow occurs.

In T2N 1J7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Suffering loss and grief is universal and happens to everyone at some point in time, and the pain and suffering felt can leave us feeling overwhelmed, alone, and unable to move on. People respond in very individual ways in dealing with this difficult experience, and many question if their experience/response is normal and how to best cope. I offer counselling to help with all types of grieving, including normal, complicated, traumatic, or persistent/prolonged grieving. The goal is to process your loss so that you can ultimately move forward in a healthy manner. I would consider it a privilege to walk beside you and provide guidance and skills to help you cope during this difficult time.

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

At some point in our lives we have, or will be, confronted with a loss. Our responses to loss varies, but when the impacts of a loss persist and change the way in which we interact with our environment, it may be time to seek therapeutic support. Loss often results in grief and can occur by death of a loved one (person or pet), separation and divorce, loss of a job, illness and associated loss of ability, or a significant change in circumstances. Loss may result in a loss or change to our identity as a friend, partner, parent, pet parent, home owner, job role, and our faith. I assist clients in navigating their journey from loss to a redefined sense of wholeness and peace.

Feeling lost and alone? Wish others understood, or knew what to say? I journey with people touched by loss in their life, big or small (in fact, in my mind, no loss is really 'small,' because it's significant to YOU). What we do with our disappointments and losses will define who we are (Dan Allender). Whether you're stuck with grief from the past, or coping with life changes today, having friends along the journey who can be with you in your pain are what you need. Together you and I can help you move through this difficult phase of your journey, resulting in renewed hope and yes, joy, that comes from a healed heart.

The loss of someone or something important to you can be extremely overwhelming. For what ever type of loss you experience, grief is a natural reaction. Feelings such as guilt, shock, sadness, and frustration are also common. Each person grieves in their own way and in their own time. There is no one "right" way to grieve, as it depends on your unique situation. I work with each person in a supportive manner to explore emotions and process the loss, so that moving forward becomes a possibility.

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

For over twenty years I have been working with issues of grief and loss. We have beliefs about how long it takes to move through the typical stages of grief and not everyone fits that. Our culture doesn't always appreciate that grief takes longer, is experienced in unexpected ways or is as significant over time as it is. I can help you move through the loss where ever you are at now. If grief is in control of your emotions and your life I invite you to contact me.

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Grief and loss are frequently a root cause of substance abuse, addiction and disorders. The grief process tends to deplete a person's resources, taking up a great deal of their physical, mental, and emotional energy. The absence is not the only thing they are mourning. Their plans, dreams and wishes have changed, and they are being required to let go of the future they anticipated. The phases of mourning include a desire to reverse the loss, feelings of pain and chaos, and the reordering of one's life. At Valiant Recovery, clients receive personalized grief counseling tailored to their needs, as well as specialized sessions on grief and loss.
