Bereavement, grief counselling, children and grief. I can answer questions such as, "How do I tell my child that her grandpa died?" or "How do I explain death to my kids?" or "How can I help my child work through her grief since her mom/dad died?" And so on. In the area of adult grief, I can answer questions such as, "Is my grief normal? Do I need professional help? How can I help myself? How do I find a professional grief counsellor?" I will not do therapy on line, but could direct people to an ADEC (Assoc. for Death Education and Counselling) certified counsellor in their area of the world. I have an Honours B.S.W. from the University of Western Ontario, a Certificate in Thanatology and Palliative Care from the University of Western Ontario. I have had a private practice called A Gentle Place for Grieving Children since 1994. I have also been working in mental health with grieving adults, teens, and kids since 1994 doing individual and group work as well as public speaking. I teach in a Palliative Care program at the community college level, and have extensive experience in teaching community groups about death and dying.
