I've been counselling in private practice in Halifax and Vancouver for over 9 years and my focus is working with adults who suffer from anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression are catch-all phrases for a variety of symptoms and can result from a multitude of causes, and while these are common experiences, they may become problematic if it interferes with our daily living. Anxiety and depression may stem from unresolved experiences such as past trauma, grief and loss events, health issues, relationship problems, workplace challenges, to name just a few.

I understand what it feels like to experience loss.
From time to time, we all face challenges that can be overwhelming. Sometimes these challenges are situational, but they can also be the result of our lived experience(s) over time. Often they manifest as anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and self harm. These manifestations can lead to further challenges such as job loss, family conflict, isolation, and addiction. Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well.

Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Nova Scotia grief counsellor, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Nova Scotia.
