Mary Hargrave will be your partner and coach in utilizing the Grief Recovery Method® to process your loss and move forward.

Through an eight-week program, you will work with Mary to complete a 16-step action plan that includes the following:

  1. Examining the misinformation you have learned about grief and why these ideas actually make you feel worse instead of better.
  2. Preparing for the recovery process, including looking at unresolved grief from your past and understanding why short-term relief can lead to long-term problems.
  3. Creating solutions to address the emotional, mental and physical effects of grieving that work for you.

Once the initial program is complete, you will have an option to continue working with Mary on a maintenance schedule.

Why it works.

Grief Recovery Method®

When you are suffering from a loss, you may think that you have no choice except to endure it and hope it gets better in time. But that’s not true. You have options that can get you out from under this cloud. 

The Grief Recovery Method® is an evidence-based program that has been studied by health professionals and proven to show real results in helping grievers deal with the pain of loss and find happiness again.

No one knows how you really feel.

“I know just how you feel.”

“They wouldn’t want you to be sad.”

“Time heals all wounds.”

You may have heard, or even said, some of these oft-repeated statements about grief. But in truth, no one knows how you really  feel. Being sad is a normal part of grief. And time can help, but doesn’t truly heal the pain of grief.
