DIY Wine Tasting


Wedding planning has been a little stressful at times but it's also been a lot fun!! I think one of the funnest things we've done so far was a Wine Tasting Night!!

The Power of Reflection and Silence

As we begin to talk about grief I want to emphasize one thing...never underestimate the power of reflection and the power of silence. As counselors we're taught a hundred different techniques...we're trained in special theories and we feel like to be the best counselor we have to use these higher level techniques.

Grief...is very different though. Whenever people talk about death/grief you frequently hear people say "well I don't know what to say to them??"  The reality is nothing you say is going to make it better...there is no magical statement. Stop looking for one...it doesn't exist!!  So what do you do?? How do you comfort a friend struggling with the loss of a child?? How do you comfort your spouse dealing with the loss of a parent?? How do you counsel clients who are grieving the loss of a loved one??

The answer...you listen, you reflect, and you remain silent.
