Helping Parents Heal - Moving Forward After Suicide
Searching for answers this past February 2017, I was online considering going to a conference by Susanne Wilson. When I realized it was booked and I’d have to be placed on a waiting list, I said out loud to my son, “OK Sean, if I’m supposed to do this, get me into this conference”. Within 30 min, I received a phone call from the coordinator that there was a cancellation and I was in. Thus began my introduction to Helping Parents Heal. I was embraced that day by Elizabeth Boisson and Carol Allen and so touched by many others like Ernie, Kristine and Quinton, and of course by the love and healing touch of Susanne Wilson and her team including Camber Wilson.
I realized, though I was only 4+ months out, that these parents were grieving with hope and joy. It was genuine and true and though I wasn’t ready to put myself in that space, I knew that I had been lead to these people by my son for a reason. I followed up by attending Carol Allen’s group in Cave Creek shortly after and knew that this was going to be my lifeline. Signs and blessings have flooded my life as a result; too many to recount in this bio. The more that I receive, the stronger my connection to my son and spirit and to the bigger picture of Love and Light that I feel.
Since then, I have been blessed with a core group of parents in Flagstaff who face the same heartaches and are similarly motivated to not only honor their kids in this life but to help others to survive and find a purposeful way to continue living and loving. As I am feeling led to form this chapter in my own area, I couldn’t imagine doing it without these amazingly brave women who have agreed to be co co hosts on this venture.(Dana, Jessica, and Gina) We are strong and ready to share the Collateral Beauty that is this journey. We welcome all parents who have children on the other side. Please join our Facebook group hereSend An E-mail
Helping Parents Heal - Meditation Group
Allison and David Alison
Allison and David Alison are the parents of three amazing adult children: Jocelyn, Davey and Julia. Davey transitioned on July 20, 2016; he was involved in a solo car accident at the age of 24. This is documented along with their journey in David’s book Finding Davey (https://amzn.to/2oeBuxO). We felt Davey right away and knew he was not gone. We found out about HPH and it has helped us heal and connect with other patents. We enjoy talking about the signs we get from Davey and hearing about other parents’ experiences. Being a “Shining Light Parent” has helped us find meaning. Now with the HPH Meditation group, we would like to help others through positive energy and love with the help of our children on the other side.
The Zoom meetings are the third Wednesday of the month at 9:00 pm EST.

Helping Parents Heal - Parents of Children Who Passed of Addiction
My middle son, Ethan, at age 21, passed from an accidental lethal interaction of heroin and Xanax on February 11, 2011. It was just days after celebrating his daughter’s 1st Birthday on January 30th as well as living a healthy lifestyle for over 3 years. My husband, myself and his two brothers were in complete shock and devastated by his sudden passing.
I fell into HPH by pure coincidence, after attending a workshop in Prescott on April 2016 by Suzanne Giesemann and HPH was mentioned. On the last day of the workshop, Suzanne Giesemann delivered a message from my son. It was so comforting and healing to hear his message, to feel his love and to feel hope. Shortly after that time, I was asked to co-lead the Affiliate Chapter in Tucson. Over the past 3 years, co-facilitating this group has helped me in my journey through grief by serving other parents along the same path, by providing hope, comfort, support and validation.
I will always miss my son Ethan and I will speak his name daily. Through the pain of his passing I have grown spiritually, personally, as well as, professionally in helping other parents going through the passage of grief and loss.
