Bereavement Coaching

Bereavement Coaching at graveGrief Recovery
Loss of a spouse, partner, child, friend or relative regardless of age is still a loss. For many that loss is monumental and life changing. Loss can come as an end to a relationship, loss of job, a tragedy, an accident, illness such as cancer, or an unexpected death. In using my own experiences with loss of a partner, friends, family members, as well as walking the path with friends that have lost children along with being a certified bereavement coach, I am able to assist others in working through the grieving process by not overcoming but instead choosing how to live with the loss.
