There is intangible and tangible loss both of which are important to acknowledge and allow the individual to grieve in their manner. Having patience and understanding of where the individual is at with their grief is important to help them cope and build strategies to move on with their life. It is important to understand the stages of grief and loss and to acknowledge the stages don't always happen in order, in a timely way, or that all stages are even reached. Grieving for each indivudal is different, it is important for a therapist to recognize and validate for the indivudal seeking counseling that what they are feeling is normal.

Experiencing a loss, whether it is of a loved one, pet, career, way of life, etc., can be one of the most difficult things to process and find our way back from. Working through it alone makes it even harder. I am here to support you through loss and grief and let you know that it is ok to feel what you feel and to not be ok right now. Loss hits us hard and we need to talk about it and get our often complicated feelings out. Please know that I am here for you whenever you are ready to talk.

Any life will, at times, include pain. So it is understandable that at some time any of us will have to struggle to deal with loss. You can find a strength within you to pull you through this. As your therapist my commitment is to honor that wisdom and help you find even more. Yes, loneliness and isolation can come as we go through life. My experience has been that as any of us are heard in depth, we can listen beyond the pain for the inspiration we seek to move on. In contrast to how it may seem, we can actually grow through grief and loss. Similar to exercise, one’s personal balance and overall perspective on life is like a muscle - one that we can train to help us more as we progress.

Grief brings the hardest combination of all feelings - despair, anger, fear and love. It can right leave us with unmanagable pain, feeling disoriented and questioning everything. Sometimes it feels too painful to step back into the world that dares to carry on as if nothing happened. Sometimes we need someone to remind us that it is a place we are passing through and not a destination. We offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. We 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.

Losing a loved one to suicide is incredibly painful. Mixed feelings of confusion, anger, responsibility, and terrible pain can leave you feeling alone. Some people still struggle to talk about losses that happen by suicide. This kind of loss is complex. Learning to manage it, learning to talk about it, in a safe and supported environment, can be very helpful. You do not need to manage this grief alone.

You are grieving and you want me to help you feel better. Unfortunately, if you've lost a loved one or had other losses in your life, I can't change what's happened to you. Instead, I can teach you how to embrace your grief, to stay with your difficult feelings. By doing so, you open the door to self-change and the chance to discover meaning in your life.

There is a natural process of grieving but sometimes, for various reasons we become 'stuck' and lost in the midst of the grief and losses we have experienced. Grief and loss occur not just when we have lost someone through death. There are so many losses: the loss of a marriage, the loss of a deep friendship, the loss of a job or even the loss of a long held dream or hope among so many others. It is possible to find hope and way to move forward in the midst of these losses. I will walk alongside you and help you to find new ways to move forward.

Are you feeling kind of lost, disoriented, with no energy, now that he/ she/ they/ it are gone? Any kind of loss implies a change and any kind of change implies a loss.

Have you tried to just "take it; tough it out" and not given yourself the time to really grieve and heal? Adela can facilitate your healthy grieving. Through this process you can find your ground and re-create your life in a new way.

Grief is one of the hardest things many of us ever experience. It is a trauma that is held in our body as well. It can be all consuming and painful in many ways. But if we try to ignore it, I find it simply gets louder, becoming depressive and anxiety like symptoms. Grief is intense because it needs the space to be processed. It may not go away completely, but there will be a life without it taking over. You will get through this and learn to manage it. We will get through it together.

Unfortunately, we will all face grief and loss some time in our lives. Fortunately, it is possible to recover and move forward in life. Through counselling, I can help you: understand the impact of the loss (e.g., on your mood, functioning, behaviour and general well-being); how to grieve the loss in a healthy way; and how to move forward with hope, confidence and success.

The connections we make with people, animals or things are rarely simple or one-dimensional. So when these connections are lost or changed, they can have a significant impact on our lives. Each individual and connection is unique, so our work together will explore and process the myriad of conflicting or uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and sensation you may be experiencing. Adapting to new roles, developing new ways of connecting with family and friends and managing changes will be the additional ways we can honour the past relationship and navigate a new path.

I believe that while death and other losses are a natural part of life, sometimes it can trigger a complex response or maybe it just feels too big to handle on your own. A therapist can help you make sense of what has happened and understand your emotional responses to the loss. I will help you care for yourself and your loved ones through the process and help you access your support system.

People experience grief and loss for a variety of reasons: loss of a person, loss of an animal, or loss of a way of life. Grief can be overwhelming – my approach to grief is helping people to find balance again, and to find a way to continue on, while honouring the loss. I recognize that there is no one-size-fits all approach to surviving a loss, nor is there a “right” way to grieve. Schedule a free consultation to see if we are a good fit.

Grief is usually associated with the loss of a loved one. However, other situations can also cause grief such as the loss of a job, relationship or health. Everyone grieves in a different way and in their own time. Grief is a process and through this process you may experience feelings of shock, anger, blame, guilt, and sadness. There is no specific order to feel these in and these feelings may come and go. In counselling I can help you cope with these emotions.

Many people who have experienced a loss describe this as one of the most emotionally painful experiences they have faced in their life. Naturally, we lean on the support and guidance of family and friends to help us through these difficult times. At times, it's important to acknowledge that the support and knowledge of a compassionate and unbiased professional may be needed. Counselling for grief and loss will allow you to speak about the things that have been so difficult to talk about, explore the experience of the loss and the meaning made of the loss, and work towards gentle healing through cultivating self-compassion, acceptance, and growth.

Grief and Loss counselling is helpful to break out of isolation and resume contact with oneself and the world around you. Understanding the grief process makes it more manageable and less overwhelming. Counselling helps you to make sense of what is happening in your life and can be a ray of hope while in a dark and lonely place. You cannot "fast-forward" the grief process...however, you can find constructive ways to move through it instead of getting stuck in it!

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Because loss can't be prevented, grief is inevitable. However, we do not always grieve our most significant losses. It is often far too painful to ‘go there’, and the needed support for doing so may be lacking. Yet non-resolution of often many other strong associated feelings, and experience of sorrow that is not expressed, can harm us by constraining our vitality and perspective on life, robbing us of “aliveness” itself. We can remain ‘stuck’, "depressed", harmed physically by stress effects while compromising our close relationships. Grieving can be greatly obstructed by unprocessed hurts from our earlier life, especially childhood, ie, unfelt prior losses, requiring skillful assessment.

The journey through loss or grief can be difficult and can sometimes feel overwhelming. I can help get through the difficult times and places where people sometimes get 'stuck'. My certificate from UWO in Grief and Bereavement gave me the necessary training but I also have the experience and ability to hear and walk with hurting people. Death of a loved one, relationship loss, empty nest, or job loss are only a few of the life losses that people grieve. I can help.

Grief and loss are an inevitable part of life, and yet can feel so isolating when it touches you. We don't talk about loss very much in our culture, there is no way to "fix" the problem of loss. Grief and loss are more manageable when the experience is shared. I am honoured to have walked this journey with many clients and although every story is unique there are elements that are similar, including exploring feelings of guilt, and relief. It would be a privledge to share your story,

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.
