Introducing Surviving Life After Loss

Surviving Life After Loss is a safe, private, compassionate online community where you’ll find understanding, friendship, inspiration and encouragement. It’s a place where you can share and connect with others who have lost someone they loved or something important to them… it can be anything.

Most of us are are experiencing unimaginable losses and changes right now, either because you’ve experienced some sort of significant loss or a loss resulting from COVID. Whatever the reason, we’re individually and collectively grieving.

During these troubled times, interconnectedness is vitally important. You need to know that you’re not alone or isolated. You are connected to others who can share your grief with you… where support is freely offered… in a place where you can heal with hope, grace and peace.

To do this you need a community led by a mentor with a road map to guide you and help you move forward to live your best life after loss.

Join the Surviving Life After Loss community for a weekly, live online gathering where we talk about grieving and tips and techniques that can help you feel better.

How a Grief Counselor Can Help

Grieving associated with death is familiar to most of us. But… you might be grieving in connection with another type of loss such as the end of a marriage or a relationship, ill health, mid-life aging or a financial loss.

These are all tragic losses, yet sadly part of life. The longer you live, the more often you’re confronted with mortality and the transience of life.

You can rage against it, get angry, become hostile and feel justified in doing so, or… you can choose to honor your loss and embrace life again.

The worst loss is your loss.
Your grief is valid and legitimate.

While you may be tempted to try and bury, defer or ignore your grief, this path almost always leads to depression, trauma and dysfunction soon after the loss.

Grieving is an essential aspect of human life and it must be embraced head-on.

You’re going through something, and you are not alone in it. There is hope for you here — all you need to do is reach out.

The acute pain you’re feeling right now probably feels overwhelming, particularly when you’ve lost someone you loved. You may even be feeling guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

Emotions related to grief include sadness, anxiety, guilt, anger and despair. Physical reactions to grief can include problems sleeping, changes in appetite, physical issues and even illness.

So, what now?

No Pressure… No Obligation… You Decide

Step #1

Initial Conversation

We begin with a complimentary call together. It is an easy way to introduce ourselves and see if counseling is a good fit for you. There is no obligation whatsoever — it’s just a conversation.

Step #2

Counseling Options

When you’re ready to start your healing journey, your options include private sessions, a small group, or a monthly subscription — whatever feels most comfortable to you.

Step #3

Your 1st Session

Congratulations… you’ve taken a courageous step from the darkness of grief and isolation into warm, healing light and the path to your new normal.

The Purpose of a Grief Counselor

I created my practice to give you a safe, comfortable place to share your grief with someone who understands exactly what you’re going through. I’m trained to support you and help you through the healing process so that you are able to turn the page and open a new, purposeful chapter of your life.

Questions?

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM A GRIEF COUNSELOR?

A grief counselor (practitioner) serves to actively listen to you, allow you to set your own agenda, offer you support and guidance, help you see things in a new light and to cheer you on as you heal.

HOW CAN A GRIEF COUNSELOR BE OF HELP TO ME?

For you to break through the pain you’re living right now, I believe one-to-one guidance and accountability is imperative. You will set the agenda for your sessions, have complete freedom to talk openly about your struggles, learn how to move beyond them and begin healing.

IS A GRIEF COUNSELOR THE SAME AS A THERAPIST?

No. Counselors and therapists each have their place, but play different roles. Although your past is part of your story, we stay primarily in the present moment to deal with what you’re going through now. We discuss how you want to move forward, then together, create a concrete plan to get you there.

WHERE WILL WE MEET?

For your comfort, convenience and safety, we meet by phone for individual coaching sessions. For group sessions we meet via Zoom, a popular online video conferencing service.

HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?

It varies depending on your needs. Individual sessions offer flexibility to suit your schedule. Group sessions meet at a designated time each week, usually on a weekday evening.

OVER WHAT PERIOD OF TIME WILL WE MEET?

Again, this will depend on you. Because everyone is different, no one can predict how long counseling will be needed.

• Individual sessions run 3-to-12 sessions (or longer if desired)

• Group series are offered in 8 and 12 week groups

If you have any questions I haven’t covered here, please feel free to contact me. I’m happy to speak with you.
