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.
I lost both parents within 18 months of each other. The grief of relationships has me trying to figure out why and who I was without them in this earth. Thera had stated she had started her company and the Grief Recovery Method was the process. I said, why not. What I realized about my journey is I have been grieving life for a long time. The death of my parents were a small part of me coming to terms with many things of my life to bring closure. The way I feel now about relationships in my life is so unique and eye opening. I realize grief has ripple effects and they must be taken and addressed one by one. I will use this process for myself for the a very long time.Support GroupsParticipant in Jacksonville , NC01/02/2020
The program has helped me become more aware of my feelings about situations & to be active in the moment at addressing things....especially positive things. For example if someone does something or says something nice , I address it quickly instead of just holding those thoughts to myself . That you can have love for Someone even if that relationship is not what your expectations, hopes & dreams of that relationship could be. You can forgive them for flaws in the relationship & it gives you a peace & understanding that is hard to even describe. The program helped me to understand myself better & discover how much over the years that I have hidden a lot of pain because I did not know how to process my feelings.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Mesa, Az11/21/2019
The Grief Recovery Method has helped mold my way of thinking in a way I can understand myself and those around me. It has helped me in how I approach situations within my work place, at home, with friends and family. Most importantly it has helped me understand and see the root of what and where STERBS started for me and has helped me understand why I react the way I do in situations I have recently gone through. The Grief Recovery Method has helped me complete an area in which I lost trust in parental guidance and I truthfully don't know where I would stand emotionally if I hadn't gone through this 8 week process. I have some more work to do but I also have a great mentor to help me through it. Thank you!Support Groups07/16/2019
The program has helped me face a grief I had been distracting myself from for years. It helped me work through an emotional trauma that was keeping me in a cycle of harmful decisions. I am now able to address and work through anything that might trigger this grief moving forward and I feel more myself. I know I still have a lot of things to figure out and work through, but GRM has been such a healthy release and starting point for moving forward in my life.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in San Diego, Ca03/27/2019
I learned things that not only helped me to work on a specific loss from the past but also strategies to use for future incidents of loss/grief so that the feelings aren’t pushed down for years, which will only make it worse.Support GroupsParticipant in Oceanside, CA11/15/2018
I have learned so much about myself and my reactions!! I am no longer as depressed and isolated as I was. Even my co-workers commented that I look healthier and happier! I can't thank Thera and the other group members enough. Thank you!!!Support GroupsParticipant in Oceanside, CA08/27/2018
