We generally identify the word “loss” with the death of a loved one, but there are other types of losses which could also bring grief into our lives.

I’ve worked extensively with older adults, providing the compassion, empathy, and care they need in times of loss or transitions.


Grief at work affects the person facing the loss, the manager of the company, and the people working with someone enduring the loss.

What People Ask

What is grief?
Grief is the natural and unique response to loss. It is unique because we are unique persons, our grief is unique.
How can I overcome grief?
It is common to use the word “overcome” when we talk about grief. However, when we lose a loved one, we learn to live with the loss, as love is eternal. We can transform our grief as we give ourselves the space to acknowledge the pain, validate it and process it.
Am I ever going to be happy again?
Now, I ask you. Do you want to be happy again? If you responded yes, then you will. Remember, when there is a will, there is a way. Happiness is a state that comes from the inside out. Many times in honoring our loved one, we can find joy in our heart.
