Grace from Grief Counseling provides Spiritual and Grief Counseling, as well as counseling for relationships and life transitions. Creating healthy boundaries, learning communication skills, and finding your own inner light compass can lead you to living an authentic and purpose-driven life, no matter what. Examining your own philosophies and beliefs deepens your understanding of your true self. Addressing any challenges, issues, or wounds that you have, and being willing to look at the shadow parts of yourself, can be extremely freeing, allowing you create a life you never dreamed of!
Grief and loss can stem from a variety of experiences, such as illness or death; loss of self; loss of innocence, given or taken; losses of career, health, or home; or loss of relationships. Our focus is on helping individuals identify the source of their grief and loss, as grief can be cumulative, and encouraging them to express their emotions, identify the source of any pain, heal, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a safe space, listening, offering guidance, empowering hope, and cultivating spiritual and self awareness. Barriers, obstacles, and stigmas in each life story can be identified, and through compassion and self love, acceptance and peace can occur, possibly even preventing further suffering.
Grace from Grief commits to be there for you on every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you identify, express, and feel your feelings, allowing and supporting you to grieve and mourn. You will be assisted in recognizing the gifts in your life experiences, guided to grow from your struggles, encouraged to heal from your pain and sorrow, and supported as you move forward in life in the best direction for you.

Grief and loss may evoke some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we will experience at some point in our lives. Depending on the loss, grief can feel different for different people. It can feel as if a tsunami struck your heart, or perhaps a crashing of ocean waves, and yet for others their grief can feel more like that of a gentle rain. Whatever you feel, you feel. Just as we each love in our own way, we grieve in our way. Through individual and/or group support, we are able to help you identify, express, and feel your feelings around grief and loss. Grief can be cumulative as there is no expiration date on grief. As you move through your grief and loss, you find a new perspective, a new normal, experience joy and peace as you move towards acceptance.
Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger following traumatic events. We help you work through these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. As a Transpersonal Counselor, I whole-heartedly embrace and live this quote by Pema Chodron: "Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well, can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity."
Spiritual counseling is beneficial to people who are open and/or willing to discover or deepen their spirituality. Clients are shown how experiences, even in the depths of deep darkness, can lead them to spirituality, connecting or reconnecting with their own innate "inner light compass" irregardless of religious or spiritual belief system(s) or philosophies. Issues are addressed, such as addiction, grief, self-destructive behaviors and patterns, and trauma, which may have prevented you from living and experiencing self-actualization and transcendence in a purpose-driven life. As a proponent of synchronicity, let me say "if you are waiting for a sign this is it!"

Spiritual Counseling for groups and individuals are provided, as well as support for clients addressing and experiencing grief, pain, trauma and/or loss, with an emphasis on spiritual connection or re-connection.
Corinne believes that life lessons and challenges can be transformed into gifts and opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, that grief can be transformed into grace, and that wounds may be transformed into wisdom.
Snow, like grief, has an energy all its own. The snow fall in Las Vegas (February 2019) brought out laughter and an inner child in me as it did for many others. As a native Nebraskan I said, "Ooh it feels like Christmas!"
It also felt like Christmas when I reached a level of acceptance, unimaginable to me after the unexpected and traumatic deaths of my daughter and granddaughter. I faced the darkest nights of my soul. My heart is now healed and mended, filled with compassion, love, and hope. Determination, personal recovery, optimism, resiliency, tenacity, lots of love and prayers, along with plain old stubbornness (as I did not to want to die from grief) allowed healing, growth, and a peace that surpasses all understanding.
When you are ready and/or willing, I will walk with you, as far and as long as you will allow.
"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."
