As a relational therapist I understand how our grief & loss is affected by the relationships we have had in the past and present.

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.

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.

Losing a loved one through death, illness or estrangement, or experiencing a major life event or change can have debilitating affects related to loss. If you feel numb, events seem surreal, or anger, sadness or fear wash over you when least expected, you are normal. I will support you as you identify the affect of loss on your life, and offer tools to sort out the chaos of emotions to restore some joy in life.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

A divorce or death of a loved one is a crisis that changes and challenges the meaning of your life and sense of self. This can result in deep sadness, confusion, disorientation and disbelief. Therapy offers you the opportunity to move through your grief more quickly. You can experience a sense of peace and hope for the future. You can learn to cherish and find comfort in his/her memory. Therapy can help you redefine your place in the world and learn to be without him/her.

In R2M 3T2 - Nearby to West Kildonan, Winnipeg.

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.

No two people's grief is the same. Everyone deserves the respect to journey through the valley of grief in a way that is suiting to their needs. Family, friends and neighbors often do well at soothing and comforting the one stricken by grief, but sometimes they are not enough or they seem awkward or even make blunders. It's not unusual to need professional help. We offer a calming presence, guidance through the tasks involved in living with loss and sadness, and the hopeful discovery of meaning and purpose in your life.

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.

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.

In R2J 0H3 - Nearby to West Kildonan, 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.

Grief and loss can overpower us when we do not learn how to listen to and learn from them. I help my clients feel heard, understood, and cared for, so that they have the sense of safety that allows them to learn their grief and loss, so they can heal, grow, and become more wiser, more compassionate people. In a way, I think of grief and loss are like sad children who need caregivers to listen to and nurture them. As we get better at soothing our grief and loss, these dark emotions allow us to connect with ourselves and others with more wisdom and love.

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.
