Unfortunately, we will all face grief and loss some time in our lives. Fortunately, it is possible to recover and move forward in life. Through counselling, I can help you: understand the impact of the loss (e.g., on your mood, functioning, behaviour and general well-being); how to grieve the loss in a healthy way; and how to move forward with hope, confidence and success.

Grief and loss are an inevitable part of life, and yet can feel so isolating when it touches you. We don't talk about loss very much in our culture, there is no way to "fix" the problem of loss. Grief and loss are more manageable when the experience is shared. I am honoured to have walked this journey with many clients and although every story is unique there are elements that are similar, including exploring feelings of guilt, and relief. It would be a privledge to share your story,

Grieving is how heart's heal. It can be a wilderness without a map and we need wise, caring, patient companions to support us. Having skilled, compassionate support makes it easier to be caring and patient with ourselves. Together we listen to your heart's wisdom to guide your healing process. While healing takes time, it is also true that in the process comes transformation and renewal for life and living. Together, we explore how this is possible for you.

The connections we make with people, animals or things are rarely simple or one-dimensional. So when these connections are lost or changed, they can have a significant impact on our lives. Each individual and connection is unique, so our work together will explore and process the myriad of conflicting or uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and sensation you may be experiencing. Adapting to new roles, developing new ways of connecting with family and friends and managing changes will be the additional ways we can honour the past relationship and navigate a new path.

When an individual experiences grief and loss, he or she may need help moving through denial, making sense of what has happened, working through anger, and regaining his or her trust in life. My job is to not only listen compassionately and respectfully, but to also help you process your thoughts, emotions, and fears as best as possible--in short, to help you find your direction again.

I draw on personal experience and training to help my clients make meaning of their loss. Grief is a journey that takes time and work but with support and encouragement, there can be hope for a better day ahead. Grief counselling is very individualized in that there is no correct way to grief. I also specialize in different types of loss which may include death of pet, loss of job, loss of independence (i.e., elderly or loss of motor skills resulting from an accident).

Losing a loved one to suicide is incredibly painful. Mixed feelings of confusion, anger, responsibility, and terrible pain can leave you feeling alone. Some people still struggle to talk about losses that happen by suicide. This kind of loss is complex. Learning to manage it, learning to talk about it, in a safe and supported environment, can be very helpful. You do not need to manage this grief alone.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Because loss can't be prevented, grief is inevitable. However, we do not always grieve our most significant losses. It is often far too painful to ‘go there’, and the needed support for doing so may be lacking. Yet non-resolution of often many other strong associated feelings, and experience of sorrow that is not expressed, can harm us by constraining our vitality and perspective on life, robbing us of “aliveness” itself. We can remain ‘stuck’, "depressed", harmed physically by stress effects while compromising our close relationships. Grieving can be greatly obstructed by unprocessed hurts from our earlier life, especially childhood, ie, unfelt prior losses, requiring skillful assessment.

Grief and Loss counselling is helpful to break out of isolation and resume contact with oneself and the world around you. Understanding the grief process makes it more manageable and less overwhelming. Counselling helps you to make sense of what is happening in your life and can be a ray of hope while in a dark and lonely place. You cannot "fast-forward" the grief process...however, you can find constructive ways to move through it instead of getting stuck in it!

You are grieving and you want me to help you feel better. Unfortunately, if you've lost a loved one or had other losses in your life, I can't change what's happened to you. Instead, I can teach you how to embrace your grief, to stay with your difficult feelings. By doing so, you open the door to self-change and the chance to discover meaning in your life.

The trauma of loosing a someone special in your life can bring up mixed emotions. Grief is never predictable and can leave you feeling crazy and overwhelmed. Grief is a unique experience that often leaves you feeling alone and isolated. The emotions come in waves of intensity which can be unpredictable. I offer a safe place to debrief about your feelings without being judged or dismissed.

I believe that while death and other losses are a natural part of life, sometimes it can trigger a complex response or maybe it just feels too big to handle on your own. A therapist can help you make sense of what has happened and understand your emotional responses to the loss. I will help you care for yourself and your loved ones through the process and help you access your support system.

Are you feeling kind of lost, disoriented, with no energy, now that he/ she/ they/ it are gone? Any kind of loss implies a change and any kind of change implies a loss. It can be from losing another person, a pet, a job, an expectation, a friendship, relocating and/ or loss of health/ a change in your body/ or a reaction following a natural disaster or a violent event. Have you tried to just "take it; tough it out" and not given yourself the time to really grieve and heal? Adela can facilitate your healthy grieving. Through this process you can find your ground and re-create your life in a new way.

You are feeling lost and lonely, as the result of the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of a part of yourself due to an accident or chronic illness. Grief robs us of what we had, leaving us to feel despair. While we cannot bring back what has been lost, we can work together to understand your grief, in order to help you feel more functional again.

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.

There is intangible and tangible loss both of which are important to acknowledge and allow the individual to grieve in their manner. Having patience and understanding of where the individual is at with their grief is important to help them cope and build strategies to move on with their life. It is important to understand the stages of grief and loss and to acknowledge the stages don't always happen in order, in a timely way, or that all stages are even reached. Grieving for each indivudal is different, it is important for a therapist to recognize and validate for the indivudal seeking counseling that what they are feeling is normal.

The journey through loss or grief can be difficult and can sometimes feel overwhelming. I can help get through the difficult times and places where people sometimes get 'stuck'. My certificate from UWO in Grief and Bereavement gave me the necessary training but I also have the experience and ability to hear and walk with hurting people. Death of a loved one, relationship loss, empty nest, or job loss are only a few of the life losses that people grieve. I can help.
