About Me

I never intended to study grief, but after suffering through several devastating losses, I became like many others, desperate for something that would heal my broken heart.  That's how I found The Grief Recovery Method®. Today, I am an Advanced Certified Grief Recovery Specialist with a passion for helping others.   

The Grief Recovery Method® is an evidence based action program for moving beyond death, divorce, diagnosis, financial, career and other losses. Regardless of the cause, you know how you feel and it probably isn't good. Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on your capacity for happiness. The Grief Recovery Method® offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss. 

Have you heard these myths of grief? 

  • Time heals all wounds

  • Replace the loss and move on

  • Don't feel bad

  • Be strong & be strong for others

  • Bury your feelings

  • Keep busy

These myths can keep grieving people trapped in a cycle of despair and depression. Grieving people want and need to be heard, not fixed.

Specialists trained in the Grief Recovery Method® help thousands of individuals each year. You too can benefit from this evidence based program developed and refined over three decades. Moving beyond death, divorce, pet loss, career crisis, financial devastation, PTSD, and more than 40 other losses IS possible and I would be honored to walk this journey with you.

We aren’t going to tell you, “We know how you feel,” because we don’t. Neither does anyone else. What we will do is provide a safe environment where you will be given specific tools to help you recover from loss and ultimately lead a happier life.  So what's next? You grow...and you help others.


I am available for online or in person one on one sessions (one hour a week for 7 weeks) as well as group sessions (two hours a week for 8 weeks).
