Certified Grief Educator by David Kessler
Certified Grief Support Specialist by University of WI-Madison
I became a survivor of suicide loss when my 19-year-old son died by suicide in 2015. I found great comfort and healing in attending a suicide-specific support group where I could share my pain with others that understood the loss and trauma I was experiencing. Now, I do my best to take my personal experience and the training I have received to sit with and support others on their grief journeys.
Please allow me the honor of being fully present and sitting with you as you share your love and grief with me. Allow me to create a safe place to support you in your grief, to remind you that you are not alone on this journey. I am here to help you acknowledge and encourage you to express your grief and all that you are feeling and experiencing. To be with you as you dive into your grief work, to help you find tools and resources that you can use to help you cope with your grief, and integrate your loss into your life so you can love and live fully as you carry your love and memories with you. It is my honor and privilege to support you in one-on-one sessions and/or as part of a support group.
