Grief and the mess that is left behind

As if losing someone you love isn’t bad enough, how do you handle the grief and the stress that is created when your loved one leaves a mess behind? This can be a literal mess of clutter and collections and cleaning out the deceased’s property or the mess of taking care of unfinished business of life, insurance, bills, and legalities.

Many people become overwhelmed, and it can create stress, illness, and breakdown in relationships.

What do you do when you just want to be sad and process your grief, and you can’t even get to it until the mess is cleaned up?

You call on Rachel Donnelly. After many experiences with loss, including the death of her parents at a young age, Rachel founded Black Dress Consultants, a consulting firm that helps individuals and families manage the unavoidable tasks and logistics of after loss and end-of-life.

Rachel strategically manages the unavoidable tasks of after loss and end- of-life so that individuals and families can stop wondering what they should be doing and get back to the things that matter.
