"The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come to give you life and give it abundantly."
Despite spending most of my life on the west coast, I am now a Charleston-based wife to an amazing man who taught me how to love again after the loss of my first husband to cancer. I am also a mom to four young adult children - one biological daughter, a set of biological boy/girl twins, and a bonus daughter. I run a Grief and Health & Wellness practice where I work with clients all over the world to help them learn to live a healthy life again after loss.
When I was 34, my husband was diagnosed, out of the blue, with Stage 4 colon cancer. Ten months later, despite the fight of our life, he passed away leaving me a widow and single-mom to three young kids at the age of 35. The pain and loneliness of such a loss was unimaginable and changed so much about me and my life. I struggled to rebuild my life until I learned that God still had purpose for me and my life after this horrific loss. And so I left my career as a teacher, went back to school through the American Association of Christian Counselors, and became a Certified Grief, Life, and Wellness Coach. I knew my new purpose was not just to survive, but to thrive and live abundantly after loss, and help others do the same.
Learning to live with grief is so hard, but the good news is that you are not stuck where you are! In each call or session I have with a client, my intention is to understand your needs- all that you have been through and where you are at right now- and provide practical tools and a customized plan to help you find hope and healing on your grief journey. Yes, it’s hard work, but it’s so worth it! It’s time to live an abundant life again!
When I was 35, I lost my husband to colon cancer and found myself a widow, a single mom to three young kids, and immersed in a life I had never planned for. I was overcome with grief. I struggled with waking up each day and being productive. I struggled with the loneliness, with the way my life had so horrifically changed.
