Transform Your Life After Loss ®

Move Forward  - Without Moving On
Want to stop feeling detached and going through the motions... like you're observing life instead of living it?

Jennifer has been a lifesaver for me over the past year. 

She has guided me through many challenges and helped me figure out real positive solutions. She is a great listener and huge help with knowledge in many areas. 

I always feel a huge relief after speaking with her!

  • You're not grieving wrong
  • You haven't lost your mind 
  • You're not alone
  • You're going to be okay

Not sure? Check out a few samples.

It’s a common (but harmful) belief that moving forward means you're 'moving on'

Even though it's not true, the idea of healing can feel like "moving on" and forgetting.

And since that's the last thing you want after losing your loved one, you avoid actively healing and feeling better.

Some common "avoidance" methods...

  • Working 24/7
  • Drinking a bottle of wine every night
  • Shopping for clothes you'll never wear
  • Exercising to the point of collapse
  • Staying in bed and sleeping all day

But all that avoiding can result in you...

  • Having no interest in anything
  • Not wanting to face the world
  • Not being able to do normal things in life
  • Not having any idea what to do with the rest of your life

You feel like you might be stuck in grief forever.

And you wonder, "Is it normal to be in this much pain after 4 years?"

Avoiding is part of surviving... and in between avoiding, you try all the things that are supposed to help.

Since you do hope to be a functioning person again, you've probably tried any number of things to process your grief. Maybe you...
  • Read books (It's OK That You're Not OK, I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye, Permission to Mourn, and many more)
  • Joined support groups (most were completely depressing)
  • Went to therapy (and figured out most therapists aren't equipped to handle grief)
  • Waited (for time to live up to the promise and heal your wounds)
But none of these things worked.
If you've done everything you can think of and are left wondering, "WHY does it still hurt so bad?" ...

Take heart knowing this,

Grief and love are interconnected.

Love perseveres... it doesn't end... so grief doesn't either.

The good news is, there is a way to heal and let go of pain, without letting go of your loved one.

Jennifer gave me soooo many tools that I use on a daily basis, to be happy, and to help others.

I'm so thankful for Jennifer's guidance through all my life challenges. What a world of difference she's made in my life.

I am indebted to her forever !

Who am I to say you can move forward without moving on?

Hi, I'm Jennifer ...

When my infant son died in 2003, my world ended. But the rest of the world carried on as usual.

Over the course of many years I healed and learned how to be happy and fulfilled in life again. But getting there was a long, lonely road.

I want your road to be less long and less lonely.

After a 20+ year corporate career, I felt a calling to DO MORE to help women going through the hardest times in their lives and doing it alone.

I quit my job to become a Certified Life Coach and Grief Specialist.

And now, my dream is to help you...

  • Believe life has more in store for you than just surviving and pretending
  • Accept the ways you need to grieve... and stop worrying about what other people think and expect
  • Get unstuck and figure out what to do with the rest of your life (which, by the way, can be so much better than "good enough")

Even if you've been stuck for 5 or 8 or 10+ years, you CAN get unstuck and enjoy life again - i.e. laugh, joke with friends, dance, make plans for the future, and invest in relationships again.

You don't have to figure this out on your own.

You are amazing. I love how you have taken what you learned from losing your precious baby boy to help so many others. Thanks for changing the world, one person at a time. I can't express the depth of my appreciation and thankfulness I have for you as you have shared your life and compassion.
