It was amazing how quickly the program opened up my eyes to the misconceptions and myths we often embody when dealing with our emotional sense of loss. As soon as I completed the program, I knew that I wanted to begin a journey to learn everything that I could about grief. Our culture is only just recently beginning to understand feelings of depression, grief and loss. Polite conversation wants us to avoid things that can sour a mood. Yet, these emotions still have a real and significant impact on our quality of life and health whether acknowledged or not.
I realized my life-long mission to educate and support people as they recover from loss.
