My approach to grief and loss begins with the understanding that grief is a natural reaction to loss. The first step is to validate and support you through that loss. While grief is natural, sometimes it can be so intense that it interferes with the ability to do the things we want or need to do in our day to day lives. Consequently the second step is to try and decrease the intensity of the grief so you can back to your life. Finally, we try to develop new coping skills so that you are better able to manage the feelings in the future.

Most people associate grief with the death of a loved one. Losing someone you love or care deeply about is very painful, but any loss can cause grief, including the loss of important relationships, your job, health, or sense of identity. After a significant loss, you may experience difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. At times you may feel like the sadness will never end. Grief and loss shouldn’t remain center stage in your life. As you deal with your loss, remember that there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that can help you to move forward and strengthen you emotionally.

Is your struggle with grief and loss creating issues for you in your intimate or family relationships? If so, I can help you strengthen those relationships so they provide a sense of support and strength, rather than creating additional stress. Sometimes it can be hard for those most important to us to understand what we are going through. Counselling with me can help.

Certified Canadian Counsellor

6-8 Duffy Place, St. John's, Newfoundland A1B 4M6 | 709 730 3240

Grief is a challenging and complicated emotion. There is no timeline for grieving. I take a narrative approach to help clients process their loss. Individuals need to tell their story and experience the emotions in order to incorporate the loss into their life histories. Often we avoid painful emotions, but these emotions are integral to our life experience. I provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to process these difficult emotions.
