My name is Katie Grimm. I am an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist empowering grievers to heal unfinished business and mend their broken hearts that may be weighing them down. I am located in Charlotte, North Carolina and offer the following: 1 to 1 Grief Support, Grief Support Groups, Helping Children with Loss and Pet Loss Support Groups.
I originally read The Grief Recovery Method book over 25 years ago when my father passed away at the age of 56. I was thirty at the time and didn’t have the skills to recover from such a huge loss. I worked through the book with a good friend who had recently lost her mother. The experience was profoundly healing for both of us and allowed us to complete the relationship so that we could move on in a lighter, more joyful way.
In the years that followed, I had several losses including my grandmothers and grandfather and successfully used the tools I learned from the book to recover from those losses. Then from 2016-2020, I experienced many significant losses including my favorite aunt, a good friend to cancer, and then my mother. I also experienced breast cancer and simultaneously changes in my marriage and parenting like becoming more of an empty nester. Although, I have continued to use the skills I learned in the grief recovery method book, it was time to take a deeper dive into grief recovery to process the significant changes and losses I have experienced in the last few years.
The grief recovery method does not disappoint, it continues to help me move past grief, complete the emotional relationship I had with the person and open space within me for more joy and happiness.
I knew that the training for the grief recovery method would be an amazing enhancement to my life coaching practice. I am delighted to offer this recovery process to you. It’s an action oriented process that helps you heal any unfinished business and mend the heartbreak that may be weighing you down. Grief is an emotion that can be healed by being felt, processed, and witnessed; it is not something the brain can fix by thinking alone.
I welcome you to work one-on-one with me or to join one of my groups. Healing the broken heart can be transformational. Please reach out for a free consultation over the phone to get started.
I am very familiar with loss and grief due to my profession. I chose this program because it is one of action. I appreciated the activities and tools used to help me process my personal grief. I also appreciated that the materials delineate dementia as it's own separate loss, which was my personal experience. I was comfortable discussing my knowledge of and experience with processing grief with my facilitator Katie while also feeling supported in my own journey. I am grateful and intend to sign up for her next alumni group to process additional losses.One-on-One Online SupportParticipant in Herndon, VA12/21/2022
The Grief Recovery Method was very impactful! I found the process easy to follow and I was surprised at how much the tools really helped me! I was working on a relationship with my living sister and I wasn't sure how well the method would work. It was awesome!One-on-One Online Support08/25/2022
The Grief Recovery Method has changed my life! I feel like a totally different person after my experience. It's the first time in 32 years I was able to be completely honest with myself. I was able to come face to face with many losses in my life. Thanks to this program I have completed my biggest loss in my life to date. It also gave me the opportunity to think about, discuss and come to terms with other losses in my life. I am now eager to get to my "to do" list of my other incomplete losses. I now have the tools and a trusted Facilitator to guide me. Thank you for this amazing experience and the completeness it has given me.Support Groups08/11/2022
I came to the class a little skeptical about how it could help me. I was pleasantly surprised by how transformative it was for me. The process allowed me to let go of some pain and suffering I had be carrying for a long time. I am grateful to Katie, my class and the grief recovery method. Thank you!Support Groups08/11/2022
Participating in this program has made such an impact. It’s allowed me to process more completely my feelings. I didn’t fully realize how unresolved things were until I trusted the process and worked through the exercises. The real difference however came in sharing the work with such a capable and kind facilitator. Katie was instrumental in how I manage my grief and I will be forever grateful.Support Groups05/15/2022
The Grief Recovery Method helped me to recognize loss and subsequent grief I didn't even know I had! Once I understood what was making me "stuck", I was able to use the GRM tools I learned to systematically work through my losses so that I could move on.One-on-One Online Support01/27/2022
