HIRE ME FOR INDIVIDUAL GRIEF COUNSELING: I specialize in supporting people with a broken heart or those that have lost a parent or caregiver, a child (including miscarriages), or even a beloved animal. This type of support guides you to practice gently welcoming your grief by bringing your attention to your body and physical sensations to understand what you are needing in the present moment. You will receive tools and resources to support you to continue your healing in daily life.
WHAT IS IT? 1:1 sessions designed to help you embrace your grief and heal after a major loss. Each session is one hour each.
WHERE? My office is located in San Francisco, California on Market Street (Lower). Skype sessions are also available.
CADENCE OF SESSIONS? The most effective cadence is to meet at the same time every week. We will continue our work together until you feel ready to complete.
WHAT TO EXPECT? Each session is based on what you are needing that day. We'll use meditation, breath-work, or movement to get connected the body. It is essential to connect with the body and tune into your feelings and physical sensations in order to heal.
HIRE ME TO FACILITATE A CEREMONY: There are many ways to honor a major loss. Each faith has its beliefs and every individual has their unique traditions and needs. An important element of healing after a loss is to come together in community to witness and support one another. Together we create a healing atmosphere to embrace the reality of this new normal. We will celebrate the relationship that lives on beyond physical form with stories, gratitude, praise, and love.
WHAT IS IT? An official ceremony that I will facilitate for you based on your specific needs to honor your loss and formerly initiate you and your loved ones into this new chapter of life that you are stepping into.
WHO SHOULD I INCLUDE? I recommend including anyone that is near and dear to you and that is impacted by this loss in some way. The most important thing is that they are open and willing to participate in whatever ceremony you and I design together. This can be as small as 4 people and as big as 50.
BASIC ORDER OF SERVICE: You and I will design the basic order of service together. I have a set of questions I'll ask you to find out more about what traditions or rituals you'd like to include, as well as details about the loved one we are honoring. I will give you any suggestions or guidance you might be needing to create something truly special and profoundly perfect.
TIMING: The ceremony can range anywhere from three hours to five hours.
