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.

Since everyone is unique and grieves differently, my approach to grief therapy is to tailor counselling to fit with the needs and experiences of the individual person. I offer a safe supportive environment where people can feel free to talk in depth about their deceased loved one; learn how to better understand and cope with their personal reactions to the pain of grief (emotional, physical, behavioural, and spiritual); explore new ways of staying connected to and remembering the loved one who has died; and learn to adjust to a different life than the one they used to know.

Tx can be offered individually for parent/child or jointly. Puppetry, story telling, art, role playing, sand trays and dollhouses and figurines will be used to help children make meaning of their losses.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.
