The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations
Dr. Lenore Matthew; Melding Science & Spirit in Healing after Suicide Loss
Show Notes

Life after the suicide loss of a loved one- there is so much we could say about the SCIENCE of it. There is so much that we could say about the SPIRIT side of it all. BUT... can they overlap? Do they? Today I have a conversation with someone who feels like an old friend. She definitely is a friend (she is NOT old) but we are indeed new friends in the sense that we have only known each other a few years yet, the 'old friend' feeling comes from the deep connection we share where our souls have collided. Trust me - she is phenomenal! Dr. Lenore (Lenny to most) shares with us how she became a young widow with the loss of her beloved husband Bruno by suicide and how this has transformed her, her beliefs, and her life's purpose.                 

Today, you will hear Lenore and I talk about 

  • Her story as a young widow and the past few years
  • Post-Traumatic Growth (over PTSD)
  • Melding Science & Spirit 
  • What are medium vs psychic readings
  • How often can/should we have readings? 
  • How to find a medium … and SO. MUCH. MORE.

A bit more about Dr. Lenore Matthew in her own words  --
Lenore Matthew, Ph.D., MSW is a Doctor of Social Work and a trauma and grief specialist, as well as a psychic medium and intuitive healer.

Today, she blends her scientific background with her intuitive abilities, to help others heal through trauma and grief.
