Grief is the death or loss of something or someone. If you have lost something or someone, I am so sorry. What has happened to you, matters. Your grief matters and is worthy of acknowledgement. Often times grief and loss can leave us feeling powerless. Exhausted, devastated, confused and defeated. We can feel robbed, like something was taken from us. The word ‘bereave’ literally translates to the Latin word “to rob”. You were robbed, you are bereaved. 

David Kessler refers to grief as a river. The river will take you where you need to go. Some of us tip toe into the river before our loved ones pass away, others are thrown into the river with an unexpected call that something tragic has happened. If we allow ourselves to float down the river, it will ultimately take us to healing. Our world and society does not like to acknowledge the river of grief and because of that we no longer know how to be in the river.  

 

Taking your power back, or finding your new self of self after a loss is challenging. It’s hard to know where to start. Regardless of how hard or scary this may feel, you are okay. You can do this. 

 

You are okay. 

Grief comes in all shapes and sizes and there is no one size fits all. We all grieve differently, and in some ways you’ll always be grieving but it won’t always look the way it does right now. You can’t change what happened or bring your loved one back, or change the past, but you can take hold of the now and how you move forward. 

 

I’m glad you’re here.

 

Through thoughtful conversation, I’ll give you the tools and the power to feel secure in your next steps. To have the courage and the hope for what lies ahead of you.

Grief can be a lonely experience, you don't have to do it all it alone. The worst moments are behind you, let's take the next step together.
