Life changes in an instant when a loved one dies. The intensity of sadness, regret, guilt, anger and/or anxiety one may experience can be overwhelming, all-consuming and make it difficult to navigate your basic day to day routine. Facing the reality of loss, the mixture of emotions that come with this and adjusting to a tremendous amount of life change is no easy feat. I have focused much of my career on helping others heal after the death of a loved one.
Healing doesn’t mean you forget or “move on” from your loved one. Healing is about learning to live with loss. It’s about the pain softening and becoming more manageable. It’s about being able to embrace life again with more joy and less pain. I would be honored to assist you with this process.
