I have background working for Hospice organizations and in bereavement care. I have received specialized training in perinatal loss, suicide grief, complicated grief, and the intersections of spirituality and grief. I consider myself to follow a companioning philosophy of grief-care. I value the silence, uncertainty, and mystery of grief. I do not believe the grief is something to be fixed. It is an experience to be felt! I also consider myself a grief educator teaching workshops and courses on grief, death and dying, and chronic illness. I work with individuals from a wide range of religious and spiritual backgrounds as well as those who identify as atheist and agnostic. I also work with and advocate for members of the LBGTQIA population. Whoever you are-you are welcome here!
