My Grief Project

Walk the journey of grief towards healing with me.  

Each month I try different healing techniques I have learned as a professional pyscho-therapist on myself, in effort to soothe some of the pain from being a bereaved parent.  Outlined below are the healing techniques I have used or will use in the upcoming months.  I write about my experience with each technique on Friday of every week.  Feel free to follow along.
