It is normal and natural to grieve when you feel shock, sadness, loneliness, desperation, guilt, emptiness or even anger about a loss of any kind. You might have lost a beloved person, a relationship, a pet, your job, financial stability or your safety after having experienced trauma. Grieving is deeply personal. Each one of us experiences the process differently, and it is important to be aware of your needs on your journey of healing. Please allow me to listen to your story, to offer you a safe space and to gently help you cope with overwhelming and often frightening emotions. Please call 905-842-3626

My goal in grief and loss counselling is to partner with you as a companion, not an expert. In my office, and in my approach, you will find a safe place of quiet, compassion and understanding. Grief and loss are experienced in unique ways by each individual, and each individual’s way is legitimate. It is also essential that each individual mourn their loss in order to find healing and renewed strength.

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.

Sudden loss is the most painful experience we face whether it is of a loved family member or something very dear and meaningful to us (including a job or the vision we have of ourself), it is uniquely personal and finding a quiet and empathetic forum to "just talk" so that pent-up and mixed feelings are let go, and in this and this alone is what is called "moving on". Unexpressed feelings of loss are the source of ongoing emotional distress. Often, "depression" can mask long-term loss that has not been "resolved". I will help you both understand the context of your loss and to move beyond it in order to be healthy and resilient again.

We live in a culture that rarely discusses grief and the grieving process and as a result, people often struggle with trying to understand their feelings and why they aren't feeling better sooner. And then some deaths we experience are especially difficult - the loss of a spouse or a child, for example. Grief Therapy can help clients better understand the grieving process, validate their feelings, give them permission to grieve and help them in adapting to the loss of a loved one. Compassion and a safe space to grieve, helps us to heal from these kinds of wounds.

Maybe you are in shock or feeling emotional, spiritual and physical anguish. Betrayal, job loss, terminal illness and death are a few causes of grief. Your experience is unique and loss is personal. Loss is an inevitable part of life, growth and confidence in the future can result from dealing effectively with grief. My aim is to provide a therapeutic and supportive environment in which you can recover meaning and purpose.

Grief is a natural part of losing someone, a relationship or tragic event that is more than every day sadness. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Only your way. Some people get angry, some quiet and withdrawn, some walk around in a heavy fog for weeks or months. Multiple losses in a short time, loss of a parent or child, these key relationships trigger the grief process. Grief often involves bargaining, anger, denial, depression, mobilizing, testing, to reach acceptance. For over 20 years, I've helped clients with intense grief reactions, including survivors of suicide. It is important to get the support for your particular bereavement and rebuild your life again.

Grief and loss can be difficult to work through. Many individuals try to ignore or completely forget about the grief or loss altogether. This generally leads to more difficulties in their functioning. My approach helps clients come to an increased awareness about how this loss has impacted them and develop coping mechanisms using compassion and mindfulness that will diminish the negative impacts grief can have on our relationships, work and overall functioning.
