Grief is the journey. Gratitude is the destination.®
Thank you for visiting! We're currently revamping our website to bring you an even better experience. Please bear with us as we work behind the scenes to enhance your browsing journey.

Grief is a universal experience and no individual or organization is exempt from its profound impact. We are forging a future where compassion and growth intertwine, guiding us from grief to gratitude and beyond.
Why do we grieve anyway? We grieve because we loved. Grieving is not a disease. It is a necessity that follows no linear pattern. Grief coaching, an untapped non-therapeutic paradigm, shifts the perspective that grief is an illness that needs to be treated, fixed, or cured. Instead, it empowers individuals to open themselves up to allow the normal and natural responses to loss … giving themselves permission to grieve. Thereafter, helping them to navigate through and thrive in their own personal sense of new normalcy. Grief coaching does not infer, provide, or replace professional counseling, therapy, or mental health services.

Our mission is to educate on the misunderstood and often avoided sensitive topic of grief; train and certify professional grief coaches to help individuals move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible; and, to help organizations create compassionate and grief-informed workplace cultures.

Whether you're an individual seeking personal growth, an entrepreneur aspiring to make a positive impact, a coach or mental health professional expanding services, or an organization fostering a compassionate wellness culture, our programs are designed for you. Join us in breaking the silence surrounding grief and loss, and let's together pave the way from grief to gratitude.

"It is time for our society to engage the dialogue actively and normalize the conversation of loss and grief so we can shift this dark and avoided perspective to one of awareness and education on this sensitive topic without fear, myths, or judgmental perceptions. When we better acknowledge the fragility of life itself from an empowering viewpoint and accept the unavoidable occasion of death, we can live better in the moment, affecting a life of joy, meaning, purpose, and fulfillment." − Dora Carpenter
