“Being kind is more important than being right. Most times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks; rather, they need a patient heart that listens.” — Dr. Yvonne Kaye

Introducing “How the Hell Did I Get Here from There?!”

Bereavement Specialist

She is known nationally and internationally for her work in bereavement, especially working with families who have lost children to death. They inspire her. Yvonne was gifted with the ability to listen and therefore she is a perpetual student of human beings, their courage, resilience, humor when nothing seems funny and when it is. What she will offer is an open mind, an honest interaction and the wisdom of being a lecturer, professor, therapist, thanatologist, and addictionist for many years.

Curl up in a comfy chair, grab a cup of tea and treat yourself to her story telling, observations, lessons, and the occasional naughty word.
