Friday’s show is one of healing and transformation. If you have ever been faced with adversity, trauma or loss, you won’t want to miss this.
Dr. Kiley Krekorian Hanish, OTD, OTR/L is a bereaved mother and occupational therapist living in Los Angeles. She specializes in the transformative aspects of grief, specifically how storytelling, meaningful activities, experiences, mindfulness and the environment contribute to healing after loss.
Kiley understands from personal experience how grief can transform one’s life: Ten years ago, she and her husband Sean, tragically lost heir son Norbert, who was stillborn. Together, they created the Emmy-nominated film Return to Zero based on their life story, starring Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein.
Through “Return to Zero,” Kiley has found much healing. Her willingness to share her story and most vulnerable life moments has connected her to a community of families who have endured the unimaginable death of a baby, leaving her feeling less isolated in her grief.
This experience inspired her to create the Return to Zero Center for Healing which through healing retreats, research, education, and outreach will help others live wholeheartedly after loss. Not only is she working directly with parents who have lost a child, she is also dedicated to educating doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals to support and care for parents who experience the unimaginable loss of a child at birth and in infancy.
