Patricia A. DeJohn

Bereavement and Aftercare Specialist

Patty New 1 newWe believe it is especially important to assist families in dealing with their grief. As a grief and bereavement educator, Patty is an important part of that process. As a grief therapist she has taught courses on death and dying at Ursuline College and has facilitated grief support groups since 1989.

She graduated with a degree in Psychology from Ursuline College and received her Masters Degree in  Clinical Counseling from John Carroll University.  She was in private practice for 15 years with Dr. Thomas Frazier, Ph.D. and currently she sees clients at the Chesterland and Willoughby Hills facilities where she serves as a Wellness Life Coach.  She is also a Reiki Master and has given treatments for the past 18 years.

In addition to her Bereavement work at the funeral home, Patty shares her expertise with the community where she has given workshops and lectures for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, Hospice of the Western Reserve and many local churches and community organizations. Patty is a member of the Association for Death Education & Counseling.
