This photo is of me and my friend Peter (far left) and his old college roommate, while up at his cabin just months before his passing at age 57. This was a holy time and journey of accompaniment in his last days.

Grief & End of Life Coaching

Death, dying and losses are hard... really hard. Most people lack a companion in life who listens to us really well, who will simply be present, and will create a safe place that is confidential with the compassion we need as we navigate the roller coaster ride called grief. That is what a Grief Coach does best.

Why do we grieve anyway? We grieve because we loved.

Grieving is not a disease. It is a necessity that follows no linear pattern. Grief coaching, an untapped non-therapeutic paradigm, shifts the perspective that grief is an illness that needs to be treated, fixed, or cured. Instead, it empowers individuals to open themselves up to allow the normal and natural responses to loss … giving themselves permission to grieve. Thereafter, helping them to navigate through and thrive in their own personal sense of new normalcy. Grief coaching does not infer, provide, or replace professional counseling, therapy, or mental health services.

As your coach, I’m here to help individuals move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible. Need a companion, a “professional friend” on your journey of grief? I’d be blessed to accompany you.
