There is Life Beyond Loss!

Experiences of loss begin early in life. By the time we move out on our own we’ve already gone through a number changes such as starting school, changing schools, parents divorcing or the death of a close family member or moving to another city or community just to name a few of the possibilities.

Every change entails loss and every loss brings up grief.

Grief is defined as the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior. Grief is no stranger to any of us, yet for some reason dealing effectively with grief is.

There are many misconceptions about grief that are not helpful in dealing with these conflicting feelings, no matter how well intentioned they may be.

I’ve certainly had a rocky relationship with grief all my life and I suffered greatly because of it. I am so grateful for the things I have learned that have helped me not only to identify my feelings but do something about completing on them.

As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® who has had to deal with many losses in my life and trained by John James, founder of The Grief Recovery Institute®, it is my privilege and my passion to help you move beyond the losses you have experienced as well.

Every loss and every griever is unique. whether the losses are due to:

  • death,
  • divorce,
  • loss of career,
  • loss of a beloved pet
  • loss of health,
  • loss of faith,
  • a move or any other type of loss

The grief you feel is just as significant as that of anyone else and the Grief Recovery Method® will work for you if you are willing to do the work.
