One thing they don’t tell you about grief is that sometimes it sneaks up on you and takes your breath away. Grief affects us mind, body, and soul. When we have lost something or someone that is important to us, it can be hard to handle on our own. I can help you work through what you have lost and help you have a better understanding to what is going on within you. Grief is circular and at times it wipes around and you feel you are back to the first moments of your loss. Grief is not dedicated to the loss of a loved one, grief comes whenever we face changes in our life. If you feel you need help working through this overwhelming time in your life, please give me a call.

Professionals now realize that that the process of coming to terms with one's grief is particularly hard when the grief threatens our basic beliefs about goodness or justice in the world, or when there is little social support. How we grieve is based on many factors in including our coping style. Rhonda feels called to understand each person's reaction in the context of his or her worldview and unique situation Facilitating adaptation rather than overcoming or recovering from major loss then becomes the goal. We can grieve our whole lives and it still be normal. Rhonda adds in the use of EMDR, a very effective technique, particularly useful for dealing with the traumatic aspects of loss.

Loss has many faces, coming from many different places. Even small losses can add up and sneak up on us, leaving us empty. While loss is a common part of life, we are not always given the tools or the opportunity to do the emotional work to complete the natural process of grief so we can be free to move on. In our work together, we will explore what is keeping you stuck, and identify the resources you need to move on, while honoring your loss. I can be your companion and share many tools with you on this often lonely journey. As a certified EMDR therapist, I can also help you more easily navigate the hardest parts of the journey using the resources of your own mind.

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.

Grief is the normal reaction one feels when someone or something of importance is lost. It is an emotional response which may vary in intensity depending on how significant the loss was. A person can grieve many things. The loss of a job, the loss of a pet, the loss of a loved one, the loss of health of one’s abilities. How you grieve is very much related to your personality and coping skills, your faith and beliefs as well as the nature and significance of the loss. There is no “normal” grieving nor time table in which you will begin to feel better. There are many symptoms of grief. Shock and disbelief, anger, sadness, anxiety, panic, fear, guilt as well as physical symptoms are common.

When I was 14 I experienced my first death. My grandpa was my favorite person in the world at the time. He used to sit beside me and play with my earlobe while we would talk about our day. I couldn't make sense of all the emotional issues that it brought. I have also experienced loss in my life that doesn't involve death, yet profoundly affected my life in negative and confusing ways. Grief & Loss can be pretty tricky and complex! The benefits to working with me is that I go above for all of my clients! One of my clients suffering with grief had not been to the burial site since the funeral. I drove them 2 hours so that we could journey together through something they were finally ready for.

We often don’t know what to say when we encounter someone who is in mourning, and in the process, sometimes unwittingly say things can be insensitive. We don’t really understand the grieving process, often misunderstanding why, either ourselves or others, haven’t ‘gotten over it’ in a suitable amount of time. These attitudes can leave people undergoing the grieving process experiencing such feelings as loneliness, being misunderstood and out of step—just to name a few. If our loss is due to incidents of suicide, miscarriage, or the death of a pet, our feelings of being outside of the norm can increase. Grieving is hard work. It takes as long as it takes. There is no standard time frame.

Grief is the emotional suffering we feel when we lose something or someone important to us. This can include the loss of friend, partner, or family member, a change in life circumstances, death of a pet, getting fired, loss of health, safety, a dream... anything that we once had and now do not. The intensity and process can be unique for each person, but like all other emotions that impact the quality of our life, ignoring it or suppressing it does not work. Seeking support as we move through the various stages of grief is very helpful. Planning for our healing is crucial so that we do not become 'stuck' in the pain. A skilled therapist can assist us during this vulnerable time.

Experiencing grief and loss is part of the human condition. The loss of a loved one, or a pet, or a painful life event are all some of the most difficult things we will go through. I have worked as a therapist and counsellor for close to 30 years, and not everyone goes through the 'five stages of grief' in the same way - or in the same order. You will find your own way through grief and loss, with empathetic guidance and therapy from me, as you learn to release the pain.

If you are reading this because loss has impacted your life, you have my deepest sympathy. Through counselling, I will meet you where you’re at emotionally and help in whatever way I can.
