Grief Counseling

Grief Counseling


“The most beautiful people we have known are those why have known, defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, as sensitivity, and an understanding of live that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep-loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I serve those experiencing the deep waves of grief. Family members enduring a significant loss, including children, teens and young adults who’ve lost a parent and the parents and siblings of deceased teens, children, and infants. I’m also committed to serving those who’ve endured the pain of pregnancy loss and infertility. I’ve worked extensively with families served by hospice and perinatal hospice services. I continue to embrace the profound privilege of journeying with individuals and families through this incredibly difficult form of grief.

I have developed trainings on how grieving families can best be supported by friends and family. My husband and I have worked extensively with families served by hospice and perinatal hospice services. I continue to embrace the profound privilege of journeying with individuals and families through this incredibly difficult form of grief. My husband and I have over 100 direct quotes sharing insightful perspectives on grief shared throughout A Gift of Time: Continuing Your Pregnancy When Your Baby’s Life is Expected to be Brief by Amy Kuebelbeck and Deborah Davis, published by Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010.
