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.

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 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.

Perhaps you are facing health challenges, or you are caring for a loved one who is. Such health issues may have really impacted your daily life. Perhaps you anticipate the loss of a loved one or have already experienced this loss. You know you want to establish support to cope through this time as comfortably as you can, and/or to adjust as best you can without losing yourself entirely along the way.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet or job is a process that doesn't have to be undertaken alone. The Refuge's team of specialized therapists can help you to honour your feelings and where you are at in your grieving, to take the time you need, to find ways of addressing the incidental responsibilities and worries that come with loss, to honour the importance of the loss in your life through ritual, writing, art or other means, and to find ways of creating meaning and acceptance in order to move on. Complex grief, associated with trauma, can also be addressed, and we can teach you emotion regulation skills to help you face overwhelming pain with greater resiliency.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist

1011 Upper Middle Rd E, Oakville, Ontario

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.

Have you had a loss in your life? Are you feeling sad and angry at times, or just feeling that you need to talk further about this experience? Coming to counselling can help you work through your feelings. Often people feel that they are struggling with moving forward, and have difficulty picturing life with the loss they have experienced. I can help you work through the difficult and extreme emotions that often accompany grief.

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 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.

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.
