Mts, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist
Licensed Funeral Director
I have seen many children suffer trauma, of sometimes being the one to find a parent’s body who has died by suicide. These and many other children are afraid and have deep sadness in their young eyes. I cannot look away. It is, and has been my purpose, to help them. They often feel alone and frightened. In my 31 years as a Funeral Director, 14 years as a Registered Therapist, and 3 years as the Clinical Director for a children’s bereavement camp, I have witnessed the impact of grief and loss on children.
I am ‘one’ in my therapy office; I was part of ‘several’ at Camp; and I stand with ‘many’ in our communities. I know that together, we can help these children.
The Children’s Grief Foundation of Canada relies on the support of our partners and our network of bereavement professionals. To learn more, please get in touch with us.
