Hi I'm Kristen. I am a Registered Social Worker, specializing in Grief, Bereavement and Loss, Palliative/End of Life Care and Geriatric Social Work. I believe in providing strength based, person centred, holistic care. Grief is unique to each of us, grief does not follow a timeline, and everyone navigates it differently. I acknowledge that grief can be complex and messy, and it is okay to not be okay. I often tell clients and have heard from clients that grief is the club no one wants to be a member of. Grief is a universal human experience, which we do not choose or want. "Grief is the price we pay for love."

My goal as a therapist is to create a connection that allows for curiosity, risk-taking, fun and emotional safety so that you feel empowered to share in sessions. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, life-transitions, grief, relationship issues, or questions around identity I would love to explore this with you. I enjoy connecting people to their emotions and will often aim to increase connection between your emotions and your body so you feel empowered to express your feelings and increase self-trust. Emotions have important information for us and feeling them in the presence of another is sometimes all that's needed.

I walk with these people in their grief, hear the stories of their homeland, help them discover community and connection, and guide them in rediscovering what their culture means to them.
Immigrants who desire to re-integrate parts of their culture of origin after immigrating to Canada. They often feel rootless and lost, having to assimilate out of survival. These people grieve silently, can often feel isolated and misunderstood, and sometimes bare shame, fear, and regret for what was lost during their migration. They want to have a successful life in Canada and honour their heritage, so that requires a balance of cultures that sometimes conflict or contradict.

I combine my personal experience as a chronic warrior and a family caregiver with my professional knowledge and experience to provide compassionate, client-focused therapy & counselling for ADHD, chronic illness, depression, caregiving, grief & loss, anxiety, couples & sex therapy, addictions (alcohol/drugs, sex & gambling), self-esteem, trauma, and burnout.
Living with a chronic illness or disability, or being a family caregiver for a loved one, is complicated and life-changing. Chronic pain, fatigue, medical trauma, burnout, and isolation are all very real challenges that can take a negative toll on your mental health and impact your relationships. I know you have had to do a ton of advocating for yourself or your loved one to ensure needs are being met, and there still remain far too many barriers to getting the support you deserve. You should not have to do this alone. It IS possible to regain control of your life and have a supportive team collaborating with you to meet your goals!
