If you are reading this description because you have recently suffered a loss, please know that I am deeply sympathetic to your pain. In therapy, my intent is to bear witness to your suffering, to ensure that your emotions are sorted through and given open expression, and then to help find meaning in what often seems a meaningless situation. I believe that grief is complicated, highly personal, and not responsive to formulas or prescribed methods of treatment. There is only an untread path, and I would be honoured to walk it with you.

The grief experienced by caregivers of a person with a dementia is unique and largely unrecognized - many caregivers do not relate their complex and often troubling feelings to the many losses associated with dementia. I work with clients to foster a deeper understanding of this unique grief process, and to develop strategies with which to carry forward.

Grieving is one of the most painful experiences you can have. It may be caused by the death of someone you love, illness, disappointment or for many other reasons. It may start even before the loss and usually continues long after it. You may feel devastated, abandoned, angry, sleepless, depressed, miserable, in pain or lonely. You may think you will never feel happy again. Sometimes grieving is delayed or denied for a long time. Maybe you don't even know why you feel so unhappy. Dr Janice is an expert in general bereavement counseling with special expertise in child death and post abortion grieving. I will ask you to tell me the whole story of your loss and help you find comfort and relief.

Grief is a multilayered emotion that can come in waves, it can wax and wane, or it can completely throw you off your feet at different times in your life. I am here to help you gain footing by providing a compassionate and safe space to explore the difficult and complex terrain of grief. I will meet you wherever you are in your grieving experience and provide you with a safe and compassionate space to move within it in meaningful ways. I will offer information about the grieving process to help you understand some of the confusing, distressing and overwhelming feelings you may be experiencing and to help promote confidence in your ability to navigate through this challenging time.

When your grief hurts those closest to you or interferes with your day to day functioning, you need to look at what is happening to you. This is where a trained outsider can be of help. We all go through similar stages of grief when faced with a significant loss, but in our own unique way. We need to take the time and address that what we can at each moment. By making sense of where you are in the grieving process, clarifying your beliefs and expectations of the time it will take and what the end result should be, you can open up the possibility to move where you need to be. I use my own experience of loss and relevant therapeutic insights to guide you through the grieving process.

Major loss and grief effects many of us to some extent in our lives. I believe in the value of the grieving process and the importance of not rushing through it or cutting it off. Grief can be unpredictable and needs to be honored as we move through life’s most difficult challenge. I can work with you through the full range of feelings—anger, fear, gratitude, love, despair – whatever is coming up for you on a given day.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

Painful losses may be a part of life, yet whether they just occurred or happened long ago, they always must be appropriately grieved. If not they can stop us in our tracks and halt all progress and growth. Grief work stops us because grief is an emotion that must be felt, and our feelings processed, before it lets us go. It is a great teacher because it requires us to know not only what was lost, but why it matters to us. It paradoxically teaches us who we are by showing us where we emotionally live. Because most of us come from cultures that have taught us to numb or run from emotional pain, counselling can be very helpful to show us how to move through it and move on.

When someone to whom you are attached dies or abandons you, you may be devastated, lonely, angry, sleepless, miserable. You may believe that never again will you be happy. Maybe you feel guilt. Your grieving may be delayed or denied for many years because it is squeezed out by other concerns. Unfinished grieving has the power to disturb your life long afterward and you may not realize what the reason is. I will ask you the story of your loss. Dr. Janice is an expert in general grief work, child death, child loss and post abortion grieving. Grief counseling will help you to find peace and acceptance and to go on with your life. Other losses include loss of health, employment or relationship.

Taking the time to honour any loss, intense or subtle, is to allow grief's pain and sadness to have space in our lives. Whether it's learning about the stages of grief, experiencing bereavement, anticipatory grief, or dealing with reminders and anniversaries, coping with emotional suffering is made bearable with healthy coping. Everyone grieves differently and the experience must be highly personalized, and sometimes even a sacred process, that unfolds over time.
