As a Certified Grief Educator, Spiritual Director and End of Life Doula Candidate (in training), I step into the messy places helping navigate grief, loss, doubt and change in whatever form it takes. It is my desire to create space and be present, bearing witness to the beauty, growth, pain, disappointments and challenges in your life, holding hope until you are again able to carry it for yourself.
While most of my clients follow a faith tradition, it is not a requirement or expectation. It is my honour and privilege to work with individuals, families, small groups, church leadership, congregations and faith organizations.
Some areas of focus include:
Navigating that space where faith and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) intersect
Church leaders (lay and ordained) who are navigating loss of faith, wounding from their place of employment or relationships therein and navigating the complexities of doubt in a world demanding certainty
Parents of children with special needs from birth or with later diagnosis
Meetings are in-person locally and virtually throughout Canada and internationally
Grief.com does not pre-screen clients or grief support providers. Each person is encouraged to do their own information gathering on therapists and/or grief educators to make sure they are a good fit. Each grief support provider must also screen each potential client to make sure they will also be a good fit. A Certified Grief Educator means that they have completed the Grief Educator program, but does not verify their competence. Grief.com in no way is responsible for the actions of clients or providers.
