There are many reasons for a person to grieve. It’s a natural process in which you experience conflicting emotions caused by a¬†change in patterns of behavior or the end of life, lifestyle, or an intangible loss. Most commonly, people associate grief with the death of a loved one. The grieving process also occurs when you move, lose a job, change or finish school, go through a divorce or separation, experience an injury which requires extensive healing, experience a significant change in business structure, change careers, take on new debt, gain a family member, or revise your personal habits. Intangible losses include losing trust, approval, security, or bodily control/function. For most, grief can affect drive, motivation, and personal growth.

what is grief coachingGrief coaching takes into account how people need balance, structure, support, and accountability through transitions. The collaboration between you and me looks at the big picture, how you are adjusting, and what you need to accomplish. We brainstorm solutions, navigate the bumps, and build an action plan that fits your life and lifestyle. I encourage healthy choices along each step.

There are moments when we all need extra support and encouragement to meet our goals when experiencing grief. Grief coaching¬†doesn’t eliminate conflicting emotions; it provides you a path to walk while you sort what you feel.
