My Philosophy

My vision for many years has been to create a safe environment for the bereaved where they can share and be supported in their grief. The gift of human connection is integral in moving through grief, yet so many people feel disconnected and adrift, unable to find anyone with whom they can freely express themselves without fear of judgment; someone who understands that simply getting up in the morning is sometimes enough of a victory for the day.


For over 10 years I have facilitated grief support groups as a Hospice patient care and bereavement volunteer. In addition to a Certification in Death, Dying and Bereavement (Certified Thanatologist), I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and am a Registered Nurse.


I offer you a safe haven: a place to share, where your feelings are truly honored, and the unwavering support to help you through your grief.
