Welcome!! I can’t wait to meet you…Come as you are, there is no judgement here.
My name is Janelle, Advanced Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist® and I am so glad you are considering attending the Grief Recovery Institute® educational classes.
You are worth the investment and hold the key to your healing.
Here is a bit of my story and where my journey with grief began:
When I was six, my older brother Jerry passed away. I was lost without him. During this time, I also experienced loss of safety and trust surrounding another situation. I experienced mental, physical and sexual abuse in my young life. I was a victim of sexual abuse as a young girl as well. With the death of my brother, my parents were not emotionally available to help me. I felt abandoned and isolated.
I have experienced many physical deaths, my Grandparents, my Parents, my sister Judy and brother Jimmy within four months of each other in 2021. I had two significant pets in my life, Snookies and Sasha. Both were extremely difficult deaths.
I struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, I wanted a place to belong and fit in. I have blessed to have walked a journey of recovery for 29 years.
One loss you may not think of as grief would be a diagnosis of a chronic illness. When my son was born; my hopes, dreams and expectations were shattered when I got the news about his life changing diagnosis.
In late 2021, I found The Grief Recovery Method®, which literally saved my life. The impact of this program is so life-changing I decided to become a Grief Recovery Method Specialist®.
I am so grateful to be able to bring hope and healing through these exceptional programs.
Are you ready to embark on leaving the pain behind and free yourself to live a life of happiness and freedom?
If so, I would be honored to walk with you on your journey with any loss you have incurred; such as, addiction, birth of a child with disabilities, suicide, infant loss, job loss, abortion, caring for a sick parent, miscarriage, death, divorce and many others.
With love and light ~
