Ashley found her passion early in life following a difficult childhood overshadowed by her father’s substance abuse and eventual suicide. Surprisingly, Ashley came to discover that her darkest and most painful period of life, was in fact, the very catalyst that uncovered her “WHY” for being: to serve others and create a safe space to explore life’s most challenging questions. Ashley is a heart-centred and purpose-driven leader who instils hope and healing through her story of resilience. Ashley’s greatest empowerment comes when she is able to connect with others and help them find the resilience of hope that can empower them—the hope that can only be found in the midst of great challenges and journeys through grief.
The Grief Recovery Method certification training is powerful and intense. It helps us deeply experience what our clients will be going through. The best part is now I know for sure that recovery from grief is possible, since I’m stepping through it day by day.06/08/2022

Our training was AMAZING! I am still in awe of how it enhanced the way I listen not only to others, but myself. Ashley was supportive, genuine, and I absolutely loved the space she created for us.03/29/2022
This method has depth and weight there is a freedom that was felt in the process that all who grief can move forward..The relatability of pain no matter what the loss is was moving.03/28/2022
This experiential training sets you up from the start for success. The ability to relate to and learn from others while taking part in the process itself is a gift. The bonus is all of the resources and the support system embedded into training from the institute itself through the website. I cannot wait to bring this relevant and important work into my community!02/14/2022
My experience with GRM training was exceptional. I was able to receive the information and also put it to use in real time in my own life. The experience of this training was invaluable and I can not wait to share my knowledge with others.02/01/2022
