Hi, I’m Yolanda Mitchum.
As a child, I was bullied and suicidal, but no one knew it.
I appeared to be happy, yet inside I felt ALONE, BROKEN and INADEQUATE.
Although my hidden childhood insecurities rolled into adulthood, I became a very successful registered nurse, obtained a master’s in business administration, and climbed the corporate ladder leading teams, where the sky was the limit.
But none of that mattered when my life came to a HARD STOP and my HEALTH took a DOWNWARD turn in 2020.
That was the year my husband and I lost our unborn child and Amaria, our then 18-year-old daughter, unexpectedly died.
While I’ve had many losses along the way, that was the final loss I could take.
I knew I needed something in addition to the “usual” professional counseling, religious guidance, family/friend support and medical care I was already receiving.
I will be forever grateful for a mother who reached out to a stranger, me–another mother in pain, to offer genuine support through social media and recommended The Grief Recovery Method (GRM).
I found the GRM instrumental in my personal healing from early childhood losses, adult losses, and the most devastating loss – the unexpected death of my daughter.
The tools I learned and applied from this program have completely changed my life, helped me be a present mother for my living children, empowered me to live again and SMILE for real.
I now am an Advanced Grief Recovery Method Specialist helping those struggling with loss move forward and teaching parents how to help their children with loss.
