Peer-to-peer support for people in grief of all ages.
I offer a kind, compassionate, respectful place for you to unwrap the layers of emotion that surround any loss, at any age or stage of life.
With expertise in relationship-based therapeutic work with children and their caregivers, I provide a safe and caring place to sit and be present as you navigate your way through the rocky terrain of grief. I am particularly interested in working with individuals, families and/or groups who have experienced a loss by suicide or the loss of a sibling or parent. My training is in working with children and families however, grief strips us to our core, and we all revisit the children we once were as we work through our losses. Relationships are the fabric of our multi-layered lives, and they shape the way that we love and process loss, regardless of how long ago that loss was experienced. My own lived-experience with grief has taught me that the power of love and deep connection can reshape the loneliness of loss into something transformative and affirming.
Grieving is too profound to do alone: with understanding and compassion I can walk beside you down the road towards mending your broken heart.
