The program helped me gain greater insight into my relationship with my father. It was healing to talk about the positive and negative memories on my relationship graph. Ronda was very empathic, encouraging and compassionate. She helped me explore and process feelings and life events. This program was very impactful and healing.

This course has provided extraordinary insights of the losses in my life. The exercises pointed to certain times when my lack of coping skills were similar and I could see why. Ronda provided direction and guidance in my discovery of the incident and the incomplete undelivered communication with my father who died 30 years ago. Previous to having this course, I had no idea that this was present. My experience of life is now lighter. Others have noticed a change in how I am being with them. This is amazing.

My mother, sister and best friend all died within 6 months. I had never experienced grief to this level before and felt paralyzed. A colleague was certified in GRM and sent me the link. I went to the website and sent emails to several Specialists in my area. I could see the kindness in Ronda’s eyes on her page and hoped she would be the one to contact me. She did, very quickly (and was the ONLY one who did). I felt like we actually had the 1st session on the phone. I liked how flexible she was, and how she kept the focus on me, my needs at the moment, didn’t pile on a bunch of information, requirements, etc. I didn’t even know what my needs were, until she gently made some suggestions. How I feel now: After meeting with Ronda 8 times and going through the process, I felt much better with each step I took. Ronda was a superb “Coach/Companion” to the GRM book. I know I would NOT have done it without her. I learned to take everything 1 day at a time, be kind to my Heart, found myself feeling “less frozen” and not isolating as much. I learned to set boundaries with people who were well meaning but not helpful for true healing. I was genuinely surprised at how the process actually worked! If I hadn’t trusted in Ronda, I know I would still be lost and just learned to pack down my grief. She was so easy to bond with, not just a “nice person” but a competent one-I felt like I was in good hands. I had never understood what “grief” really was or knew someone who understood it. There was never a moment when I thought: “I wish Ronda was more _____ or less ______”. She was “just right” for me, whatever I needed, her intuition right on point. Ronda helped me get through 2 of the hardest “losses” I have ever had-my mother and an abusive ex. The freedom I felt from carrying those burdens lifted me up so much, I decided to continue, to not only work on more losses, but to also become a Certified Recovery Specialist myself, with Ronda’s encouragement. I completed the program in October of 2018, amazed at how far I had come in the year since all of the losses of 2017. Thanks to Ronda and GRM, I am ready to rebuild my Life and help others do the same, pay it forward.

This program brought up old feelings and memories that I have busy trying not to deal with over the years. Growing up had both of my parents were alcoholics and my son is an alcoholic and in recovery. I started this program so that I could find peace that I have been unable to find. This program allowed me to let go of these relationships and grieve the loss in a very healthy way. My mother is currently terminal and I believe that I have said all I need to say to my mom before she passes away. I have also made a job change that i don't think I would have been confident enough to change or had the strength to change, unless I had completed this program. There is a freedom that I cannot describe.

This program was absolutely necessary for my healing. We worked through my grief of losing a dear friend but also worked through the grief and loss of two marriages. It has opened my eyes and prepared me for healthy relationships in the future.

When I first began the Grief Recovery method I was genuinely looking forward to working through some of the unfinished grief I had towards the loss of my father. The program really allowed me to get in touch with my emotions and express the loss I was feeling. I am feeling so much more balanced with a less heavy heart. I'm glad I took part in this program.
