In 2013 my world as I knew it changed forever. I lost my only sister, and within the next year and a half, my mother and father died, leaving me devastated and feeling abandoned. I felt I had no reason to go on, as I struggled with emptiness, loneliness, and hopelessness.
I knew I needed help but was reluctant, being a very private person. I was referred to Natalie Segall and thus began my healing process. It took courage, many tears, and heartache, but with my therapist's support, compassion, and insight, I began slowly to find my way back to life. Once I felt I could function a little more ‘normally,’ I realized I wanted to reach out and help those who were also struggling with loss issues. I learned about the workshop for grieving children and teens and became a volunteer. My choice was very personal. I cannot think of a better way of commemorating my sister's life than thru Good Grief Central.
I joined Good Grief Central's Board of Directors, and now dedicate my time to a cause that strives to make a difference through its continued commitment to helping those in need of their services. At Good Grief Central, we all share the same vision of hope and healing. I continue to travel my life-long grief journey, as my path is much clearer now.
