The Goal of the Grief Recovery Method is to help you complete your relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by significant emotional loss. While death and divorce may seem to be the most obvious losses, our groups are not limited to those losses. There are more than 40 life events that can produce feelings of grief.
Hi my name is Erika - I want to share with you how the Grief Recovery Method changed my life. I came to the program with over 30 years in AA and 27 in Al-Anon - and thought I was doing ok. But this program moved my life in a direction that freed me from pain and grief in a way I could never have imagined. The freedom to release the things that were holding me back - the grief and pain - have been removed and my greatest desire is to help you feel that freedom too
On May 9, 2009, I lost my 32 year old son to Alcohol and my journey into Grief Recovery began. I used a 12 Step program, meditation, mediums, massage, tapping, Reiki, Beyond Quantum Healing, smudging, and so on in search of healing. In the last 11 years, I have lost my mom, my sister, multiple pets, and I retired. I have "counseled" countless friends through losses in a group setting and one-on-one. With all my experience, it was assumed I was an expert but I had no formal training. At the beginning of Covid 19, my husband and I separated. I moved to my daughter's home, leaving my husband, home and 7 pets behind. With these losses at a time when everyone's world was shaken, I slipped down into a chasm of grief without any idea how to climb out of it. A friend suggested that I needed a purpose to look forward to, perhaps counseling. I was only interested in Grief counseling. I researched Grief Recovery and this Grief Recovery Method Institute came very highly recommended to me. I choose to invest in myself and signed up for the training. That has turned out to be the best decision I could have made. Today I have new tools to handle my grief and to offer to others. More importantly, today I have hope!
I am located in Mesa, AZ. I am offering small group meetings and one-on-one meetings. I follow the CDC and local guidelines with respect for Covid 19. If you need some direction to finding recovery and hope, please email me. I look forward to hearing from you. This was the last thing I tried and the first thing to work because it wasn't therapy.
