I did not come grieving, instead, my employer required the training. I was plesantly surprised that so much of the book and trainings gave me so much insight into parenting. Also, I was able to write a letter to my grandma, and that has helped heal me. I truly loved the program!

This program overall helped me understand that there are different types of losses besides death. Children struggle with losses that majority of the time we don't see as a loss.

The program was eye-opening, helping me to see how I learned to hide my feelings, which I passed on to my children. Marla helped me to see the accumulative grief in my own life that I plan to work on so that I can help my children and grandchildren and thus stop this cycle.

Outstanding! Marla was the best! She pulled some information out of me that I did not know it was there.

It is a discovery method and I truly did discover things about myself and my daughters death that has helped me to bring closure.

During my 30+ years of personal growth work, I have addressed many aspects of the various losses in my life. However, the format of the Grief Recovery Program allowed me to look at the overall picture in a manner I hadn't done previously, as well as enabling me to focus on specific traumas and losses in a more comprehensive way. In my experience, it is rare to have the opportunity to be fully heard while sharing painful experiences. Having Marla be "a heart with ears" was a great gift. The program resulted in a greater sense of completion with my father and to paint a more comprehensive picture of the whole relationship vs. thinking of it in parts. My father died more than 20 years ago and I have done a lot of work on that relationship in the intervening years, yet there was more to do and the Grief Recovery Program gave me the time and space to do it. Marla's personal experience, empathic nature, knowledge of the program and willingness to listen contributed greatly to the comfort and trust I experienced as well as the value gained.

Two years after the death of my son, and only child, I started the Grief Recovery Method with Marla. I thought I was doing okay and people commending me on my strength and ability to still be successful in life. But, I was harboring such immense deep pain in my heart. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to my son and I felt tremendous guilt as a Mom that something I did along the parenting path led my son to his death. Through the work with Marla, I came to realize that saying goodbye wasn’t saying goodbye to my son, but saying goodbye to all those unresolved emotional pieces of the relationship with my son. All the things I never said - the I’m sorries, or I forgive you. Or simply how much I love him and how much it meant to me to be his Mom. At the end of the program, I found a peace in my heart that I hadn’t known since my son passed and, to be honest, don’t think I had ever known. I now have space in my heart to feel even more of the love I have for my son and can actually look at his picture and smile while feeling the love we share. Thank you, Marla, for this new lease on life. This doesn’t mean I will never be sad again or be in pain again. It just means that I am better equipped to ride those waves since the pain in my heart isn’t as deep.

I chose to work with a particular work issue which has been a repeating pattern over the years and caused a great deal of pain and anguish in my life. I chose this because it was unresolved and I didn't want to have to keep dealing with it in the same way moving forward. I feel much more at peace around the issue now and can deal with it from a position of calm understanding if and when it may reoccur. This is a work issue so I cannot control the actions of others but I do have a say in how I interpret what happens and how I respond.
