Most of us will grieve at some point in our lives. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, an unborn child, a marriage or relationship, a career, a friendship, or a pet, there are all kinds of losses that can be felt deeply and affect our ability to cope with daily life and show up in our relationships with others. I work with clients to help them give voice to their grief, develop coping strategies for getting through this difficult time, tend to the very real emotional pain, and gain strength to create a path forward in a way that honours their loss.

Grief is a normal and appropriate reaction to the death of a loved one, the experience of separation/divorce, intergenerational loss, or the loss of opportunity. While there are similarities in how individuals work through loss, grief is a complicated and unique experience that requires helpers to be sensitive to the needs and experiences of those they are supporting. Specific tasks of grief counseling include emotional expression about the loss, accepting the loss, adjusting to life after the loss, and coping with the changes within oneself and the world after the loss.

When the worst happens and a loved one is gone, it's impossible to heal overnight. Just know that there is a way through. I provide a safe space where you can finally let go of "holding it all in" and "putting on a brave face." Together, we'll gently process the depth and gravity of your loss. At your own pace, let's navigate the challenging landscape of deep grief, and gradually invite peace, love, and acceptance back into your world.

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.

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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3T3 | 604-998-4688

Grief and loss are frequently a root cause of substance abuse, addiction and disorders. The grief process tends to deplete a person's resources, taking up a great deal of their physical, mental, and emotional energy. The absence is not the only thing they are mourning. Their plans, dreams and wishes have changed, and they are being required to let go of the future they anticipated. The phases of mourning include a desire to reverse the loss, feelings of pain and chaos, and the reordering of one's life. At Valiant Recovery, clients receive personalized grief counseling tailored to their needs, as well as specialized sessions on grief and loss.

Without a doubt, losing someone in your life is THE most painful experience we can have. I know. I've experienced loss myself. I also know how those around us want us to 'get over' the loss as soon as possible because they care about us, but also because people just don't know how to cope with loss in the lives of others. It feels awkward to them. We can feel it. But we just can't get back to 'normal' when our lives have been shattered. It takes time, and often lots of it. And, as you know, there's no 'getting over' loss; it simply becomes a part of the fabric of who we are. But, in time, we can move forward to re-engage fully in our lives. Let me help you do exactly that.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.
