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 can be some of the most devastating of Life's experiences. I offer an empathetic and compassionate space for you to express what you are going through using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports. Slowly and gently, and let's journey down this path together using Mindfulness techniques and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I may encourage aspects of your own spirituality or faith (if applicable), to support and comfort you.

Grief is a potential reaction to a loss of any kind whether through death, divorce, abandonment, separation, job loss, illness, disease diagnosis, kids leaving home, etc. Feelings of anger, resentment, shame, confusion, isolation or abandonment can result. Friends and family may not know what to say or how to provide support. A trained professional, who is profoundly sympathetic, respectful and empathetic, with the skills required to help one navigate through this difficult time, can be critical in helping one regain equilibrium.

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.

My approach when working with grief and loss is to honour the relationship with your lost loved one. We have this idea that when someone dies that we are not supposed to talk about them anymore as if they never existed and that you are supposed to mourn and move on. I do not believe that is helpful. Instead, I believe there is a way to grieve that honours the person who no longer walks the earth and keeps the relationship alive. Death is the end of their physical presence but not their influence on your life.

Some people resist moving on with their life because they fear a loss of the safety their loved-one provided them with. They seek shelter in denial, or behave like the loss of a special person did not occur, when, in fact, what they need is closure. There are three steps I take in helping a client seek closure: 1) The client must identify and experience the range of painful feelings that constitute grief; 2) Once the client has gotten in touch with his/her emotions, the client must identify changes or maladaptive behavior decisions that are related to the loss; and 3) The final step in closure is acceptance - to complete unfinished business and to say "hello" to the future.
