I provide coaching and support to people at various stages on their grief journey to help them move through the emotions, develop coping strategies and re-engage with life at their own pace. If you have hope, however faint, that things can get better, you are in the right place and I can help.
- Talk about your loss and your emotions with someone who will really listen with warmth, compassion and empathy.
- Although you may feel “messed up,” “crazy,” or that there must be something wrong with you, know that what you are feeling and thinking is all a normal part of grieving.
- Engage with your feelings in healthy ways to gradually ease the intensity.
- Have practical strategies to care for yourself and your family.
- Support your body’s journey through grief so you can stay healthier and rebuild your energy.
- Cope with unexpected triggers and rebound when others say and do things that hurt.
- Take care of unfinished business (regrets, guilt, anger) so you have more energy to heal.
- Continue to be in relationship with your loved one every day.
- When you are ready to begin to create your future: get clear on your goals, whether big or small, and get the next steps to take on your journey.
My passion for walking the path with those who have had a significant loss is fueled by my experiences of losing my 20-year-old sister, my father, and a young friend (all to cancer), a friend to suicide, as well as watching my mother disappear into herself with Alzheimer’s disease. In a society where grief is misunderstood, avoided and judged, I offer an oasis of safety and compassion and hope.
