Chris is a health and wellness educator specializing in grief. She combinines personal experience, knowledge, and skills she learned after the sudden and unexpected losses of her adult daughter and mother and the timely death of her father. As an adoptee, she recognizes grief associated with members of adoption triads (adoptee, adopted parents, and birth parents).
Chris created “Nurturing Ourselves Through Grief” which focuses on how grief affects all domains of health and how we can find a path to wellness while still honoring our grief. As a grief educator, Chris:
offers one-on-one support for those in grief and those who want to support them
educates others on how grief affects 8 dimensions of wellness (physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, financial, occupational, and environmental) and guides grievers on their journey to wellness
believes people need support and skill development to more effectively heal places in the domains they choose to work on
Grief absolutely affects our minds and bodies. We need care!
