Long before becoming a Grief Recovery Method Specialist Gwenda was drawn to helping people navigate loss. She had experienced 17 deaths by the time I was 21 as well as being the daughter of a Gerontology nurse. Gwenda was a Wish Granter with the Make A Wish Foundation, becoming the first Director of Wish Granting during her time there. Being able to hold space for the family as they created memories that would last a life time.
Her greatest loss came in 2012, a loss of health. She experienced a Post Traumatic Stress diagnosis that completely sidelined her. Since then, she focused on getting healthy, writing two bestsellers , one documenting the effects of trauma and another Wrestling with the Urn to cover aspects of the end of life .
While she is well versed in the death and dying part, grief and embracing all those messy emotions still needed work. While she had tried many different modalities, it wasn’t until she found the Grief Recovery Method, a simple, yet not easy, 4 step process that allows you to get a lay of the land of your own emotional landscape, that she was able to embrace her incomplete relationships and trauma that held her back in ways she didn’t know she was doing.
Now she wants to share that emotional freedom with you.

It made me much more aware of my emotions and how to get in touch with them. I was then able to take responsibility for them and let go of expecting anyone in the past to change them for me.One-on-One Support05/02/2022

I feel that the heaviness and burden of sadness has left me. I had felt like I was just spinning my wheels. I uncovered a lot of underlying things. I have left the program feeling empowered. I am much more thoughtful in general. I listen more. I understand myself more. Thank you!Support Groups03/14/2022
The program helped me separate out relationship events that lead to grief or pain even though there were also good moments in those relationships. Learning to address the feelings that arose and dealing with them to completion and acceptance was very freeing. Thoughts that once haunted me are now not so prevalent that they impact me the way they once would. It has been a very freeing experience.One-on-One Online Support01/28/2022
