As a result, many individuals experience symptoms such as anxiety, fear, modified view of the self or the world, and hypervigilance amongst other symptoms. Therapy can help you rebuild your resilience, learn more effective coping skills, regain or build a sense of self and trust in self and others, and accompany you through the process of grief and healing.

Grief is a process that can lead one to feel a mixed bag of emotions ranging from anger to numbness, to guilt, to sadness, and to loneliness. It is a myth that grief follows a linear logical sequence of emotions or stages. It is more frequent for one to wax and wane between stages or skip a stage altogether. Some individuals move through grief quickly while others do not because grief is dependent on the individual and the type of loss experienced. Therapy can help you explore and discover what you need, and what you would like and feel is important to you moving forward. Let me accompany you on your journey and hold a space for you where you can express yourself without judgment and feel heard and valued.
