"What a gift Debbie Augenthaler has given us! Grief is a road each of us must travel in our lives that feels at once impossibly difficult yet completely inevitable. If ever a journey called for a wise companion, it is the trail from loss to healing. In You Are Not Alone, Debbie has descended to the depths of her own grief to surface with treasures in the form of practical insights and simple suggestions for healing. If you or someone you love is facing a loss, one could not ask for a better guide."

Shelley Reciniello, Ph.D., author of The Conscious Leader,
Winner, Best Motivational Business Book, INDIE Excellence Awards 2015

"Debbie Augenthaler is that rare combination of someone who has endured great personal loss and a skilled, caring clinician who has figured out how to use that experience to help others cope successfully with grief. Her book is unique because, as she says, “she gets it.” She is a beautiful writer who inspires the reader to imagine the transformative power of grief and leads the way to healing and hope."

Judie Alpert, Ph.D.,
Professor of Applied Psychology, New York University

"Writer and psychotherapist Debbie Augenthaler has done what she set out to do: based on her personal and professional experience, she has written a book which will assist those dealing with the death of a loved one. Without question, the reader will gain comfort from Ms. Augenthaler's understanding, experience, genuine concern, and humanity."

Yitzhak Berger, Ph.D., CRC,
Adjunct Associate Professor, New York University

"You Are Not Alone” is a must read for anyone dealing with extreme loss, and a recommended book for the rest of us. It’s a wonderful combination of story and guide. Organized in a way that makes it both a riveting read, as well as a practical how-to book on rebuilding one’s life after devastating loss."

About The Book

Are you grieving? Do you know someone who is grieving and you don’t know how to help them?

 You Are Not Alone takes readers into Debbie’s personal journey of grief, from the first gripping chapter, when her husband dies unexpectedly in her arms. Throughout the book, Debbie takes readers by the hand and offers them gentle insights and suggestions for healing and hope, while sharing her powerful story of loss and the spiritual journey that led her to know love never dies.

This book is a life raft in a grief storm.

 Just as she has helped many as a psychotherapist specializing in trauma and grief, Debbie and her wisdom can help you too. She wants you to know:

— It’s okay to be a griever. Don’t feel like you have to hold it together for others.

— Grief is not linear. There is no timetable. Your experience of grief is as unique as you are.

Beginning to heal and adjust to your new life doesn’t mean having to let go of the person you love.

You Are Not Alone will gently guide you from grief, to healing, to hope and transformation.

Meet the Author Debbie Augenthaler

Debbie is a psychotherapist with a private practice in New York City, where she has specialized in trauma, grief, and loss. Interweaving eastern philosophy, energy healing, and spiritual practices from cultures around the world, Debbie bridges together traditions of ancient and modern, east and west, the wisdom of the ages, and the many different ways people have ritualized grief and healing. She uses time-honored practices to inform the tools she shares with readers and clients.

Debbie holds a deep curiosity and interest in how people have been dealing with grief and loss since the beginning of time. She helps normalize common feelings and experiences for people who are grieving, and holds space for each of us to experience grief in our own way and time, because grief is not linear. There are many gifts that accompany loss, including spiritual awakenings, discovering the connection with forever love, developing deep compassion, and grateful appreciation for the blessings along the way - from grief to healing to transformation and joy. Debbie has walked this path throughout her life and wants to help you on your path from grief to joy.

Prior to becoming a therapist she had a successful career in the financial industry for over twenty years. Debbie has a Master’s Degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University and completed a two year post-graduate Advanced Trauma Studies program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy. In 2012 she received the NYU Steinhardt Award for Outstanding Clinical Service. With the connection of a shared experience, Debbie guides the reader through grief to transformation and a new beginning.
