I have experienced grief often and early in my life. In fact, in my early 20’s I had been present with four beloved family members as they transitioned from life to death. The transitions caused me to pause and not only take a look at how I was living, but how I was loving. In fact, after my husband of 9 years passed away, I transitioned from a Business Degree and working in retail, to Counseling Psychology and later founded “New Mourning” in 2004. A lot has happened since those early days, but one thing remains the same. Many of us are ill prepared for losses, even those that occur through healthy life transitions like graduating high school, starting a family, or starting a new job.
