Laura Jack. OH EM GEE. I do not even have the words to express to you how much working with Laura has helped me over the last two years, but I'll give it a shot.
Laura is a grief recovery specialist and if you're thinking to yourself, "well what I am going through isn't grief..." you might be surprised at how wrong you may be. As I learned with working with her, grief is about SO much more than just death. Laura taught me that grief is the conflicting feelings that come at the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior. So as it would seem, you, right now are grieving the loss of the life you had before and entering into a scary unknown. Laura will not "fix" you. She will not make all of your hurt go away. She will not make you forget the life you've known before your loss. Instead, what she will do is give you the tools on how to deal with all of this new craziness that will become your new normal. She will encourage you to express what you're feeling and going through. She will give you a metaphoric tool belt that you'll fill with tools that will help you learn to navigate all of this newness and how to tell people how to deal with you. This process isn't going to be easy, but I'm confident with Laura's help and guidance, you will come out on top.- Abbey Corbett, Austin, TX
