As a therapist, Judith can utilize all or any of the below tools for her clients. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment if you are going through a loss and believe keepsakes will help in your healing process. You must be willing to come to Maryland at this time. Loss has many stages; one stage is acceptance and often wanting to preserve your loved one's memories, legacy. As a therapist, I am very honored to help preserve memories, legacy of your loved one. The bookmarks are laminated, and books can be kept in the family throughout the generations. There is no conflict of interest with having more than one therapist as well other than often you cannot schedule services on the same day.
Memorial Keepsakes started in 2014 with a button with a man's face and words "a beautiful soul will never be forgotten" which was requested by individual's significant other. Since February 2021, buttons, bookmarks, and cards for loss have been shared. There is no cost, but donations accepted to continue. To Share Hope through Art during times of grief is very important because loss is very difficult. Personally, my mental health was negatively affected by loss in my own personal life so an outreach that is very important to me personally.
More Examples. I don't use personalized examples online. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in designing a memorial bookmark, card, button. Donations greatly appreciated once you have received it.
I hope to create Memorial Keepsakes with people in hospice, those in end stage cancer, or those who simply want to let their loved one knows how much they love them. I like adding poems, songs, etc. I would be honored to design mass/ funeral/ celebration of life programs. There are other options for memorial keepsakes including painting memorial rocks, art, etc.

Narrative Therapy in Books- sharing loved one's story, life lessons, favorite recipe, memories, pictures of them &/or their art/ places they lived, etc to remember them. This could be enough pages to print via current printers lulu.com (included link if you feel competent to create a Word Document and do your own) or a document you can print, write on, a different unique format such as a Scrapbook or a Life Book.
Public Books- Remembering their Legacy, creating a chapter for Remembering their Legacy series, could be on one person if content enough, series is based on submissions and title can be the name of the person.
Keepsake Books- personalizing books (no public access) to support a variety of groups grieving a loss. This can be family, friends, fire fighters, police officers, sports teams, religious organizations, schools, goodwill organizations (Lions Clubs), businesses, non-profits, etc. This can be having multiple people email a therapist or designated point of contact stories, words of wisdom learned, things they remember that can be compiled into a book. Often in families and other settings the loss that one may have drawn them to services, they realize more losses, so this project can include honoring more than one person. Often when you lose a parent, significant other, you remember your grandparents or one fire fighter, you remember another loss years prior, etc. This is a personal project and personalized to client.
