I help people understand and accept all of the complex emotions that arise after any loss. Each person goes through a unique process of grieving. I collaborate with my patients to develop the treatment approach that is most helpful for them. I treat each patient with compassion and respect. Therapy may be short or long term and may address issues such as conflicts with family, unresolved feelings, anger, nightmares, sleep disruption, weight loss or gain, reaching out to others for support, work-place issues, and resuming ones' usual lifestyle. I help patients distinguish grief from depression.

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.

We're not meant to take the journey of grief alone or in isolation. Whether grieving the death of a loved one, or the ambiguous loss of a miscarriage, grief often makes us reassess everything - nothing is as it was. We need support through this terrain and benefit from a caring guide to help us navigate. We can help. We're here to accompany you on this journey and will help you take the time you need to rediscover yourself and your life.

With Gestalt therapy the five tasks of mourning, are supported: (1) To accept the reality of the loss, (2) To experience the pain of grief, (3) To adjust to the environment in which the deceased is missing, (4) To withdraw (some) emotional energy and reinvest it in another relationship, and (5) To find a place for and maintain a continuing bond with what we lose, however not in any specific order. A gestalt therapist supports the bereaved with an emphasis on a "loving authentic presence and communication that allows expression of EACH other’s personhood" so that feelings are honored and explored at the clients own pace. The here and now is emphasized and that is what leads to support/change

Grief and loss are significant life experiences that can be difficult to manage. I have heard from many that sometimes it seems like the extreme sadness will not leave them. I work with such clients to try and make space in their life to experience positive emotions along with the sadness. Grief is very individual and some clients desire help to "move past the grief", while others do not agree with this. I work to meet clients where they are, to optimize their day to day life experiences according to their own individual hopes. In addition, I help clients to find meaning in their experience of grief and loss, honour the life of their lost loved one, and manage the related difficult emotions.

Grief and loss do not only occur on clear losses such as illness, death and divorce. There are many other times that we are mourning, loss of youth, money, health etc. If yo are unable to complete the mourning process and get on with your life, it is time to get counseling. My approach is to determine the reason for the problem. Are there feelings which you can't feel, such as anger, relief and being alone? Or is the problem that there are earlier losses you haven't mourned, or a sense you have to be strong for everyone else.
