Grief can be challenging to navigate with many unexpected twists and turns. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to learn how to connect with your grief in a way that allows it to have a voice so it can be validated and deeply understood. In doing this we bring light to your grief helping it to shift and transform rather then stay stuck. One of the greatest benefits of doing this work is learning how to work with your grief to soothe it rather than being overwhelmed by it and feeling powerless. You don't have to do this alone, I am here to hold space and gently guide you through this process whenever you are ready.

The key to helping those who have experienced grief and loss is to provide empathy, and to truly be a great listener. As a psychotherapist, I do feel I have an advantage in providing my clients a high degree of therapeutic value in this area. I say this because at this point in my life, as a mother, wife and daughter, I have lost two siblings and my father. My brothers died in separate traumatic events, both under the age of 22, while disease took my father's life in his 60s. This all seems much too young and inconceivable. I have managed to live a fulfilled and happy life. I feel confident that you can as well, and I am dedicated to get you there. It is possible. I will show you the way.

The pain of loss can come as a shock to us. Grief is a part of the life journey, and yet we often don't know how to navigate it when it comes to us. I can provide a compassionate space for you to release and share your grief and losses, to find your bearing in your life's changes, and to facilitate your exploration of the complex feelings that sometimes accompany loss. You will get through this.

At times of loss - life as we know it can be taken from us. There are feelings and emotions that are so very painful to live with and our road map for life may be gone. There is a hole in life and one needs to discern how to live around it. These feelings can be hard to work through on your own. Often times it is difficult to find support in life for these intense and hard feelings - that we feel we should be managing better than we are - or that we have lost who we have depended upon most. Coming for counselling can be very beneficial in having a safe space to be with these emotions and to begin to work through them

In R2J 0H3 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Grief & Loss therapy helps individuals and families cope with death and/or areas of major life transitions (such as divorce, children leaving the home, career loss, etc.). Individuals experience the emotions, feelings, and thoughts of grief and loss differently. Working together in a safe, supportive, caring environment, clients share their stories. Together, we think creatively about the challenges of coping with loss & grief. We explore feelings of being disorganized, tired, confused, poor sleep, loss, hurt, anger, and/or sadness. The process involves helping clients move through the grief using healthy, positive coping strategies.

So many of the losses we experience come suddenly; our life changes in an instant from what it used to be. All of us experience this at times; sometimes in waves and torrents it seems will sink us. We have all either had, or will have, our sufferings. I endeavor to help by finding resiliency, coming to terms with what is, and discovering renewed purpose beyond the depth of real loss.

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.

All of us are touched by grief, at some point in our lives. This might be due to death, the end of a relationship, a major life change such as a move, the end of a job, children leaving home. In any case, we all face a task and that is the task of grieving. Grief does not merely, go away with time, it takes work. Without attending to our grief work, we risk complicating our grief. This sometimes looks like depression, sometimes years after a loss. I work to support clients in their grief work which means finding the time to allow grief to be felt, understanding what has actually been lost and what they still have to carry forward into the rest of their lives.

Grief and loss come in different forms and shapes. Grief is strong emotion that result from a loss of something very dear to us. Grief comes to bear with a reality that someone or something very important has departed: Death of a parent, spouse, child, loss of job, separation, loss of body part, life misfortune, marriage failure, disability or a victim of war. Grief and loss triggers fear, anger, shock, guilt, disappointment, pains, and uncertainty about the future holds. Grief and loss are part of human experience, the ability to cope positively in such situation is difficult. In your grieving, remember that you are not alone. As a trained and certified psychotherapist, I am here to help.

There are many forms of Grief and Loss. Some losses are immediate and some are ongoing, as in the experience of having a loved one with a chronic illness. There is also the grief and loss that we experience as our own health is lost or when we lose a job or role in our lives that gave us a sense of purpose and passion. The key to gracefully experiencing grief and loss lies in learning how to feel safe being present with what you're feeling; how to know when what you're feeling is truly normal; and how to find a sense of true peace through balancing the memories and your appreciation of the past with the opportunities that exist now for finding new meaning and purpose in your life.

I’m not sure that when a loved one dies we ever completely get over their absence in our lives. My hope is that, together we co-create an environment of understanding, compassion and safety where we can work through, vs. get over, such a tragic loss. Working through requires an individual to process their thoughts and feelings in the presence of at least one other that can facilitate the required safe & secure environment.

When sex addiction or infidelity invades relationships, an important part of the healing process involves grief counseling. I guide spouses through the grief of losing the life they had thought they had prior to the exposure or disclosure of their partners' infidelity. In addition, I help sex addicts and cheaters grieve the loss of marriages, relationships, careers, health and/or freedom.

Any loss can cause a person to feel grief; whether it is the loss of a job, a relationship, the death of a loved one, or the loss of a cherished dream etc. The grieving process can vary and there is no set time frame for grieving. However it is important to allow the process to take place. It’s not important that someone follows five stages of grieving in sequence but rather to explore each stage as they surface. I find that my clients find it helpful to use Narrative techniques such as keeping personal journals, poetry, letters etc. This will help you connect with the painful emotions of loss as well as help you to bring closure with the person/event you have loss. Moreover, telling stories of t....

In R2H 1J5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Grief is a process we will all encounter at one point in our lives-whether it be the loss of a loved one through death, the end of a relationship, the loss of a livelihood or a dream, the deterioration of health, or any such experience that leaves us feeling raw pain and anguish in our body. There is a common misconception that if we just charge through suffering-efficiently sidestepping the pain-we will move beyond in a timely manner. Believing 'what we resist, persists', I work with clients to create space and capacity to process the grief-both honoring and containing the pain, mobilizing strengths and resources, and enlisting self compassion.

We all experience loss in many areas of our lives. The loss of loved ones, loss of pets, transitions in our lives, health related issues, and changes beyond our control. It is challenging to navigate these losses and resulting grief on our own. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never leave. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. As a counselor therapist I will join you in your journey as you endeavour to bring balance and equilibrium back to your life.

Life can be very unfair at times. We all have losses that occur at various times. They may really throw us. Our perspectives and coping can be really stretched. My belief is that an unbiased professional can help give that perspective. I can help walk alongside when the pain is so deep. I can help educate and help clients walk through the stages of grief, normalizing feelings and helping them cope. I believe that each person grieves differently. Some seem to get on with life quickly, while others seem to struggle longer. Both are "right." I can help make the transition slightly less painful and possibly a bit less lengthy.

In R3B 3K6 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

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.

Counsellor / Psychotherapist

In R3G 2X5 - Nearby to River Heights, Winnipeg.

Grief is the process of adjusting to current or anticipated significant loss (e.g., the death of a loved one, chronic illness, job loss). It involves releasing the object of loss and replacing it with good memories. Therefore, I help highlight reactions likely to inhibit grief (e.g., denial, guilt, self-defeating behaviours), and identify and develop grief-facilitating resources and skills. I provide psychoeducation and maintain support to the grieving individuals to ensure a successful transition. People experiencing prolonged grief (i.e., complicated grief) are likely to have symptoms of anxiety, mood, and psychotic disorders. So, they may need medication in addition to psychotherapy.
