If you have found me, then I can only imagine your heart is heavy, your pain is real, and you've run out of options, tools and resources to help you with your loss. I invite you to be curious about GRM as an option for healing and restoration of your authentic self. I found GRM because I wanted to find other resources for healing my old wounds around loss that surfaced and were affecting my current relationships. In truth: My heart hurt so badly and  I too, wanted the pain to go away.

As a consumer, I would want to know if my facilitator could relate to me. Therefore, I will share a little about my losses: 

  • I have experienced many deaths in my life from death by suicide, to dying of cancer, old age, and many others.
  • I have sat bedside with friends and families as they've grieved the imminent death of their loved one.
  • I have had a loss of business that resulted in complete loss of everything to include our home, cars, and stability.
  • I have had broken relationships that have broken my heart and I didn't know where to turn or how to heal.
  • I have said "Goodbye" to many beloved pets that were an intimate part of my life and healing for me and my family.
  • I have experienced grief with intangible losses such as loss of safety and trust, in our ever-changing world. 

This is what I gained by completing GRM: I found that my grief was inhibiting me from joy and fulfillment. I learned that how I learned to grieve as a child was limiting me today. I realized that I had a lot of emotional loss that was "unresolved" and that I have a choice of continuing to carry these in an unhealthy, or healthy, way. I was astonished that taking action can free me of the enormous emotional burden that was plaguing my soul. I learned that it is possible to "move beyond grief!"

What I want for you is healing, in a new way:

  • I'm offering to sit present with you, heart to heart (even on Zoom), and walk alongside you in your journey as you walk forward.
  • I want you to know you that you are not alone.
  • I long to help you identify and pracitce a new tool for grief recovery that can be used to heal other losses.
  • I want you to experience hope. 

I have co-facilitated Grief & Bereavement Support Groups for 14 years. In addition, I co-facilitated Survivors of Suicide Support Group for three years for Hope Bereavement Services at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. I am on the SMART Team (School Mobilization Assistance Response Team) for Clark County that responds and supports schools after a crisis (e.g. suicides, shootings, and other trauma). 

At this time, I am offering the following services:

  1. ONLINE SUPPORT: This format, via ZOOM, means I can reach each griever, coastline to coastline. We will meet for 7 sessions, 1-1.5 hours in duration, for 7 weeks in a row. Please feel free to call or email me. 

  2. 1:1 Grief Support in & around Clark County, WA: These individual, in PERSON or online, are 1 to 1.5 hour sessions (to include weekly homework), are 7 weeks in duration, 1x/week. For cost of service, location, questions, and scheduling, please feel free to call or email me. 

  3. 8-Week SMALL GROUP Grief Support/Clark County. Please email or call me with your contact information if you are interested in being added to the waiting list for the next GRM group, as there is a limited capacity, and of course, limitations around meeting in groups during Covid. These groups are an average length of 2 hours, 1x/weekly, with 4-6 participants. This intimate setting provides a unique opportunity to connect with other grievers to remind you that you are not alone. 

  4. 1:1 Pet Loss Grief Support: Please call or email for information.

Most importantly, I encourage you to find a GRM Specialist you connect with to begin mending the past and present "you." I know that it has made a huge difference in my life. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.
