Grief and Bereavement Support

Grief support, consulting and education

Dr. Kriss Kevorkian has a deep understanding of how we should engage in the grieving process.

~ Dr. Barbara Spring, Co-Founder with Dr. Ira Byock of the Missoula Demonstration Project featured in the PBS special with Bill Moyers, On our Own Terms: Moyers on Dying

I provide emotional support and consulting, what some might refer to as coaching, counseling or services provided by a death doula, to people dealing with grief and those at the end-of-life. I offer similar services while having had extensive experience as a hospice medical social worker, offering emotional support and counseling to patients and their families, assisting with advance directives, and before and after death care. I am one of a handful of people in the US with a doctoral degree in thanatology, the study/science of death, dying and grief. I work with individuals and groups of all ages and backgrounds.

I’m here to compassionately support, empower, and nurture you as you grow through grief.

I refer to an appointment, or session, as a Mourning Meeting.                                  

Grief is the normal reaction to loss, and it is unique to each and every person

There is no one size fits all help for grief

Grief is an aspect of life. Not only does it impact us after the loss of a loved one, but it’s everywhere today as we do our best to keep up with an ever changing world. So many of us are grieving a life we once knew while trying to stay afloat and find meaning in what many refer to as the new normal.

How do you cope with grief?

Grief can be a very lonely time as we do our best to navigate it all. We learn how to cope with grief and loss from those around us, and as we age, which is why I often say we grow through grief because we’re going to find ourselves on this path no matter how challenging it might be. The question is, do you want to go through this on your own, or have an experienced guide to help you through the journey of your unique grieving process?

I’m here to help!

Grief Support Group

I offer support groups for those who are concerned about our climate and who might be dealing with some of the emotional challenges including environmental grief, ecological grief and eco-anxiety. If you are interested in participating in a remote support group, please contact me.

Kriss has a magnificent manner in being able to ground and calm you during these chaotic and overly stressed times. I walked away from the first session refreshed, calmer, and more focused after her intimate, yet energetic guided imagery. Thank you Kriss for your compassion and empathy. ~ Gwen C., Climate Reality Leader
