One of the 40 or more known instances that would trigger grief is sexual abuse. Sexual trauma of any kind is a loss that can cause a grieving experience, and the #metoo movement can trigger a lot of that unresolved trauma.
I host a radio show called “The Grief Recovery Hour with Sharon Brubaker,” on KHTS and I was recently joined in studio by Sandi Atmore, Life Coach & Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. On the show we talk with a client Nicole, who shares her history and experience with grief recovery when it comes to her history with sexual trauma.
We hear many many clients say: “I didn’t realize this affected me so much.” The entire experience is so traumatizing, and not being believed is a whole other loss.
“One thing that I have been experiencing with grief recovery, is how powerful and rewarding it can be for you to be there for yourself. For you to speak up for yourself and voice what happened to you,” said Nicole.

When it comes to talking about, grieving and recovering from grief, what doesn’t come out, stays in. I am a survivor of sexual assault myself, and I can help you fully recover from the experience. To learn more, watch the video interview.
I guide people through a crazy or down time in their life, and I am truly honored to walk through the journey of grief recovery with my clients. At A time to grief, I work with clients to help them understand that unresolved grief is almost always associated with wishing things were better, different or more and that it can have to do with any unfulfilled hopes, dreams and expectations.
I am not only a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist—I am a griever. I teach in my program that grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind. Yet, we were never taught how to grieve. Sadly, most of the information we are given immediately following a loss from family or friends is incorrect. It does little or nothing to help us feel better or to begin the healing process. So, we continue to search and search.
Reach out to me today for help, and we can walk through this together.
