IN LIFE WE ALL ENCOUNTER LOSS.

 

GRIEF CALLS UPON THE HIDDEN RESOURCES ALREADY INSIDE OF US

WE CAN LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES

You can find joy again.
ENHANCE YOURSELF WITH GRIEF COUNSELING

I specialize in strength based support for loss and life transitions, with the goal of helping you see the forest from the trees and live a more centered life. Think of it as a kind of life coaching through grief and loss.

 

Would you like to access more strength, peace, and equilibrium 

during this period of transition?

Would you like to find a way to connect with life, and even grow, amidst your loss?

About

Leslie Hunt Palumbo, LSCW

I am a psychotherapist, grief counselor, and author with over 30 years experience helping people move through loss feeling more empowered. Together, we work to help you stay connected with your true center during turmoil in order to live your best, most connected life. It is my ultimate goal to help people open their awareness to the peace available in every moment, even the most painful ones. I offer workshops, coaching/support groups, and strength based grief counseling. In addition to my traditional clinical training as an LCSW, I have trained in meditation retreat with Pema Chodron and Eckhart Tolle, and I always bring an element of mindfulness into the work. 

 

A special focus is working with the bereaved, both as a gentle guide for families through the hospice experience, and as a facilitator, helping people access the beauty available even in the midst of great loss. I have experienced, and teach, that grief is a sacred process that, while accompanied by deep pain, also provides an opportunity for each of us to expand into a greater version of ourselves. I am currently leading retreats, group & individual teachings on the Gifts of Grief. Check the calendar for my upcoming 2022-2023 Wisdom of Grief Workshops and explore my book, The Wisdom of Grief: Mining the Treasure Inherent in Great Loss, and stay tuned for new blog posts, articles, videos and podcasts.

 

An energy worker and Reiki Master of the Usui lineage, I facilitated Reiki offerings as part of the Integrative Medicine department at Yale’s Smilow Cancer Hospital. In my Reiki practice, I use training and intuition to help clients with physical and emotional blocks in the body, bringing healing with an added level of peace.

The Wisdom of Grief_edited.jpg
The Wisdom of Grief is a spiritual self-help book for the bereaved about how to recognize and maximize the opportunities for transformation in this universal human experience. Gripping, honest, and inspirational, it offers knowledge and specific contemplations to help grievers move fluidly through this often painful but potentially life expanding experience. Part memoir of complicated grief, part professional perspective on grieving, part guidebook through the transcendental journey of grief, the Wisdom of Grief is a map, guiding us gently to a place beyond fear, where an immense treasure lies, waiting to be unearthed.
