I am a certified Grief Recovery Specialist with years of experience conducting grief workshops, retreats and support groups and I have personally dealt with many deaths. I am also the author of Over the Rainbow Bridge, (My son’s journey from here to Heaven), an inspiring book about my little boy’s cancer journey.
In Six-Word Lessons on Coping with Grief, you will find 100 practical tips to help you navigate the depths of grief. I wrote this book to help you understand that you are not alone and your emotions experienced after the death of a loved one are not unique. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. There is no time limit. And most importantly, grieving is not a mental illness.

So, now it’s time for useful information about grieving.
