Her insight into grief and the healing process reframed our sorrow and created the potential for transformation. We were blessed by her presence and deeply grateful for her passion and energy." — Dawn McGahan, LCSW, American Foundation of Suicide Prevention
“Known to us as our 'grief and loss’ expert, Ms. Kennedy has supported and inspired our students to understand and work with their own grief and loss, support and counsel others in their grief, and write deeply and extensively on the topic for their final integrative papers and projects. Her evaluations from students were strong, with students thanking her for her professional skills, generosity of spirit and her strong abilities in the classroom. Strong, fair, heartfelt, dedicated and an expert on her topic, Ms. Kennedy is an asset to the communities she serves in her various capacities. Grief and loss are difficult yet necessary parts of the human experience, it takes a deft hand to both provide these services and to teach others to do so. Ms. Kennedy does all that and more, with sensitivity and grace. I am honored to have included her on our academic roster and highly recommend her as professor, lecturer, contributor and practitioner. She is a gift." — Doreen Maller, LMFT, PhD, Retired Chair Holistic Counseling Psychology, John F Kennedy University
