I am a Clinical Social Worker and Board Certified Life Coach, and recently attended the Grief Recovery Method training in Des Moines, facilitated by Laura. I expected that this was just another training, and in all likelihood, covering information I already knew. I couldn't have been more wrong. I was quite excited with GRI's approach to grief counseling/coaching and have already started applying the model with my clients. But what really made this training extraordinary was Laura's dynamic, engaging and compassionate presence as she skillfully glided through the material and guided each and every one of us on our own personal grief recovery journeys. I have never attended a training where the members (admittedly a small group) became very close, very much like a family, allowing for a safe environment to do our work.  As a Clinician and Life Coach myself, I recognize Laura's natural ability to join with people to help them on their educational, professional and personal life paths.  Thank you Laura for an unforgettable, life transforming experience!!!
