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.

Grief is an intensely personal experience, and it is never the same for any two people; even two people grieving the same loss. Some abide by the commonly known Stages of Grief, while those stages are recognizable, I believe the process is not linear, and any stage can be experienced at any time. Completely accepting people wherever they are in the grieving process prevents the expectation of a grieving in a certain order. My approach is to show compassion, emphasize self-care, and to provide a safe place and plenty of opportunity for self-expression. The creation of memory/legacy pieces in the form of songs, poems, and/or visual arts is an option when appropriate.

Grief is a potential reaction to a loss of any kind whether through death, divorce, abandonment, separation, job loss, illness, disease diagnosis, kids leaving home, etc. Feelings of anger, resentment, shame, confusion, isolation or abandonment can result. Friends and family may not know what to say or how to provide support. A trained professional, who is profoundly sympathetic, respectful and empathetic, with the skills required to help one navigate through this difficult time, can be critical in helping one regain equilibrium.

I open up space for clients accept and share their grief, since many people don't feel comfortable doing so, especially with others. I help clients to work toward resolving unresolved grief and express their unexpressed grief. I help clients to honour & give space to their grief. In today's rushed world, people often don't take adequate time to honour their grief & sense of loss. I help clients to try and honour what their lost loved one would have wanted for them, or, sometimes to take back their life back from a lost loved one who didn't value or validate them. I work to prepare clients for grief to be lifelong, though that doesn't mean that it will always have the same intensity.

Are you feeling stuck in your feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, regret, and shame after a loss? Sometimes, these feelings can keep you from doing the things that are most meaningful and important to you for a while. Together, we will look at ways to help you move between processing these difficult emotions and distracting from your grief so that you may take small steps to move forward and do things that both honor the memory of your loved one and also allow you to take some small steps forward at your own pace.

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.

Grief and loss are normal, universal emotional experiences, but there is a tendency to get stuck in depression or anxiety rather than feel the sadness involved with loss. That’s understandable, because suffering is painful and difficult to bear alone. A therapist can support an individual with strategies for finding hope that a broken heart will mend. The aim is to build trust that, by allowing the expression of these feelings, the energy spent on suffering can be freed and reinvested back into creating a fulfilling life. As you do with a broken shoulder, you pay attention to the pain and attend to it in healthy ways while nature takes its course, allowing broken bones or hearts to heal.

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. It involves conflicting feelings caused by the end of, or change in, a familiar pattern of behaviour. It is the feeling of reaching out for someone who has always been there, they are no longer there. The grief journey is so individual and unique, so our work with people who need loss support is also specific to our clients' needs. We help people properly diagnose their difficulties and help them make sense of their conflicting emotions so that they can move through life with more peace and certainty.

Grief is when your love has lost its place to land. When you lose a loved one that love can become toxic for you as the struggle to move through the stages of grief. Support during such a time is what we need rather than isolation. There may be times when we need to be alone but we are community creatures and need to belong, especially when we experience such things as the death of someone close to us.

Although therapy cannot help you replace who/what has been lost, it can help you come to accept the reality of the loss, to be able to look backwards and remember the good, and to be able to look forward with hope. Grief and loss therapy can be helpful for those who have lost a loved one, are going through a separation or divorce, lost a job, experienced an injury, received a medical diagnosis, or recently experienced a disappointment.
