Our private sessions will focus on self-care for your grieving body, mind, and spirit, as well as techniques to help you honor your love and process your loss in a healthy, meaningful way.

our grief philosophy

The Mindfulness & Grief System

There is no right or wrong way to cope with grief—as long as you are not causing yourself harm. It is a natural process that all of us experience in our own way.


The 5 Stages of Grief are not what pop culture makes them out to be. Dr. Kubler-Ross addressed that herself in the introduction to her seminal book.


Time is not what heals grief either. It is what you do with your time that matters. 

Rooted in the ancient practices of mindfulness and meditation and blended with modern grief research and best practices, The Mindfulness & Grief System offers a step-by-step approach to grief, with plenty of built in space for you to grieve YOUR way.  


From coping with the initial blow to making meaning and building resilience for all of life's losses, these 8 modules can be your lamp in the darkness, and invite you to spend your time wisely as you engage in your grief-work.
