I am also a certified Grief Educator.
A Certified Grief Educator is committed to providing the highest level of grief support through education, experience, and insights into the often unacknowledged rocky terrain of grief. Certified Grief Educators completed a certificate program designed by world-renowned grief expert, David Kessler. They bring his unique methodology, tools, and decades of experience to help people navigate the challenges of grief.
I offer grief support for people who have suffered loss of their loved ones and struggling with life without them. Personally, having lost my mother in 2020, I came face to face with my own grief and what life has looked like coexisting with my grief. I try to bring, into grief sessions, an open understanding of how grief is a lifelong journey and not just an isolated event that we are all so conditioned to believe. I help grievers understand their grief and how best to honor it.
