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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Many people who have experienced a loss describe this as one of the most emotionally painful experiences they have faced in their life. Naturally, we lean on the support and guidance of family and friends to help us through these difficult times. At times, it's important to acknowledge that the support and knowledge of a compassionate and unbiased professional may be needed. Counselling for grief and loss will allow you to speak about the things that have been so difficult to talk about, explore the experience of the loss and the meaning made of the loss, and work towards gentle healing through cultivating self-compassion, acceptance, and growth.

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!

In today's society, we are expected to "suck it up and move on" in situations related to loss. However, grief has a mind of its own. It shows up when we don't expect it. It comes back when we thought we've dealt with it. Trying to avoid it and numb it out only makes it stronger. Therapy can help you heal. Whether you have lost a loved one through death or a relationship ending, have gone through a difficult life transition or are grieving the loss of something else important to you, we will work together to practice ways to sit with, honour, transform and heal grief in a supportive, non-judgmental and compassionate space.

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.

Grief is complicated. You can experience grief from any kind of loss or disappointment in your life. My approach and my associates' approach to grief and loss is personalized; everyone experiences grief and loss differently so we believe their therapy should reflect the stage of grief and loss they find themselves in. Using mindfulness and guided reflection, you and I or one of my associates will work towards building a greater sense of peace and integration regarding the grief and loss you've experienced.

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.

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,

Grief is one of the hardest things many of us ever experience. It is a trauma that is held in our body as well. It can be all consuming and painful in many ways. But if we try to ignore it, I find it simply gets louder, becoming depressive and anxiety like symptoms. Grief is intense because it needs the space to be processed. It may not go away completely, but there will be a life without it taking over. You will get through this and learn to manage it. We will get through it together.

Individual therapy is focused on your unique needs and goals. Individual therapy includes learning about your history and life experiences then establishing goals to accomplish in counselling. Our histories are the roots that provide us with a foundation of strength and resilience. But, our histories can also hold the stories that cause pain, insecurity and doubt. It is our belief that the best therapy comes from helping to heal the roots that cause those stuck points. Through this we can create lasting change.

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.

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.
