GRIEF AND LOSS

Moving forward through Grief Day-by-Day

Did you know that, according to the Holmes-Rahe Stress Scale, there are 43 life events that are most liable to create feelings of grief, and in turn cause illness and other health-related problems? And, did you know that unresolved grief can present as depression and anxiety? 

 

In addition to being certified as a Certified Professional Life Coach, I am also certified as a  Grief Recovery Method Specialist and an IFC Certified Graduate of the Grief to Gratitude Program. 

 

Whether you want specialized grief coaching for a specific loss or if the feelings of grief evolve in a personal coaching session, I have the tools and resources to help you move forward from these normal feelings of grief.

 

  • "I just don't see a way out of this empty feeling."

  • "They were my everything. I lost a part of me."

  • "I miss my mom."

  • "How will I manage the bills, upkeep the house, pay taxes. 

  • "That wasn't my role."

  • "I am having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning."

  • "My purpose and light are gone." 

  • It's been five years since he died and I am still so very lost"

 

 If grieving the loss of a loved one, together we will:

  • Accept the fragility of life and the reality of death.  Take time to talk and grieve. Be able to honor the life and continue the legacy of your loved one.

  • Begin blending old routines, habits, and traditions with newer ones to create a renewed awareness of self.

  • Accept the continuance of your own life and take action to embrace your future.

  • Move forward beyond the grief and create and enjoy a fulfilled life of love and gratitude.

 

If feelings of grief have surfaced for another reason, together we will:

  • Identify and accept the feelings of grief. Knowledge is power.

  • Realize that you do not need a fix or cure, as grief is a normal reaction to any loss

  • Use a loss graph to become aware of your feelings

  • Accept the continuance of your own life and take action to embrace your future.

  • Decide to move forward and say yes to all that is waiting for you.

I work with individuals and groups in my office, on the phone, or via web based conferencing.

Let's get started! I look forward to hearing from you.
