The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations
Opening to the Presence of Your Pain; Marianne Gouveia of EricsHouse
Show Notes

Life after suicide loss - in the case of today's guest, child loss after suicide - requires learning to be open to the presence of your pain, at least if you want to begin down the path of healing. But, what does that mean?  Marianne Gouveia of the no-profit EricsHouse and I explore this and so much more in this episode.

Today, you will hear Marianne and I talk about 

  • How we work through our 'grief bursts' 
  • What is "Catholic Fear" and how to move past it
  • How the healing can begin after the shock, numbness & isolation...and then continue from there
  • Grief inside a marriage ... and So much more! 
  • Eric's House and its vision "...that no person who is bereaved by suicide or substance abuse will suffer these devastating losses alone."

You can find Marianne and ALL of the wonderful work being done through EricsHouse--->


A bit more about Marianne and Eric's House  --
Marianne spent 35 years as an aerospace and defense executive. She was President and Vice President along with various other capacities with a concentration on international business development and program management. She owned and operated an international aerospace company for more than 10 years.

Marianne left corporate America to pursue a business coaching certification through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). After the loss of her youngest son, Marianne chose to turn her tragedy into good for others. She founded EricsHouse in 2017 to help those left behind sort through these devastating losses to integrate their grief so they may find joy and happiness again. EricsHouse helps people rise, survive, and thrive even in the face of devastation.

Outside of her corporate life, she experienced several life transitions encompassing career, business, loss of a sibling, loss of a child, loss of parents, a divorce, a Down Syndrome son, and a Down Syndrome sister.
