Our Story: It’s Personal

Justine was a successful, happily married meeting planner when her seemingly
healthy husband died suddenly of a heart attack at age 44. Realizing she needed
professional support to get through this shocking and excruciating loss, she set
out to find a professional grief counsellor in Toronto.

Her first attempt was not a good match. Her second attempt was equally
challenging.  Thankfully, Justine persevered and found the help she needed
within eight weeks.  She didn’t know how lucky she was. Through a peer-led
loss group, she heard many stories of people struggling to find the support
they needed. 
It is now her goal and her passion to change that.

Believing that early intervention and care had such a positive impact on
her healing journey, Justine is committed to providing others with the
same opportunity. Thankfully, her sister Eileen is a social worker. The two
have teamed up to provide expedient access to helpful resources and skilled,
compassionate bereavement counsellors. Their long-term goal is to open an
accessible, 
affordable bereavement centre that serves as a hub for those needing
a helping hand through their grief journey.
