Over 40+ Life Loses
Can Leave Us Feeling Bereft

When we think of bereavement, we usually think of the death of a loved one. Most people looking for bereavement counseling or a grief coach only feel entitled to do so if someone close to them has died.

However, there are over 40 different personal losses that can leave us feeling devastated, heartbroken, lost, hopeless and ultimately cause he same emotional and physical symptoms of grief.

The Grief Recovery Method is unique in that it is applicable to any and all kinds of losses.

Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialists have been trained to guide grievers without judgement, criticism or analysis. We do not compare losses and we know that every griever is unique.

Not only can the action steps within the Grief Recovery Method be applied to any type of loss, but the steps can also be used again and again with any future losses that occur – once you have participated in a one-one or group Program, you will have all the tools you need to cope with loss later in life.


  • Death of a loved one

  • Death from addiction

  • Divorce, separation, breakup

  • Estrangement of family members

  • Death of a pet

  • Retirement, empty nest

  • Abusive or absent parent

  • Loss of safety due to trauma

  • Loss of health

  • Relocation

  • Miscarriage

  • Infertility

  • Loss of career

  • Loss of identity

How Can I Help You?

Are you facing a loss? Do you feel overwhelmed by major changes in your life?

Can you not stop thinking about something that happened recently or a long while ago?

Let me gently teach you the wonderful tools that the Grief Recovery Method offers.

I trained to become a Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist and Certified Addiction Recovery Coach after my own personal recoveries in 1997 from prescribed controlled substance addictions and multiple life changing losses from divorce, abuse, fatal car
accident, family losses and pet loss.


If you are feeling lost, stuck, heartbroken, fatigued, anxious or just don’t know where to start or who to talk to; please know these feelings are natural and normal. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to gently work through what has kept you stuck and unable to be in the present moment.

Don’t wait for “time to heal’, ‘keep busy’ or ‘be strong’, call or email me for a no obligation, informal talk about how you’re feeling and whether you feel this program is right for you. Rediscover the vitality and fulfillment of your life.

The Grief Recovery Method is the only evidence-based grief program in the world. Research published in peer-reviewed journals has shown that it makes a measurable, positive difference in people’s grief journey.  Recent studies, by Dr. Rachael Nolan from Kent State University, were recently published in two articles in the American Journal of Health Education.  These studies indicate that the eight-meeting directed approach followed in Grief Recovery Method Support Groups is an effective program for grievers, no matter their loss.
