Your Friend in Grief provides useful information and tools to help you now. I share my experiences from a personal and professional perspective...
I am frequently asked "How do I get through this?"
My response... "Have patience with yourself... it can seem that you are living moment by moment at first.. then you realize you are living day to day. Eventually, the grief changes though you don't ever forget your Loved One."
In all honesty, no one wants to hear this...Your Friend in Grief is the closest online step-by-step guide to grief that I've seen. I've given you the best tools to help you understand YOUR grief proven by my work with own clients since 2009. I've companioned thousands of folks through their Transformational Griefwork.
You don't have to try to figure it out all on your own.
I have had my own personal experience with grief. Sudden death due to asthma, suicide, death due to cancer, loss after long term illness and unexpected accidental death. I know each of my relationships were unique and each grief was equally different.
Life may seem uncertain right now. After significant deaths, my life was different. After caregiving, my life was different. Now, in my understanding of my grief, I am still different. I have and will continue to grow and deepen my relationship with my spirit through these experiences. I'm here to tell you, there is hope.
I decided to make a necessary and rewarding change to counseling and art therapy after caregiving for my own mother-in-law. So, Art Therapy and Counseling are a second career for me that began In 2009. I am licenced for counseling in both Illinois and Indiana and nationally certified as a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Registered Art Therapist. I have presented throughout Illinois and have traveled in the US to present regarding art therapy, grief, and coping. I certainly have the trustworthy credentials though walking beside requires more than that... It takes time, heart and commitment - that's what I'm offering to you.
