Loss of a Loved One

If at this moment you are experiencing the loss of a loved one, my heart goes out to you. I know it is very painful and at times we wonder how we can even concentrate, as grief affects us at all levels: your health may suffer; your relationships may be challenging; your job may an impossible task.

It’s natural. You are grieving.

I Understand,

because I have experienced two great losses that have shaped my life. The first one when I was 12 and lost my beloved father. It was devastating and it was my inspiration to enter this sacred world of helping the bereaved.

Now, as an adult, I lost my beloved centenarian mother on June 7th, 2020. Her loss has inspired me even more to be next to you, the bereaved, and offer you my helping hand.

When we lose a loved one, we may experience many emotions and may lack the desire to continue walking in this journey we call life. Well, let me tell you, you can do it taking a step at a time, as I did. I know that in many circumstances it may not be easy to think we can live a fulfilling or a meaningful life. Still, it all depends on our attitude and how we respond to what is happening to us. It is important (and necessary I would say) to grieve.

I love to work with people facing a loss or major life transition such as the death of a loved one, a divorce or break-up (or relationship challenges); loss of identity; suffering from stress, fear, or personal limitations. If you feel stuck in your grief, I can help you. My heart is helping the bereaved navigate grief and find meaning in life again.

It’s important to open our hearts to help us continue and embrace life again.

I am here to accompany you and guide you in your grieving and healing process.

In our life journey we encounter many challenging life transitions, some may be overwhelming or too painful to accept.

As we experience grief or hardship, we need support and understanding. Allow me to provide you guidance and care in your transition.
