When life pulls the rug from under you, it shatters everything that felt so comfortable to you into a trillion tiny pieces.

A death… a divorce… a breakup… a financial loss… the loss of a dream… the loss of something you value or something important to you.

The experience knocks you completely off your feet and onto your knees.

We ALL face big blows at some point. The aftermath differs slightly from one person to the next…

Yet, in many ways, grief is pretty much the same for everyone.

At first, you’re in shock… “Did this actually happen!?”

As reality sets in, you feel like your world has caved in around you with nowhere to turn.

Shock turns into fear… anxiety… overwhelm…

“What am I going to do!?”

“How am I going to get through this!?”

“My life will NEVER be the same!”

The main difference between you and someone else is how you journey through it all.

After the death of my husband, EVERYTHING about my life changed in a heartbeat.

My perspective and priorities changed dramatically — something that commonly happens when you experience a traumatic event.

It ROCKED my world to its very core!

I lost interest in everything. I didn’t want to see or talk to anyone. I could barely function. Yet…

When I finally reached out for help I found myself feeling better soon after. The comfort and support helped me realize I wasn’t alone. My strength and resilience grew.

No… nothing will ever be the same. Life has been like a WILD and SCARY roller coaster ride filled with thousands of ups and downs and challenges.

But… my desire to help others… my second act… became crystal clear in the process of finding my new self and my new life.

I’m using all the experience, wisdom, knowledge and skill I’ve gained to help you and other grievers…

  • To help you release the heavy, unrelenting SUFFERING…
  • To provide you with the support and guidance you need to begin the healing process…
  • To help you get back on your feet… to move forward… to open a new chapter…and make the best of life after loss…
  • To inspire you to find yourself again and possibly become a stronger, better version of yourself.

I want to be the catalyst that helps you step into the light and embrace life again, to be free to find new purpose and achieve things you didn’t think were possible, to live a purposeful life free of guilt.

If I can help you do even one of these things, you will feel better.

The Benefits of Reaching Out for Help

In times of a crisis, traumatic event or major loss, many of us try to buck-up… pull ourselves up by the bootstraps… suffer through it.

This only prolongs suffering.

When I was trying to figure out how to put my life back together after my husband died, seeking help and support was the best thing I did for myself.

On my own, I just couldn’t sort out everything that needed sorting. The pain was too great, I was scared and in complete overwhelm.

Even though I really didn’t feel much like it, I somehow knew that reaching out for help was what I needed to do… and it changed everything for me.

  • The heavy burden I was carrying began to lighten…
  • I started to feel hopeful…
  • My strength and courage grew…
  • The sun began to penetrate the gray world I was living in and the sky turned blue again…
  • I began to smile and laugh again…
  • and my heart began to open.

The same can happen to you. The importance and potential power of counseling should not be overlooked. You are not alone and you don’t have to endure the sorrow and pain all by yourself.

If you have suffered ANY significant or traumatic life event, you have a choice. You can stay stuck in your emotional pain and hope for the best… or… when you’re ready, give yourself permission to heal, ask for help, take control of your new reality, learn how to rebuild and move forward.
