About

I am certified in Grief and Bereavement education, in good standing with the ADEC and CCPA. I work from a person-centered approach and believe that each individual is the expert of their own life. Having experienced first-hand the physical, emotional and mental stress and anxiety brought on by illness and disease such as cancer, and related losses, my devotion, and passion lies in walking with you through what is a turbulent journey, one that does not need to be faced alone. I have completed my Master of Counselling and field practicum under the supervision of Dr. Bassam Khoury (www.drkhoury-montrealtherapist.com).
My hope is to give you hope, a genuine listening ear, in a safe, non-judgemental space, where we, together, can work on creating tools to support you and help relieve your present distress.
Together we can work on helping you find inner peace and emotional balance. We work on your strengths and learn new tools to help you build self confidence and self resilience.

On-Line Grief & Loss Support Group

The hope of this group is to provide you an opportunity to share your pain, grief story and journey. Reminding one another of our shared humanity, the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters and that death is very much a part of life. This group is about YOU, your time and space to share your story in a safe and non-judgemental environment. Confidentiality is of utmost importance. This group is not a therapy group but a peer support group, not intended to replace any medical advice.
