Grief is a natural part of life and refers to a wide array of situations. However none can be more upsetting or difficult than that of a serious loss, particularly that of a loved one. Emotions can fluctuate dramatically depending on the individual and their personality and connection to the loss. I provide a means of coping with these difficult emotions whether it be anger, sadness or despair. I offer unique approaches to help address these emotions and ensure you are not alone during this difficult time.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Grief brings the hardest combination of all feelings - despair, anger, fear and love. It can right leave us with unmanagable pain, feeling disoriented and questioning everything. Sometimes it feels too painful to step back into the world that dares to carry on as if nothing happened. Sometimes we need someone to remind us that it is a place we are passing through and not a destination. I offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. I work with you find ways to make sense of you loss, learn to manage your feelings in new ways and find your way back into life again.

Have you experienced a loss and the grief is consuming you? Maybe you've lost a loved one,a job, a marriage or relationship, or even a beloved pet. I believe the grief that results from these losses is a personal process and at times this process can become overwhelming. Loss is hard. Within a caring, empathetic and compassionate environment, I can help you process through the grief. You will be given space to explore what it means to have experienced your loss, and tools to help you discover ways to move forward. Grief is not about trying to forget. It is about remembering in a way that restores emotional health and wholeness. I can help you with that process.

Grief and Loss are a natural part of the life cycle. I believe in gently walking my clients through the grieving process by assisting them to identify the positive lessons and aspects you can take from a sad or traumatic event in their life. We are often told to console ourselves by taking a pill which will presumably make all things better. And while, medication can play an important part in working through overwhelming grief, often times it is better to work through the pain rather than numb it.

If you have recently lost a loved one, first, I want to express my condolences. The death of a loved one or the loss of a significant relationship is the most stressful event we can experience. I can offer you support and practical strategies to navigate through the process of healing, help you adjust emotionally, and help you develop sound and lasting coping skills that will allow you to progress forward at your pace. I also provide therapeutic support for those who anticipate the loss of a loved one.

Grief and loss are significant life experiences that can be difficult to manage. I have heard from many that sometimes it seems like the extreme sadness will not leave them. I work with such clients to try and make space in their life to experience positive emotions along with the sadness. Grief is very individual and some clients desire help to "move past the grief", while others do not agree with this. I work to meet clients where they are, to optimize their day to day life experiences according to their own individual hopes. In addition, I help clients to find meaning in their experience of grief and loss, honour the life of their lost loved one, and manage the related difficult emotions.

Although grief can be a complex and tormenting experience, it reveals the importance of the lost person, pet, or relationship. While some have tried to devise a systematic model for how one is supposed to grieve, I have seen how messy, complicated, and unpredictable grief can be. I would be honoured to walk beside you through the wasteland and help you make sense of the life you have now. Finding your footing after a major loss can feel impossible. For some, the loss has changed them so significantly that they will never be the person they were before. Rediscovering and reintegrating oneself back into life is possible. I would like to take you from misery to meaning.

Grief & loss are a part of life. Sometimes the end of a relationship or the loss of a loved person or pet or ideal can be ameliorated by finding a way to memorialize and internalize what's lost whether through discussion or creative expression. I work with people to express the pain, to find meaning and dignity in it, and to be able to move on. Often dream work, writing, music and art are helpful in finding your way through the pain. This does not require any particular talent or knowledge, just the need to release something. I also work with people on strategies to accept and live through the pain.

While grieving is a natural and a unique process for each us, it can also feel painfully overwhelming . My approach is to assist individuals and families to form some joint understanding and respect for the experiences all are encountering as they struggle to make sense of the loss they now must deal with. Clients I have seen report that our work together helped them make sense of the changes due to the loss experience and discover healthy ways to express feelings about the loss. This led to the healing experience of integrating the importance of the loss into their current life, allowing them to move forward in a way that felt respectful and true to their experience.
