Though every experience of loss is personal and unique, there are maps to help us navigate this painful process. Sometimes present grief is complicated by past losses that have re-surfaced and this can make dealing with it alone especially difficult. As an experienced and knowledgeable counsellor in the area of Loss and Grief, I can support you in not feeling overwhelmed. I am there as a compassionate listener and witness, as well as a guide, as your heart heals and you are able to celebrate life again.

There are many forms of Grief and Loss. Some losses are immediate and some are ongoing, as in the experience of having a loved one with a chronic illness. There is also the grief and loss that we experience as our own health is lost or when we lose a job or role in our lives that gave us a sense of purpose and passion. The key to gracefully experiencing grief and loss lies in learning how to feel safe being present with what you're feeling; how to know when what you're feeling is truly normal; and how to find a sense of true peace through balancing the memories and your appreciation of the past with the opportunities that exist now for finding new meaning and purpose in your life.

All of us experience grief in our life time. While it is part of our life experience, it is helpful to be able to talk about our experience and integrate the loss into our life story. Sometimes we come to the point of grief when our resources are at a low. We will always suffer in the experience but can learn from others how to manage the suffering in a better way. It would be a privilege to be on your journey with you.

We can live in misery and dwell on what its like to have them back or we can accept that they were here for a period of time to teach us to love us to hold us, and then to move on. After my mother and husband passed away within a 4 month period, I was devastated. I was pregnant with an immense amount of anxiety. What do I do now? If you want to chat, reach out I will be there. it does get better.

When looking at life through a lens grief and loss everything is intensified and there is no specific time line for recovery or "getting over it". Grief comes in waves. In working with me to process your new current reality with grief and loss we can look the triggers that are most affecting your ability to cope in your daily life. I create an environment where clients feel safe to express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. In whatever stage of grief you are in (denial, anger, bargaining, depression or acceptance) we can find the tools to help you move forward at your pace.

When dealing with grief and loss, successful results come from processing grief in a healthy manner and moving through to a place of feeling more settled. With my approaches of both EMDR & Neurofeedback (NFB), the brain is supported in a healthy manner to best allow the processing of loss and allow healing to take place. With NFB, neural connections are enhanced, affecting the Central Nervous System in a natural way to get the brain and body to be at its best. Once the brain training is completed, the effects last and the client is able to move forward in a settled fashion. With EMDR, clients can quickly decrease the intense and often negative emotional charge that loss brings.

We each experience grief and loss in individual, unique ways. Some of us have been taught to swallow the emotions or just get over it. Death, trauma and loss are all part of grief. Do you want help to understand your own personal journey through these challenging emotions. Most likely you don't even have the energy to to deal with them but that is where the therapist can help. . There may be times when you just don’t even want to think about loss. All these states are perfectly natural parts of the grieving process. I will work with you to walk through the trauma of loss and grief, allow you that safe place to share your emotions and work with you to understand and process through to hope.

Grief and loss of someone or something can be one of the most painful experiences we have as human being. It can also be very isolating and feel very much alone. What makes it so painful and difficult is because we cannot change what we have lost or bring back who we loss, but with therapy I will help you to come through the grief in a way that provides you with a sense of being okay in your life. To ease the pain and to really acknowledge how this has impacted you is the way to not be held captive to your grief without ever minimizing how much of an impact the loss has had on you and your life.

Dealing with grief and loss can be a very difficult time your life. I use compassion and acceptance in a safe loving environment to allow you to process your grief in whatever way you and your body need. I use "loving presence" to hopefully create the safety for you to put words to the pain and feelings. No agenda is set as to how this is supposed to happen. I believe each individual processes and deals with grief and loss differently. I strive to accept and help foster this processing in you.

When losing someone or something important to us, it can take lots time to adjust and learn to live our life without that person, thing or way of life. Either it is the death of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a pet, loss of a job or important possessions, change to your way of life, grieving is a normal response to a life event and bottling it up can create damage or even harm to a person. It can take time to adjust and accept to learn to live life without that person, thing or way of life. When it gets too challenging or overwhelming, or if it gets in a way of living a healthy life, sometimes turning to professional support can help getting through this challenging event.

Learn how you can use these lessons and gifts to manage your grief in a more manageable way.

Let me help you find your way. Call me now to see what my services can offer you.

Even someone who has moved away can leavchments to their e a void that may be difficult to fill. Other types of loses include that of ones pet. Many individuals form strong to their pets and this loss can be devistating. Grief is a naturel process that promotes healing. If grief persists for too long then it may dominate a persons ability to return to normal functioning

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.

When people come for grief counselling, often there is a memory or image that is haunting them, or coming as a "flashback", and which is hard for them to let go. The work I do, using EMDR therapy helps to put such memories to rest. This does not mean that you will forget what has happened, or stop loving the person who is gone, only that it will not longer have that constant sharp-edge, ever present feel. Some clients need a few counselling sessions to ease the pain, though I've had clients who healed decades-old grief from loss of a parent in childhood, in one or two sessions. They were then able to live their lives more fully.

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!

Some people resist moving on with their life because they fear a loss of the safety their loved-one provided them with. They seek shelter in denial, or behave like the loss of a special person did not occur, when, in fact, what they need is closure. There are three steps I take in helping a client seek closure: 1) The client must identify and experience the range of painful feelings that constitute grief; 2) Once the client has gotten in touch with his/her emotions, the client must identify changes or maladaptive behavior decisions that are related to the loss; and 3) The final step in closure is acceptance - to complete unfinished business and to say "hello" to the future.

Grief and loss are integral parts of life but the emotional devastation that we can experience as a result, can be extremely hard to manage. It's natural that we want to minimize the emotional fallout - it's so hard on our hearts! Medical research has shown that the physical effect on our hearts looks just like a heart attack! The good news is that it's possible to recover. With help to navigate such painful places, I've seen people experience new insights, develop new ways of understanding themselves and others and transform a broken heart into a functioning one again. It's not an easy road, but it leads to a lighter place.

Recovering from a painful loss is always difficult. Most people do not realize or understand how far-reaching a process it is. It can encompass all areas of your life and always take much longer and hurt much more, than you ever imagined! While grief is usually associated with the loss of someone you loved, it can also be the loss of other major aspects of your life as well. A loss of a job or career can be devastating, as can the loss of one's healtho or our meaning in life. I can help by walking with you on this journey. So you are not feeling so lost. Help you understand the reasons why you're stuck and together find ways to carve out a new path for you so you can move forward again!

Everyone copes with loss differently. The death of a loved one, job loss, miscarriage, death of a pet and major life changes can all trigger feelings of grief or loss. It may feel like the grieving will never stop and the pain is insurmountable. in fact, if you or a loved one is experiencing grief as a debilitating emotion then seeking help is essential. Resolving these feelings of grief and loss, with healthy coping methods, ensures that you are able to function and avoid larger issues in the future.

Many people suffer from grief and loss, whether it be a change in careers, or job loss, the loss of a loved one, the disruption of a marriage ending in separation or divorce. The diagnosis of disease or illness of an elderly parent, or a child diagnosed with special needs. All of these areas result in a sense of loss and grief and I work with clients to process those feelings to help individuals heal.
