Barb Segura, LPC creates a sacred space for healing and transformation. Grief is often unacknowledged in our fast paced, youth-oriented culture. The grief journey is an individual journey, as unique as fingerprints. If tended to, grief can guide our healing and enrich our lives. She provides grief education, consultation, coaching and facilitates support groups. Some support groups are offered specifically for the Jewish mourner.
