The Grief Recovery Method®

As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, I work with grievers using the Grief Recovery Method Program®. This Program is based on The Grief Recovery Handbook, The Action Program for Moving Beyond Death, Divorce, and Other Losses Including Health, Career, and Faith by authors John W. James and Russell Friedman, the founders of the Grief Recovery Institute.

I know from personal experience that this Program works because it helped me recover from the pain of grief after the death of my mother from cancer. I consider it a great honor to share this valuable Program with other grievers in the Salem area.

The Grief Recovery Method Program® is a highly structured, time-limited Program that guides grievers through a series of specific actions designed to complete emotional communications and open the pathway to grief recovery.

For a better understanding of the Grief Recovery Method®, take a few moments to view some or all of the following videos. The first video explains the Program, and the other videos are personal testimonials from Program Alumni. (Please note: after viewing each video you will need to hit your back button to return to my website).

I offer the Grief Recovery Method Program® to groups and individuals. Groups meet once a week for twelve, 90-minute sessions; the course fee is $350. Individuals meet one-on-one with me, normally once a week, for seven sessions; the individual program also costs $350. All course materials are covered in the fee and will be supplied to you at our first meeting. Usually these courses are paid for out-of-pocket. However, in some cases your insurance may cover all or part of the fee, or you may be able to pay the fee from your health savings account.

To register for the next course, or to schedule a free introductory phone consult, please call me at 503 860-9276.

The Grief Recovery Method® is not affiliated with any faith, religion, or spiritual belief, and the use of the Grief Recovery Method® would not interfere with your personal religious or spiritual practices.
