Have you lost someone to suicide? Are you struggling to understand WHY? Are you re-living those last hours, days, even years, over and over and over again, trying to make sense of it all? Do you feel like noone really understands what you're going through? Maybe you're even feeling guilty, wondering if you missed a sign or an opportunity, or whether it was something you said or did (or didn't say or do). Are you worried about yourself or someone else now? Are you wondering whether you'll ever feel like yourself again? I can help.
Suicide loss is unique. I deeply understand the pain and complexity-not only do I have 20 years' professional experience but I also lost my own brother to suicide.(I'm based in NYC but can easily work by phone or videochat). I can help you make sense of what's happened, give you tools to cope, and most of all, offer you hope that you can get through this. I've been there. And I'm here.
