After serving over 20 years as a Licensed Professional Counselor with degrees in Psychology and Counseling, Bobbie realized how loss was a common thread in the lives of her clients. With a desire to help people struggling through the pain of their loss, Bobbie discovered The Grief Recovery Institute®, became a Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist® and has now served as a national trainer of trainers for The Grief Recovery Institute® for over 9 years.
In 2013 Bobbie and her husband, Bob who is also a Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist® formed The Grief & Wellness Group, Inc. in Tucson, AZ to help people understand that it is possible to complete unresolved grief, move on with their life, and renew their joy. Both individual and grief recovery support groups are offered, in addition we offer When Children Grieve, which is a program designed for parents and those who wish to help children through their grief.
Unresolved grief is related to wishing things would have been better, different, or more and includes all your unfulfilled hopes dreams and expectations. It doesn't matter if the person is deceased or alive, our The Grief Recovery Method Specialists® are committed to helping you walk through the process - no matter how tough it gets.
The Grief Recovery Method® is a unique process that takes the individual through a series of action steps that enables you to identify the incomplete relationships that have caused pain and prevented you from moving forward and enjoying a more fulfilled and happy life.
Some of the comments our clients have expressed numerous times is how "free" they feel, as though "a huge weight has been lifted." Others have noted that what use to be "a trigger" to painful memories no longer has the emotional power over them that it use to have. Still others who have gone through the process on a loved one who has died have expressed that it gave them the opportunity to communicate some of the important emotional statements that for some reason they never expressed and brought many of the good memories they had forgotten to the forefront of their minds enabling them to enjoy the blessings of having that person in their life more than ever.
Bobbie strongly believes, "Every person can benefit from going through this process! Not only will it help you in your personal relationships, it will enable you to be more effective as you seek to help others struggling with a loss of any kind."
