Elizabeth Hides, MSW, RSW, CT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Calgary
Have you experienced a death or a loss recently or in your past? Are you feeling stuck in your life or relationships? Some forms of death and loss can be traumatic and result in difficulty coping with everyday life. Anxiety and depression can complicate the grief experience. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed. If you would like to alleviate your struggles then I can help facilitate movement and help you feel grounded again in your life and relationships.
As a grief specialist my expertise is in Suicide, Homicide and Sudden Death experiences. I also have much experience in Pet Loss, Chronic Illness, Coping after a Divorce, Anticipatory Grief and other types of loss.
Death is a universal event but grief is a unique experience for every individual. Because grief is unique, I will work with you by providing a safe and comfortable environment and offer a variety of compassionate and evidence-based strategies tailored to meet your specific needs.
