Why do I do what I do?

Grieving is one of the hardest things we can do as humans. We love deeply, and we grieve deeply. I know the pain of loss in various forms on both a professional and personal level. There have been many times when I've had to rebuild my life after losing something or someone. This profound compassion for others experiencing similar pain drives me. While I cannot fix grief, I can walk alongside you, sharing my skills, knowledge, and experience to ease your journey and help you find a way through it.

Everyone experiencing grief deserves the opportunity to tell their stories and be heard. Often, in the initial stages of grieving, support is abundant. However, as time passes, the world moves on, and the support from those around you may wane. Yet, your pain remains significant and important. That's why I do what I do. Grief cannot be neatly wrapped up in a timeline that's convenient for the world around us. It takes as long as it takes, and you deserve the support you need throughout that time. I am here to provide that support, to hold space for your grief, and to help you honour it while embracing life.

I am passionate about this work because I believe in the power of human connection and the importance of support during times of profound loss. I understand the hopelessness and meaninglessness that grief can bring, and I know ways to work through those feelings. I have spent a lot of time deep in grief, merely going through the motions, feeling as though I've lost so much time to pain. The grieving process is important, and not all that time is wasted. However, there came a point when I needed to make a change but didn't know how to move forward. This experience drives my desire to help people when they reach that pivotal moment — they know they need to make a change, they know they need help, but they don't know how or what to do next.

I want people to thrive and live a life they have defined as meaningful and important. I can help you learn how to cope, manage, and respond to loss. Grieving is an essential life process that needs the right attention. Avoidance causes suffering. I aim to support people in embracing their grief and healing from it. I believe that sharing grief is a powerful way to heal.

There is no greater gift or contribution I can give than to witness grief and create a safe space for it.
