So - here's a little bit about me.  I'm Lois Hall and I live in Westerville, Ohio.  Professionally, I've enjoyed a long and exciting career in Public Health at the Ohio Department of Health and then with the Ohio Public Health Association.  It was actually my work in Public Health that lead me to the Grief Recovery Method.

I was the first person to do AIDS epidemiology in Ohio back in 1981 when the disease was first recognized.  The grief was immense!  I met John James and invited him to come to Ohio to share his work with the people working in the AIDS field.  I was hooked!!!  Everything he said made such sense.  I was trained/certified by John in 1998 and have been providing the GRM in my community since then.  In addition to the loss I was feeling at work, my dad died of metastatic colon cancer in 1990 and my mom died of a combination of cancer and diabetes in 1991.  It was a pretty overwhelming time....  

In 2001 I was invited to become a trainer for the Grief Recovery Institute and I have been working even more to spread the word about the Grief Recovery Method.  I strongly believe that unresolved grief is a major - largely unaddressed - Public Health issue, and, as such, I'm now working to help bridge my two loves - Public Health and Grief Recovery - with the hope that together we can "make a difference, one life at a time."   In addition to my work with HIV/AIDS, I also have a passion for helping those impacted by the drug epidemic, those who are or have been incarcerated... and also clergy.  Sounds odd to have them in that list of "passions" but I have found that often our clergy families have lives just like the rest of us - which often includes the same kinds of losses or circumstances... they just have a harder time of finding support or even being able to talk about their losses.  

I typically provide both group and one-on-one Grief Recovery programs, as well as the four-session program, Helping Children with Loss, using the book "When Children Grieve," also written by John W. James and Russell Friedman.  I can also provide online Grief Recovery sessions, one-on-one,  and the two-day Personal Workshop format, as an Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist.
