I’m a Love, Life & Relationship coach. I support people who have experienced a significant loss of any kind and want to rediscover themselves: I use proven processes to teach them the tools and action steps to move beyond the pain, isolation and resignation of grief and heartbreak, to complete what’s unfinished in their relationships (past and present), and shift old outdated beliefs so that they can be free to once again create and live a life full of joy & love.
Because of my personal history with the Grief Recovery Method I am very passionate about helping others to learn and use this process: I first learned about it to help me get past the shock and all the aftermath of the suicide of my dad in 2000. It not only restored me from that grief, but also from a lifetime of secretly wishing for a different childhood, a healthier and happier dad, etc... I’ve used the GRM again to help me navigate my next big loss, my divorce in 2009: Thanks to these tools I was able to honor my marriage despite the acute pain of it’s loss, and part with my husband in the most amicable way possible (that was before the “Conscious Uncoupling” program existed, which I now also teach as it complements the Grief Recovery Method very well).
Today the Grief Recovery Method has become an organic part of my life that helps me live more wholeheartedly, “complete” and authentic in all my relationships, past and present. And I love teaching this toolkit to my clients, so they can liberate themselves as well. I provide Grief Recovery One-on-One Coaching in person and online, as well as group coaching in Alexandria VA and the DC area.

I became aware of how much grief I had experienced which I had never processed. Doing the exercise for my relationship with my brother helped me move from pain and remembering the hurtful parts of our relationship to seeing my part, having a clearer and more balanced perspective of my brother which increased my compassion for him and myself. i did much deeper forgiveness work and cried, feeling I was processing years of emotions. At the end of the program I felt tremendous release and shifts in my energy. The program has been very valuable for me.Support Groups03/11/2022
I was amazed by the discoveries I made doing the process about the grief I was carrying around that I wasn't aware of! And to have a process where I could fully move through the grief and come through feeling uplifted, lighter, and be able to wholeheartedly love my ex-husband.. well, that is just miraculous. I have great respect for this program, and have already recommended it to a dozen or more people. This is the real deal.Support Groups03/11/2022
I believe the completion process is an important one. In my culture, we don't really grieve; we just continue on with life. I felt complete in my mind before the program, but the program allowed me to go deeper and find completion with certain emotions from the past about my father. I found value in the timeline and looking at the good and not so good memories, and then using the completion letter to apologize or forgive. I think it's good that I went through this process, vs just continuing on with life. I can't though say that I feel different after the process than before because I didn't feel bad about his transition before hand. What I do really appreciate is that I now have a process I can use with other forms of loss in my life, and that's where I think the benefits will be most deeply felt. I never thought of grief recovery as being so broadly applicable, so this was a big insight that will help me address and move through situations vs stuffing them away, so thank you so so much.Support Groups03/04/2022
This Grief Recovery Program has totally revitalized my emotional life. I had not realized how emotionally shut down I had become as a result of so much unprocessed grief going back into childhood until, suddenly, I was opening up and joy was finding freedom to flourish.One-on-One Online SupportParticipant in Alexandria, , Virginia11/19/2020
I was able to acknowledge the pain as well as be grateful for the value of a lossed romantic relationship that had become the foundation for all of the relationships that followed, including my marriage. My marriage ended much in part due to this past lossed relationship that I had never completed. With the ability to respectfully complete both lossed relationships, I finally feel hopeful that my future will include authentic happiness and love.One-on-One Support07/15/2019
Fantastic process. It provided peace and healing in ways that traditional therapy/counseling never provided. The GRI and the Specialists all over the world helping people through the GRM are awesome. I wish I would have found this when I was younger! The Grief Recovery Handbook needs to be on a bookshelf in every school, office, library, and house of worship. I will do my part and spread the word. Thank you to all the people at the GRI! God bless you!One-on-One Online SupportParticipant in Greenbelt, MD12/26/2018
