Grief and loss can be incredibly devastating, heartbreaking, all consuming, and just plain lonely. Grief can come in many forms, and can look like many things. Does the world look gray? Do you feel a sense of depression and disconnect from those and the world around you? Loss can also come from a variety of life situations, including, but not limited to death. Sometimes we grieve the loss of a relationship, a pet, a role in life. Each of these is a valid loss. It would be my honour to walk beside you through your healing, and to help you to find meaning and joy in life again.

It is common to feel stuck in your feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, regret, and shame after a loss. Sometimes, these feelings can keep you from doing the things that are most meaningful and important to you for a while. Together, we will look at ways to help you flexibly move between sitting with and distracting from your grief so that you may both honor the memory of your loved one while also taking small steps to move forward.

During grief and loss, people can find themselves keeping a lot of strong emotions inside of themselves. I offer a comfortable and nonjudgemental space for people I work with to express their feelings and thoughts. I work with clients to gain a deeper understanding of grief and loss itself. Grief is an inevitable and universal experience. The longer we live, the more grief and loss we are exposed to. I acknowledge and validate the grief and loss that clients share with me and work with them to accept and overcome the challenges associated with them.

With Gestalt therapy the five tasks of mourning, are supported: (1) To accept the reality of the loss, (2) To experience the pain of grief, (3) To adjust to the environment in which the deceased is missing, (4) To withdraw (some) emotional energy and reinvest it in another relationship, and (5) To find a place for and maintain a continuing bond with what we lose, however not in any specific order. A gestalt therapist supports the bereaved with an emphasis on a "loving authentic presence and communication that allows expression of EACH other’s personhood" so that feelings are honored and explored at the clients own pace. The here and now is emphasized and that is what leads to support/change

Grief is a natural response to losing something or someone that is important to you. It is the emotional suffering you experience when someone or something is taken away from you. Many associate the death of a loved one as the cause of grief, but any loss can cause grieving. I can help you process your grief in meaningful ways. You do not have to grieve alone.

Having space and time to process normal feelings of grief and loss can lead to a healthy integration of the loss and reduce complications such as depression and anxiety associated with an interrupted grieving process. Providing a therapeutic relationship that allows sharing of the impact helps normalize the loss, increase acceptance and generate feelings of well being.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet or job is a process that doesn't have to be undertaken alone. We can help you to honour your feelings and where you are at in your grieving, to take the time you need, to find ways of addressing the incidental responsibilities and worries that come with loss, to honour the importance of the loss through ritual, writing, art or other means, and to find ways of creating meaning and acceptance in order to move on. Complex grief, associated with trauma, can also be addressed, working through what's still being held in the body and exploring emotion regulation skills to help you face overwhelming pain with greater resiliency.

My intention is to hold a safe space where my clients feel supported through the whirl-wind of emotions and intense feelings that come up while dealing with grief and loss. Everyone’s journey is very personal and I want to help my clients honour what they need. I offer counselling before, during and after the death of a loved one as I feel having support at all of these stages can be helpful for healing. Grief and loss come in many other forms such as the loss of a job, pet, culture and lifestyle. All are valid and cause turmoil due to transition. I help to ease this turmoil by helping my clients help themselves come up with strategies to better cope.

We will review your history and gain a perspective on the loss you are experiencing. we will define realistic expectations of how you are experiencing your loss together. Loss is a natural experience that often we place a lot of guilt and expectations beyond ourselves to "get over". Your loss is individual and you deserve to work through it in a way that fits for your needs- no one else's.

You will be seen and supported and will be able to get to the depths of your grief instead of staying on the surface with it. Many times people cannot uncover the specifics of what the grief is about and this means letting the grief go can be very trying . It is important to be able to come to grips with this and not let this be an encumbrance in your life.
