Grief Relief Sessions
~for grieving mothers~
Work through the pain of child loss with a grief guide who is also a bereaved mom.
Talking to someone else who knows your pain can make all the difference.
Goodness knows grief is HARD work.
Whether you have been dealing with grief for years or months it can seem overwhelming and very, very lonely. After I lost my daughter in 2015 reaching out to other bereaved moms is what helped me most.
After Katie died, I sought professional help, but something was missing. It was the personal knowing and experience of other moms that helped me most. I felt a lot of anger and disconnect when professionals would refer to the outdated theories of death, dying, and grief.
Does this sound familiar?
Based on my own experiences, I have created
created an option for moms who need support, encouragement, and heartfelt advice to help them with their grief.
I can't pretend that I am an expert in all loss, I do know child loss and work with moms
who are feeling lost and confused after their child has died.
Here's what I do know...
Not everyone is the same,
so I like to customize sessions to your particular needs and areas of struggle. Your grief experience is as unique as your
While I am well versed on the theories of grief
I do not integrate them into my practice.
I know first hand that grief is unpredictable and does not follow a time line or pattern. We start where you are and find the tools that will help you cope with your loss.
I practice a client-centred approach which means that we focus on your needs, not what others may expect of you.
I felt an immediate connection with Lisa during our first telephone conversation; she is kind, caring and genuinely concerned about my wellbeing. She is humble, honest and sensitive, especially to the fact that we all grieve differently. Lisa has given me some of her experiences and shared her way of coping with different feelings; and has helped me articulate my emotions and give them the space and recognition that help me to cope.

Most importantly, I will encourage you to step forward WITH you child in your heart on every step of your journey.
I do not subscribe to the notion of 'moving on' and 'forgetting'. That is simply not possible.
The Grief Relief Sessions will help you:
Feel hopeful and encouraged that living is possible again
Determine the strategies that work best for you
Help you move forward WITH your child
Cope with your heartache
Overcome self-limiting beliefs about healing after child loss
Find peace and comfort
How it works:
This is more than 'talk therapy'.
We will work through the barriers (real or perceived) that may be holding you back from healing. Often times we don't even realize that we have subconscious thoughts that are holding us back. You will be given activities to work through in between our sessions and you will learn coping strategies to help you when you feel stuck.
Together we find ways to help you feel more in control and less overwhelmed with grief.
Working one on one with Lisa has given me some comfort in knowing that I am not alone. She helps you understand that you will survive and that you can learn to live again too.
With the help of these sessions, I made the decision to live my life in a way that would make my son proud, honours him, and celebrates the awesome life he lived. Healing is now part of my daily life. Thank you Lisa!
