​Are you suffering from a heartbreaking loss? In your grief are you experiencing yearning, longing, disbelief, extreme sadness, confusion, numbness, overwhelm, exhaustion, insomnia, anger, inability to focus, agitation, or anxiety? Do you feel you have lost a part of yourself?

Every journey starts with a first step. Often, this step is the most difficult one. I am proud of you for being here. I am Marilyn Willis, and I took my first step when I was fifteen years old. After my mother died, I struggled to find my way through grief. 

I found restoration after many years. Like a beat-up piece of furniture that has been refurbished, my foundation is still the same, but my body, mind, and spirit have been renewed and restored. Through that process, I developed a passion for helping others find their way through the darkness of grief to the light that is waiting beyond their loss.

After working with hundreds of grieving clients over the course of twenty years, I developed a proven step by step process to help you navigate through a heartbreaking loss to the restoration of your life. Please be encouraged that it is possible to restore your life after such a loss.

Together we will explore the restoration of your physical functioning, mental clarity, emotional stability, interest in people and activities, and purpose for your future. Are you ready to take your first step toward restoration? Click the "Get Help" button to allow me to walk alongside you.
