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.

Rhonda Kane, R.N.B.Sc.N., MTS(PCC), RMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

The Kane Centre, 330 Trillium Drive, Unit A1, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

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.

In my practice you will find a safe place to talk about and work through pain, and the feelings of sadness, confusion, guilt, shame and anger that often accompany the experience of grief and loss. Moving through grief and loss is your personal journey that takes time and is experienced uniquely from your own perspective. I provide therapy, counselling and and support for people who have lost a loved one such as a family member, friend or colleague whether through death or the ending of a relationship, those who have lost an important pet or animal companion or people who have experienced a loss that includes a loss of a job or personal identity.

You have lost someone or something that was very important to you. It may have come as a shock and you may have mixed feelings about it. Grief is unique to every person and you will feel safe and comfortable telling me what it is like for you. You will feel heard and understood. I will help to guide the process as sometimes there are no words. Together we will talk about it, feel about it, think through the experience of loss and look at the choices that lay ahead. We will get through it together.

Grief Counsellor

Colleen Fava, RPQ, BA, Second Degree Reiki

Registered Psychotherapist (Q)

55 Cork Street East, Suite 302, Guelph, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

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.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at or 877-606-6161.

28 Weber Street, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

Grief Counsellor

Cathryn Harris, Ph.D

Registered Psychologist

28 Weber Street, Kitchener, Ontario

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.
