After navigating over a decade in the healthcare industry, personal grief and the observation of several gaps within our healthcare system has fueled the Grief Love mission. As a Nurse practitioner, educator, mentor, philanthropist, and Life/Grief Coach, I have a true passion for mental health advocacy and guiding individuals into healing. I, Portia Effinger, am here to normalize grief conversations for the love of grief. Grief has the power to manifest in several different forms affecting us spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I'm convinced it is important to gain a deeper understanding of oneself holistically in order to heal meaningfully, and this journey begins within. Click below to read more about my why.
Do you feel as if no one else understands what it is that you are going through after your significant loss? Finding it difficult to move forward, navigating life without that special loved one? That big move, break -up, divorce, fear of losing a special someone, or fear of moving forward after that new diagnosis, are all different classifications of grief. Whether it’s individual or group session approaches you’re searching for, let’s find out if grief coaching is a good fit for you.
Truth is, life experiences teach us much, but it’s typically those significant losses that mold us into who we are today. Grief, what is it really? And how does it impact us? Is it all about tears and fears? Death and loss? How do I know I’m grieving? These are common questions of uncertainty. We here at Grief Love believe normalizing conversations begins with Grief Awareness 365 and proper education. Click below to hear more about our grief education services.
