Lonely, lost, hopeless and in pain?
Hi, I'm Ann Allen and I help you find your way back to you…I get you back into your life, again.
I've navigated many waters from my place of birth in New Zealand, to arrive in Vancouver WA, where I currently reside.
So many times we're challenged or stuck in our lives and so often, we just don't know why...sometimes, it's because we've lost someone or something very important to us and we're in so much pain, we just don't know what to do with it!
Nobody "gets" us or understands why we're acting the way we are.
They try and "fix" us with words and distractions to take our minds off our pain. That usually just isolates us, even more.
If you really knew me, you would know that I passionately love animals and speed. I just donated my motorbike, but I still feel the call of the road...
But most of all, you would know that I believe we have to be OK with who we are when we look in the mirror and know we’ll get it wrong sometimes, but that’s OK.
Talk with me and find out how you can get back into your life…start showing up and living, again…
I currently provide: One on One Grief Support (the most popular offering - AND available online to anywhere in the world!) - Grief Support Groups - The Pet Loss Program - Helping Children with Loss Program; all in the greater Vancouver, WA and Portand, OR areas.

"I can now say that I am happier than I have been in a long, long time. The issues and People that I worked on are just memories now, but they don't control or dominate my life anymore...Ann is loving, caring, insightful, experienced and trained, which overqualifies her to lead in this Grief Recovery Method...I felt completely safe and comfortable in opening up to Ann in total confidence..." - Mike S

I found the focus created by the program and the guidance provided by the facilitator to be instrumental in lifting a weight from my being that was holding me back emotionally in so many ways. Having this burden lifted from me, and learning the skills to recognize and process my grief, has been a real gift to me. Thank you for creating this program!1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Vancouver, WA03/26/2020
I needed help with a loss in a relationship. The program helped me realize this. I will be forever grateful!1-on-1 Online SupportParticipant in louisville, Ky03/24/2020
I was able to let go of stuck, stagnated emotions, which not only improved my mental health but my physical health as well. I feel I have more spaciousness in my current relationships, and I have the tools to work through past incomplete relationships.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Vancouver, WA03/07/2020
Having a framework for processing grief is so much more helpful than just floundering around trying to cope on my own. Searching and trying to implement other resources would have cost me more time and agony. The system's way of organizing the events and emotions so that a person can complete a goodbye letter in a meaningful manner, is a brilliant tool. So thankful to have met Ann and completed this program with her.Helping Children With LossParticipant in Vancouver, Washington10/03/2019
I appreciated having to draw a concrete timeline of my relationship and then articulating each major memory in a form that allows me to move on. I have spent years stuffing down my feelings because I have had to be functional. It was very healing to be able to discuss and then move through my grieving process.1-on-1 SupportParticipant in Vancouver, WA10/02/2019
Still early though I feel and see changes where ever I look, and if not I find making adjustments still available if I look. Time will tell. Excited and energized. Thank you.1-on-1 Support08/01/2019
