Grief Coaching

I am a Master Certified Shift Your Grief™ Coach.   I was trained by Dr. Martha Jo Atkins in this creative and unique style of grief coaching.  It includes the use of guided imagery, energy techniques, meditation, ritual, intuition, art, thought work, along with more traditional kinds of grief methods.  We will work together to help you move through the tasks of grief and, when appropriate, create a new kind of relationship with your loved one.

Curious about working with me?  Got questions about grief coaching?  I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s what to do:


Initial Contact by Email or Phone


Call me at (253) 572-7926 and leave a message with your name, phone number and good times to call you back (along with your time zone). I am the only one who will listen to your message, so you can tell me whatever you want.

Let me know if it’s ok with you if I leave a message for you at your number.

I”ll call you or email you back within 24 hours, and usually on the same day you contact me. We will briefly talk about what you need and I”ll  answer questions you might have about my coaching practice.

This will help both of us decide whether or not to schedule a first appointment.


Our First Session:

Sessions are generally fifty-five minutes long and will be held on the phone or in my office in downtown Tacoma. There is initial paperwork to download, print, fill out, scan and email me:

Please remember to pay for your appointment prior to our meeting. Payment is due upon scheduling.

If you haven’t had a coaching session before, you might feel a bit nervous about your first appointment. It’s ok, most people do. I’m here for you. I’m here to help you tell me what’s on your mind, what you’ve been feeling or thinking about, what’s bothering you right now. Wherever you are is ok with me. Simply show up and be yourself.
