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.

Grief and loss can be all consuming in one's life. Therapy can move you through the pain to a place of honouring that which was lost. Our body holds onto grief. Instead of "leaving it all behind", healthy grieving is a way of creating space to carry forward the helpful and beautiful essence of people, moments, events and items that are important to us.

When someone important to us dies, we feel sad. Grief comes in waves & usually gets easier over time. But there are many kinds of grief. Disenfranchised, Complicated, Anticipatory or Cumulative Grief can all make the picture more confusing. In many cases, no one has to die. You may feel grief when you get divorced, or when you (or a loved one) get a new diagnosis. Your grief may go unrecognized if you lose a child in early utero, or lose a pet. Sometimes, the loss you feel may be more about the loss of dreams, than about loss of an individual. There is no right way to feel or to cope. I can help you sort through the confusion & move forward with new understanding.

Going through grief and loss can leave your whole world frozen and meaningless. Through therapy with me, you will find a road back to meaning and recover your life energy. The process of grieving is one of acceptance and through acceptance and letting go, you can actually regain your wisdom with a profound sense of strength and new insights. There are many types of loss, from losing a close person or pet, to leaving your home city or house, or even losing a job or losing a relationship through separation and divorce, as well as through death. There is also the very real loss of hope and dreams, plans that may be lost through death, separation or illness. With gentle support, I will help you.

My approach is to join with you to understand your experience of loss intimately and deeply in conversation with you. When we are joined with the pain, you will not have to feel it alone, even if the grief is only fully healed with time. I will help you make sense of your feelings and provide psychoeducation around the phases of grief, specifically to how these known phases can be meaningful to your current experience, what you are feeling, and how you can continue to honour the person, relationship, or thing that you have lost and find acceptance and hope.

Feelings of grief following significant loss are normal and healthy. It is when grief is protracted, denied, delayed or becomes complicated by other factors that therapeutic intervention may be necessary. It is common in our culture for people to feel as though they should not have to grieve or that they should grieve only in a certain way or for a prescribed period of time. Being facilitated by a compassionate, trained counsellor, who encourages the sadness, despair and anger associated with grief to flow freely can greatly assist a person who is having difficulty grieving. People often need to be reassured that these feelings will eventually subside and that life is still worth living.

Grief is a natural reaction to loss. The death of a family member, a pet, or even the end of a relationship can trigger the bereavement process. Grief counselling can help you deal with overwhelming feelings including sadness, anger, depression and guilt. Together we can talk about your loss and any unresolved issues in a way that is supportive and compassionate.

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.

My approach to grief and loss is based on the belief that there is no right way to grieve. Grief impacts our entire being and can be overwhelming – physically, spiritually, emotionally and psychologically. When we avoid facing and working through our grief, it surfaces in other ways that can do more harm than good (overeating, anger, depression, heavy alcohol consumption – all of which impact our relationships with ourselves and others). It is a highly personal experience shaped by previous losses and the messages we received growing up which are influenced by many factors including our gender. It is through naming and making meaning of the losses experienced that healing can take place over time. Gradually over time, these feelings can become lighter and...(view profile to read more)

Grief and loss are both universal and unique experiences. We all experience them from time to time and the experience can be overwhelming and debilitating. I will help you understand that experiences inform us but do not define us - we can choose our path through grief and loss and leave it behind, changed but not broken or damaged. There is life in front of us to be lived and every experience we have is important and informative to who we become.

We grieve with each "goodbye" we say. Some losses hit us harder then others. Therapy can allow you to process, find some meaning in, and ultimately to make peace with the loss. The goal here is not to forgot about the loss but rather to make space in you to allow the loss to sit. This is an important distinction because everyone accumulates losses and we have to find a way to hold these losses with as much integrity as we can.
