Are you looking for a guide to help you navigate through your grief?
Are you mourning a loss due to an accident or natural disaster?
Has a chronic or life-threatening illness, or physical disability left you with more questions than answers about how to move forward and adjust to the changes this has brought to your life?
Has a traumatic loss of a loved one due to an acute natural death such as a stroke, COVID, or heart attack left you in shock, confused, or searching to make sense of what has happened?
Are you looking for support to navigate the complex emotions including guilt you may be experiencing due to a loss by suicide or homicide?
Are you grieving the loss of a service dog, companion animal or beloved pet?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, or are also feeling broken-hearted from a non-death loss, then you have made the right choice by being here. ON one hand you want to be here, on the other you do not. You are here because your world has shattered around you and you are looking for the pieces to rebuild your life. Whether a death has brought you here, or a job loss, loss of independence, or any other loss, you have found yourself here. Welcome. Grief has brought you to a place you never hoped you would be. The deep sadness that appears to never end. The questions of why and what next that seem to keep looping in your head. You are not alone. Many have grieved before you. Grief is an expression of how deeply we loved, and therefor that can make grief beautiful in its own way. It can be helpful to have a guide to walk with you on your grief journey. Guides can share your pain with you so you do not have to carry it alone. A guide can help you find hope when the darkness does not seem to lift. It may be difficult to make sense of much at this time. Grief is exhausting, and zaps our energy. It may feel as if you are walking through quicksand, mud, or that your legs are just too heavy to lift. While the way through may not be visible to you right now, there are many paths forward. Let’s work together to find yours.
"It doesn't matter who you are, or where you came from.
The ability to triumph begins with you. Always."
- Oprah Winfrey
You may be wondering how someone like myself and Manolo can help you feel good again. I have lived experience from a young age with grief both from anticipated and sudden losses. As someone who is blind, I also know another kind of grief that can occur when we navigate the world differently. Much like a service dog and handler have a reciprocal relationship and learn from each other, so too is my relationship with you. A relationship with a therapist involves mutual trust and teamwork to help you reach your goals. Many tools and strategies have helped me reach my potential, and Manolo is one of those. While he is a service dog first, he also loves to help others through their grief with kisses and tail wags. We look forward to working with you and being your grief guide. We invite you to contact us to begin your journey back to joy.