The group meets Online on the last Monday of the month at 6 pm AZ time. Please contact Sandra for more information! Please join her Facebook page here.Send An E-mail
Helping Parents Heal - Parents of Children with Special Needs
I am the mom of two beautiful boys, both in spirit. Michael Angelo was born in 1988 and crossed in 2000 at the age of 12 from pneumonia. Michael was born very healthy, but had special needs due to having had a severe toxic reaction to his first DPT shot at the age of 4 weeks. Michael never spoke or walked, but taught me more about love than any other human possibly could have. He was as beautiful in life as he is in spirit, and being his mom remains to this day to be the greatest privilege I’ll ever have on this earth. Anthony is my other shining light, and I know he was born as a golden gift. Anthony was six when Michael crossed, and everything I lived for was in Anthony’s eyes. Anthony told me when he was two that he was waiting forever to be born so I could be his Mommy. Then, when he was four, he was crying. He said he was sad because he was going to leave me when he was 18. I thought he meant he was going to college. He was a freshman at Arizona State University when he transitioned from being poisoned by a synthetic drug at a party in 2013. During this dark night of my soul I was able to find my boys again in meditation, and have since learned that Spirit has chosen to use me through mediumship to prove that love never dies. My boys are at my side 24/7, and with this I’ve learned to live peacefully and joyfully having one foot on this earth plane serving Spirit and one foot in the spirit plane with them.
Lisa will hold her Zoom meetings from 5:30 - 8:30 pm AZ time on the second Monday of the month. Please join her Facebook group here.Send An E-mail
Helping Parents Heal - Osteosarcoma
Casey Crossan, Christian Robbins and Sunita Krishna
My name is Casey Crossan and I am Conner’s mom. My son, Conner, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) when he was 9 years old and in the 3rd grade. Cancer is relentless; every time you think you landed a winning punch, it comes back swinging harder and more persistent. Conner passed away April 5, 2018 at the age of 11. After Conner’s passing, I knew he was right there in front of me but I couldn’t see him through my grief. Helping Parents Heal helped me to see other parents were still connected to their children.
Hi, my name is Christiane Robbins, I am the mother of two beautiful children, Gabrielle and David. My son, David was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in April 2014 and fought this horrific disease for almost four years. After exhausting countless clinical trials and numerous alternative healing methods, David transitioned on November 30th, 2017 at the age of 18. I am comforted with the knowledge that David is now with his father who transitioned 12 years earlier and have received countless signs that both are still with us. My dear friend Sandi H. told me about HPH and even before attending the first annual HPH conference, several of the “souls sistah’s” reached out to me providing me with much-needed support. I would like to offer a space for healing as we share signs from our children, learn and teach one another how to become shining light parents.
Hi, my name is Sunita and I am a proud mother of twin boys, Dhruv and Arnav. Arnav was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma when he was 14 and battled the disease bravely for two and half years. He lost his battle with cancer in 2018 and transitioned at the age of 16. Helping Parents Heal has helped me go through one of the toughest situations of my life and now it is my turn to give back. I would like to help as many parents as I can through this tough journey.Send An E-mail
Helping Parents Heal - Connecting with our Loved Ones
Mary Bertun and Tava Wilson
I am an instructor and writer. My 19 year old son Chas took his life and passed on April 3, 2012. Deep grief, healing and spiritual growth are all part of my journey forward. Chas is always with me, and I hope to help other parents who have suffered the loss of a child. I have attended a Serving Spirit class with messenger of hope Suzanne Giesemann and continue to attend her webinars.
I believe that if we share our experiences, resources for healing such as Suzanne, and celebrate the life of our children, we will move onto pathways of light and love. I am honored to be starting a Helping Parents Heal chapter in Madison, Wisconsin and honored to be meeting other parents.
Hello! I am a Mental Health and School Guidance Counselor (currently not working in this field), and the mother of Nico, age 24, Christina, forever 17 (6/24/97-3/5/15), and Wilson, age 5. I was trained in grief and loss, and my professional career involved working almost exclusively with individuals struggling with the “loss” of loved ones. None of it prepared me for 3.5.15, when the person I most admire and with whom I was the closest, ‘moved’ to a different level of consciousness. I have no idea how I functioned those first months. My healing journey began when I read Wolf’s Message by Suzanne Giesemann, and subsequently spoke with her between May and August of 2015.
