Significant loss can be experienced as the result of

military deployment

incarceration of a loved one.


Significant loss creates a grief response which can follow us to

our jobs

sometimes even affecting our spirituality. 

"Your presentation was very professional, helpful, and sincere...."

"Amy, thank you for speaking at 'Coping with Grief Through the Holidays.'   We received many positive responses from those in attendance.  Your instructional guidance showed those grieving that they are not alone in the process and gave them numerous ideas of how to make the Holidays more tolerable.  Thank you again."
