Experiencing a significant loss can have a dramatic impact on how we cope and feel. Grief is not a sign of weakness, it is a normal and natural emotional reaction to loss or change of any kind. The passing of a loved one, divorce, loss of job, are all experiences that can cause grief. Even positive change can create a sense of loss about the situation we are leaving. We all experience grief uniquely and in our own time. Some people don't allow themselves to grieve fully and this can lead to more suffering. Working with a therapist can help you through your pain and awaken compassion and acceptance in your heart.

When a person has experienced the loss of someone or something significant, it is not uncommon for them to experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, a sense of confusion or "being at a loss", as well as difficulty experiencing happiness and joy. At New Roots Therapy, we acknowledge that these feelings - as well as many others - may emerge for you as you move through your own experience of grief and loss. We believe that, in working with grief and loss, it is not just about "moving past" or "letting go". Rather, our hope is to honour the uniqueness of your experience and to help you connect your feelings of grief to the importance of the lost relationship on your life.

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.

Grief and Loss are experiences that all of us have throughout our lives. Sometimes by surprise, other times the result of one of the many significant life transitions that can lead us to despair and heartache. Such losses weigh heavy on the human heart and soul. Whether it be the death of a loved one, the departure of one once loved, a sudden illness or a change of life plan, you will feel nourished from the support I will provide to you. Working together, I will help you in the process of grieving and resolving the thoughts and feelings that such an experience can bring forth. It is important that you have the time needed to reflect and be able to move on, when the time is right for you.

Grief is a natural response to the loss of someone or something very dear to us. Losses that may lead to grief include the death or separation of a loved one, loss of a job, death or loss of a beloved pet, or any number of other changes in life. Anyone can experience grief and loss, but each person is unique in how he or she copes with these feelings.

867 Bradley Drive, Whitby, Ontario L1N 8L9 | 905-430-3538

Dr. Smith became a psychologist as a direct result of a traumatic loss when his brother Donald was killed by a train when Donald was l2 and Dr. Smith was a little boy. This loss caused Dr. Smith to be paralyzed with grief for several years. Dr. Smith is a recovered grief survivor because of his willingness to get professional help and training. No one should have to do this job alone. Lack of recovery from grief results in severe physical and emotional problems, including marital dysfunction, substance abuse, accidents, failure at work, relationships problems and unhappiness.

Drawing upon the work of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross ("On Death & Dying" and "On Grief and Grieving"), I support people in their grieving journey, assessing the challenges and also the strengths each person has to most effectively adjust to loss and develop effective coping strategies. Ultimately, finding ways to carry this loss and grief in the most graceful way possible is the goal to be attained. Courage and faith along with a growing spiritual understanding and openness contribute greatly to the success of this work.

After a loss, it is not uncommon to feel helpless, sad, anxious, fearful, or depressed. We understand that the emotional pain you may be feeling makes it hard to live life as it was before the loss. We are here to help you to navigate through the pain, we are here to help you to understand the loss and its impact on you, and we are here to ultimately help you to develop better strategies to cope with the loss and adjust to this new reality. Our approach to therapy means that we are committed to collaborating with you throughout this process in a compassionate and accepting atmosphere.

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.
