Our  Staff

Our Center brings together dedicated people who work tirelessly to help fulfill the mission of the Center. Each individual comes from varied experiences in human service and education, and possesses specialized training and interest in Thanatology, which is the foundation of our work.

We are incredibly proud of having such exceptional and passionate people driving our mission, and are dedicated as an organization of value to support them in providing the highest quality of service to those seeking help from the Center.  The Center for Loss and Bereavement is an inspiring place to be, where it is safe – and encouraged – to be vulnerable with dignity, and to invite others to be a source of light and hope in times of darkness.  Our staff are capable of holding the pain of others, without needing or trying to ‘fix’ someone’s journey through the true mess of grief.  Our mission depends on having empathetic, experienced individuals doing such intimate and sensitive work, and we are incredibly grateful for the staff who have joined us over the years.
