Welcome to my profile. I am deeply grateful to offer this incredible method for Grief Revovery both as a group facilitator and one on one in the Boston and Metrowest region of Massachusetts. I am no stranger to grief. I started a non profit www.benspeaks.org after losing my middle child Ben to suicide at eighteen years old in 2009. After Ben, I lost my marriage of 30 years, my two sisters and my mom. This method has given me the best tools and actions to take to unpack these losses in a way that nothing else has. I look forward to serving you. Additionally, I am an Empowerment coach supporting my clients to move beyond beliefs that block them from living their best lives and helping them structure through goals and actions toward their dreams. I am a certified Hypnotherapist and Reiki Master.

My 24 year old daughter died 3 months ago unexpectedly. A childhood friend recommended Judy. I wasn’t interested in group therapy or traditional therapy. Judy was beyond excellent in navigating me through my journey of grief. Her wisdom, empathy, love, and humor made this extraordinary loss more manageable. I’ll forever be grateful for her help during the most difficult experience of my life.1-on-1 Support05/05/2021
I feel like I left the program learning a great deal about grief and loss in the context of our society and my own personal grief and loss. I have a different perspective about the way other people have reacted to my grief, as well as some of the ways I have judged myself and coped in not so healthy ways. I enjoyed reading the chapters along with meeting once a week with Judy to talk about how they relate to my grief in my life. Diving deeper into the losses I have experienced in my life really opened my eyes to how much loss I have experienced. I feel like I learned so much about myself and have a clear understanding of all the struggles I have gone through. In addition to all of these things, I think the biggest take away from this program was reviewing my relationship's with my two parents who passed when I was a teenager and the completion work I did with them. Laying out our relationship graphs painted a really clear picture of where all my pain and sadness was stemming from. Being able to express all of the unresolved feelings, apologies, forgiveness, and emotional statements that never got to be said felt like the closure I never had. I don't think I ever truly worked through my grief after these two losses and I think this is going to impact my life in so many ways. I am extremely grateful for Judy and this program. Going into the therapy field, myself, I am even considering training to become a GRM therapist at some point. Thank you!!!1-on-1 Support04/12/2021
