I previously provided consultations for the BC Coroner's Office for 14 years. I functioned as a behavioural investigator and my role was to investigate completed suicides of youths 18 years of age and under. Needless to say this provided me with an opportunity to provide initial grief support to the most some of the most vulnerable clients at a most difficult time! As difficult as this role was it was an honour to have this opportunity to be there at the darkest hour!

All humans experience grief and loss at one time in their lives. I work with clients to help them accept the loss that has occurred in their lives. Once acceptance has been achieved I work with the clients to help them remember with a new perspective. Emotions play a large part in how humans work through difficult times. I help them connect to these emotions using mind/body connection process. My clients have been able to move on and live their life instead of existing within pain.

Losing someone, or something, that you care about is painful- and no two people deal with it in the same way. My approach is to allow you a safe place to express the full range of your emotions and to assist you in your journey of healing. It is my hope that you will come to value what you may have gained from this significant person or experience, not what you have lost.

Dealing with grief & loss is not easy. When we are grieving, it is often multi-faceted and non-linear, it can bring up many different emotions, even ones we had not expected. Working with a therapist through grief & loss can help process the many emotions that may arise. I view the grieving process of each client as unique and allow space for them to process whatever it is they need to work towards healing.

While grieving is a normal part of human experience, it can be debilitating and frightening if we are going through it alone. I will help you share your feelings, understand the context of those feelings and help you proceed through the process of closure. Grieving includes not only lost loved ones, but also opportunities and dreams. We may feel the pressure to "put it behind" us and "get on with life" but if grief is weighing you down, listen to what your mind is trying to tell you. I can help you understand what is blocking your way.

Individuals, couples, and families experience grief in their own way and on their own time. Often the feeling of loss changes and it can be extremely helpful to have someone to support you along your journey without judgment or expectations. To walk alongside with empathy and understanding.

Dan has worked with clients of all ages with grief/loss issues - from children who have lost siblings or parents, to adults who have lost a child or a spouse, to elderly clients who have lost a spouse or a chlld. The pain is great at each level and the approach is similar for all levels. The client needs to be heard and their pain needs to be validated and understood. Then, you need to help them to find reasons to carry on.

Grief is a natural response to loss. One of the most important things we can do for grief is to honour it's presence. I will help you process the emotions around your grief, help you to put words to things you are feeling and hold space for you to feel all your feelings. Contrary to popular belief, grief involves any kind of loss, not just the loss of life, this could mean transitions, moves etc.

Langley, langley, British Columbia V3A 4G4 | 6043002633

I will work with you to help you understand that the roller coaster of emotions that grief and loss bring. I am familiar with the stages of grief, but believe this is not a straight forward linear process, but more of a messy journey of healing. Understanding that what you are going through is normal human reaction and that you are not alone is important when it comes to grief. I utilize letter writing and work to help you integrate your memories and carry this lost relationship forward with you. I also do healing work around letting go and believe that grief is opportunity to deepen or begin a spiritual journey where we can have a better connection with ourselves, others and nature.

I work directly with the emotional parts of the brain to take the edge of the pain of grief and loss. I accomplish this through the use of narrative therapy, logotherapy (meaning and purpose), EMDR and OEI (draw out specific areas of emotional pain), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Clients report that this process significantly decreases their level of stress and pain without the need to recall or relive painful events.

The death of someone we love can leave us reeling and feeling unsure how to go on. There is no timeline for grief and the process looks different for everyone. Although those we love may no longer be with us physically, we are forever bonded to them and their influence in our lives continues. I also recognize that loss can be complicated and sometimes we lose people with whom we had difficult relationships. There is also profound potential for healing when dealing with this kind of grief and loss.

I will help guide you through the grief that you are experiencing by processing the emotions associated with the loss. It is important to note that grief is not only associated with death but can be relevant in divorce, job loss, relationship loss, and more. The main benefit of therapy is to help you navigate the emotions so that they are not suppressed. Further, therapy will increase your coping skills and daily management of the grief.
