After my mother was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer, I found myself in the role of her Primary Caregiver at the age of 35. Taking her to multiple weekly doctor appointments, making sure she took medications appropriately, helping her with day-to-day activities, keeping track of new symptoms, all while working full-time and taking care of my own home was overwhelming!

I know firsthand how uniquely difficult, challenging, exhausting, and rewarding this complex role can be.

After she died, I realized that I needed help dealing with the deep emotions that I was experiencing. I took part in a year-long grief group consisting of other people who had recently experienced the death of a parent. While the details of our experiences were vastly different, knowing that I wasn't alone in this journey provided me with deeply profound comfort and I discovered a great source of strength inside me.

The journey of grief provides an opportunity for great personal growth, reflection, and resilience.

While this path is not a simple one and resilience isn’t easily found, with time, patience, and more than anything, support, your own inner strength can be cultivated and hope restored. In addition to my personal journey, I hold a Master’s Degree in Thanatology and am a certified grief counselor through the American Institute of Healthcare Professionals (AIHCP), equipping me with the necessary skills and knowledge to guide others through their grief. I have been working in the grief field for the last 8 years, facilitating bereavement groups, providing support one on one, and educating the community about the grief process.

I truly love this work. I love the resilience of the human spirit I have witnessed in this work. I am honored and grateful to provide a safe, compassionate place for a person to grieve.
