Grief Recovery With Laurie was established as a place of community and healing for those of us who have experienced great loss and in turn great pain.
In my experience with helping people overcome their personal grief, I've found that there is some confusion around what it is they actually want to GAIN.
Have you thought about what life would look like without sadness and pain?
Do I want to continue to suffer this pain for the rest of my life?
Many think this is their only option. Many think that they will never be happy again. This is not true! You have options. I am willing to walk alongside you in whatever journey you are on without judging you, making you feel inadequate, trying to fix you, or trying to impact the outcome.
When we hold space for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgement and control. We are Hearts with Ears.

Grief is the normal and natural emotional reaction to any change that has impacted a life.
Often people buy-in to the myths about grief. It is not unusual, after a loss, that there are many things that must be done. Often people decide that they "must be strong" for all those around them and suppress their own feelings of pain and loss, so that they can be there for others. Some people feel that the best way to handle their personal loss is to "keep busy" with work or other endeavors, rather than taking time to go through the grief process.
I was one of these people. After the loss of my son and husband in 2010 to suicide, I was 'strong' for everyone around me. I immersed myself in volunteer work with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, work, and caring for my daughter and her sons. Following the loss of my daughter in 2015, the grief that I had suppressed for many years multiplied. I knew that I needed help.
I believe unresolved grief is the major underlying issue in most people's lives. As someone who has endured losses, I have learned the problem with grief is that if you fail to take action to deal with your personal emotional pain, and instead suppress it, it waits deep inside to haunt you later.
Successful recovery from loss involves sorting out the things that were incomplete and putting voice to those things we wish might have been different or better. It also involves dealing with the dreams and expectations of a different future than what is being faced after that loss. This is the foundation for the Grief Recovery Method.
The Grief Recovery Method® provides the tools needed and the action steps we can take in order to be able to complete our grief and live our lives more fully.
Coming through my experience, I felt a calling to help others who have endured losses and help them and myself heal and lead happy lives.
