Carole Walker, Hon. Psych., MSW, RSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker

If you have recently lost a loved one, first, I want to express my condolences. The death of a loved one or the loss of a significant relationship is the most stressful event we can experience. I can offer you support and practical strategies to navigate through the process of healing, help you adjust emotionally, and help you develop sound and lasting coping skills that will allow you to progress forward at your pace. I also provide therapeutic support for those who anticipate the loss of a loved one.

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.

People have a range of responses to the experience of grief or loss. Grief is a normal response. If you are experiencing a sense of loss, then you might want support or a sounding board to process this loss. Occasionally, a grief experience becomes a "complicated loss". It becomes difficult to re-engage life. You may want help in processing your loss. You might have questions about death, grieving, faith and/or spirituality. If you're ready to process some of these questions, please call.

I have personally suffered a great loss in my life, as a result, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to work with clients who have also suffered similar tragedies. Textbook grief therapy is not enough. My experience has helped me formulate a deep understanding of the particular fears, sadness, and problems one faces while dealing with a profound loss.

Grief and loss is a normal and appropriate response to the loss of a loved one, past trauma, the loss of a nurturing and loving childhood, deployment/unemployment as well as many other unwanted circumstances. Giving yourself the time and compassion to move through this necessary process allows you to emerge with a renewed sense of hope and empowerment to move into a new and empowered life.

In life we are faced with many losses. Grief is a deep, painful and primal emotion. The most profound experience is the death of a parent, spouse or child - made more difficult when they die young. A divorce or separation is another serious loss but the grief and sadness is complicated by the mix of fear, pain and anger. When your young adult children have left home your 'empty nest' may bring on sadness. If your aging parent develops dementia you experience a long slow grief. It is important not to bottle up your feelings of grief. Isolation makes matters worse. Talking to another person about your loss can help lift your mood and see more options.

It is common to feel 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 flexibly move between sitting with and distracting from your grief so that you may both honor the memory of your loved one while also taking small steps to move forward.

Most people will experience loss sometime in their life. Grief, which is a reaction to loss, can result in a confusing range of emotions such as anger, sadness, fear and or regret. All of these can be directly impacted and affected by the manner in which your loved one died. My professional experience includes working with people coming to terms with sudden death, prolonged illness resulting in death and families of suicide victims. I honor the fact that the experience of grief as well as the time frame for the grieving process is unique for each person.

It is hard to believe the grief and anguish we suffer through grief and loss until you are experiencing it. Many well-wishers want to "get over it" and "move on." This truly is the time to have someone hold an empathic and sacred space for you to explore your grief with no judgments. Energy modalities help the process, they will not dissolve appropriate grief. They will help us gain a new perspective.
