Before we get into the details of your results ...
Let's stop and acknowledge why you're here.
You've experienced the most difficult loss imaginable - the death of your child.
I'm a grieving mom too so I truly understand.
The pain you feel after losing a child is inexplicable and unfathomable.
It's THE most challenging thing you'll ever have to face.
Nothing can prepare you ... For the roller coaster of emotions and the floor dropping out from under you … you keep falling and falling and it seems you’ll never get your feet back on steady ground.
But you know ...
... you have to find the will and the way to bridge the gap … from where you are now (carrying the tremendous weight of pain) to where you want to be (healed and hopeful and yes, even happy).
You've already taken an important step by being here and I'm so glad.
Now about those quiz results.

Keep reading, and I'll tell you how.
But first, let's get clear on some of the stories you've been telling yourself that could be holding you back.
Stories like ….
“If you love deeply, you are going to get hurt badly. But it’s still worth it."
~ C.S. Lewis
I want you to know, as a mom who's been there, even if your mind still continually asks, “HOW am I going to survive this?” - because you care so deeply for others ... you WILL heal and find hope for the future.
Imagine for a moment what life would be like if you ...
Stop right now, and repeat after me, “I forgive myself. I love myself. I’m a good mother.”
Even if you don’t wholeheartedly agree, saying affirmations when you get hit with waves of grief is a good way to interrupt the painful thoughts and feel better.
Here's a resource to learn more about how to get your brain unstuck when it starts spinning with painful thoughts so you can feel better fast.
I'm not here to spout clichés ... like “time heals all wounds” and “everything happens for a reason.”
But I am here to tell you, you CAN move forward after loss and even be happy again without moving on.
Because you crave a feeling of peace and safety ...
You’ve probably already taken a number of steps to help yourself survive—and maybe you’re even doing OK.
But as you know, a mom’s grief journey doesn’t end; it’s like walking thousands of miles knowing you still have thousands more to go.
As a mom who's been on this "life after loss" journey for 20 years, I’m here to help you move from just surviving or even doing OK to "I never knew the deep wounds could actually heal and I'd feel ready to embrace and enjoy life again!"
“We’ve been led to believe that in order to heal … we need to ‘find closure.’ The task is not to seal off a loss, but rather to find a way to live meaningfully with it.”
~ Tom Zuba

Hi, I'm Jennifer, a Life and Loss Coach
When my son died in 2003, my world ended … but the rest of the world carried on as usual.
I set out into the “after” knowing I must find a way to honor my son and transform the pain of losing him into new meaning and purpose for my life.
It took over a decade but I fit the bits and pieces of myself and my life back together. I left my 20+ year career in finance/accounting and became a Certified Life Coach and Grief Recovery Specialist.
I'm passionate about helping women HEAL from unresolved pain, REGAIN confidence, DISCOVER their purpose, and live a RESTORED and TRANSFORMED life.
I lead my clients through a proven program that walks them through the process of letting go of the pain—while holding on to the love and beautiful memories—and into a new world of feeling free, open to new possibilities, willing to be vulnerable, more present and fully participating in day-to-day activities, and most of all restored ... ready to embrace and enjoy life again with passion and purpose.
I live in Texas with my two wonderful children, the cutest dog ever, and an incredibly supportive fiancé who puts up with me, my insanely busy schedule and need for independence. Some of my favorite things are coffee (with heavy cream), Crossfit, ALL kinds of music and books, red wine, and the beach .
