Although my main focus, experience, and training is in helping to support children, I also have extensive experience in helping to support adults with grief and loss.

My experience has been co-facilitating bereavement groups for adults, and providing one-to-one counselling support.

I have also had the opportunity to provide workshops and presentations to adults, in communities I have worked, on how to help support children dealing with grief and loss and noticed something interesting.

My favourite part of putting on workshops and presentations is making it as experiential as possible so people can hopefully, more easily, remember what they learned on how to help support children with grief and loss. All participants get to try art and play activities and experience what it might be like for the children they are helping support.

The feedback I have received from adult workshop participants was that is was surprisingly helpful to process their own thoughts and feelings about death and dying through the playful art they created often in memory of their loved ones.

With these experiences, I believe that it can be helpful for people of any age to process thoughts and feelings through a variety of ways.

Grief changes shape, but it never ends.”

Keanu Reeves

Feelings of grief do not go away with time. They can change. They can shift. It is about how you would like to process your thoughts and feelings about your grief and loss that can create hopefully helpful shifts in your life.

My hope is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to process your thoughts and feelings in whichever way feels most helpful for you whether that would be making art, creating stories, writing music, or talking.

“Grief is just love with no place to go.”

– Jamie Anderson

I would like to help you find places for your grief to go. My hope is to help you discover how you would like to grieve in a way feels best for you.

If you are an adult who would like to take part in counselling support focused on grief and loss and you are interested in talking, making art, and/or other expressive ways to process your thoughts and feelings then please reach out to connect.
