My first significant loss was my grandfather's death in 1997.
It was an extremely emotional and devastating time, and not something I could just "get over". His loss was life-changing for me and laid a foundation that would eventually lead me to choose grief work in order to help others through their grief process.
In 2004, as a practicing Massage Therapist, I introduced a grief-specific massage treatment to my clients who had lost their spouses, parents, children, and pets. It wasn’t something that was being addressed at the time and it felt like an important & meaningful direction toward educating clients about the mind-body disturbance of holding onto their grief.
In 2014 I was introduced to the Grief Recovery Method. I went through the 8-week group workshop to work on the loss of my grandfather. I had been living with a broken heart for over seventeen years, and I was finally able to experience his memory in a positive way! In fact, when my grandmother died in January 2018, I had the coping skills I needed to get through her loss and it was a completely different experience than I had ever had before.
The transformation that GRM gave me was such a gift. Now, I want to share that gift with others because I know what a relief it is to move forward and past the pain.
I became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist in 2019 and recently received my Advanced Specialist Certification. Everyone has a grief story, but not everyone has to allow it to inhibit the happiness life still has to offer. And that’s my mission and passion in life, to ease the pain of broken hearts.
I am able to offer in-person private sessions in Tucson, AZ, and I can also provide “video chat” one-on-one sessions from anywhere in the Country. I welcome your contact, please reach out to me to get started on your own transformational journey
