— Mary Hargrave - Grief Coping specialist

About Me

I’m Mary Hargrave. I assist those suffering from grief to restore happiness again.

During her career as a social worker and licensed practical nurse, Mary Hargrave has coached many families and individuals through  the pain of loss.

Through this work and her own personal experiences, Mary discovered her passion for finding a better way to develop grief coping strategies.

After the death of her best friend, who completed suicide, Mary found that even “through all of my studies and life experiences, I was not prepared for this sudden loss. I was never given the tools  and steps to grieve with any positive outcomes.”

Mary learned about the work of the Grief Recovery Institute, whose founders created the Grief Recovery Method®, an innovative, educational and practical approach to helping people move through the grieving process.

“The Grief Recovery Method gave me the tools I needed to recover from grief and regain energy and spontaneity. It also gave me the motivating factors to assist anyone who may be suffering heartache, hopelessness and sadness to find joy and happiness again.”

Mary has studied with the Grief Recovery Institute and completed its Advanced Grief Recovery Certification Training. She utilizes this training and her years of clinical experience in creating personalized  strategies for people to cope with grief and loss.

My credentials

Master’s Degree in Social Work, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

What I love most about being a Grief Coping Specialist is making a difference in someone’s life, helping them to understand their behaviors and thoughts, and then seeing them go forward with a new sense of freedom from the pain they have been carrying.
