I’m so sorry for your loss but I’m glad that you’ve found your way here.
"Early" grief. It’s a time unlike any other. When the normal rules of life just don’t apply.
And love, by "early" I mean the days, months, or years when your grief feels raw, fresh, and when the waves roll in relentlessly. We are all on our own timeline.
I remember when my partner Brian first died, I couldn’t even breathe. I was cracked open, guts spilled out on the floor, and it felt like everyone was watching. But also, like they were purposefully looking away.
I was lonely but all I wanted was to be alone.
I felt like my loss was the only loss that had ever existed.
I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t read, couldn’t think.
I wanted to scream at everyone.
I remember walking down the street and not understanding how it was possible that the world was still turning. How people were still walking around, unaware that my life was forever altered.
I felt like I couldn’t even get to the next moment, let alone the next day.
I had lost everything. I didn’t even know who I was. I wasn’t even sure if the experiences I had with him were real, because he was no longer here to remember them with me.
My body was in complete shock. I couldn’t do any of the things I had previously done to help myself feel better.
I’m here to tell you that if you feel like this too, you are not alone. And you will not feel this way forever.
There is nothing wrong with you.
This is traumatic grief.
It is devastating.
And yes, unfortunately, people who haven’t been through it just don’t understand.
But I do.
And it’s not just me, there are so many of us.

Your Survival Kit for Early Grief, Raw Grief, + Ongoing Grief Waves
I created this simple, gentle, pre-recorded 60-minute mini-course + bonus somatic lesson for you - the "new" griever, the one who's grief feels raw, and for anyone who experiences ongoing grief waves that knock you off your feet. It is a safe space for you to land during this unbearable time. Here you’ll find clear strategies and ideas for ways to get through the raw, tender days of your grief journey from someone who has been where you are now. Watch and re-watch at your own pace. When you purchase this course, you’ll also have access to the accompanying handouts and worksheets.
This program is open to grievers who have experienced any type of loss.
My definition of "early" grief is not based on time (could be months or years) but rather, the days when your grief feels raw + fresh and the waves knock you down relentlessly. This course could also be helpful for those further along, to be used during "grief bursts" or waves.
