about coaching image
Grief coaching, based on the unique model developed by The Institute for Professional Grief Coaching, is a highly personalized process that generally unfolds chronologically and touches upon five areas:

  • Accepting permission to grieve  
  • Shifting to remembering and honoring the life and legacy of your loved one
  • Creating renewed attitudes, behaviors, and intentions
  • Embracing meaning and purpose in your own life going forward
  • Finding gratitude in the present moment

We will always miss our loved one; that is an undeniable fact of grief. With coaching, we can learn to integrate the loss into our lives so that grieving no longer creates an obstacle to moving forward.

As we say in recovery, "The only way out is through." By proactively taking small, manageable, meaningful, thoughtful steps towards rebuilding a fulfilling life that enables us to experience joy, wonder, excitement, curiosity, compassion, and gratitude, we can start shifting from sad to serene - even though our deceased loved one is no longer physically present with us.
*DISCLAIMER: While I believe that grief coaching is a worthwhile compliment to all other kinds of available grief work, such as support groups and 1:1 counseling, the coaching I offer is not based on a conceptual, intellectual, or theological perspective and does not take the place of these other modalities. As your coach, I am here to provide education and support. I do not imply, infer, or attempt to fix, heal, or cure grief, and I do not imply or provide professional counseling or therapy.
