I have a strong skill set in supporting clients with depression, grief anxiety, and navigating the impact of complex trauma.
I provide a safe supportive space where we engage in meaningful authentic conversations. I support each person as a unique individual by meeting them exactly where they are on their journey. I utilize a holistic approach which encourages each individual to reclaim their autonomy through a life which focuses on balancing mind, spirit, body and soul. I will teach you ways to regulate your autonomic nervous system (taking you out of survival mode and into a relaxed state). Together we can rediscover your inner trust, turn suffering into strength, explore your experiences, values, dreams, and discover your purpose in life.

The impact of trauma on a person's suffering and how they cope can manifest in many negative ways. Anxiety, depression, loss of self-worth, hopelessness and an inability to care for oneself emotionally and psychologically are common issues. A person may be easily triggered, become more reactive, or shut down completely. This in turn can impact their personal and professional relationships. To pursue a life of calmness requires all our inner strength, our courage, commitment to self and the spirit of championing change.

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.
