My grief journey began in 2007 when I lost my father to cancer, the day after my twenty-fourth birthday. His parting words were, "time is non-linear, and I'll always be with you." For many years, I struggled to find my way through my grief maze. I found some healthy outlets for my grief including starting a memorial scholarship fund in my father's name (I've raised over $100,000!) and running the NYC Marathon. Despite my best efforts and amazing family and friends, I still felt incredibly lonely and isolated. During this time, I promised myself that when I found ways to heal my heart, I'd do everything in my power to help other broken-hearted people heal and learn to live again in their new normal.
On the eve of my father's ten-year anniversary, I found the Grief Recovery Method ® which gave me the tools that I had been searching for to really begin my recovery and heal my broken heart. It also helped me fulfill my promise to myself of being able to help others overcome loss and grief by becoming an Advanced Certified Grief Recovery Specialist ® and founding my grief recovery practice, The Non-Linear Journey.
Grief is a non-linear journey that is unique for every single person. Grief Recovery does not mean that you'll ever forget your loved one, or never feel sad. It means that you'll learn the tools to feel better and heal your broken heart.

After the tragic passing of my son, I found myself getting no where finding a therapist I could work with to help me heal the pain cause by my son's death. I reached out to a friend who told me he knew of a couple of resources and this was one of them. After reviewing both resources I knew this program better suited me, I was looking to work with someone 1.1 I wasn't ready for groups support yet. So I reached out and Ilana got back to me, I knew from our first meeting that this program was right for me and that she would be someone I wanted to work with. I wasn't wrong, Ilana's expertise and great knowledge of this program helped me navigate through the pain of losing my son too son. Now I am not saying that I don't miss him and that it doesn't hurt still but now I have the tools needed to help me during my everlasting grief journey. I am forever grate to Ilana and this program.
