Whatever the cause, it can be painfill and if not properly grieved and mourned it can be become 'unresolved grief.

We often don’t know what to say when we encounter someone who is in mourning, and in the process, sometimes unwittingly say things can be insensitive. We don’t really understand the grieving process, often misunderstanding why, either ourselves or others, haven’t ‘gotten over it’ in a suitable amount of time. These attitudes can leave people undergoing the grieving process experiencing such feelings as loneliness, being misunderstood and out of step—just to name a few. If our loss is due to incidents of suicide, miscarriage, or the death of a pet, our feelings of being outside of the norm can increase. Grieving is hard work. It takes as long as it takes. There is no standard time frame.

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.

Losses come in different shapes and sizes. Grief can follow the experience of any major loss including the loss of an important relationship, loss of good health, loss of an important dream, loss of a pet, loss of a job (Etc). There is no right way to feel or experience loss. Grief and loss can be a profound and often debilitating experience that is unfortunately silenced (or) stigmatized in our Society. My office is a safe place where you will feel supported and respected as together we work through the grieving process. I offer 15 minute initial consults free of charge so you can decide if the services I provide would be a good match for your needs.

Coping with the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet or job is a process that doesn't have to be undertaken alone. We 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 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, working through what's still being held in the body and exploring emotion regulation skills to help you face overwhelming pain with greater resiliency.

My intention is to hold a safe space where my clients feel supported through the whirl-wind of emotions and intense feelings that come up while dealing with grief and loss. Everyone’s journey is very personal and I want to help my clients honour what they need. I offer counselling before, during and after the death of a loved one as I feel having support at all of these stages can be helpful for healing. Grief and loss come in many other forms such as the loss of a job, pet, culture and lifestyle. All are valid and cause turmoil due to transition. I help to ease this turmoil by helping my clients help themselves come up with strategies to better cope.

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 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.

We will review your history and gain a perspective on the loss you are experiencing. we will define realistic expectations of how you are experiencing your loss together. Loss is a natural experience that often we place a lot of guilt and expectations beyond ourselves to "get over". Your loss is individual and you deserve to work through it in a way that fits for your needs- no one else's.
