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.

Coping with Grief & Loss Losing someone or something you love is very painful. After a significant loss, you may experience all kinds of difficult and surprising emotions, such as shock, anger, and guilt. Sometimes it may feel like the sadness will never let up. While these feelings can be frightening and overwhelming, they are normal reactions to loss. Accepting them as part of the grieving process and allowing yourself to feel what you feel is necessary for healing. There is no right or wrong way to grieve — but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain. You can get through it!

Grief and loss comes in many different forms from the death of a loved one or pet, to the loss of a relationship, job or something else that was important to you. Every person experiences grief and loss differently but one thing that is common to all of us is the benefit of having a safe place to work through your thoughts and feelings to arrive at a place of more peace and acceptance.

Grief, loss, and bereavement, whether it is the passing of a loved one, the end of a career, or the falling-apart of a relationship are all similar: we are losing or have lost an important part of our lives. Understanding the emotions, feelings, and behaviours we have when we experience grief and bereavement is part of helping us accept what has occurred, why we feel the way that we are feeling, and what is next for us. In working with clients on grief, loss, and bereavement it is important to understand that the way we process these experiences is unique to each person, and the pillar of respect is paramount.

At some point in our lifetimes, everybody is faced with grief and loss, children and youth included. When counseling my young clients, it is evident that children and youth have many questions and feelings surrounding this issue. They often feel scared, sad and alone. Talking to a therapist is a good way for clients to face their feelings and make sense of the situation. I help children normalize these feelings so that they know it is okay to feel sad, it is okay to have questions, and they are not alone. The pain may never go away but releasing the emotions and gaining some perspective and understanding, makes it easier to move forward a day at a time.

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.

After loosing someone close to you it is often hard to find emotional balance. Therapy can provide you with a safe space to process your loss and the difficult emotions that often follow. Feeling sad, lonely, angry, and confused are all normal and healthy emotions to experience during this time. Working with a therapist can help you through these tough emotions as well as how to feel normal and happy again.

Addressing grief and loss in therapy has profound benefits by providing a supportive environment to process emotions, express feelings, and find meaning after the loss. I can help you navigate the stages of grief, reduce feelings of isolation, and possibly preventing complicated grief or depression. Through therapy, I can help you develop coping strategies, build resilience, and ultimately find a path toward healing and acceptance.

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.

I can help you work through the difficult and extreme emotions that often accompany grief. I am happy to support you.

Life is a wonderful journey. Everyone has events that occur that can create waves of grief and loss. The pain may feel unbearable. These are times where we can learn profound life lessons about love, strength, and resilience. I approach Grief & Loss Therapy not as a time to "fix" or "cure" you of your pain, but as a partner to walk with you as you travel through your valleys of loss and sorrow.

My approach to assisting with loss and grieving is to normalize the experience...loss of someone or something we love creates grief. Helping people learn how to best withstand and manage the emotions, the way loss can stop you in your tracks, and how to begin moving again is vital work. The bottom line is that, as long as you love, you grieve. We CAN learn to manage.

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

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.

Grief and loss are inevitable and an inescapable part of life. Grief can of course include the loss of someone to death, but it can also be ambiguous. Ambiguous loss can include the loss of relationships, family connections, our identities, our careers, or even who we were pre-pandemic? Grief around post-traumatic events or grieving the loss of a childhood you never had are also types of losses and grief that I can help you with.

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.
