There is a myriad of reasons we experience grief, ...from a career loss, the death of a loved one, or facing a terminal or chronic illness. It's really not the event that hurts, it's how our brains decide to deal with the event. Integrated psychotherapy and coaching helps - particularly as I have 'been there, done that.' Talk with someone who really gets it. I've been through all of the above and come out the other end content. I even recently was diagnosed with cancer and after a winter of chemo and radiation and am glad to say the doctors tell me we have it beat! And from the moment I heard the word cancer, I knew things would be ok. How so? Give me a call and let's talk.

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.

Losing a loved one can bring up a breadth of feelings that can often seem overwhelmingly difficult to manage.

Loss can take other forms as well...such as the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship, or the loss of health. Together we will discuss your pain and come to understand the impact your loss has had on you. We will then develop new ways to manage your loss so that you can move forward again.

Residential Addiction Program

Toronto, Toronto, Ontario M5E 1W7 | (647) 479-4347

Grief and loss are frequently a root cause of substance abuse, addiction and disorders. The grief process tends to deplete a person's resources, taking up a great deal of their physical, mental, and emotional energy. The absence is not the only thing they are mourning. Their plans, dreams and wishes have changed, and they are being required to let go of the future they anticipated. The phases of mourning include a desire to reverse the loss, feelings of pain and chaos, and the reordering of one's life. At Valiant Recovery, clients receive personalized grief counseling tailored to their needs, as well as specialized sessions on grief and loss.

Individuals often come to see me for therapy in my practice in the downtown area of Toronto in order to help them cope with grief, bereavement, and difficulty adjusting to painful loss. For some clients this includes the loss of a close family member, for others this includes the loss of an intimate relationship. In either case, the opportunity to discuss such losses and to understand their impact is an important part of the psychotherapy process.

We all must deal with grief sometime in our lives. However, there are times we lose someone dear to us and it feels as if we will never see the sun again. Processing our loss through therapy helps to make that dark journey less difficult and in time blur the sharp painful edges of pain. During therspy we will look at and restructure negative debilitating thoughts and replacing them with more constructive and positive ones. We never fully get over the loss, but we learn how to celebrate and cherish our missed loved ones.

Clients who are experiencing grief and loss can benefit from a better understanding of how the deep emotions and feelings can support new growth and ways at looking at the world. By considering elements of the experience through memory, dreams, and reflections, great power and strength can be found. Grief and loss are normal and healthy states of being, as long as they don't overwhelm and debilitate, understanding them in the context of therapy will not only benefit the individual but those around them and generations to come.

Grief is a natural process, and part of being human. However, it can be a lonely process, and debilitating. I am here to listen, to feel with you, and to share where in your life you have experienced loss. As someone who has experienced loss, I understand the many ways it can impact our lives. There is no one way, or "right" way to grieve. There is YOUR way.

The loss of a loved one can be a devastating experience. It is natural to feel sad, empty, and emotionally disoriented. If you suppress your natural feelings of grief, you might gradually become numb and apathetic. Psychotherapy can help you feel and experience such complex emotions as denial, sadness, guilt, and anger typically associated with the experience of loss. Once you allow yourself to express, process, and understand the meaning of these feelings, you would be ready to put them to rest and reconnect with life. Once you experience your grief in a deeply genuine way, you would no longer be held back by crippling emotions.

Grief is an inevitable part of life and never the same for any two people. Whatever the cause– the death of a loved one, a pet, a job, relationships, or children leaving home, grief counseling can help people cope with loss, change and grief. It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss, without trying to change or run away from it, but to approach it with openness, compassion, and acceptance.

We are seldom prepared for grief and loss. Yet through it, we often discover new strength and resilience. This is not what we feel at first . Sadness, self doubt, and feeling overwhelmed by the simplest task may cloud your days. Finding ways to make sense of the loss and changes in your life can open new meaning and purpose going forward. You do not have to do this alone. Grief counseling can help you along the way.

Dealing with grief requires addressing the many layers of life that grief touches. Facing the loss of a loved one can also bring up reminders of other losses we have experienced - some of which may still feel unresolved, and are now coming to the surface along with the acute pain that the current situation brings. Since grief is ultimately about loss of connection, my approach involves finding unique ways of "reconnecting" and healing the wounds that can be left behind when a painful loss has been experienced. I provide a safe and compassionate environment to assist in healing through grief and understanding all aspects of the grieving process as it evolves.

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.

An experience of loss can be tangible such as termination from a job, death of a loved one, etc. It can also come during happy occasions, such as a wedding. While this is a celebrated occasion it can represent a loss for parents whose children move away, or a loss of singleness for the one marrying. While loss is often intangible, it can create intense grief. My work with loss and grief deals with the underlying emotions such as anger, sadness, denial, depression, hopelessness, etc. These emotions can often appear, resolve and re-appear at different times of life or during special occasions. Ultimately, acceptance and peace comes through the act of grieving which leads to reorganization.

Grief, another powerful emotion we experience when dealing with loss, is a conditioning that affects all human beings. In our society there is often a notion that we should hurry up and get over our grief but maybe we should grieve as long as we need to. One way to see loss is to see loss as change and then to let change in. By developing a practice of loving kindness towards ourselves and others we can take a gentler approach toward loss and pain.

Grief can result not just from loss of a loved one, but from the inability to realize a goal or dream. I work collaboratively with my clients to overcome perceived or actual barriers to their goals that we can address. When a goal cannot be realized, I help my clients with changing their expectations, perspectives and, ultimately, with acceptance.
