- No! It is never too soon (or too late) to address your grief. If you broke your leg, would you wait to call the doctor? Of course, not! Then why wait to get help when you break your heart?
2. You’ve probably heard that time heals all wounds. That piece of misinformation creates the idea that you have to wait to feel better. Some, like myself, waited thirty years and still didn’t feel better. And I will tell you that not only had time not healed me, but it also compounded the pain. It’s not time that heals, but what you do within time.
Outstanding program. I had no idea what to expect from this program however knew I had to do something as my emotional life was a mess. I came grieving my sister’s death, who was also my best friend. I focused on my mother and my inability to have a close relationship with her due to dementia.
Victoria, and the program, led me to work on my past and my relationship with my mom. I am now FREE! It feels like a heavy weight has been taken from me. I no longer have regrets. I no longer dwell in the past. Thank you.
Is a group program for you, or is one-on-one a better fit?

Q & A’s About the In-Person & Online Group Programs
Q & A’s
How does the support group work?
In a group program, you’ll be taken through a series of action steps where each week builds on each other. You only share what you want in the large group. It is in small group, during break-out sessions where you share the most and only what you’re open to sharing. Safety in sharing is priority #1.
Is this only for working on the death of a loved one?
All losses are welcome! Death, divorce, and diagnosis are the most common, but there are over 40 losses that cause grief.
I have been diagnosed with depression/anxiety - is this for me?
When it comes to depression/anxiety, to be a participant, we look at the severity. We all experience depressive episodes in our lives, and mild anxiety is normal and common. To complete this program, you should be able to function in your day-to-day life, express yourself, and focus and complete the heart work contained within the program.
What can I expect from our time together?
During each two-hour session, you’ll be welcomed into a confidential, non-judgmental space where you’ll be expected to share the truth of your story as it happened to you. You’ll also be expected to complete weekly reading and heart work assignments.
From me, you can expect open ears and an open heart ready to receive your story. I’m also available to answer logistical questions about the program and support between sessions. I will also not tolerate someone participating who is not committed to doing the work.
Participants feeling safe in sharing is of utmost importance to me. Therefore, weekly attendance is imperative to maintain the program’s integrity and allow every participant to have a positive experience.
What should I bring?
A notebook, something to write with, water, and tissues. There will be a book provided and worksheets if in person. Online group participants will also receive a book.
I'm not very techie, is the online group for me?
Zoom is the platform used for the online group program.
If the tech aspect of the program is the only thing holding you back, we will get on a pre-program call to help get you acquainted and comfortable with Zoom.
There are also helpful guides provided to familiarize yourself with Zoom as well.
Do I have to attend every week?
Yes! Your participation is key to your recovery! It also helps to maintain the program’s integrity within the small groups. If you repeatedly are not there for your partner, it impacts the other participant’s experience. If you miss a group session after the first two weeks, you’ll be asked to leave the program with the opportunity to finish with another group at another time.
How is The Grief Recovery Method® different from therapy?
The Grief Recovery Method® is a series of steps specifically designed to help you recover from major loss within a set time frame. Unlike traditional therapy, The Grief Recovery Method® comes with a pre-established framework, a distinct focus on grief, and a limited number of meetings. If you are seeing a therapist, I encourage the program as an add-on to the work you are already doing. Typically, I will request the therapist’s blessing for their client to participate in grief recovery – especially if there is a mental health challenge diagnosis.

The program is not easy! You have to be willing to do the work, and be honest, in order to get something out of it. This was very, very hard for me!! A lot of emotions every week. But, it was well worth it in the end. I feel like a different person than the one that started the program. Thank you!!
