I'm a professional suicide bereavement advisor with 20 years' experience who also lost my own brother to suicide. I work with individuals, couples, families, and communities nationwide (by Zoom, phone, and in-person) who are coping with the suicide of someone they love. Email joanneharpel@icloud.com for more information.

Have you lost someone to suicide? Are you struggling to understand WHY? Are you re-living those last hours and days over and over again, trying to make sense of it all? Do you feel like no one 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 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 work with survivors of suicide loss across the country, including by Zoom or phone. I also run several Zoom-based suicide bereavement support groups that are open to survivors of suicide loss wherever you're located. 
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. Please, email me at joanneharpel@icloud.com and we'll take it from there.
