Brittany Squillace: Exploring grief // Ep. #9
Show Notes

Meet my friend, Brittany, who is a mental health therapist and founder of Best Self Therapy. Her mission is to instill hope in grieving adults to change the way they view, talk about, and navigate grief. Through her specialty of grief and loss, Brittany guides clients in making meaning of their losses and redefine and maintain their relationship(s) with the deceased.

Brittany’s grief specialization also includes guiding clients in healing ambiguous / living losses (such as the losses experienced through divorce, loss of identity, grieving a loved one who is still physically present but emotionally / mentally absent, loss of job, etc.)

Brittany values creating a safe and welcoming space, allowing clients to discover how to continue living as their best selves while remembering, honoring, and staying connected to those who have passed. 

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Why Brittany chose grief as a therapeutic focus.
  • The two common types of loss (they're not what you'd think).
  • When it's the best time to seek out a grief therapist.
  • How and where to start the journey if you're grieving.
  • One of the most common myths of the grief journey.
  • How to support and love someone navigating loss. (And, what to say and do so you don't dismiss or invalidate their journey!)
  • How to create a safe space for those grieving without taking on the emotion and energy as your own.
  • How to hold therapeutic silence and great questions to ask in the grief space.
  • Grounding when you're triggered as a space holder.
  • Shifting the narrative around grief.
