I have a special interest in supporting and holding space for young people who are grieving the death of an important person.
I know how important it is to have support, connection, and safety to explore life’s biggest joys, obstacles, and everything in between. I approach our work together from a client-centred, integrative, and holistic view; exploring possibilities to support all parts of the self: mind, body, and soul. My relationships are built through curiosity, compassion, and authenticity, and I also deeply believe in the power of joy, laughter, and play where it feels right. Together, we can create a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and questions.

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, challenging relationships, loss of a sense of self, or trauma that affects your day-to-day life or relationships? Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, frustrated, lost by what it means to live up to someone else’s standards, just getting through the day, or the thought that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel? Do you hope that your days could be better? Now more than ever, children, teens, and adults are feeling uncertain. Not addressing these everyday challenges can lead to decreased quality of life. I believe there is hope and answers to having the life you deserve.

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.
