There is no love without loss. And we can't move on until we grieve. It is a healthy rite of passage. I will work with you through the 5 Stages of Grief and the terrible feelings of loss. Although the past can't die, and the future can't live, we will focus on a healthy present. I will help you learn how to manage grief rather than permit it to manage you.

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.

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.

You hurt. There is so much pain, loneliness and emptiness inside. You realize you haven’t eaten all day. How can you go on? Grief and loss comes to us all and in many forms: loss of a job, a way of life, a relationship, a pet, a loved one. Grief is an emotion that is real and true. I am here to walk with you on your journey, to help you move forward when you feel no one else would understand or when you feel you are a ‘burden’. You are not alone.

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.

Grief and loss can look different for every one of us. A loss could be through death, but it could also be the loss of a career, or the loss of a marriage or a significant relationship. Sometimes the losses in your life are so painful and unexpected that you might find yourself in crisis. Whatever you are going through, whatever ripple effects of grief are present in your life, together in our therapy sessions, we will make sense of your relationships and your emotions. We will increase your ability to be present in your daily life. One step at a time we will restore your hope and your peace.

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.

Grief is a normal response to loss. But since most of us do not want to be in pain, we may deny or suppress feelings, which only results in more suffering. In fact, unresolved grief can result in depression, addiction or other physical health problems. Cognitive behavioural counselling can help you learn to accept feelings that come with loss and find ways to heal. This is often done by examining our thoughts and behaviours. Mourning our losses in a healthy way helps us to move on and also helps to improve overall physical and mental health.

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.
