Grief and loss can take on many different forms; from the loss of your partner, a family member, a pet, or a job. It can feel overwhelming, suffocating, and confusing. Speaking to a psychotherapist can help to process emotions, address unresolved issues, and provide a safe space for what may be a difficult conversation. Nancy can help facilitate that conversation with you, provide you a safe space to explore thoughts, and find ways to get you into a better mind space.

Dealing with a loss, any type of loss, takes time. People often associate grief and loss with a death. It's time to expand that definition in order to understand that grieving takes place in all areas of life- such as the loss of a job, marriage and even a friendship. All of these losses must be grieved, understood and sympathized with. We must allow ourselves to go through the grieving process, which has no time limit, in order to move on and heal.

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. I offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. 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.

Whether it be the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship or job, dealing with life's changes is incredibly hard. Change is inevitable, but it very often brings with it many negative feelings. I help clients process their grief by allowing those feelings a voice in a safe environment. I help clients to understand and make sense of their grief. As we work through the loss, we will begin to explore what change looks like and how to move forward.

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.

I walk with my clients in their journey of grieving, through their difficult time as they try to understand their loss and their feelings. I offer them a safe space and time to understand their feelings for their losses. There are many other kinds of losses in our lives. We may lose our loved ones, our health, our physical mobility, our relationships with others, our dreams or our jobs. These are losses which we may not realize that we need to grieve. We may feel that something is not quite right.

It takes great courage to experience grief and survive loss. I can teach you how to be present to your own vast and deep emotions in a way that allows your body to release and your spirit to expand and become more through loss. Through the most difficult experiences, we discover our strength. We each have a unique path to discover. Through learning to respect our own timing, we allow ourselves to stay long enough in our sadness to develop a relationship of respect and honoring that empowers us to move on when we are ready.

Experiencing grief and loss is part of the human condition. The loss of a loved one, or a pet, or a painful life event are all some of the most difficult things we will go through. I have worked as a therapist and counsellor for close to 30 years, and not everyone goes through the 'five stages of grief' in the same way - or in the same order. You will find your own way through grief and loss, with empathetic guidance and therapy from me, as you learn to release the pain.

I believe that grief and loss are invitations to move more deeply into our experience of self and I support you as you embrace what is painful and expand your capacity to hold tolerably both pain and joy. We are learning that the brain cannot numb just one thing. When we numb the pain of loss because it is overwhelming all of our experiences of life are dulled and diminished leading to a sense of flatness and or depression and sometimes a frenetic business to stay away from our own heart's call. Together we will knit the wounds of life into a strong and vibrant heart!
