Grief Recovery Method

The Grief Recovery Method Program is an independent program not affiliated with any religious organization. The program is belief-neutral as the skills taught through it are universally applicable and do not undermine any faith or belief system. This dynamic experience is the most sensible, accessible, and authentic plan available for recovery from loss. Each program is taught in a 7-week one-on-one format or an 8-week group format by a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. 

I became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist because the Grief Recovery Method changed my life and my healing journey. Going through the program myself was one of the best decisions I ever made for my own heart and I love taking others through the life-changing insights and skills the method teaches. I know it will change your life the way it changed mine. 

It is an experiential, action-based program with homework assignments that will teach you to take action to recover from grief and all kinds of loss, including but not limited to:

  • Deaths of anyone important to you: spouses, parents, children, partners, friends, family members.
  • Miscarriage, still-birth, infant death, abortion, genetic or birth defects, infertility
  • Adoption that fell through, removal of a foster child
  • Accidents, illnesses, or other life-altering change-
  • Divorce or loss of a long-term partner, infidelity, or betrayal
  • Loss of loved ones to prison or deportation
  • Loss of a business, home, or dream
  • Any loss you identify as being deeply part of you - especially if it's never been acknowledged
  • Death of a less-than-loved one: a person in which you had a difficult or painful relationship or lack of relationship with who passed away before you could resolve your issues. 

You will look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, what losses have affected your life, and how to take new actions that will lead to the completion of the pain attached to those losses. As a result, you find that you are able to discover and complete what was left emotionally unfinished due to a death, a divorce, or other major losses.

While grief is normal and natural, most of the information passed on within our society about dealing with loss is not normal, natural, or helpful. Grief is the emotional response to loss, but most of the information we have learned about dealing with loss is intellectual. Some myths about grief exist in our society and psyche, confusing the healing process and causing grievers to become stuck. 

Sometimes we create inaccurate memory pictures in which we either enshrine or villainize the person who died or the loss event. This phenomenon increases with time, making it more difficult to connect with the truth within our relationships/circumstances and resolve our pain. Other times we shut in our feelings and shut out healing refusing to even address our recovery. We become stagnant and remain in pain simply because we don’t know what to do.

Why the Grief Recovery Method Program?

Many grief programs provide an environment for you to verbalize the thoughts and feelings you experience following a loss. While there is a benefit to that kind of expression, it is not enough. Only talking about how you feel does not complete the unfinished emotional business that is attached to a loss. 

The Grief Recovery Method Program is designed to guide you through a series of actions to not only verbalize your feelings but help you complete the pain associated with those feelings.

People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what that means or what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method Program, developed and refined over the past 30 years, not only makes that possible but provides guidance to ensure that it happens.

Don’t wait any longer. Time alone will not heal your broken heart.
