Pamela Larkin and Treshana Lewis are both mental health therapists at Optimum Joy.  Along with our founder and host, Alexandra Hoerr, Pamela introduces different types of grief, concrete vs. symbolic, and Treshana gives insight on the stages of grief not being linear. Considering life in general, but especially because of 2020, grief is an ever important topic of conversation. They end with a few practical things you can do to implement grieving into your life.
