There’s nothing more earth-shattering than losing a loved one. It rips apart the fabric of your entire life, including who you are and where you’re going.
Those big, giant loss are painful, as well as scary as hell. Most of us try to get through it on our own. Wondering where to turn. Wishing we had support.
It’s time for that to end. It’s time we acknowledge that grief is a real and normal part of life. It’s hard. It’s messy. And nobody should do it alone.
That’s why I created Reclaiming Yourself After Loss, an online workshop, and why I’ve written The Secret Life of Grief: A Memoir. Because we all need to help each other out.

I believe in telling it like it is–in a thoughtful, sensitive and occasionally foul-mouthed way! I believe that kindness and empathy can solve a lot of the world’s problems. Anger and sadness are just another tool set to help us get there.
