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.

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.

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

28 Weber Street, Unit 2, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet or job is a process that doesn't have to be undertaken alone. The Refuge's team of specialized therapists 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 in your life 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, and we can teach you emotion regulation skills to help you face overwhelming pain with greater resiliency.

690 Belmont Ave W., Suite 101, Kitchener, Ontario

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.

You may be grieving the loss of a loved one or of a special relationship. These kinds of losses can shake us to the core as we try to navigate our new reality amidst such a variety of changing feelings and circumstances. Everyone grieves differently.

I will help you to ground yourself to better cope and to ensure difficult decisions are well thought out. I will help you to do your best to preserve your relationships and self care in this process. Let's help you to cope through this major life change.

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.

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.

When we think of grief and loss, we think of the death of a loved-one—but what about the other losses—a job, relationship, pet or children leaving home? These are also losses that can cause grief. If you are struggling with loss, a therapist can help by being a companion as you move through your grief by providing a framework as you go through mourning--helping you to develop some sense of a ‘new normal’. If you are struggling with a recent (or not so recent) loss, please contact me and we can explore how I can help.
