Loss and grief come in many forms. Grieving is a personal experience. I have worked with clients experiencing loss of a loved one including a pet companion, loss of functioning/mobility, employment loss including retirement, and relocation/joining a new country. My approach integrates compassion, hope, renewal, and ways to integrate the loss. In my work and research in this area, moving forward from loss combines honouring the past while actively finding new ways to engage in the present.

Grief is a normal response to loss and needs to be experienced. However, when grief has gone on too long or is felt to intensely, therapy can be helpful. I support clients in exploring the impact of their losses and their experience of grief. I use strategies such as hypnosis, EMDR, or narrative therapy to help resolve that grief. I respect that current grief and loss experiences may be connected to earlier, unresolved, experiences of abuse or trauma and that counselling work may need to focus on resolving related issues.

Grief and loss is inevitable in life. All change, no matter how small or how large, involves moving through the grief process. Unfortunately, some people have not had secure attachment relationships to enable this natural process. When we haven't processed the normal developmental changes and losses in our lives, we find other means to overcome the loss such as numbing, obsessive behaviours, or anxiety and depression. Processing grief and loss requires a safe, skillful, dependable, reliable counsellor to help guide you through.

We are social beings. When we suffer loss or grief, we benefit from talking with others about our feelings. Sometimes the purpose is simply to purge, to be listened to while in the depth of our pain. Other times we need to address the unhelpful - even harmful - things we tell ourselves while suffering grief and loss. Regardless, working through grief involves experiencing pain, and being patient with ourselves as well as the recovery process. I like to believe that clients have a safe place in me to engage it.

Loss is an inevitable part of life. Whether it be moving to a new city, a death of a parent, or divorce, it can be helpful to have support through these transitions. In my experience, I have supported individuals dealing with multiple losses and changes, including deaths by suicide. My view is that the grieving process is unique to each individual, and I support each client to cope with loss in their own way. I am influenced by the work of Kenneth Doka and Adam Wolfelt, as they understand grief as a natural process, rather than something to be labelled as pathological.

Most people experience multiple losses in their lifetime: loved ones, pets, jobs and possessions. I help clients process loss through grief counseling. I provide supportive listening, guide clients through stages of grieving and processing of emotional pain. When people experience sudden or traumatic loss, they may require specialized trauma therapy such as EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) which is proven to be very helpful.

Thalia and Thomas's parents separated and they felt deep loss. They live with their father but he didn’t want them to see their Mom. Counselling gave them a chance to open up, express their feelings and build communication so they could explain the importance of a relationship with their mom. This opened the way for their father to allow them access to their Mom. Thalia and Thomas felt recognized, important and heard. Their relationship with both parents improved.

Grief and loss is part of life. Whether we loss someone we love through death or divorce, or lose our job it is a natural process of grieve that loss. Many times we approach loss by saying that we "want to get over" the death of our loved one, loss of job or health. We want things to get back to normal. The reality is that we need to find our way through mourning to the new normal in your life.

Grief and loss are responses to heart ache and trauma. I work with clients to facilitate the expression of their feelings through telling their story. This story telling may be verbal, writing or artistic creation. It may involve making amends or seeking forgiveness. The journey through grief can be difficult yet one that will bring closure and healing. Emotions are along a continuum and if one does not have the ability to experience pain it will be difficult to experience joy. Grief and loss work is life enhancing.

Death is an inevitable facet of life, and the loss of a loved one ~ changes a lot of things. The greatest loss is loosing our part in the relationship and how it anchored us. Death changes one's entire platform of life. Complicated grief is when unresolved issues still linger, or when a difficult relationship has ended. It leaves us destitute and incomplete. At SunRise we would like to help you find a renewed sense of purpose. A way to reconcile and move on without forgetting. We would like to assist you in finding a deeper meaning to that persons life, and focus on the legacy they left behind ~ and the way they touched your hearts. We would like to help you grieve ~ and still grow.

The death of a loved one is one of the hardest losses to experience. There are many other losses that people struggle to process as well. Which losses have you experienced lately? Loss of a relationship, loss of a job, loss of financial security, loss of physical ability, loss of health, loss of independence, loss of possessions, etc. Any loss can lead one to feel like they can't move forward. When a person is able to find meaning to their experience of loss they tend to feel liberated and fulfilled, ready to move forward with their life. I am exited at the opportunity to join you in this journey!
