Hello, I can only imagine the grief you feel that led you to this website.
My name is Sarabeth and I am a Trauma-Informed Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC, Canada) and an Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist. I serve Vancouver, Canada and work with online clients from Alaska to Boston, Europe, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
My grief story begins very early in my life. At age 7, I experienced the devastating death of my mother and subsequent life in a family torn by incomplete grief. When I was introduced to GRM many years ago, I thought “Can it be possible to take specific actions that help us in such pain?” I shout a resounding YES! I am forever grateful to the Grief Recovery Method for both helping me personally AND teaching me to walk with empathy beside grievers, teaching and enabling them to become complete with their unprocessed emotions and return to a meaningful life.
My early experiences led me to work especially with people who have lost a supportive parental relationship though death, chronic or life threatening physical illness or mental illness. Recently I have become involved with foster parents as every foster placement begins with the loss of a parent.
I work with adults around the grief their children or the children in their care experience based on the book When Children Grieve. I volunteer at youth camps, introducing teens to the power and possibility of healing their broken hearts.
After graduating from Harding University in the USA with a B.A. in Special Education, I completed courses in pastoral counselling and was privileged to work with families in a multinational faith community for 26 years. I have been a counsellor since 2008 and in November 2016 earned the designation Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling (MPCC) and transitioned into full time teaching, training and counselling. I am a registered counsellor with the Canadian Professional Counsellor’s Association (https://www.cpca-rpc.ca/).
I offer you a warm welcome to contact me for a FREE consultation. But whatever you decide I wish you well on your healing journey.
One of the most impactful aspects of the program for me was redefining my notions about what grief is, when it happens, why it happens, and learning how much of it I experience that I wrote off prior to the class. This would create a lot of guilt, shame, anger, and of course sadness. I feel like this glass has given me some good tools, and helped me to be better able to recognize grief and the forms it takes in my life which has been very helpful.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Anchorage , ALaska01/08/2019
I have had a wonderful experience working with the Grief Recovery Method. My one-on-one facilitator (Sara Felushko) was excellent, and very professional. I have seen positive results in my life after completing the grief recovery method that I am very grateful for. I have already recommended the method to friends, and will continue to do so.1-on-1 Online SupportParticipant in ANCHORAGE, AK06/13/2018
I went into the Grief Recovery Method prepared to work through the recent loss of my brother. Through the process I have realized how many different losses I have experienced in my life and I am slowing making my way through the past and letting go in order to find a fulfilled future. It is a journey I feel I am only just beginning but it is one that has given me hope and helped me to pass that knowledge on to others I know who are also suffering.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Arlington, MA05/16/2018