When Suzanne learned of Helping Parents Heal she told me about the group. To say that it has been a blessing would be an understatement. I can say today that I have experienced more joy and peace in the past 2 years than at any time prior to my daughter’s physical death. This is in large part due to the HPH family: meetings, online support, online meetings with experts in a multitude of healing modalities, the amazing conference, and new, special friendships. I still have rough patches, difficult days and I still miss the physical presence of my sweet peanut, but I am so blessed to have an ongoing relationship with her and feel so proud to be her mother. Helping Parents Heal is literally my heart. When I do things involving HPH, I feel joy. So, being a co-leader of the Madison affiliate group just makes my heart sing. I look forward to meeting many new Shining Light Parents. Our kids seem to bring just the right parents into my life at just the right time. They never cease to amaze me!!!

Helping Parents Heal - en Espagnol
Hi, I was born in Lima, Peru. I came to the US when I was 18. I live in Philadelphia, PA and I have been doing translations and interpretations for the past 25 years. I have worked in court and in medical offices doing simultaneous interpretations for special needs children and enjoy doing so. It is extremely important that the message get translated in the same exact manner in which it was spoken. Over the past 5 years, I have also worked in voice overs. I love being able to use my native language, Spanish, in various ways.
I am a single mom, divorced, and have 4 children, all boys: Franky (25), Cesar (22), JoseLuis (20) and Armando (14). 2 of my boys are in spirit; JoseLuis and Franky (In order of their transition)
After the transition of my 2 beautiful sons, I watched the documentary by Craig McMahon, ‘Life to Afterlife: Mom, Can You Hear Me?’ and all of the following ones and I became a member of Helping Parents Heal. I have met and I am still meeting many wonderful parents. This is now my new family and I am so very grateful. Helping Parents Heal saved my life after the transition of my two boys.

Tuesday Chat with Irene and Kathy
Irene Vouvalides and Kathy MacGinnis
Please join Irene & Kathy for a chat room every Tuesday afternoon, 2 pm AZ/PT and 5 pm EST.
I lost my best friend, my only child, my beautiful 24 year old daughter Carly Elizabeth Hughes to esophageal-gastric cancer on February 17th, 2013. Like so many of us who have experienced this devastating loss my daughter’s passing sent me on a spiritual quest. I have found friends and comfort through this remarkable group Helping Parents Heal. In the short time since Carly’s passing I have had definite proof that consciousness survives physical death, that Carly is well, and with me always. I have been fortunate to speak with mediums who were able to provide absolute evidence of the afterlife, indisputable information relayed bringing comfort and helping to lighten the heavy weight of grief. With family and Carly’s friends we have created a foundation in her honor- Carly’s Kids A Foundation For Education, I hope you will take the time to read about us and what we are doing in Carly’s memory.

We all wear many hats and carry many titles. I’ve worn many, but Mother has been the one that brought the most profound joy I could have ever imagined. My husband, Andy, a retired Marine and I have been blessed with 3 beautiful and very active boys, Conor, Jack and Aiden. We have been fortunate to travel the world and live in many different places. I was always very aware and appreciative of the beautiful life I was living. My life, came crashing down in March of 2013. Aiden, my youngest son, died by suicide at the age of 15. Eight months later, just as I felt that I was learning to breathe again Conor, my oldest son, died in an accidental fall while away at college at the age of 20. This culminated in not only the deepest grief and pain a mother can experience, but also an extraordinary journey of awakening and enlightenment that came in the surprising form of signs, messages and real time communication. All of this has led me to know that our loved ones are still very present. I am not waiting to get to Heaven to continue a relationship with my boys. They let me know often that they are by my side and together we have much work to do! I have found Heaven in my Heart….

