Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

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.

You've probably heard that grief and loss are inescapable. But no one could have prepared you for how hard your loss would be. At times, suffering can feel endless and you may think no one else could understand you. All of these thoughts are normal. But none of them mean you have no options. Together, we will put words to your loss. We will work through your difficult thoughts and emotions so you can transform loss into something life-giving, nurturing and meaningful. Loss is indeed part of life. Letting a therapist support you during these difficult times is a strong, life-affirming step forward. Call Joseph today for your free telephone consultation. Let’s begin the healing together.

Grief is common to us all, however, how we grieve, is a very individual experience. My focus is in familiarizing you with your process of grieving and helping you reorganize your emotional life with grief as a predominant character. Grief can be alienating, to our former self, as well as to our those closest to us. My role is helping you integrate your grief, as much as we can.

Grief, loss and bereavement can feel overwhelming and pull us away from our daily lives and being our best selves. Grief may be triggered by sudden loss, change in interpersonal relationships, or career change and life transition. You may find yourself stuck in negativity and depression, or being self-critical towards yourself. You are not alone. These are normal feelings of grief, even if those close to us may not understand us. The good news is that caring professional support can help to hold space for grief and transform it, while properly honouring the loss. You have my commitment to holding space, providing compassionate care and a plan to help you feel unstuck from grief and loss.

Loss is a normal yet profound event in everyone's life. It can be expected or sudden and devastating. Either way it often leaves us feeling as though our world has been forever changed and we find ourselves feeling lonely, lost, angry, sad, shocked or confused. Sometimes others, our fast paced society, or we ourselves expect us to move on quickly and deny or forget it. But grief has it's own story and it needs to be told. Therapy can help you sort out the many facets of your grief and offer resources and strategies to help you cope. Grief changes us and challenges us to find new meaning in our lives when we give it the honor and respect it is due.

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.

Each of our lives is touched by grief and loss in personal ways –and- also globally, at times. The process of grieving can be naturally healing and cleansing. But sometimes loss is overwhelming or we simply need some good support for our grieving process. I believe in our natural ability to heal and recover from loss. Support I offer includes: • Understanding you and your unique story • Taking stock of a loss—what treasures remain and what is truly gone • Educating around healthy and unhealthy grief • Helping you discover the ways you already know how to grieve and cope with loss so you can amplify what helps and lessen what doesn’t

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.
