Death.  Illness. Caregiving. Divorce. Anxiety. Life transitions. Addictions in families. Traumatic loss. These events can be complex and bewildering. It is an act of courage, not weakness,  to reach out to get support and information about these life changes. 
 
 I can help you by: 

   - Understanding and normalizing the facets of grief and loss
   - Navigating the intensity of grief by sharing information and strategies 
   - Expanding your capacity to hold this sorrow, regain your balance, and find ways to move forward.
   - I will listen and understand where you are and remind you of your strengths as you find new meaning and a new        identity.
    -Accessing your own compassion and personal power to complete the integration of this loss 
    - Understand and resolve anxiety and depression 
 
 You may begin with individual sessions and later join group counselling sessions.  The most powerful benefit of group sessions  is that your isolation is broken.  Your grief can be seen and shared with others. Each group session has information to help you understand yourself and how best to navigate this new life experience. 
 
My Credentials and Approach
 
 -  I hold  Masters in Counselling and I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor.
 - Over 10 years experience helping youth, adults, and seniors
-  You will find that I do not pathologize any symptoms or behaviors. I believe they are in place to help you,  but over time become overused and disrupt your life and relationships
- I use an integrated approach that utilizes Person Centred, Compassionate Inquiry, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative and Solutions Focused therapies.  Presently I am completing my Trauma Informed Certificate. 
 
Free 30 minute consultation is available. It is important to find the right person that brings you comfort and safety. It is important to find the person with the training and skills to address the concern you want resolved. It is important that you have access and convenience in receiving this support.   
 
Cost: $125 per session   Invoice is provided for you to submit to your insurance provider. A sliding scale is available to give access to all.   
 
My Story
As a retired school counsellor I came to this work after I lost my partner to cancer. While he was in palliative care, a spark glimmered that this may be the next way to served others.  I was not ready to get back to counselling for a couple years. Then, I completed specialized training in the area of grief and loss and trauma informed care.  I provide online sessions so can reach others from all over the province.
