Grief is More Than Death Loss
Grief Coaching and Counseling Services
You are here because you have lost or are losing something you love deeply.
I am so sorry you are here. If you are here, your world has just been shattered by grief and loss and you are seeking help. And actually at this time in history, we are all grieving due to what is happening during this global pandemic.
Grief is much more than death loss. You may be feeling grief now because of being in lock down, you may have lost your job and financially security, you may be having to juggle a job with suddenly being a homeschool parent. We have lost our former lives as we knew it and we don’t know exactly what’s on the other side. We are all in this grief cocoon-this liminal goo between our prior lives and the new one to be.
I am here to offer myself as a grief guide. My passion is to help you navigate this bizarre territory called grief so that you can feel like yourself again. I want to help you find your way to grief relief.
And you may be wondering why I call myself the Grief Freak, yes? Well, I call myself that for a few reasons…we live in a culture that is freaky about grief and I strive to normalize grief in a world that doesn’t know what to do with it. And I also call myself that because after my loss, I dove into learning all I could about grief. I am devoted and passionate to helping you navigate this strange new wilderness.
In Scandanavia, the land of my ancestors, when someone was grieving, they’d invite them to sit at the center of the longhouse next to the fire for a year. The community would feed and hydrate them, and make sure they were warm. They were keenly aware that this grieving person was undergoing an initiation and they needed time and space away from daily duties to simply be with and begin to grok their losses. If I could I would love to have you come sit by the fire with me and just let me tend to you. Let me bear witness to you and hold you and your story.
So welcome lover…take a look around my website and see what makes sense for you. At this time I only offer services remotely until further notice. I have a new Online Grief Relief program for you to take at your own pace. It’s like getting 8 personal 1:1 sessions with me that show up in your inbox. Check it out.
And thanks for being here and tying to understand what’s happening to you and many others at this time.
Many many blessings to you!
