Allow the privilege of knowing your story and being beside you as you live each day. Tell your story the way you want it. Take all the time you want. Express yourself the way you need/want to. I am with you. At times, we can be silent. It's perfectly fine. We can just share each other's presence. Don't worry about others telling you to "get a grip" and move on in life. Though it may seem to be eternity in your sadness and sorrow, there is an end. And don't be afraid of that "do nothing" period - again, others may see you as tardy or goofing off, let them ! You are regenerating. Life and death are realities, they are also scared. You have not taken life for granted by grieving!

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

No one understands grief and loss like someone who has been through it. Fortunately for you, I am one of those people. My own losses of loved ones, of physical ability, financially, and in relationships have given me the ability to know the territory. It is in our moments of grief and suffering that we are able to connect and appreciate that which has been lost. Having a space to honor these losses is vital to our well-being and to our sense of what is sacred in life.

Even though we would want to tell the client that grief and loss is a neat process of 5 - 7 stages (denial, anger... acceptance), it is usually experienced as a roller coaster of emotions and it takes a different amount of time for every individual. What I do is to help clients embrace and express different levels of pain: 1) talking about emotional experience, without showing the emotion; 2) talking with emotional reactions (tears coming, trembling voice); 3) silent crying; 4) sobbing and 5) loud crying and screaming. Finally, we should not forget that moderate denial is natural (like a temporary break from grief). And yes, grief can shake our faith, but it usually leads to acceptance.

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.

Grief and loss does occur anytime we experience the loss of someone or something that we love and identify with. Although it can be normal to grieve, there can come a time when someone may feel stuck in this grief process and then they dicsover they need some help in looking at the situation differently. I can help a client identify their feelings and help them move forward through surrender and acceptance. If there is unfinished business with this person or situation, I would help my client resolve this problem though forgiveness. The ultimate purpose would be to be able to move forward in a constructive and loving manner, leaving behind all grievances and guilt.

Loss can leave one with a myriad of emotions (feeling overwhelmed, confused, depressed, deeply sad, angry, among others). If left to our own accord, most will eventually begin to feel generally better; however, some lasting emotionality is not uncommon. In other cases, individuals experience a persistent and long-lasting deep sense of loss. In either event, counselling can help individuals to honour the emotionality of grief and loss while reducing the overall effect on their daily living. Ego-State therapy, is particularly well designed for grief and loss interventions, helping individuals to understand the loss, as well as finding and bolstering their own personal coping resources.

The grief and loss process is unique for each individual. The loss of a partner, the end of a relationship, a loved pet that died years ago...these events can have a profound affect on us.In counselling we work through the various stages and tasks of greiving together,at the clients pace. Through this journey I offer support and compassion to the client at all times. The benifit to the client is that they work through their grief and eventually are able to honour the loss yet at the same time move on with their life in a positive way.

I help clients navigate their loss whether it be from the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of something important such as a job, a pet, a friendship, or oneself. My approach to helping clients addresses regrets, change, acceptance, anger, and sadness. With people who have lost their loved one, I teach ways of keeping their loved one "alive" and honouring them rather than using traditional approaches of "letting go" and "moving on," which are being shown to be unhelpful and unreasonable for many clients. This fresh perspective helps my clients through a difficult time in their lives while teaching meaningful strategies to use throughout their lives.
