The pain of suicide loss is indescribable. It seems beyond survival. Yet with faith, perseverance, and the tools of brain science, there is a way through. It will take time. It will take struggle.

Our guest is a suicide loss survivor herself and she understands the pain you’re feeling because she has been there too. She is an experienced therapist and expert in traumatic loss who will join us to offer a science-based therapy model that also takes into account the role of human spirituality.
