"What you do in the time of your greatest trial can become your greatest triumph." Neal Donald Walsh
When loss unravels the very fabric of our lives, we feel helpless and hopeless. As choiceless as loss is, there is comfort and hope in the fact that we do actually have tremendous choice in how we heal. One of the most valuable choices we can make is to have a good support system, and to know that you don't have to go through it alone. Many people are fortunate enough to have the benefit of a built-in support system, and others may have to work at building one. Unfortunately, because of our western culture tends to be uncomfortable with death and intense emotions, many grieving people are left with few channels of support. My role is to offer a sacred space of awareness, education, a grounding presence, and deep support in helping you reweave the tapestry of your life. My practice is founded on the belief that no matter what loss you're walking through, there is something within you that is greater than your circumstances.....together, with time and tenderness, we bring forth your innate strengths, resources, and opportunities to discover the resiliency of the human spirit.
At A Resilient Heart, I bring eighteen years of rich experience, blending professional training with real-life wisdom of having "walked the talk" of healing. Though my career had its origins in Child Protective Services, my professional interest and passion has, since 1997, been in the field of grief and loss. Within this specialty, I have run several hospice bereavement programs, served as an adjunct professor for The University of Denver graduate counseling program, maintain a private practice devoted to grief and loss, and also serve on staff at The Christi Center, a non-profit healing center for grief and loss.
