Grief hits us for a variety of reasons and can be quite crippling if we don’t know what to do with it, how to navigate through it, and how to thrive (and be happy) despite our loss.
Are you suffering extreme grief from the loss of your marriage, your job, death of a loved one, or any other extreme loss in your life? Grief is one of the most deviating emotions and can cause extreme symptoms if not dealt with properly. It can affect your physical and mental health, your career, sleep quality, relationships, and can seep into every area of your life to create devastation.
In this episode, I talk with Diana Hernandez, an International Grief Coach helping others process and springboard from grief. Diana became a grief coach after recovering from the experience of extreme loss in her own life. In addition to working with clients, Diana hosts support groups and grief dinners to create community and support among fellow grievers.
Come join us for this powerful conversation that just may give you permission to free yourself from crippling grief you may be experiencing from loss in your life.
