“The goal isn't to figure out how to get back to where you were, or to get back what you lost that can't be regained — it's to figure out how to walk the path you're on to the best of your ability.”
Let's talk about grief.
Grief is often the price we pay for loving one another. Without love, there is no grief and there is no mourning. Loss is painful because we cared so deeply about the person (or circumstance) we lost.
In that sense, grief can be a price we pay — not gladly, but at least with an open heart — for the blessing of having experienced the kind of love that hurts to be taken away.
But still, we are left feeling depleted, numb, and wondering “what now?”
That person or situation will never be replaced, but there is a path forward for you. Loss is the only guarantee we have in life -- and you still have the gift of a big, fulfilling, and meaningful life to live. Don't wait.
But here’s the thing - it can take weeks, even months, to find a therapist or psychiatrist that you really mesh with. Someone who you trust that provides the right perspective, gives you a better way to think of things, and offers tools to begin your healing.
What if you could start putting the pieces of your life back together right now, instead of months from now?

You are not alone in this experience.

A Path to Wholeness After Grief
What's Included in The Course
Video 1: My Grief Story
When I was diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma at the age of 31, everything changed overnight. My grief story is about losing my health, a part of myself, and the idea of where I thought my life was going. It’s how I picked the pieces of my life back and and figured out a new path forward, one that was different than what I expected — but wonderful in its own way.
Video 2: Grieving The Loss of a Person
Have you experienced the pain of losing someone special and important to you? Recovery may seem distant and impossible, and that's because you are actually grieving 2 things: the loss of the idea of your person, and their physical presence in your life. Understanding the complexity of this grief will help you on your recovery path forward. This lesson details the 4-step process to begin your path to wholeness after the loss of a person.
Video 3: Grieving the Loss of a Circumstance
You just lost a way of life you've always known... now what? You're on an entirely new path, learning to adapt, and facing new challenges and struggles you never expected. What if the wisdom, growth, and development you could cultivate from your loss could be on the brink of blooming, right now? This lesson will help you understand how to take the loss of a circumstance and transform it into something meaningful, that elevates you to a greater level of wisdom, so that you can see your new circumstances as an opportunity rather than a loss?
Video 4: Grieving The Loss of a Relationship
A relationship break-up isn’t a failure. It’s a lesson (and blessing) to you. There was something you had to learn about yourself before you were ready to meet the person that you’re meant to be with. It's time you gave yourself permission to feel the pain without adding to your suffering. This lesson will teach you how to navigate your emotions, gain new perspective, and move on.
Video 5: The Difference Between Grief & Depression
Grief introduces complicated emotions that can stay with us for awhile. In the midst of grieving, it can be difficult to understand if what you're experiencing are "normal" signs of grief, complicated bereavement, or clinical depression. This video lesson explains the difference between each, and how to seek help at each stage.
