I help those experiencing grief and loss to navigate their personal journey through pain and into eventual peace. It is true, "To get through it, you have to go through it." But you don't have to go through it alone. As a grief coach, I am there to bear witness to that journey, step by step. I will hear your story and see your pain. I will help you find your way through the maze of loss and address old wounds that are brought to the surface in grief.
My journey into the world of grief and loss began with the death of my son, Adrian. In that same year, I also became a widow. Everything changed but the world continued. I often felt like an alien pretending to be human, just going through the motions. I found little genuine grief support. My experience finding my way to a life with meaning inspired me to become a grief coach, to help those suffering loss, providing a helping heart to guide them.
Being in grief is a lonely and bewildering experience. You sometimes feel cut off from the "normal" world. You might feel like you are an entirely different person. The future can be a frightening unknown. My commitment is to provide you with a partner to bridge those gaps and provide the grief support and help you need as you move into this new reality. Reach out today to learn more. Initial consultation is free and without obligation.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Coaching is an interactive experience where we will travel your grief journey together and seek a way forward through the myriad of feelings and memories that come up with grief and loss. Tapping into your psyche and finding the wounds that need to be addressed, both in your present stage of grief and your past, can lead to transformational healing. It is my goal to help you get there. There is no rush to a conclusion and no right way of doing it. We will find a way for you to navigate a world that might seem foreign without our loved ones there.
Grief is a psychological issue, but an undeniable connection exists between our minds and bodies. Our bodies hold the emotions we experience in grief and loss. We can release these emotions by using breath, motion, and sound. I will be your guide and companion in this process. Grief movement is not yoga and does not require flexibility or a certain level of physical fitness. All exercises can be done from a chair.
100%! What happens in our sessions stays in our sessions, just like seeing a therapist.
Initial consultation to meet and discuss your needs. This is $25 that will be refunded if we do not decide to work together or subtracted from the first weekly session if we do.
Rates vary depending on the service chosen.
However, if your funds are limited, we offer several pro bono (free) sessions per month. Please inquire about booking one of these spots if you cannot afford grief coaching.
Appointments may be made on our home page.
We also have an online grief group on Zoom every Tuesday at 7 pm PST (10 pm EST.) You may book a spot for this meeting on our client page here. Limited spots are available.
The time that your grief support process will take depends on the complexity of your grief, what type of goals you might set, and your openness to your process.
Grief never goes away completely, and I don't think it should. Yet we can find a way to happiness, peace, and fulfillment again without leaving the memories of our loved ones behind.
