I have had experiences with multiple losses in my personal life and they have both inspired and informed my work in bereavement counseling and care. My Grandmother died when I was age 14, the first of many deaths of family members or influential mentors in my life. I was left devastated by the deaths of five neighborhood children in a house fire that I felt very close too.
I have experienced another kind of loss that were just as devastating when I became divorced at the age of 28 and was left to raise a young son alone. In addition, the subsequent deaths of my father, mother and oldest sister also left me reeling from personal losses for which I myself sought relief and guidance, further informing my work on the subject of bereavement and loss.
The loss and bereavement experienced by the hundreds of families that I have counseled over the years have also touched me profoundly and made my work in this area a personal sojourn. I have worked extensively with these families and it has provided me an experiential background that has proven successful in assisting most families and/or individual family members undergoing tremendous grief and loss.
As a Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator, I have supported patients and their families in the Philadelphia/Tri-State area for the past 15 years.
My guidance has helped hundreds through the dying process while in hospice care. My services have included in-depth processing of grief sessions with caregivers and their loved ones for thirteen months after death.
I strive to give them the support and the tools which will bring them into a renewed since of completion, utilizes the Grief Recovery Method or GRM, a method developed forty years ago and used successfully around the world as an action-based program for moving beyond the pain experienced due to death, divorce and other traumatic losses. "GRM is the best method to help the bereaved complete the conversation and enter a new phase of the relationship."
My goal is to reach as many grievers as possible with compassion and support. No one should have to grieve alone.
