our caregiving  journey 



Whether you are caring for someone else or nestled in the throws of grief, this is a transformational season in your life. 


When we are struggling with the loss of a loved one or providing care for them, everything we believe to be true, all of our long-held beliefs can begin to fade into the background of our lives. We may start to question all of it.  You may have discovered me while searching for information online. You may not even know what you are searching for. Please know you are NOT alone. Grief is a process, a life-altering shift. 


Everyone has a unique path when it relates to grief, no matter what age, or what kind of relationship you had with your loss or circumstance. We all experience it in our own way.

I believe we are all born with a light within each one of us. I was blessed to have a mother who radiated this daily even through her most challenging moments before she left this earth. Even when we experience our darkest seasons of loss and grief our light still exists. It may be dimmed, it may be dulled or may be a speckle, but if you are here- if you exist, then you have that light. It may take time. There is no timeline to feel a glimmer of light.

Exhale, and know that you still matter. Your path is still wide open.

Isn't it about time that you offered the same amount of care and attention to yourself that you show to others?


This new normal doesn't feel so normal.

Everything now feels like life after, and everything else you knew was before your loved one was here on this earth.  You do want to feel better. But, you have an ache and longing that won’t go away. I am committed to supporting my clients in re-establishing a connection with who they are during the grieving process. Speaking to someone may very well be the last thing you want to do.

It is a courageous step to make the call to unload all of your pain, and tears. 

This is your grief. 


📌Those who are grieving and experiencing loss

📌Caregivers experiencing grief during this difficult period while caring for their

loved one, I will support you through this nuanced time in your life. You wouldn't want to be anywhere else, but long for a safe place to put your feelings 

📌Caregivers who now are grieving for the loss of their loved one

  • Grief is a normal, natural response to loss

  • You are not "crazy," grief is not something we try to overcome or try "recover" from or "fix"

  • You want to find an outlet that is not your friends or family 

  • You have never felt these kinds of emotions before, you are numb from the pain, or conversely, you are feeling too much and you can't process all the events that have led up to now

  • You keep going over the same events, over and over again

Why is everyone different in their responses to grief?

The grief process is an adaptive response, not a straight line. Our lives are all different. Our circumstances are all unique. It is absolutely ok and very normal to feel different from other people whom we know are grieving or who have experienced grief in their past. This is your own personal experience. 


What is the goal of grief counselling? 

The goal of grief counselling is intended to help you process your feelings in a healthy way. To facilitate the unravelling of healthy aspects that are unique to each person, and learn to cope with all of the nuanced and erratic emotions you may be experiencing in a way that feels right for you. Counselling will not make you forget your loved one, and will not help avoid your grief.  

This is a new timeline for you, a new path, and you want to know who you are now. 

"The more connected we are to our own light, the more connected we are to our loved ones. However long it takes, it takes."

Although I am located in Montreal, Canada, we will meet online. During our one-on-one sessions, we will meet within the ease and discretion of your own home, where you feel most at peace.

 This is a private, and valuable time which is reserved solely for you.

Everything is significantly different now. After suffering a heartbreaking loss, you are trying to navigate your way through one of the most challenging periods of your life.


Know that you are important. You matter. I am here to walk alongside you and provide support as you move through this transitional period in your life, so you can say what you need to say and feel how you need to feel. This is your grief, your life and your loss.

Caregiver Coaching

You are tired of feeling alone and are ready to feel seen and heard.  You may feel as though no one understands what you are going through and what you have been through. Now, you are ready to work through this and face forward in your life, find balance and renew your self-worth and confidence. Even though you may not feel this way right now, the road is wide open, and you possess the ability to choose what the next season of your life will look like. 


Life Coaching

We are co-creating. 

This is a time in your life when you are facing a new season. 

You may not fully know what direction you are facing, or what your next journey will look like. Now you want more from your life, and you know that the only way to unravel what has been behind you is also to find out what possibilities lie ahead. Confidence and self-love begin with you.
