Loss of A Loved One

Grief Recovery

Grievers are not broken; their hearts are. Grief is the natural and healthy response to any substantial loss, but sometimes the pain can be overwhelming, preventing you from moving forward and living your life. So, how do you heal a broken heart? That’s what Anne-Marie’s grief recovery counseling programs are all about.

What Are You Experiencing?

You are feeling overwhelmed, stuck or hopeless.

You are just surviving.

You know that life could be better than it is.

You don’t want to stay where you are but don’t know what to do to move.

What is Grief Recovery?

It’s a proven and effective method that provides the tools, space, and support to work through and release the pain of a significant life loss. It’s all about taking action steps to process the loss.

What kind of losses do you work with?

There are over 43 different types of losses that can cause grief, and this program can help you through all of them. Death, divorce, broken relationships, and life-changing illnesses are the most common, but if you are uncertain it could help with your type of grief, please feel free to schedule a call  or email me.

Do I have to attend every session?

Yes. If you miss a session, you’ll be asked to reschedule. A commitment to attend and complete the work is essential to your success.

What if I’m scared or uncomfortable about doing this?

These feelings are absolutely normal and healthy. It’s not easy for us to share our hearts and deal with deep hurts. BUT I promise you, it’s worth it! Do you want to stay where you are? Don’t let fear keep you from being set free. You will not do this alone. I will be your guide and help you overcome. It takes courage to heal. And we will do it together.

Do you offer online sessions?

Yes, I offer online video grief recovery counseling sessions as well as seeing clients in my office in Anaheim. I’ve worked with people all over the US and Canada, but even locals sometimes find it easier to meet online to save time and spare dealing with traffic.

What can I expect from our time together?

During each session, you’ll be welcomed into a confidential, non-judgmental space where you can safely discover the impact of your loss and process through all the unresolved grief and emotions. I will provide you with tools and information and guide you through the book, The Grief Recovery Method. My approach is unique for each client’s needs. I’ve got you and won’t let you go.

It’s my commitment to walk you through this journey while giving you a safe place to heal. There will be weekly reading assignments, or what I like to call “heartwork” that takes about an hour a week.

What should I bring with me to a session?

Everything will be provided. Feel free to bring a notebook or journal.

How is Grief Recovery different from therapy?

Grief Recovery is a series of steps specifically designed to help you recover from a significant life loss. It is an evidence-based program and it works! Unlike traditional therapy, Grief Recovery comes with a defined framework, a distinct focus on loss, and a limited number of meetings. Through the program, you will receive tools you can use for the rest of your life. Clients continually tell me
“Everyone needs to go through this!”

Client Journeys

“Hands down one of the best experiences with a healer I have ever encountered. Anne-Marie as a person is healing, so the work she does flows naturally. She creates a sacred space for you to be yourself, unhurried and without judgment. She is truly gifted!”

Talia Bombola

Marriage & Family Therapist

“Anne-Marie is amazing! I felt completely understood and validated. It was like I mattered! It is just the way she speaks to you and has the ability to look deep in your eyes and understand who you are. I felt so safe as we processed my unresolved grief. I have a lightness in my life now. Everyone needs to do this!”

Monica Nordquist

“Anne-Marie was able to connect with the audience immediately and deeply, she had them crying but also, at times, laughing. Her down-to-earth demeanor and genuine concern along with her educational content had a powerful impact.”

Dr. Les Triché