Helping Fathers Heal
Our son and only child, Dylan, passed from a heroin overdose on November 28, 2016, just after his 24th birthday and just before receiving a chip to celebrate six months of continuous sobriety. My wife, Allyson, and I were devastated and really struggled to release the new hope we had from the enormous progress Dylan had made. We attended various grief meetings and two things always stood out – the meetings weren’t designed to help parents continue to live when they came out of “the fog” and very few fathers ever participated. So we turned to an evidential medium to hopefully find some answers and that reading put us on a path to attend the 2018 Helping Parents Heal Conference. The conference provided even more validation and a venue to share with other parents who were searching for answers. For the first time, we left a meeting feeling lighter and more hopeful than when we arrived.
We will always remember and miss Dylan but now understand that we’re living and learning what is meant for us. I’ve decided to help other parents, and particularly fathers, learn how to have good lives after their loss and come to know their own “truth” which will certainly help me to do the same.
The meetings are held
Zoom meetings are held online every other Wednesday, 7-8:30 PM (CST) for dads to share experiences and provide support for one another. Please contact Mike Edwards at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Helping Siblings Heal
Kailee Savoie, Cody Brooks and Anna Buckmaster
Kailee Savoie, Hawaii
Kailee is a shining light sibling, sister of Garrett, living in Scottsdale, Arizona. She is a Mind Body Wellness Practitioner specializing in Yoga (she really loves teaching Kids & Family Yoga), Holistic Nutrition, Clinical Aromatherapy, and is a Reiki Master. You can usually find her hiking (when the weather is nice), reading, collecting crystals, and spending time with her "soul" family she has met through Helping Parents Heal and Helping Siblings Heal.
Cody Brooks, Cleveland, OH
Cody Brooks lives in Cleveland area, Ohio. His brother Quin Hardon, passed away on January 24, 2017. Cody has grieved and has hurt, and has been working on healing, and it is no easy task. But can be done. It is a constant work in progress. There is no straight line in the loss of a loved one. He has good days, and he has heart-wrenching days. But nonetheless, he knows Quin is with him and his family, working with others who have passed over. And just like they are working together, helping us, we are also in this together. Cody couldn’t be more proud of those who helped him grow, and he hopes that he may help others grow along the way. If there is one thing he has learned in all of this, it is that we are not meant to do this alone.
Anna Buckmaster, London, UK
Anna is an actress born in Surrey, UK. Her brother and only sibling Pete passed in 2014 in a car accident. Being left as an only sibling, she realized there were no support systems or communities, specifically for bereaved brothers and sisters, and struggled to find people in similar situations to confide in. After her parents joined Helping Parents Heal and gained a great deal of comfort in the community, she felt compelled to create a sibling branch of the group to allow a space for people to connect and talk openly about their experiences. She hopes that this group, as the first of its kind, will provide hope and comfort to those who are told to stay strong for others and often struggle alone.

Shiome Healing Circle
Shifting in the “Magic Circle” is an involved protocol I developed over 30 years of studying with different healers. It's a therapeutic transformational process where we shift our energy to a higher vibration by releasing a disturbing memory/feeling and transforming the energy to a beautiful peaceful feeling/vision. It's part of what I do in my professional individual sessions.
I'll facilitate and guide the process with a surrogate volunteer from the group who helps me "test" the group, with everyone’s permission. We're all connected, and we all help each other. I'll share a new science-based "Flash Technique” first, then move into energy psychology (EP) and desensitization and reprocessing when needed. When appropriate, we'll shift the disturbance together in our "Magic Circle" or Medicine Wheel over the ocean, through all the elements. Everyone will receive the gift of a positive installation through a technique of brain balancing from EP.
Be prepared to work a bit, and please come with a strong positive engaging focus - a happy thought and feeling - whether a song, a memory, something powerfully uplifting to focus on. Also bring that disturbing memory you'd like to desensitize. We'll put it in a sacred container for you to keep and shift during the process. We honor all memories, and although the Truth never changes, the disturbing feelings can be changed to bring peace.
If someone needs assistance after our Healing Circle, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com, gratis. Much love and peace to you, Judith
