Rashida Sanchez currently works with Calvary Hospital in the role of bereavement counselor. She facilitates bereavement groups for children, teens and adults who are processing a variety of deaths. Rashida earned her degree in Thanatology and is a certified Fellow of Thanatology through the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC). Recently she had a chance to present at ADEC’s 2019 National Conference under the subject of Grief through the Immigrant Lens: The Duality of Secondary Losses. She is not only passionate about working with her clients but also interested in how bereavement and grief can be viewed through the lens of social justice. She looks forward to a continuing contribution to the field of death and dying, exploring topics that aid in the understanding of grief in children and adolescents, immigrant populations, and faith communities.
