In our busy lives, we sometimes bypass this need, or seek it out in relationships, activities and thinking patterns that leave us feeling anxious, exhausted and lonely. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, a life transition or a loss, I would love to walk with you to create a supportive environment for healing, growth and change.

Do you ever feel like you're losing connection with yourself and the people around you? Are your own needs constantly taking a backseat on your never-ending to-do list? Do you wonder if there's more to life, a deeper sense of happiness that seems elusive? In today's fast-paced world, it's no surprise that many of us are grappling with heightened levels of anxiety, feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about how to navigate relationships, careers, and the overall chaos of life. Maybe you've been pushing aside your own needs, neglecting that essential "me time," and it's starting to take a toll on your well-being.

I work with individuals who have experienced childhood trauma, PTSD, grief and loss, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, relationship issues, stress, and life transitions.
Do you feel you may not be living as an authentic version of yourself? Are you haunted by your past? Struggling to move forward? Do you feel overwhelmed with anxiety, flashbacks, anxious-avoidant patterns, or impulsive tendencies? As humans, we have an innate need to feel seen, heard, validated, and safe. Seeking therapy is a step towards self-awareness and healing. The differences between our rational and emotional brain can make us feel disconnected and recognizing our internal dualities can be helpful. Reconnecting with our inner child, processing grief, and holding space for our emotions can be liberating and empowering.

Grief Counsellors

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
