Do you feel like your world has been turned upside down after loss?

Do you feel overwhelmed at the enormity of your grief and emotions?

Do you often feel lost, lonely, and like no one else can relate to your pain and experience?

I get it because I have been there too!

Finding the right support can help process the emotions and beliefs correlated with grief. When grief is internalized it can manifest itself in various ways of physical and mental suffering. Left unresolved can cause physical and emotional disorders. I’m here to help you with my Grief Recovery and Bereavement programs.

What is the Grief Recovery?

We will all experience loss throughout our lifetime. Unfortunately, no one is exempt from this. Where there is loss, there is grief. Grief is the normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind. The problem is grief is misunderstood and not discussed much in society. And many of us don’t have first hand experience until it happens to you and are forced to deal with it. In Grief Recovery we focus on the educational side of grief and loss, but mostly it deals with how to heal your broken heart, which requires emotional support instead of intellectual explanations.

Grief Recovery gives you the tools you need in order to heal. There are many types of loss that we can experience throughout our lifetime that create grief such as death, divorce or loss of career.                                                                                                      
These losses can go unattended and unresolved for years partly due to the false belief that many of us have heard… “time will heal our wounds”. The truth is that time in and if itself does nothing to heal. Unresolved grief accumulates over time and significantly impacts our ability to live life fully in the present moment.
Friends and family usually have the best intentions, but sometimes can’t always provide the support you need and there are times when therapists may or may not be helpful either. Someone may only have an intellectual understanding of loss, but it can be different from someone who has an entire career of helping others work through grief and losing a loved one.                                                                                                                                    

6 cliches of grief recovery that are routinely perpetuated in good faith by friends, families and therapists that can often cause more harm than good:

 

  1. Time heals all wounds
  2. Replace the loss
  3. Grieve alone
  4. Be strong
  5. Don’t feel bad
  6. Keep busy
People often say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you how. Grief Recovery is about learning the tools and strategies to recover from loss with supportive and loving guidance.
