My goal is to help you find this path. Whether faced with a lifetime of challenges, or impacted by a single traumatic event, I bring empathy, warmth, compassion and understanding to the relationship. From that place of safety, I will support you to find the road to acceptance, healing, and peace of mind.

I work from the firmly rooted belief that all people make sense. From this lens, I believe all of our parts and patterns have a purpose and that more often than not this purpose is to protect us. But why do these ways of protecting ourselves sometimes feel like they are doing the opposite? Together we will bring curiosity and compassion towards this question while adapting new perspectives and reorganizing patterns within yourself, your nervous system and your relationships.

I frequently hear from the people I support, that it feels like no one is really listening. Our existing relationships often don’t allow us to be SEEN and HEARD accurately, in the way that we need to be seen and heard. My goal as a therapist, is to offer a compassionate, non-judgmental presence, where you can feel seen, heard, and valued. It is my belief that through a collaborative counselling relationship we can start to become more connected to ourselves, as well as to those around us.

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.
