Ms. Kenedy Dowler, Registered Psychologist

Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®

~ Accepting New Clients (Virtual Only) ~

Despite loss being one of very few experiences we are guaranteed to have, we are taught so little of how to deal with it. However, this need not sentence us to a life of suffering. Through the experience of being heard and equipped with the right education and tools, it is possible to recover from the pain, isolation, and loneliness characteristic of grief. As a Registered Psychologist and Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, I am honored by the opportunity to bear witness to individuals at their rawest and most vulnerable, to then help them move through discomfort and pain toward healing. I use evidence-based practices and a gentle, warm, collaborative approach to do just that. I have a decade of therapeutic experience during which I have supported individuals who have experienced loss through death, divorce and break-up, pet loss, infidelity, intimate partner abuse, age and/or injury out of sport, unplanned career change, caregiver burnout, and life transitions such as moving, graduation, and retirement. I use my own loss history to inform the work that I do; although we can never truly know the experience of another, I believe it allows me to sit with others from a place of understanding.

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. You always have the choice.” ~ Dalai Lama
