My name is Thera Storm (the "h" is silent!) I am a licensed clinical social worker in San Diego, CA. Most of my experience as a counselor and therapist is working with active duty military (Marines and Sailors) and their families. I have worked with clients who felt stuck, depressed and anxious during times of transition, grief, loss, retirement, pet loss, job and career changes and deployments. I applied grief therapy concepts, but got the sense that people still felt stuck. I began research to see what else was out there to help people move to a place of recovery and peace. I found the GRM and not only recognized the method as something that could actually work - but I applied it to my own losses and experienced recovery, completion and peace myself! I am so excited to bring this method as an 8 week recovery group and one-on-one sessions to San Diego County. Please contact me to get more information on our locations and time of our next group! I look forward to meeting you.
The program really helped me to identify the myths of grief that have kept me from fully processing and healing from traumatic events. The homework steps stimulated me to take quality time and think critically about my grief response. Although I still miss the person I lost, I feel I have resolved any feelings of guilt, shame, or that things could have been better, different, or more.1-on-1 Support11/30/2020
Not only was I able to deal with the grief I had unresolved, it also helped change my outlook towards others' personal issues, hidden or in plain sight. Thera did a phenomenal job, and I with the best for her and her future clients, of which she deserves many more.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in San Diego, CA11/01/2020
The program has really helped me. I can't imagine where I'd be right now if I hadn't stumbled across it. It's hard to describe but I can now just experience the sadness of not having my brother here anymore. I can think about a fun memory and not have it spiral into extreme pain & anger. I am no longer limited to reliving the year of cancer and family drama that preceded my, far-too-young-to-die, brother's death. Completing emotions really does work. Thank you.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in San Diego, CA08/21/2020
This is the first time I'm ready to stop "scrubbing" and "cleaning" my tank, and I'm ready to fill it. The Grief Recovery Method led me to completion. Therapy and EMDR were all helpful tools in my journey, but GRM gave me the freedom to truly move forward. I feel the sense of completion in my life which allows me to life fully in the present rather than continuing to analyze my past.1-on-1 Online SupportParticipant in San Diego, CA08/09/2020
The program helped me view my husband's death in a new light. At the end, I felt as thought a weight had been lifted. Obviously, it did not resolve all manner of grief at his loss, but has made me view it differently.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Alexandria, VA05/21/2020
The scaffolding, awareness, depth, progression, testimonies and examples in the book, testimonies and examples from the facilitator, and warm empathy and compassion (and encouragement) from the facilitator were the strongest contributors. Ultimately achieving "completion" was huge.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Pacific Beach/San Diego, CA03/19/2020
