Hi there. My name is Gwen Russo-Uss and I am a Trainer for the Grief Recovery Institute and an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist located in Long Island, New York. I service people in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Nassau and Suffolk County. As a result of completing the Advanced Online Grief Recovery program, I am now able to help people from all over the world via online services. Taking people through the GRM has afforded me with a powerful and transformative set of tools that I can offer people dealing with any one of the 40+ losses that lead to grief. Grief Recovery recently hit home for me personally with the sudden and tragic death of my brother, Rick in February of 2018. I now have first hand experience of how The Grief Recovery Method works in letting go of the pain around my brother's death. Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for having Grief Recovery in my life. It has also personally helped my immediate family heal as both my mother and sister-in-law have gone through Grief Recovery.
While I have worked with many people of varying losses, there is a special place in my heart for those dealing with loss as a result of addiction as well as pet loss. Pain in life is inevitable, suffering is optional. Help is available.

The GRM was an answer to what feels like a lifetime of grief, suffering, and guilt. I didn't realize how much I lived my life from this grief and after going through the GRM I can truly say I know experience freedom from the suffering of my losses. I am now beginning to enjoy the next phases in my relationships with those who have died and those who are still alive, that I never thought were possible. Thank you Gwen and Ed for so lovingly and empathetically leading me through the GRM so that I can now share this freedom with others. If you are wondering if the GRM is for you, please know the GRM is for everyone and don't waste another day suffering in your grief, I wish I hadn't waited this long, especially now knowing how transformational the GRM is.04/23/2020
The Grief Recovery Specialist Certification Training was an Amazing experience. It helped me to feel supported in my healing process and it taught me how to help other people heal. I highly recommend this training to anyone that wants to gain valuable knowledge on grief and healing that will truly make a difference in the world! Michele Greer04/22/2020
The Grief Recovery Method has been one of the most impactful concepts about grief, loss and change I have ever encountered. It has been eye-opening and life changing. I was not sure how a series of small actions over the course of a few weeks would be able to end years of pain, following the tragic and unexpected death of a parent, but they did. Absolutely amazing!04/21/2020
I just loved the process, the trainers were extremely thorough and it has made a deep impact in my life.04/21/2020
The GRM is much more than a basic feelings talk that I had anticipated! Having read the book before going into class, I felt I had a good understanding of what we would be talking. Using feeling words and identifying them has not been a foreign concept to me and yet I experienced a tremendous breakthrough: I sat, stating my emotions about horrible losses (not solely deaths) that have shaped my life in front of another without judgement or advice offered immediately following. It was the first time, I felt heard and unashamed. Taking GRM's teachings have outlined a new approach and understanding for my life and it is exciting in ways only my heart can articulate. Every time I go to explain it, words seem to fall short, and I love to talk! Thank you, Gwyn and Ed, for creating a safe and honest place for sharing, learning, and realigning with what my heart has been "telling" me, a need to be heard and emotionally complete the pain of years of the unreasonable concept that I, a griever, need to be "fixed".04/21/2020
I had been holding onto a lot of grief surrounding the death of my Father for the past 15 years. Gwen and the Grief Recovery Workshop has allowed me to acknowledge my feelings around my relationship with my Father, accept them, grieve them, and let them go. It was a very liberating experience and I am beyond grateful to have been a part of Gwen's workshop and for the opportunity to look at something that I have been ignoring for many years. I look forward to continuing this work on many areas of my life where grief is present.2 1/2 Day Personal WorkshopsParticipant in Holtsville, NY02/23/2020
